Walk, Wag, Wine

It’s time for another Kinde Vineyard dog walk around the vineyards.  I’ve done this hike a few times, and it is one of my favorite dog walks.  The hike is led by Kunde wine grower  Jeff Kunde and his dog.  Be prepared to hike 4-5 miles through the hills and vineyards of the Kunde Winery.  The hike is strenuous, reaching altitudes of 1400 ft.

Every mile or so there is a place to stop and rest under an oak tree, and  to enjoy a Kunde varietal wine.  Starting with cool whites, moving to reds and blends.  Enjoy seeing the 100-year-old vines and beautiful views of the Valley of the Moon all while letting Fido run leash free through the vineyards.

The hike sells out, so make your reservation soon.  A portion of the hike benefits the Sonoma County Humane Society.

  • What: Kunde Vineyard Dog Hike
  • Where: Kunde Vineyard 9825 Sonoma Hwy, Kenwood
  • When: Saturday Sept 30 9am
  • Cost: $75

5 things your roof is asking you to do now

We are lucky in California that our weather consistently provides virtually NO rain July, Aug or Sept. Well, October is not that far away so this is a great time to check your roof for these 5 potential problems.

1) Vegetation should not be touching your roof.

What does this look like? Tree limbs dangling over your roof with branches touching the roof, or bushes that have grown so tall they are touching your roof line.

Trees and bushes

Trees limbs and tall hedges lay on, and touch the roof of this house

What’s the problem? When the wind blows, that vegetation rubs your roof, accelerating the wear and tear on it. The sun and the wind are hard enough on a roof, don’t let vegetation decrease the life of your roof. Vegetation can trap moisture against your roof causing moss, fungus, and algae to grow on and under your shingles. Additionally, vegetation can act as an highway way for bugs and rodents such as roof rats to access your home.

Remedy: Cut your hedges back so they are not touching your home anywhere. Hire an arborist to cut tree limbs back so they are not touching your roof.

2) Debris on the roof.

What’s it look like? Dry leaves and vegetation on the roof, or collecting behind a chimney usually below a tree or some other vegetation that’s growing above the roof line.

Debri in valley.JPG

Debris in the valley of the roof traps moisture and will eventually clog the rain gutters

leaf-buldup

Debris built up behind the chimney traps moisture causing rust and dry rot

What’s the problem? Debris on the roof seems innocent enough right? The wind and rain will wash it away. Well, the rain might wash it into your rain gutters where it may then become trapped and clog your gutters. Trapped debris breaks down over time and reduces the amount of rain water your gutters can contain before overflowing. While on the roof, the leaves are trapping moisture, and blocking the wind and the sun from keeping your shingles, fascia board, and trim dry.

Remedy: Clean your roof off before dry leaves get a chance to flow into your gutters. Use a broom, or leaf blower, or hire a professional to get on your roof and clean behind the chimney and other hard to reach places.

3) Algae and moss

What’s it look like? Moss looks like fuzz and algae can look like various colors of discoloration.

roof shingles with moss.jpg

Moss on composite shingles

Roof-Top-Moss-Removal-1000x5781-1

Algae on wood shingles

What’s the problem? Moss traps moisture which is never good. Severe moss can cause the shingles to lift compromising the shingles water resistance.

Remedy: Use a stiff broom to brush the growth away, and analyze why the moss is growing there. Chances are that there is something causing the moss to grow such as excessive shade from nearby vegetation.

4) Damaged flashing on the roof

What’s it looks like? Flashing that has slipped, been damaged or brittle and cracked. Caulking that is cracked or missing, paint that is peeling or chipping.

squirrel-chewed-flashing-ct-4

Damaged chimney flashing

plumbing flashing on roof

Cracked plumbing flashing

What’s the problem? Flashing is about preventing water intrusion into the home. Sometimes flashing is damaged by work being done on the home, vegetation, animals or just old age. Flashing is designed to keep moisture from penetrating the roof where plumbing, chimneys, vents, or skylights breach the shingles. Having the flashing repaired is a lot cheaper than dealing with water damage later on.

Remedy:  Consult professional roofer for repair before wet weather arrives.

5) Damaged/leaking rain gutters

What does it look like? Rain gutters that are full of debris, cracked, rusted or otherwise show active signs of leaking or imminent signs of leaking.

Rain gutters in need of maintenance

Rain gutters need to be check for debris, cracks and leaks. Gutters that are painted won’t rust and will last longer

IMG_2190

Rain gutters that leak or overflow cause water to splash onto the siding which overtime causes dry rot and other wood related problems.

What’s the problem? Some people think rain gutters are simply there to allow you to walk under your eaves without getting wet. They actually are designed to carry water away from your home. When gutters over flow or leak, the water falls to the ground below which (most of the time) causes the rain water to splash back onto the siding of the home. eventually, causing dry rot and other wood related problems. If the gutters “overflow” it can cause dry rot and other wood related problems to the roof trim and fascia board behind the gutter. Rot on the trim can eventually spread to other parts of the roof and can become quite costly. It can all be avoided by maintaining your gutters.

