It’s always nice to get away for the weekend. Here are a few photos from a recent, rainy jaunt to San Luis Obispo and the surrounding area. We love to get up to that region at least once a year and usually end up in Santa Maria or the Santa Ynez Valley. This time we aimed for SLO, and despite choosing to go on the only rainy weekend in a year, we had no regrets! In addition to trying out a few new vineyards, we were able to catch the tail end of the monarch butterfly migration in Pismo Beach and also finally made our way up to the incredible Hearst Castle. On the last day, the rain subsided and we finished the trip with a scenic hike on a large morro overlooking the entire valley. Can’t wait to go back.
