THE ULTIMATE BODEGA AT BODEGA BAY
Bodega Bay needs to know the introduction, made famous by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock for “The Birds” movie. But more specifically is the town of Jenner, not officially part of the larger Bodega Bay area, but a jewel hamlet shadowed by it. Babito and I stumble into this town for much-needed gas on our way to the central part of Bodega Bay.
WHERE COWBOYS CLASH WITH HIPPIES
As with many beach towns, each has its own story and Cayucos is not short of its own. It’s not as significant in history as some other Central Coast counterparts, but significant enough to be well respected and a sought after resort destination town.
WHERE COWBOY COUNTRY MEETS DISTINGUISHED WINE REGION
El Paso de Robles, or “Pass of the Oaks,” is located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, in San Luis Obispo County. Surrounded by scenic rolling hills and California’s premier wine regions, Paso Robles is only 27 miles from dazzling beaches.
A BITE OF BRITTANY
If you want to literally taste WOW on your tongue, choose the best restaurant in Downtown Paso Robles. We have been coming to the downtown for years and we’ve always wanted to dine at BL Brasserie (formerly Bistro Laurent). But for one reason or the other, we couldn’t.
At first, we were in our 20s and we couldn’t afford it. Secondly and most importantly, the restaurant was always booked, and thirdly, it is in a tiny hamlet where it was difficult to find accommodation after 9 pm. I always wanted to know the man behind this restaurant that has survived a quarter of a century.
HOSPITALITY AT ITS FINEST
Anita Kothari and Varinder Sahi, an affectionate couple are producing sumptuous Rhone blends from their organically estate grown vineyards in Paso Robles. Anita worked hospitality in New York and Varinder an engineer merged their ingenuity and the characteristics of the Central Coast to make accomplished wines. The objective of their future is the desire to continue improving while maintaining control of the process.
Artistry into wine
Marisa and Kris Beverly, Santa Ynez residents, whose nails are soiled with Santa Maria terroir, touch their grapes through vinification and express each individual wine with its own personal design. Not confined to experiment with other grapes not commonly planted in the area, such as the Italian varietal Teroldego, while some wines are artistically blended with Syrah. These wines are independently sophisticated, floral fruit, savory spices, bright acid, lavish tannins while giving way to rustic qualities, such as earth and restrained oak.

CAMBRIA: NOTHING WELSH ABOUT THIS TOWN.
Cambria is a seaside village in San Luis Obispo County, California, United States midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles along California State Route 1. The name Cambria is Latin for Wales. It was simply chosen in 1869 by a prospector, who felt it reminded him of Cambria County, Pennsylvania.
THE CENTRAL COAST’S RECREATION
Pismo Beach is a city located in San Luis Obispo County on California’s Central Coast. Three hours from Los Angeles or San Francisco, it’s an ocean adventure to escape the city or locals from the San Joaquin Valley escaping the heat. The “Five Cities” area is actually only three, Grover Beach, Arroyo Grande, and Oceano Beach. Best known for its 8.5 miles of beaches, and linked trails from city to city, for biking, hiking, and endless water sport activities.
