    I really love all your photos as usual, but I think the first one of the flowers and the bridge as well as the vieyard are my favorites!

    Looks like a perfect summer retreat.

    Healdsburg is going to be our next wine country destination. Once again, I loved your photos. I look forward to seeing them every Monday!

    We’ve visited Healdsburg – absolutely charming! Stayed at Madrona Manor. Mind you, we were more into the wines – so missed the chocolates unfortunately :-).

    Thank you for the trip to Healdsburg! I have not been there in a few years, but I almost feel like I am there – sipping wine and shopping. Thanks for this!

    Healdsburg looks like a beautiful place to visit, browse through and spend the day. Such a pretty little town!

    It looks like an interesting mix of elegance, art, food and wine. What’s not to like? 🙂

    Oh my, I’d need days to wander through this charming little town, including the beautiful vineyards. Love your capture of the manhole… indeed tres cool 🙂

    Now that’s the kind of small town atmosphere that gives a sense of peace and tranquility. Even the fish on the manhole cover looks happy.

    You had me at to die for chocolates – but agreed that Healdsburg area is a lovely area to explore, especially if you have time to just linger through the small towns, the shops, restaurants and the wineries.

    Healdsburg looks like a beautiful spot to visit ( any town with an artisanal chocolatier gets my vote!) and it’s great to see you didn’t miss out on capturing a mural for your collection!

    Very cute town, nice addition to a road trip.

    Healdsburg looks like a great little town- the Scharfenberger sign caught my eye. I’ve been a big fan for years- discovered them when they first went national.

    As a road trip blogger, I love anything to do with Main Street America, and your lovely photo essay on Healdsburg, CA, hits the spot.

  16. Nancie July 7, 2014 at 12:37 am #

    Looks like a nice place to visit.

    Love the man hole cover – that really is tres cool!

  18. Dale July 6, 2014 at 9:10 pm #

    Loving those manhole covers 🙂 Though it makes me a little sad to think that people are dumping all sorts of things and need to be told not too. It just makes sense NOT to pollute, right?

  19. muzachan July 6, 2014 at 8:42 pm #

    Beautiful manhole cover 🙂

  20. Rajlakshmi July 6, 2014 at 7:44 pm #

    the wine country looks fabulous. I loved the street views too.

  21. jesh StG July 6, 2014 at 5:08 pm #

    Shop till I drop would probably be what I would do here, unless there’s a well stocked book store:) Thanks for passing on the sites!

  22. Marisol@TravelingSolemates July 6, 2014 at 3:58 pm #

    Organic modern and hip – my kind of place indeed. And that Dry Creek Valley is a big plus. Inviting photos as usual.

  23. Corinne July 6, 2014 at 11:36 am #

    What a gorgeous little place. I would love to window shop here!
