This past Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of summer. We spent the weekend doing some wine tasting at Calera Winery, who are know for their fabulous Pinot Noir varietals. Turns out they were also voted Winery of the year in 2008. Lush and yummy, we came home with a couple of bottles and had a wonderful back yard BBQ with the extended family. Meanwhile dear daughter spent the day frolicking at the beach in Santa Cruz where the annual Blues festival was played out with the likes of BB King and Joe Cocker. What did you do to mark the beginning of Summer?
