Paso Robles – a siren’s call luring us away from the sea

Once we were back on the coast, it was really hard to think about leaving it again. Being there on the water, with the waves crashing in, the breeze wafting in to cool things down, and the sea life to enjoy, made me question our plans. They weren’t very solid at this point anyway. We’d […]
