Hello! I spent the day in Los Olivos with my friend Lisa. But, before I went I did a 10-ish mile run. I’m not sure how much because my Garmin stopped at mile 2. I reset it when I turned around, but I’m not sure the official distance.
On the way to meet Lisa I stopped to get scones. Pumpkin Pecan for me. This was a lot better than the WF pumpkin scone I got yesterday. A LOT BETTER.
I crumbled it over my yogurt bowl, which I took to go
Then, Lisa and I were headed north!
Los Olivos is a small city inland of Santa Barbara in the San Ynez mountains. It’s about two hours north of LA (three hours from Orange County).
It felt so good to be back driving up the California coast. I’m home.
Welcome to Los Olivos! It is Santa Barbara Wine Country
Hmmmm. That name is super similar to “Olivas” my last name. I wonder if my ancestors were wine makers. Maybe wine drinkers? That’s where I get it from!
Our first stop was the highlight of the day…
but not because of the wine. It was the highlight of the day because you can buy a flight of cup cakes with your wine tasting.
As we were walking out we asked one of the owners to take a picture of us. A glass of wine and a silly mood means it was a production.
This is one of the owners. I didn’t catch his name But he swears this is his Halloween costume. I’m not sure.
Then, we met Henry. He greeted us at the door of stop #2. In case you’re wondering, I lost count after #2.
Henry says, “Drink up bitches!”
Per usual, they gave us a piece of chocolate with the port tasting. I bought it.
After another tasting or so we needed lunch.
Tuna salad is my favorite. It just is.
The day started off drizzly, but turned extra gorgeous to make up for the gloomy morning.
Today was a good day.
