My wife and I decided to spend Valentine’s Day relaxing in the wine country in Northern California. After packing our suitcases, we jumped in the car and drove off to our romantic get away. After just under 2 hours we arrived at our destination, the Rancho Caymus Inn located in Rutherford, which sits between Yountville and St. Helena in the Napa Valley. For those not familiar with the region, Yountville is just north of the town of Napa.
As it turns out we couldn’t have ordered better weather. Valentine’s Day had sunny skies with temperatures in the mid 70 degrees (F) and barely a breeze. We enjoyed a spring like day in mid-February (winter). How good is that!
In the morning we strolled the streets in the towns along the Napa Valley corridor weaving in and out of the many shops. Mid-day we drove down some of the back-roads and felt the peacefulness and beauty of Napa Valley’s countryside. For lunch and dinner we ate at superb restaurants, part of which the Napa Valley is known for, and last but not least we snapped a whole bunch of photo’s along the way.
It was a wonderful way to spend our Valentine’s Day (2013)! We hope you all had a terrific day as well!
