rosespetitemaison meets mypetitemaison
Back from a whirlwind vacation to Northern California!!
My husband and I traveled to Northern California for a little anniversary trip.
That is why I have been MIA from the blogs.
We had a wonderful time visiting family, and visiting new friends.
I will do another post about wine country soon.
This post is dedicated to all things fun and spooky.
I have been visiting Tracie's blog for quite some time now. We enjoy the same kinds of French flea market items, foods, movies, and all things spooky. So why not get together for the first time and go on a Sonoma Ghost tour. Our husbands were on board too. The first night we got up to the town Tracie lives in, we walked around the cutest town square, and took a short walk to meet Tracie and her husband Shane for dinner. Tracie and I hit it off right away and couldn't stop chatting long enough to even look at the menu. We are two peas in a pod for sure. Our husband's enjoyed chatting as well. We had a lovely meal together, and planned for the next day.
I had previously arranged a tour with Carla Heine of Sonoma Ghost Tours. You see, my husband and I like to watch Samantha Brown on the Travel Channel. We saw her take the tour and I was hooked. I told Tracie about it, and she is like me, we love spooky stuff, and Halloween. So we were to meet Carla in front of the Sonoma City Hall for our late afternoon tour. The city hall built in the 1800's was amazing.
In the photos, you see a few of the haunted places we visited. The big white house was a sea captain's home complete with the widows walk. Just like in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. The no trespassing signs you see are on an old house that has been boarded up since the 1940's. Amazing, and spooky. Apparently the contents is all inside, right down to the china and silverware.
As you can see, from the photos, Tracie and I with Carla our tour guide. Tracie blond, me not blond. Carla in the middle, has lived in Sonoma her entire life and knows it and the history so well. If you ever get a chance take the tour. Just google Sonoma ghosts!
One photo is of the husbands and Carla. My husband on the left, Tracie's on the right.
After the 2 hour tour, we all had a wonderful dinner together.
Tracie and I hope to get together sometime again in the future. Meanwhile we will have to email and visit each others blogs.
Please visit my blog later in the week for more fun in Northern California.
I did a whole walk just snapping photos of old homes in Healdsburg California. It's like hooked on houses.
Enjoy your Sunday and the week ahead.
Had fun, but glad to be back home. I have so many new orders to fill for Christmas, if there are any elves out there, please show up at my house tomorrow.
PS, we celebrated our 34TH anniversary yesterday Oct 23rd.
