“Your words are my food, your breath my wine. You are everything to me.”

~Sarah Bernhardt

Sadly, the last day of our journey arrived. With our luggage packed and the rental car filled with gas, we headed back to San Francisco. Crossing over the Golden Gate Bridge, I marveled at the splendor of everything we experienced in the past five days. From a bridge that was considered one of the modern Wonders of the World to the many varieties of delicate grapes that grew on the vines, to the friendships developed and deepened, it was a time that will forever live in our hearts.

We decided to spend the morning before our flight left at Fisherman’s Wharf. We strolled up and down the docks and ate the famous clam chowder at a small restaurant on the water. We stood at the end of the dock, hoping to see some of the porpoises that frequent the bay, but was told that due to the fishermen complaining about them, measures had been taken to keep them away. While sitting and eating our clam chowder, GW, Paul, and Tracie all spotted some, but I never did. Could see the ripples in the water where they had surfaced and then dived into the depths, but never saw any of them.

After lunch, we walked the streets of Fisherman’s Wharf and visited several shops. Soon, it was time to leave for the airport.

We didn’t exactly leave our hearts in San Francisco, but we did leave a part of it in the Wine Country. GW and I agreed it was the best vacation we’ve ever taken. It is indeed a fact that we will be visiting again soon.
