Hi. I am driving a circuitous route from SF to Sonoma town next Tuesday. I am leaving SF at around 10 or so (breakfast at Ella’s before crossing the bridge), driving up along the coastline, to the Russian River. Eventually, I will end up at El Dorado in Sonoma.
Question: assume you wanted to do some hiking in the Armstrong reserve. Where would you fit in Healdsburg and/or a couple "drive by" wine tastings? Before or after the park visit?
And, when would you do lunch? (I’m not sure what time I’ll get into the area, since I’m driving a scenic route.)
Also, would you go to dinner in this area (assuming we are too smelly from our walk :-) ) and drive late down to Sonoma?
Thanks for any ideas.
