Sonora, California, in the Gold Country. The girls and I made several trips here. We had a favorite bed and breakfast at the corner of Gold and Shepherd Streets (now a private residence). We would shop at the used book store and maybe also buy a needlework kit to work on and then just lay around and relax. We would chow down at the Diamondback Grill at least one night. Sometimes on the way back, we would drive through Yosemite. Last time, I stayed at the Gunn House Hotel, built in 1850.
