3:46 pm
i'm 16 hours ahead of you guys. it was my first time inside the olympic stadium and that's the stadium where they have the opening ceremony and the closing ceremony as well as track and field and some soccer events. so i figured i didn't get a chance to go inside the olympic stadium at all. when i was in rio have to pop in and just watch an event even just for a few minutes. and when we were there, the women's pole vault to the gold medal or a gust of the medal round, i should say, of the pole vault was taking place. we saw some of that. we saw men's decathlon and we saw a few relays the women's 4 by 400 round one and round 2 heat one and he too. so that was pretty neat to see because when i think a limb picks. i think track and field. most people think track and field swimming and or gymnastics. for me it begins with track and field. so very, very cool to be inside that stadium. just an eerie feeling though, sanaa's that nobody was there. it should have been a packed stadium. 50, 60,000 people only a couple 100 people in there, very strange strange for sure part of the track and field was your favorite.

3:48 pm
she's 35 years old. so she's been a terrific story going back even before the track and field trials in eugene almost 2 months or so ago allyson felix may or may not win, but she's already a winner in olympic history. so i'm looking for the 400 meter finals tonight. we'll be looking forward to that as well. and thank you so much for that. report. i hope you enjoy the sunny weather out there today. >> and in today's destination, california, saint is in the heart of wine country and one of the vineyards has been around for nearly a 150 years. melanie townsend takes us there in this week's destination, california. >> it's amazing to think of in your built in the 19th century could still be in operation today. but after 145 years, they're injured. vineyards continues to be one of the leading winemakers in napa valley and it all started with a vision of 2 german brothers,
