Old Scaramento & Petaluma
07.08.2010 - 07.08.2010
The Fairfield Inn in Sacramento was lovely, clean, and had a free breakfast with fresh waffles, bananas, yogurt and granola.
We then ventured out to Old Sacramento. What a GREAT town! Totally a tourist trap but really nicely done, a lot of great fun shops and restaurants. People walking around in 1800's dress and stopping and putting on little skits in the street. Just lovely.
Then in one of the Chamber of Commerce brochures it said that we HAD to go to the Old Sacramento cemetery. We just couldn't argue with that reasoning, so we went and it was really nice. The pictures just don't do it justice. It was really beautiful.
Next we drove to Petaluma, we checked into the Metro Hotel. It is great. We have our own little cabin. It has a little kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, back outdoor cafe area and a really cool front porch.
The weather here is fabulous bright, sunny, 75 degrees with no humidity.
Dinner at Hana Sushi in Rohnert Park CA. My step-sister Janice said it was one of the best Sushi places in the North West. She was right, the food was excellent.
We then drove back to Petaluma and met with Janice, Kyle and her boyfriend Mike. We went to 'Tres Hombres' for a few drinks. Seeing Janice and Kyle again was amazing! We haven't seen each other for 30 YEARS!!
