I am in California! Boyfriend and I are spending Thanksgiving visiting in San Luis Obispo, CA. We left DC bright and early yesterday (7am flight), had a bumpy ride into Phoenix, before getting on a small plane that took us to SLO. The weather is GORGEOUS!! I am soaking up the sun and getting ready to go to some wineries! Will try to put up some photos later.
Edited: OK, I am back and here are some photos! It is beautiful out here, but still very dry. The colors are definitely different from what I am used to. We went to two wineries, Edna Valley and Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards. We did a tasting at Kelsey and it was good! We left with a bottle of Chardonnay and a bottle of Apple Chardonnay - half apple juice, half wine! Fun.
I adore See Canyon - it is a beautiful canyon where it always seems to be nice and warm. Unfortunately my favorite apple place, See Canyon Fruit Ranch, was closed. After the canyon we went to Avila Beach where we had lunch. There were lots of people bustling around on the beach and the little main street.
I am very thankful to be spending this little vacation in this gorgeous spot, eating delicious food and soaking up the sun!
