This year. my birthday, November 20, fell only two days before Thanksgiving, so it would be celebrated while on the West Coast.
Sarah and I booked a trip to Napa to give Kylie some space and us a visit with good friend Suellen.
We met her in the town of Napa on Monday night for a walking tour of the cute town and dinner.
Then for my birthday, Suellen offered to take a scooter ride around Napa Valley for a wine tasting and lunch.
We rode her Vespa 250 GTS while she led on an old Vespa ET4.
The weather was almost perfect, if a little cool.
We stopped for a wine tasting and purchase at V Sattui Winery, then lunch in St. Helena.
The 30 mile ride back to Napa was the highlight as the sun was low and the roads perfect.
What a great way to celebrate a birthday!

Sarah and the scooters in front of The French Laundry, one of the finest
restaurants in the world. No, we didn't dine there.
Suellen's wine purchase strapped to the back of her ET4.
We parked in front of this wonderful Victorian building in St. Helena.
