One rainy Sunday afternoon in March we found ourselves driving to Napa to check out the newly renovated downtown/waterfront area. Another reason was to check out Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto's restaurant. It's now October and I still haven't saved enough to money to eat at Morimoto - well that's another story.
We found parking quickly. The area is almost abandoned. I guess people didn't like going out on a cold, rainy Sunday afternoon.
I immediately spotted Morimoto.
Suprise, surprise. Another celebrity chef has taken residence in the Napa downtown/waterfront area. I am waiting for the restaurant, this one's a kitchen supply store.
Wine bottle chandelier. So very Napa.
The water level at Napa River was very low in March.
We walked along the road and stumbled on one of the other restaurants I've been meaning to visit. It was close that day.
We walked some more, entered a Kohl's (dept store) when the rain got heavy, made a few purchases, then went our merry way back home.
Before we went home we stopped by to photograph this Napa Valley landmark - a statue of a man with a giant grape crusher.
A late post I know.
This is my entry for this week's OUR WORLD TUESDAY (#3).
