NAPA, CALIFORNIA U. S. A.

During the fall of 2014 Serena and I partook of a free flight, courtesy of Air Canada from Vancouver, B C. Canada to San Francisco, return.

On this trip, using my Fuji Pix ST6000 and her iPad, Serena took most of the pictures.

After visiting Fort Bragg we drove Hwy. 101 & I-580 to the town of Napa then backtracked to the town of Fairfield where we stayed in a Courtyard by Marriott courtesy of my Marriott training.

The next day, courtesy of the Napa Valley Tourist Association we rode the Napa Valley Wine Train.

COURTYARD FAIRFIELD BY MARRIOTT

On the first evening we walked through the neighbouring plaza.
There we found the `
Peking Restaurant/a>'.
Serena had the shrimp fried rice while I had the `house special' chow mein.

On the second evening, while watching television we saw an ad for `Red Lobster'.

Serena says, "Ooh, that looks good!".

Quietly I opened my laptop and did a Webcrawler search.

Inviting Serena for an evening stroll I led her over the neighbouring overpass to the other side of the freeway, to her surprise, and delight, a `Red Lobster'.

She had the mixed platter of; lobster, shrimp, salmon, etc. and I had a delicious steak.

(Napa Wine Train  Napa, California)

At St. Helena, California the train pauses while the engine moves from the front of the train to the back.

The back of the train became the front and then the train started South.

Just before reaching St. Helena we were moved from the lounge car to the dinning car and served our meal while sitting still.

Thusly, on the return run, we were sitting on the East side of the car and were able to take pictures with less window reflection.

I certainly urge anyone who wants a pleasant holiday to vist the Napa area, their fine; hotels, restaurants, and stores.
