My parents live in St Helena in the Napa Valley. It is one of the most beautiful places, and is definitely my happy place. They have been lucky to be part of a circle of friends that are warm, supportive, and fun to be around. Most of the ladies in the group meet every weekday morning to walk. Then they have coffee, and maybe even celebrate a birthday here and there. They have been walking together for many years -- I believe I heard somewhere in the 30 years neighborhood. For this occasion five of the fifteen "walkers" and one of the husbands were celebrating their 80th birthdays. One walker was away on a trip, but all the others were at the party in a gorgeous setting on top of Howell Mountain in St Helena.
