I know. An odd title for a blog post.
I had hoped that we had left the triple digit heat home in LA, but I was wrong! Santa Margarita Ranch – where were yesterday was hot! Hot. Dry. Dusty. But hey- it’s the west. It is supposed to be hot, dry and dusty. Every John Wayne movie I have seen (well, at least the western ones) have been hot, dry and dusty.
What made this whole day tolerable was:
I’m with DH. Like I wrote in a previous post – we only see each other on weekends because of our jobs. So for us spending more than 48 hours together is a real treat.
You can’t beat the beauty that is California’s Central Coast. Yea sure, Southern California has its charms (I know I live there), but Central California is a whole ‘nother place.
At Sunset Savior there’s lots to see, to eat and to drink. The morning line up before the event begins:
Got to see a wine maker take the top of a sparkling wine bottle with a saber:
Note to self: Got to try this one at home! Just as soon as I buy a saber. I wonder, do they sell those at BevMo?
This, of course, was after some wine tasting:
The wine tasting seminar was very interesting and I sketched all the wine experts:
We also strolled through the Sunset garden and met a few chickens:
Took lots of snaps for some future garden ideas. This one is my favorite:
Went to Paseo Robles for an event. Interesting location and the best part was watching the balloons get set up; unfortunately, they never left the ground. (Not sure why?).
Now another full day at Santa Margarita Ranch and triple digit heat is expected – Oh! Yea!
