What an experience. Buddy Guy is one of the greatest guitar players ever and he's a great performer at 74. If you love the blues, you have to love Buddy Guy. And B.B. King turned 86, still playing that incredible guitar, voice still strong, still connecting with his adoring audience. Also really liked Jackie Greene, a newer talent, new to me anyhow. Seemed like a huge turnout so I hope this event is back on solid financial ground.

Drove out to Sanctuaire to see the new stonework around the swimming pool and was just blown away by how beautiful this place is. October is gorgeous up there and I wish I could just sit up there for a month. This is the most peaceful place I know. Off-season rates apply in October even though so far it remains plenty warm enough to swim and we're hoping that extends into October. If you haven't seen Sanctuaire, take a look: http://www.rrgetaways.com/sanctuaire_1.htm.

Being in Velouria is like being in a treehouse, forested hillside all over, yet only a few minutes drive to downtown Guerneville. Love the mid-century furnishings and the solarium dining area that makes you feel like you're eating outside when you're cozily indoors. This is our newest listing and I think people looking for something a little bit different will love it, as long as all the stairs are not a problem. You ramble down the hill to the satellite bedroom, a little further to the lounging deck (what a great spot for relaxing in a patch of sun in the forest) and another few steps down to the large hot tub on its own deck. Lots of places to just be. Check it out at http://www.rrgetaways.com/velouria_1.htm. It booked immediately for this weekend, but otherwise it's pretty much available.

So much fun last night. The Mighty Chiplings, a bluegrass band, opened for the Best Intentions, a Motown band who resurrected the best songs, renditions, and moves of that era. We all knew all the words and the dance floor under the redwood trees was packed. This is the only event permitted in the 1933 amphitheater, located in a redwood grove in Armstrong Woods. Standing ovation and rockin' encore ended a fantastic show. And what fun to walk back to the shuttle using flashlights---it's dark in them there woods!
