Trip Report Santa Cruz to San Diego: the slow way

Jump to last reply

My husband, 9 y.o. daughter and I are taking almost two weeks to drive down to San Diego and back, visiting friends and family along the way. I hopefully won't have much to say about hotels since we plan to stay with friends. This leaves more money for other excursions however.

First stop: Paso Robles.
We arrived in town just in time for two events. The first was the Lavender Festival which was in the city's main park. After a serving of lavender sorbet and purchasing a clever bow and quiver set made mostly of PVC pipes for my daughter, we headed out towards Templeton. Not before seeing a guy dressed as batman on top of the movie theater across the street. Random. Ok. Off to Olea Farm.

Olea had a number of different vendors at their place on Saturday. There was another olive oil farm, grass fed beef ranchers serving very yummy sliders, salsa tasting, two wineries (Calcarious and ...shoot. Rooster?) But the Olea olive oil was the star of the show. We bought a big bottle of the Crescendo. They have a nice little store there and the farm is open on the weekends although I doubt it's usually the party it was on this Saturday.
