The last day of our California visit was spent in Danville, a beautiful little town which is part of the Tri-Valley area. We spent time at the Blackhawk Museum, walking through a wonderful collection of classic automobiles. Two floors of cars from Rolls Royce to Alfa Romero, and everything in between. Although I would never consider myself a car buff, I must admit I really enjoyed our visit. Such an amazing collection of cars that are truly works of art.
We learned that the phrase “It’s a Doozy!” came via the classically beautiful Dusenberg. It really is a doozy!
The beautiful museum is available for parties and catered events. The elegance of the automobiles and the dramatic setting lends itself well to the many weddings, meetings and social events held there every year.
After the museum visit we wandered through downtown Danville. The restaurant Bridges is the setting for the final climatic scene in the 1993 Robin Williams movie Mrs. Doubtfire. We enjoyed a delicious dinner there last time we were there and had fun spotting the seating areas from the movie.
That’s it! Back home to Oregon, a little drizzly and much cooler. Northern California remains a favorite spot to visit, not just because our daughter lives there now, but how nice of her to land in a place I love to vacation.
