Fun at The Inn Above the Tide

My wife and I took a much needed weekend getaway. Every year for our birthdays, we travel up north to San Francisco. It's kind of like our very own tradition now.

This time we stayed in Saulsalito which is the first city right past the Golden Gate Bridge. Saulsalito is home to one of our favorite restaurants; Scomas. We did not stop to eat at Scomas this time.

We stayed at Inn Above the Tide which was out of this world. I would definitely recommend a stay here. Especially if you can appreciate, fireplaces, spa tubs and being 5 feet from the Marina. They also have complimentary wine and cheese every evening. At night, my wife and I stepped out into the balcony and watched a few sea lions swim.

This time around, we took a day trip to Napa. We visited 3 wineries. Clos Pegase was our first stop. The grounds were amazing. The winery itself, is home to many pieces of art.

Clos Duval our second and our last stop was our next stop. Nice place too. My wife and I ate our lunch on their picnic grounds.

Our last winery stop was at The Hess Collection Winery This place was really nice. It was a drive up the hill. There is a very nice Modern Art collection here. I would highly recommend visiting.

We has dinner at La Toque and had tried thier tasting menu paired with wine. I will say that the wine at La Toque was the best I had all day.
