The Road to Hell…
…as they say, is paved with good intentions.
As my Paso Robles vacation wound down, I rambled on about the importance of getting things done. Which I didn’t. At least, not as much as I had intended. The road to hell paving material, you know.
The planning phase of my trip would have made you proud. I knew that because my laptop had more or less gone to Apple heaven that I wouldn’t be doing too much posting on the iPad. That being said, I was going to go to at least four to five wineries/olive oil producers each day, take lots of pictures, and document everything carefully and thoroughly. Well, two out of three ain’t bad.
I did take lots of pictures. Lots. Some of them, frankly, are stunning. I also took careful notes, and just need to format them in order to post. But as far as visiting everyone – well, that didn’t quite happen. It seemed that the battle between my mind, my heart, and my body was won by my body. It was tired and took everyone else with it.
Rip van Winkle had nothing on me.
I know things would have been different if the Wineaux Guy had been able to stay longer than four days. While I knew he couldn’t stay the entire ten days, we had been hoping for at least six. Then his business and the car (“why is that light on?!?!??”) meant that he had to leave early. So I slept.
On one day I made it to four wineries. One.
To those wineries that I contacted with the intention of visiting – so sorry that I couldn’t make it! I knew you’d understand! The interviews and bonding time will happen soon.
I actually vacationed, which is something I hadn’t done in decades. Sleeping in late, lounging around, sitting out on my deck taking in the morning sun, visiting wineries at leisure, and sightseeing. Wow.
However, even though I did vacation in the full sense of the word, I reveled in the loveliness of the Central Coast landscape, scenery, architecture, and people.
Look for the slideshows, videos, and pictures in the upcoming posts. I’m so proud of many of them and am very happy to share to my (between naps) adventures.
