We shared some of our lunch over great conversation with the "Hostess with the Most-est", Raquel Hug, one of the dynamic duo behind these wonderful wines.
The wines that we tasted at Hug Cellars were all beautifully balanced, amazing "Food Wines" that were obviously crafted with love.
We cannot wait to visit again.
Check out their website, visit their tasting room, and hook up with them on Facebook.
Our Paso Trips always include a visit to Lone Madrone to sip some more amazing "food wines" and to pick up some more of their delicious Hard Cider.
One this day, the charming Art Kishiyama, of Olio Nuevo, was sampling his delicious artisan crafted extra virgin olive oils and balsamics.
I had to get a bottle of the "Premium Aged Balsamic of Modena"
Estate Blended in Paso Robles.
My salads are loving it!
Mister Andrew Calasanz, giving the grapes some love before we headed off to get some sleep.
Good Morning! Ready for the Ultra!
One last pic in the Spooner Cove parking lot, ready to head to the start.
Would one of my adventures be complete without one of these poses?
Since I only did the 8k (with all that elevation, if felt like the LA Marathon all over again), I had time to kill while Andrew finished his 25k. What better way to celebrate an early morning trail run then with some Lone Madrone Hard Cider with a yellow jacket chaser?
Poor little fella was loaded by the time I got him out of the glass.
The neatest thing about Ultras is that they have TREATS at the aid stations.
I had to take a picture of the "PUDDING" for my friend Gavril
It was interesting to see what each runner chose to eat for "re-fuel-ing."
Golly, those trails sure got me dirty!
Andrew was even dirtier!
Big thanks to our friend Kristine!
She let us crash at her beautiful home that was only 4 miles from the starting line.
We're hoping she'll want to run it with us in February.
On Sunday, August 15th, 6 months to the day of our first adventure, we returned to Morro Bay, Spooner Cove, and Montana De Oro, and this visit was just as wonderful as our first.
On our first visit, I already knew that Mister Andrew Calasanz was "THE Man".
The only man.
I look forward to all the adventures our future together holds.
Thank you for sharing in our journey.
