So let's see, where did we leave off? Ahh, the B&B -- it was The Sonoma Chalet. Joe, the owner, has a series of cottages all decorated in period style that are lovely and homey. Don't come if you "need" to watch TV or if Junior can't live without video games. If you want to be entertained, I'd suggest Laura's Cottage -- you can spend some quality time telling stories about "The Lamp."
My stories revolved around a gay Vulcan minstrel. ;-)
The view from our chalet's porch included much wildlife --
Deer who liked the plants around the Chalets:
A frog who liked our front step:
Turkey vultures and the occasional Golden Eagle and hawk who, in groups as large as 12, surfed the air currents off the hill behind our chalet:
A crazy woodpecker who guarded his telephone pole very zealously:
And my very favorite -- California Quails who came out in a covey of 15 our last morning looking for breakfast:
Part three, Adventures in Viticulture, tomorrow.
