We headed off to Healdsburg early Friday morning – for a 3 day weekend away.
Staying at the Honor Mansion – a truly outstanding B&B within walking distance of the downtown square in Healdsburg – we caught up with good friends now living in Healdsburg for Friday lunch, wine tasting and dinner.
Our Friday lunch wine tasting at Williamson Wines just off the square was truly amazing. Williamson specializes in food and wine pairings – and does a superb job of bringing together just the right food with just the right wine together in your mouth. I’ve never experienced anything like what we had at Williamson!
Healdsburg is still small enough to enjoy on foot while within easy reach of some of the best wineries in California out in Dry Creek Valley. On Saturday, after the morning Farmers Market, the Healdsburg Art Festival was underway. We enjoyed visiting with the artists before heading back to the Honor Mansion for some swimming pool coolness and downtime before dinner with friends. A record 103 degree temperature made the pool an extra special treat!
Early this morning, I wandered out before sunrise to capture the Halloween display at a home just up Grove Street from the Mansion. Happy Halloween – indeed!
