Perfect Saturday

Kitty and I spent yesterday in downtown Napa, and to our disappointment we realized we hadn't brought the camera. To speak of how lovely it was will not do justice, it was the perfect Saturday. We drove around the square three times and couldn't find parking, we parked a couple of blocks away and walked and didn't mind. It was a beautiful sunny day, the architecture, the colors and the charm kept us company as we strolled in and out of the store fronts. We had lunch at Piccolino's. It was an amazing experience. Our handsome waiter served us with such grace, we wanted to bring him home with us. It didn't hurt that he could enunciate (perfectly) all of the items on the menu. I ordered a glass of sparkling wine along with Caprese Insalata. (Tomato Slices Topped with Fresh Mozzarella and Basil. Drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and 17 Year Old Balsamic Vinegar. ) Along with Capellini Al Pomodoro. (Angel Hair Pasta Tossed with Chopped Tomatoes, Basil, Garlic and Extra Virgin Olive Oil) It served all of my senses. It was the perfect day.