Remedy:   Inspect your gutters.  Keep them free of debris and painted.  If they leak, it’s possible to patch a small spot, however it might just be time to have them replaced.

Agents are getting younger

DSCN1110The National Association of Realtors announced this month that, based on member profiles, Realtors are younger than ever. The average age of a Realtor decreased from 57 to 53 years old. That’s a big jump in 1 year. Realtors under 30 years old doubled last year to 5 % from 2% previously, and Realtors over 65 decreased to 16% from 25%. It seems more millennials are getting into the business. This could be favorable for young buyers who will enjoy using the technologies employed by these fresh professionals. The down side is that 1 in 5 Realtors now has less than 1 year in the profession.

5 Places to beat the heat in Sonoma County

It is going to be a hot one this weekend. Here are 5 places to beat the heat:

1) Lake Isanjo

I love Lake Isanjo because it is rarely crowded. Even on a hot weekend there maybe less than 20 people around this large lake. Why? Because it’s hard to get to! Parking is a good 2+ mile hike away. Yes, it’s hard to get to, but it’s worth it.

  • Park at Spring Lake and hike the Spring Creek Trail up to the Lake. It’s worth it.

  • Or park at Annadel State Park and hike Warren Richardson Trail 2.5 miles to the lake

2010-05-22 16.04.09

A picnic bench sits at the shore line of Lake Isanjo

  • Where: Annadel State Park but best access is from parking at Spring Lake Park 5585 Newanga Ave Santa Rosa
  • Fee: Parking $7 at Spring Lake
  • Dogs: No dogs in Annadel State Park
  • More Information: Annadel

2) Spring Lake Lagoon:

It’s much easier to get to but it can be crowded on a hot weekend. The good news is that most kids don’t care if it’s crowded. There is a great inflatable playground that kids love and the Otter cafe is a nice place to enjoy an adult beverage.

IMG_1562

Spring Lake Lagoon with inflatable water playground

  • Where: 393 Violetti Rd Santa Rosa
  • Fee: $7 parking
  • Dogs: not allowed on beach
  • More information: Spring Lake

3) Riverfront Park

This is a great place because it’s a 1-mile hike to the river so a lot of people won’t do it. The shoreline is covered by a canopy of trees, and it’s a nice cool place to spend the day. Bring food and drink because there is nowhere to buy food. From the parking lot, walk directly through the park on the service road past the percolation ponds till the road makes a sharp left turn. Instead of turning and staying on the road, go straight you’ll see a trail to the river.

Riverfront Park

  • Where: 7821 Eastside Rd Healdsburg
  • Fee:  $7 parking (Free with county park pass)
  • Dogs:  Yes on <6' leash
  • More information: Riverfront

4) Del Rio Woods Beach

Del Rio Woods Beach is a newer park along the Russian River. It is a parking lot only, and there is only room for about 20 cars so get there before it gets too hot or you won’t be able to park your car

  • Where: 2749 Rio Wood Road Healdsburg
  • Fee:  $7 parking (Free with county park pass)
  • Dogs: Yes < 6' leash
  • More information: Del Rio Woods

5 ) Doran Beach

Doran is a 2 mile stretch of beach with tons of parking although, on hot afternoons, park rangers might close the entrance if the park gets too full. On really hot days I recommend getting there before noon.

Rincon Valley’s Wine Country Polo

IMG_0303

Wine Country Polo

I wonder how many people know that they can watch polo free in Rincon Valley at the Wine Country Polo Club field? I went to my first game this last weekend and had an absolute blast!  Polo is a fast moving game with only 8 players (4 per side) on the field at a time.  To prevent exhaustion to the horses, each quarter is only 7:30 mins each.   There is 1 umpire on horseback.

There are plenty of places to watch the matches for free, or you may prefer to pay to have a more luxurious experience, as we did.  This particular event, photographed below, was a benefit for Wounded Veterans and was $180 per plate.  Lunch was delicious, and wine tasting  generous.

Generally, polo can be watched most weekends at the Wine County Polo fields beginning at 9:30 am through Oct 1st 2017.  Additional practice/play can be observed on Thursdays beginning at 3:30.

As the average home sales price continues to climb in Rincon Valley, this is a great time to sell.  Call me today, I’d love to come over and talk to you.

Additionally, for those of you who tried to sell during the summer but were unable to, fall is a much more desirable time to put your home on the market.

I love living in Rincon Valley!  I’ve lived here since 1995 and can’t imagine living in a better north bay community.  Call me today if you’re interested in buying a home in Rincon Valley, or if you’d like to list your Rincon Valley home for sale.

Hat Day at the Sonoma County Fair

This photo was taken of Gwen and me at the track on opening day. We attended a special “Hat Day” event which included lunch, grandstand seating, and a hat competition. The photograph was taken by WB Photography of Santa Rosa who always does an outstanding job capturing the fair’s excitement.  Click on the link to see more great picture of the fair and opening day: WB Photography
