Our room was a king room with a fire place (which I never could light). There was a complementary bottle of wine and complimentary breakfast the next morning. The room (sorry for the bad picture) was cozy and welcoming. The bay was also visable from our room so it made a great view.

Sunday morning we used our voucher and went across the street to the Tides Wharf restaurant. We got a free breakfast, not a continental breakfast though that was on the menu but a full breakfast and they gave you a lot of food! I tried the biscuits and gravy which was OK but I've had better. It was two large biscuits which in themselves were good with gravy which was OK plus two slices of bacon. Charlie had the Tides breakfast which was eggs, bacon, hash browns and two slices of toast. The bonus was a great view of the bay, watching the fishing boats going out.
After breakfast we decided to drive down Highway 1. Saw lots of little towns I'd never heard of and some lovely views but Highway 1 is very winding and it was getting a little old. We stopped in Sea Ranch to get out and stretch our legs and get a snack. We were tired of the winding road and wanted to find a cross over to head back towards Sacramento. The way it looked we would have to go all the way to Fort Bragg before we would find a freeway. We finally came to a spot that we could cross over and headed into Boonville. A cute little town. We ended up at an Indian Casino in the Napa area and stopped there for a while. I did OK, but then ended up putting it back. By then it was around 4:30 and we were wondering what to do for dinner. We were on Highway 28 which leads right through wine country, Calistoga, St. Helena, and my beloved Yountville. We hadn't been to Mustard Grill in a long time so we stopped there in hopes of getting a table. The parking lot was packed but after about a 15 minute wait and a glass of wine we were seated. Dinner was wonderful. I got pictures of the appetizer and desert but dug into my dinner and totally forgot to take a picture.
