T Stands for Valentine's weekend
Hello gentle bloggers and welcome to the Tuesday madness called T stands for Tuesday ,one of the many names, that is put on by Elizabeth, the Altered Book Lover.
Since Saturday was Valentine's Day DH and I decided to go pick up the spring wine shipment from the winery. It was a super gorgeous day and very warm for the coastal area.
This winery is the one that sits on top of a small mountain, and the view is wonderful. You can see some that are sipping their sample out here on the wine barrel chairs that are provided for just that.
It was into the afternoon before we made it to the winery, so we didn't tarry around. We did sample all the wines that are in the wine club case we were picking up. They also pair all their wine sample with a tasty hors d'oeuvres, that are made right there in their kitchen by local chefs.
We came off the mountain and went to an antique store on the main street. It was quite large and had some rather interesting things in it.
I thought a picture of these cups and saucers would be appropriate, since it was Valentine's day. They had many unusual shaped and painted pitcher, and I took a lot of photos of them, but I'll hold off until a later date to share them....that is how many they had!!
Back in a little tiny hallway, there were some shelves and as I walked by I noticed something........

Then we headed south to Pismo Beach, about 40 minutes south, thinking we would get some clam chowder then head for home. It was so BUSY in the Pismo area that it was like a big legal holiday. I don't think we saw that many people over the 4th of July weekend!!! Now this is, of course right along the beach and the weather there was just perfect beach weather. So much for clam chowder.......LOL
We did remember a wonderful pizza place, the kids introduced us to in July, a wondered how busy it would be. It is way OFF the beach area, but in an older part of town that is all specialty shops and can be wicked to find a parking place in. As we lucked out, we found a parking place right away and there was hardly anybody in the pizza parlor. Maybe because it was only 3:30PM????
I did take a lot of pictures at the Klondike Pizza Parlor, those will have to wait for an other time too, as this is getting rather lengthy.
So what's in your cuppa today??
