let's remember the one day of sunshine we've had this summer...

so far, our sunny california summer has been anything but. last weekend it rained and rained and rained all weekend... kind of like spring. but on the sunday before memorial day, the weather was glorious! it was sunny and warm and breezy.... we took advantage of our twenty-four hours of sunshine and went wine tasting.
we tried 2 different wineries in the santa cruz mountains... testarossa is really close to our casa. they had live music and outdoor seating. we just bought (and finished) a bottle there rather than doing a tasting. 
we'd love to come back to tessarossa with some of our new friends and have a picnic (once the sun comes out again!). 

then we made our way to byington winery which is further in the mountains. 
great views and good wine and lots of fun!

We've had slacker sun up here too, but hoping for a hot summer despite our rainy days!

Ooooh I love the pictures. Oh, I hate it when it rains. On my one month vacay in Cali it was raining for like a week on the 3rd week of March. Boohooo. But no, the rain didn't stop me from going out and making the most out of my vacay, =) Wishing you guys more sunny days

Glad you had a little bit of sunshine. We've been having the same thing. It's rained almost everyday! It's getting crazy!
