It's Worth a Little Traffic

It took us two and a half hours to drive the fifty miles to Chef P.'s house in Napa last Saturday morning. Since two-thirds of that drive was at 70 mph on the wide-open freeway, it kind of defies logic that the rest of the trip, mostly on Route 29 between Vallejo and Napa, could have been that clogged with traffic.

But we were there. It happened. The reason appears to be the traffic lights they do not sync up for drivers on that highway. Twenty cars go through a green light and then the endlessly long red makes hundreds more wait, stretched out for miles along the two-lane road.

(This will not be news to Blogmaid or anyone else who ever has to try to get through that awful light in Half Moon Bay on a weekend.)

Which is to say, Napa and Sonoma counties are beautiful places where TGP and Ducknik could happily spend 'way more time than they do. But living there, if you want to come back and forth to the city?

But geez, it's nice at Pickle's. Reading TIAPOS stories and eating great food out on her back patio is a really cool way to be artists. Can't imagine how it could get any better.  Dexter thinks so too.

Thanks for these photos PJ.
