A little road trip update for you, although I'm afraid iCloud is playing up and not showing my phone photos on the iPad, which makes uploading photos pretty difficult. We had a fab anniversary - we stayed at The Madonna Inn, San Luis Obispo. It's the most amazing themed hotel. Every room has a different theme and ours was The Captains Bridge. Last time we stayed,it was the Caveman. The whole stay is an experience,there is nothing like it anywhere- we ate our anniversary meal in the pink restaurant with a balloon and free cake :) whilst staying we got in some pool time and walking - I took two amazing photos of a humming bird, but you'll have to wait to see as they are on my camera!
From there we moved to Los Alamos, a one street western town and its brilliant! We are staying in the Pirate suite in a themed B&B and I wish the Cloud would work so I could share the photos!
We spent the day in Solvang, a Danish-American town complete with windmills...we ate pizza at Flatbread pizza across the street and had a wine tasting 2 doors away at Casa Dumetz... fabulous!!! I found Dumetz through reading the book 'Along the Way', a memoir by Martin Sheen and his son,actor Emiio Estevez. I was a real brat pack fan in the 80's , which prompted my reading of the book, which I think every father/son should read. Anyway, Emilio and fiancée Sonja are wine producers and Casa Dumetz is their vineyard and she runs it... We had a great tasting with her tonight, she is so lovely! We do some tastings at home, but I have to say that this the first time I've enjoyed every taste!
So tomorrow we are off exploring... It's so hot here and so dry, it looks like a tinderbox.
Here are a few photos from my phone;
