My wife and I were talking about how nice it would be to enjoy a nice glass of Pinot Noir,
so we jetted off to one of California's wine regions, located just north of LA.
A bit extreme you say?
Well.....that's just how we roll!
( actually we found really cheap air fares on Travelzoo and have been planning this for months.)
Because of this trip, I have been absent for some time from my Blog world.
I do not drink and Blog!
As you can see below, we had a lot of work to do in a short period of time.
We spent 2 days enjoying the sights and sounds and tastes of this beautiful area. Solvang was the town we called home for that time.
If you're old enough to remember the TV show Daniel Boone, then you may remember the actor who played the part was Fess Parker. He played a mean Daniel Boone and it turns out he makes a nice Chardonnay too.
To detox from our 2 day wine tasting we headed south to Santa Barbara, where we stumbled upon this old mission. I love old stuff so it was quite a treat.
The next 2 days were spent near the beaches of Malibu, which will be in my next post.
