I just realized that my only rule is that I must take a photo every day. That doesn't preclude multiple postings for a single day. My visit to the TWiT Cottage is certainly worthy of an extra post.
If you're a geek, you've no doubt heard of Leo Laporte and his Internet show called This Week in Tech. He broadcasts it from a house in Petaluma, CA aptly named the TWiT Cottage. Out of everything we did on this trip, this was my one must-do.
We were actually there after hours and on a day they are normally closed. I was perfectly happy with just seeing the place and taking a photo of the exterior. Luckily for us, Dane Golden was working inside and invited us in. I told him we had a dog with us. His response? "We like dogs!"
I've met Leo a couple times before, so it wasn't a big deal he wasn't there. In fact, it allowed me more time to check out the studio. Dane had me sit on Leo's ball and he gave me a rundown of all the technology. On our way out, he gave us little TWiT souvenirs. I was blown away by his hospitality.
