Pismo Beach & Wine Tasting Weekend

Ok, this has absolutely nothing to do with anything RV related, but I thought I would post it anyway. My wife and I took a long weekend on the central California coast, staying in Pismo Beach and wine tasting in the Paso Robles, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez and Lompoc areas. We had an awesome time, had some great meals, and drank a lot of really good wine (another passion of mine). I thought I would post a few pics from our trip, but if you want to see more and larger pictures, go here.

OK, party's over, I need to get back into the shop and get my butt back in gear!

The view from our hotel room window... nice huh?

A beautiful California sunset.

Melville's vineyards just East of Lompoc, CA. Great pinot noirs from this area (Santa Rita Hills AVA), if you're into those sort of things.

Surfer girl catching the last few waves of the day.

Nice view from the Pismo Beach pier. From the pier we could watch otters and porpoises feeding.

The lights of downtown Pismo Beach.

About 50 miles up the coast on Highway 1 is San Simeon, California.

The cliffs of the central California coast.

Just south of Big Sur, CA on highway 1. Nice view! It's hard to beleive this is only 2 hours from home.
