Kayaking on the Napa River - California

Kayaking on Napa River with family
One of the fun things we did with our family on our summer vacation was to go on a Napa River History Kayak Tour with the ‘Enjoy Napa Valley’ tour company. With over 25 years of experience and all of the knowledge of a Napa native (because he is one!), our guide, Justin, did one awesome job of taking great care of our group and entertaining us with the local history, all while we paddled along the Napa riverfront. Justin was personable, informative, and a lot of fun. The guided tour lasted about an hour and then we had another hour to paddle on our own further up or down the river. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. If you are ever in the Napa Valley, we recommend checking out ‘Enjoy Napa Valley’ tours – a great way to experience the Napa area from a different perspective.


We're Back!

Had an amazing time away! It was the best road trip! We had an awesome time with friends & family – including anniversary & birthday celebrations, family reunions, and a fun kayak tour in Napa. We also had a great time exploring the California coast, as well as visiting favorite places & new places. Great times ~ many cherished memories…

Beth relaxing in the middle of a lavender field – one of her favorite places to be! She is doing really well – still on chemo, but it’s not keeping her down.

Norm is thinking…“This is one big windmill!”

No, we didn’t go to Holland. This is actually one of two ginormous windmills in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Surprise, surprise!
