A trip to Healdsburg

On this long weekend, we decided to make a day trip up to Healdsburg and Santa Rosa, which is near Sonoma wine country. One of my friends — who has been a supporter of my photography since picture #1 (thanks, buddy!) — lives there and volunteered to be a tour guide. Perfect!

(Well, the only thing that would make it more perfect was if we could’ve also seen our friend R., who lives in the area too but was away for the weekend. Looking forward to this upcoming weekend, though, R.!)

Anyway, off we went.

First, we stopped by a bakery for breakfast in Santa Rosa:


Village Bakery
1445 Town and Country Dr
Santa Rosa, CA 95404

We then got a personal tour of Healdsburg:

And then had lunch at a place that had $4 pickle appetizers. Their pickles must’ve been something wonderful.

And at this point, we were stuffed but freezing because we forgot our jackets, and our spoiled California selves can’t bear it when the temperature drops below 55F (true story). So we stopped by B.’s favorite coffee place for some hot tea.

As we headed back, we saw a sign for the Charles M. Schulz Museum — the creator of Peanuts! J. had always wanted to visit, so it worked out perfectly. Also, J. is apparently a secret artist at heart. Either that, or he totally traced the Linus figure. Personally, I was aiming for Charlie Brown’s 2nd cousin, and I think my drawing captures him perfectly.

Aside from the massive traffic on the way back, it was a great trip. Thanks for showing us around, B!

  1. what a fun day!! the food looks so delicious. i think i would have enjoyed the museum too.
    yep, know exactly what you mean about being spoiled with warm temperature. For me, it’s anything <70 degrees =)

  2. I am really loving all of your photographs! And OMG, it’s my dream to visit the Charles M. Schultz museum (I’m a HUGE Peanuts fan). Seeing the photos on your blog just made me want to visit it even more!
