trip to cambria

We went up to Cambria & Paso Robles over the weekend with friends Ryan & Nate. The central coast area has lots of great wineries, specializing in zinfandels, of which we liberally sampled. Hearst Castle is just up the road, and there was an organized bike ride which I joined on Saturday; 50 miles up and down highway 1. The weather was perfect for riding, but 100+ degrees in Paso Robles when we were at the wineries.

We stayed right on the coastal Moonstone drive in Cambria. The views from the hotel were great as were those from the beach boardwalk. The sunsets were amazing, all us tourists would be outside to check out the colors in the sky, typically with a glass of the local wine in hand. As you can see below I have mastered the self timer feature on our camera to get a nice shot of Sarah and I with the sunset in the background.

Nate had a new camera and was trying to get some real nice shots of the sunsets, venturing down on the rocks for the best view. They had to do battle with the other photographers on the rocks to get the best shots. It looked like the tide was coming in, we stayed on the boardwalk.

I put a few more photos of our trip on Flickr.
