As a Templeton resident since 1993, I only began to realize how much this area has to offer when I decided to stop working every moment at my business and explore what was around me. I have always enjoyed our Farmers Market in Templeton, but only in this past couple of years have I begun to explore the vineyards, wineries, festivals, galleries, hiking trails, and other attractions that tourists come to see and I hadn’t noticed in my own backyard — literally. The Croad Winery’s vineyard is across my back fence. It’sthe first thing you will see in the video I made of the Croad grape harvest this fall.
In this blog, I will present what I love about North San Luis Obispo County as seen by one who enjoys living here. I will take you to my favorite places in pictures and video so you can see them with me. I will introduce you to some of my favorite artists and musicians here as I discover them. And you can tag along as I visit local tasting rooms and vineyards throughout the year as the seasons change.
