Our passions outside of the workplace are important for everyone’s sanity. I find knitting therapeutic and gardening full of satisfaction, but one of my favorite and social passions is touring, specifically my hometown of Healdsburg: Anne’s Healdsburg Walking Tour.  There is no need to explain why I am so proud of my hometown.  The sleepy town was voted #2 Best Small Towns in the Smithsonian, has been voted #1 Wine Destination by TripAdvisor, and has had many write-ups on the new and interesting happenings.  We are well-known for our Tuesday night concert series and we have 5 restaurants that made Michael Bauers top 100 list (the only 5 of which were outside of the Bay Area). This past weekend I had two friends visiting from San Francisco and this was the walking tour we went on:
