Day 6 – Sadly Our Last Day!

9 Oct
Dear Readers,
The last and final day of our biking trip – Day 6 – Dry Creek Valley Loop: 27 Miles. Reflecting on the last six days of magnificent made to order weather ranging from the upper 70’s to low 80’s sunny everyday with evenings and mornings cooler in the upper 50’s. The rain weather gear stayed in our suitcases, and sunblock and sunglasses used everyday!
Turn right out of the parking area onto Matheson Street, how appropriate, “turn right” and yes we did turn right, all of us, turned right into a weeks worth of great biking, great weather, great food, great adventures, great sceneries, great wines and most certainly right into great friendships for miles and miles! 
I love referring to our trip as an active vacation. We actively biked over mountains, we actively biked through the Sonoma winds, we actively made fun of each other, we actively laughed until our sides hurt… we actively forgot everything else except our love for each other! 
As all good things must come to an end, we Turned left into the parking area for Hotel Healdsburg…For this is the end to our exceptional trip experience!
Our farewell lunch was at Barndiva, a charming restaurant with an outdoor patio to dine on sustainably sourced cuisine and bid dear friends good-bye. Again how appropriate for our last meal together…Barndiva website –  ”At Barndiva we believe a great meal should have elements of both celebration and tradition, and that optimally it should be a sensate hunt for what the French call ‘Gout du revenez-y’ the taste you return to” 
Our friendships “sustainably sourced” with much “celebration” and already talks of turning the trip into a “tradition”…So for all the right turns and for all the right reasons, for it is only right…”the taste you return to”! Our reunion dinner has already been planned for it is only right!
Asklotta and staff will rightfully MIND YOUR BUSINESS today feasting on sweet memories (the taste you return to) of an active vacation of proudly biking 200 miles in six days of beautiful backroads and beautiful sustainably sourced friendships!
Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!
Kindest regards,
President and CEO

    I am jealous. That sounds like a more vacationy vacation than I’ve taken in a long time.
