What a nice break before we head home to Floyd County Virginia.A surprise for us was the town was having a Halloween Festival with all the merchants giving out goodies to the kids all dressed up in costumes.
 We had really good meal in town and then made a little tour of the wine country here in the Napa Valley.  Must be at least 100+ wineries in this valley. We are about 45 miles North of the San Francisco, California area.

This is some beautiful country here and so much different then the Bay area - much more country & reminds me of our area somewhat back in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Video of visit also shows the great coffin race. "CLICK"
