the wine train

We knew Wednesday was going to start early so we ordered breakfast the night before to be delivered to the room . . . I highly recommend this.

We headed out to catch the 8am ferry. We asked the doorman to hail us a cab, but instead he asked had the hotel town car drive us to the ferry terminal . . . I also recommend this. We arrived in plenty of time to purchase our tickets and get to the ferry gate.

The weather looked a little threatening, but since we would be inside for most of the day, we weren’t too worried.

The ferry ride to Vallejo was uneventful and when we arrived we were picked up by Steve of Platypus Tours. What a kick! He entertained us all the way to the train station in Napa.

After a wine tasting in the station, we boarded the train. We were seated in the dome car.

Dinner was amazing.
