Northern Californai Day 5: Discovering Sonoma

Currently, I'm sitting in the garden at the Sunflower Caffe in Sonoma, California sipping some great coffee and emailing students. Although, I am thankful for more cubicle, nothing beats an open air office beneath a vine-laced trellis and a desk that seat beneath a tree next to a pond and fountain. Northern California is beautiful, and is the first place I've visited outside of Oregon that I could seriously see myself moving to.

There are bird chirping while jazz music plays softly in the background, and the waitress may be the friendliest person I've met on this trip thus far. I discovered the Sunflower Caffe when watching Diners Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network with the Franklins. I decided immediately to place it on my list of Northern California destinations and have not been dissappointed. What can be better than a duck sandwich for lunch (especially when you are a Beaver fan--they could make a killing in Corvallis)?

I wasn't sure what I was going to do between the necessary 11am hotel checkout and the 4:30 check in to the college fair. However, I just got a ton of work done, and am enjoying a lovely afternoon. Thank you Justin Hudec for letting me take your trip. Northern California, I love you! Now, off to walk around downtown Sonoma. Stay tuned...

I grew up near there! Santa Rosa, to be precise. :)
