Day 23 – You had me at Merlot.

What a difference three months can make.

We were in Napa the first week of March, before everything started to get crazy. During that time, it was bustling rooms of noisy people. Hugs with friends we were excited to see, and lots of choices of where we wanted to eat and drink.

This time, Napa was very different, but not in a bad way. We really appreciated what they were doing to keep people safe and keep businesses going.

We were often the only people in a room (Yay!) and had amazing individualized service (yay!). Most of our friends working there were behind glass partitions (boo) and we could only wave and say hello for a brief moment (boo).

We enjoyed having the castle mostly to ourselves.

And, Olivia enjoyed FaceTiming with her bestie while enjoying her grape juice at Rombeaur.

After visiting a few of our favorite places. I had about five hours of work and that took me well into the night. But, what a great place to have to work.

We have really loved our time here with Karen and Jeff and the beautiful Napa Valley. It will always be one of our favorite places and now we have a few more wine clubs and friends to come visit next time.

As we start to work our way south, we are getting nervous. We may have to make some changes as we go to assure we can stay safe.
