We were looking forward to our day, touring Paso Robles Wineries.
After stopping off at the tourist information center for a map of the area, they advised us to take Vineyard Drive and Peach Canyon Road, as this offered a scenic drive around the beautiful countryside with plenty of wineries to visit. We had read about the different wineries before arriving and decided to head to DAOU Vineyards as the pictures of this winery were gorgeous. This place did not disappoint. It is one of the prettiest wineries I have ever been to.
There was plenty of outside seating to enjoy a bottle of wine and this view.
We did not realize that this part of California was known for dry red wines. We like Moscato, and Daou Winery did not offer this wine. We were sad to leave this gorgeous place and their stunning views across the valley. There were more wineries to visit, and evidentially we came across Opolo Winery, which had Mascato. We purchased a couple of bottles to take with us.
After our successful day visiting the Paso Robles wineries, we got back in the car and drove towards the coast. On the way we stopped off at this cute roadside store before arriving at our next destination, Morro Rock.
When we finally reached Morro Bay we were getting hungry, as we had not eaten since breakfast. We decided to have a late lunch at Hofbrau Restaurant. We sat outside on the restaurant’s deck and was able to enjoy the view of Morro Rock.
After lunch we started walking around the small town, but in the distance we could hear this noise. As we drew nearer to the sound we realized it was a group of seal’s creating all this noise. Most were lazily lying over the rocks taking a nap.
After taking some pictures, it was on to our next destination, the Nitt Witt house in Cambria. Art Beal created this house up on the hill and called it the Nitt Witt house. He worked as a garbage collector for the town of Cambria and made use of what people were throwing away to build his house. It’s very unique and worth a drive by if you are in the area. They offer tours of the house, but when we arrived it was closed.
It had been a long day, and we were ready to unwind and enjoy our bottle of wine and watch the sunset. We headed to Sand Peebles Inn in Cambria, where we would be spending the night.
