For the past 15 years or so I have traveled mostly to work. The fun trips were happening less and less. Now that I have been single for a little over a year it is time to head out and have an adventure again. I am taking off by myself on a road trip to Northern California. I used to live in Cotati, CA, (Near Santa Rosa). That's where Out On A Whim or Whimbeads is now. I lived there in 1981 & '82. It is a beautiful part of California located in Sonoma County. Wine country. I really like wine! The Russian River Jazz Festival has been held in Guerneville, which is very close to Santa Rosa right on the Russian River. Follow the river and you end up at the ocean in Jenner by the Sea. Just south is Bodega Bay where The Birds was filmed. I am learning to be single again. I traveled very little with my husband and really missed having someone to go camping with. Now I am going alone for a few days, but my brother, Ken is joining me for four days including the Jazz Festival weekend. He lives in Idaho. We rarely see each other. It will be so great to bead, hike, float on the river and listen to music. I leave early tomorrow, Labor Day, and won't be back until about the 15th. I am not bringing my computer. It's camping and I plan to really escape! Never from Beads, though!!! I will have my camera, so will post some pictures when I come home. I am staying at The Willows.
