I have never been to a lobster feast…or a clam bake. So, we were quite excited when we saw The Deloach Vineyards members only Lobster Feast. The date was within a week of our 34th Anniversary, so we made reservations, which lead to this whole, sweet Napa and Sonoma mini vacation.

Well, here we are with another couple of Virtual Holiday Home Tours. I am very excited to showcase these beautiful homes with their gorgeous decorations. Let’s get right to it.
