The warm days are going away, and along with them, some of the North Bay's favorite pastimes. But you can still squeeze out some last drops of Indian-summer fun with a canoe trip or dip in the pool.
What are you doing today? If you awake to sun, consider heading down to <b>Morton's Warm Springs</b> for one last watery hurrah.
This is the last weekend to dive into the mineral pools at the Sonoma Valley's old-timey summer spot. Pack a picnic and and say farewell to summer. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 1651 Warm Springs Road, Glen Ellen. Information: 833-5511, www.mortonswarmsprings.com.
<b>Francis Ford Coppola Winery</b> stretches the swim season through October, so if you love lounging by a pool with some of the glamor of Hollywood, you still have a few weeks to do so.
Coppola created the 3,600 square feet of connected pools with kids in mind, so make it a family day trip. Rent your own Euro-style cabine for the day equipped with a shower, four lounge chairs and wine-tasting passes ($125 for up to four people). Otherwise, admission is $20, $10 for kids under 13 and seniors 65 and up. Open only on weekends. Reservations are urged. 300 Via Archimedes, Geyserville.

There's still time for a canoe or kayak trip down the Russian River before concession boats get dry-docked for the winter.
