Quality Time in Sonoma...Departing Day

The 4th day was Saturday and my flight was departing from SFO in the evening. So, I could spend the final quality time in Sonoma until in the afternoon.

In the morning, we walked to SHED for breakfast.

Then, Kyle gave a tour of his restaurant construction site.

I could definitely see the big progress since I visited there last October. It's going to be a real special restaurant & inn...I just can't wait for its opening.

In the afternoon, I did some more shopping at SHED, because I love the shop so much.

Kyle drove me to Santa Rosa airport to pick up a shuttle to SFO. On our way there, we stopped by at Rochioli Vineyards and Winery for tasting. It was another gorgeous day in Sonoma and the wines was beautiful.

What a fun stay I had again in Sonoma. Thank you so much, Kyle, Katina, and the team!

So, this time, the only time I spent in San Francisco was the dinner event at Rintaro and couldn't get to visit any bookstore or other shops. But later, my friend Kyoko sent me this photo from Books Kinokuniya in San Francisco. My DONABE Cookbook was in the front showcase display!

Happy donabe life.
