LAURA - REMEMBER WHEN - WINE TASTING -

I would love to take a day sometime and do this again.  It was fun and I enjoyed this particularly winery the most.  Didn't we visit around four that day.  Missing in the pic is Mike who is taking the photos.

CAYUCOS - AND EXCUSE ME - IF I POSTED SOME BEFORE - DON'T FEEL LIKE LOOKING BACK

I don't think I have posted these but if so, here they are again.  So, Sis, you wanted to see my photos so here are a whole lot more.

Cayucos is a very quaint and one of my favorite small beach towns.  My my first stop off I ever made here was way back when my kids were young, elementary school area and we took my sister's daughter with us on a vacation up the coast.  Five kids crammed into an Oldsmobile - I don't even know how we did it.  I only remember there was always one in the front seat with us (they were bench not bucket seats at that time).    It wasn't until we would stop here with my sister on our later trips to the coast that I would recognize the place and remember we had been here in the early 80's.

MORE VACATION PHOTOS


This top photo is from a gift shop in Cambria - at the winery we visited.  There was a rack in front of it and the lighting was off so I fixed the contrast and I love the browns in it. 



This shopping area appealed to me, took a few shots of it.  I stopped in the gift shop for a few months looking for something for my niece - anything to do with cats and couldn't find anything although they have a lot of "stuff" in there for tourists.  It's just before you get to San Simeon State Beach.






Another little area near the beach.  Sebastians is a store we have stopped at before.  It's a nice area to hang out for a bit.




The hills behind the horses are part of the Hearst Castle property, which the castle is high up on the top.  I have a photo from far away somewhere and i have photos of inside when taking a tour about 30 years ago.  Not sure where they are.






Moonstone beach area is where a lot of the hotels are facing the ocean.  It's so pretty driving through there.
