    Arrived just after 6 pm, temperature was 62*F with a light breeze and very low humidity. Perfect weather for sampling 20 or so wines!

    Now I know why the blackout curtains are so thick. The sun is really intense in the morning. Best image I can post with limited resources (I dislike my camera on my phone).

    A shame you couldn't get a room with a decent view.

    I just ventured out to get something from my car and I don't think the weather could be better for this festival. Nice breeze, 66. Trying to figure out if I can wear my sweatshirt and hide my fat without overheating...

    I'm actually putting away money now for next year. Health problems were the big problem this year with C. Hope everybody had fun

    It was a beautiful day. Well worth the money. I would caution buying the wine event tickets from the resort, I'd use Etix. They included both days tickets in my "package" when I only requested one day. I had to leave a voice message on Friday from my room (no response) and was "allowed" to write a note on my envelope to the event coordinator. No idea if I'll get reimbursed the $90 for Sunday's tickets at this point.

    Would have been better if my wife hadn't severely sprained her ankle while getting in line for the event (stepped in a pot hole), but we made the best of things and like I said the weather was fantastic this year. Found a new winery close to home that sourced Pinot Noir grapes from B.C., a Cab Sauv from Paso Robles that were very well made. Will have to make a trip in the next few weeks to get a few bottles (I hate walking around with bottles at the festival, or waiting in line when I have them put away till the end of the day).
