Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions.Heart of Darkness Joseph Conrad
There are some good options up the Napa river as well, depending on what type/size of boat you have. As a matter of fact, if you're going to investigate Port Sonoma, you might as well check out the entire Petaluma river, depending on where you'll be working in Sonoma County.
