Yippy! I’m free!

Jumping into the HHR  and leaving Paul in Yuba City to work on Friday morning I headed to Jamestown to meet up with the girls for some R & R and of course lots of laughs, wine, shopping and way too much great food!  We stayed in a cute B & B, The McCaffrey House near the town of Twain Harte where Stephanie and Michael, the Inn Keepers took excellent care of us.  We enjoyed wonderful breakfasts each morning and tasted some local wines in the afternoon.  Our rooms looked out over the forest where I sat and enjoyed the many birds.  I know Paul and I get to enjoy scenery like this most days but to have a whole bed to myself, someone else cooking and cleaning,  all the hot water I can use and spending 3 days laughing with friends was even more relaxing than my everyday!

The girls!

Friday night after wine and cheese we took the 30 minute drive to Columbia where we enjoyed a local theater group performing Harvey.  What a fun story about Elwood and his Pooka, Harvey!  I had no idea of the story or what a Pooka was and was completely entertained by these actors and the story.  The Fallon Theater was very cozy and comfortable.

Waking to the smell of bacon we arrived about 9:30 in the dining room, well most of us did! for a huge breakfast all at the hands of Stephanie and of course Michael.  Pushing ourselves out the door we took a drive to  the village of Murphy’s where they were celebrating The Day of the Dead!  I didn’t even know what that was really all about.  There were lots of people dressed in costumes, lots of face painting and most shops had a shrine complete with skulls and candles!

A coffee, the paper and Day of the Dead!

We did a lot of shopping, wine tasting and lost Lani!  which is to be expected except this time her phone went dead so we couldn’t even use technology to find her!  She had given up and was ordering lunch when she finally spotted  Vikki, who had been running up and down main street looking!  Yeah, we were reunited and finished the afternoon with  lunch and some more wine tasting!

Before we lost her!
