A favorite getaway activity for is sitting around a firepit with friends. I first gained a fondness for this in the bush of South Africa. However, this doesn't just happen in Africa, does it? At my friend's home in Guerneville, there's a wonderful firepit, perfect for relaxing with friends after a long day on the water. S'mores anyone?
There are lots of ducks living on the river. Many are quite tame. We were tossing them sunflower seeds all through the jazz festival. Quite a few were happy to take them directly from your hand. Very cool!
How about an inflatable raft with armrests, drink holder and a hat? Oh yes, and some smooth jazz played on stage, just 100 yards away, by George Benson, Al Jarreau, Brian Culbertson, Stanley Clarke and more? Yeah, life is FIIIIIINE.
There's really not a whole lot to do in Guerneville other than RELAX! Several restaurants and bars in town have live music and dancing. Really, this is a small tourist town, catering to Northern Californians.
