Napa County Landmarks 13th Annual Holiday CandleLight Tour

12.8.01
A Victorian Chocolate Delight.
Every year, mom and I try to do something different and unique for the holidays. Do the mom/daughter bonding thing and celebrate Christmas all in one.

This year, we went up to Napa to look at Victorian homes. I never knew that Napa was so, prosperous back in the day.

There are some beautiful old great grand mansions. There were 9 homes in all ranging from private homes, to B&Bís to law offices. Winding staircases, filigreed porches, gingerbread, wood floors, antique wallpaper. Some were decorated to evoke period grandeur, while others were done in post-modern chic. 

There were docents at each house who gave little talks about the history of the house and several houses had chocolate snacks.

As the evening progressed, the spot lights and the candles came out. Very cool.

Gaskells

12.22.01
Ah, Christmas Gaskells. Full of dancing swaying far too many beautifully dressed people.

As always, the Christmas Gaskells, was quite a scandalous crush. La.

During the breaks we sang carols, I love caroling and Gina and I were careful not to stand next to each other. Thus avoiding the sadness and pain that is violently off key singing (Our fate when we enter each others singing orbit.).
