It's my birthday!
So, this past weekend I talked Ray into taking me to the Santa Barbara wine country for my birthday. We stayed in a city called Solvang. Anyone seen the movie Sideways? It was filmed there. I really didn't like the movie, but it was kind of cool to see where it was filmed. Plus, I'm kind of a wine snob.
Anywho, it took us 4 1/2 hours to drive up there from Laguna. The pic of Ray is him NOT pleased with me after the drive up!! LOL
We stayed at the Wine Vally Inn - a B&B right in the center of town. Saturday morning, I allowed Ray to head over to Chumash, the only Indian casino in the area, for a quick tourney, while I did some shopping and a wine tasting. Then, we headed over to a city call Los Olivos. It has more wineries, and we had lunch and caught the Ohio State game - I mean the Ass whompin! It was a glorious day: wine tasing and ass whomping. I love it.
Later, we headed back to Solvang for some more wine tasting, touring the city, and dinner. We went to this quaint little place to eat, where they had a lounge with a singer. He was singing Frank Sinatra and such...Ray was Lovin it!! Sunday, we slept in and then left to drive back home. Ask Ray about the gas station incident and how many times he used the F-word!! too funny!
