Another Day at the Office

Last Sunday morning outside of Sacramento, at the airport in Lodi, CA, Kathleen caught this sky diver preparing for another tandem drop.

Apparently folks like to jump out of perfectly functional airplanes!

Lodi  is a city located in San Joaquin County, in the northern portion of California’s  Central Valley. 

Lodi is best known from the Creedence Clearwater Revival song “Lodi”, and also as a center of wine production (The “Zinfandel Capital of the World”), although its vintages have traditionally been less prestigious than those of  Sonoma  and  Napa counties. However, in recent years, the Lodi Appellation has become increasingly respected for its  Zinfandel wine and other eclectic varietals.  Nearby Woodbridge is the home of the well known winery by  Robert Mondavi. Mondavi grew up in Lodi, and Mondavi Winery is considered one of the most influential in the American wine industry.
