Into the wild

This big guy on the left flashed his gorgeous feathers when we encountered him at a winery in Avila Beach the other day. We had planned to go up the coast for a day of beachcombing, wandering, and other non-plans, when a friend told us about Kelsey Winery off See Canyon near Avila where peacocks roamed free.

Of course, I had to go.

A corgie greeted us and became our lifelong friend when we became the only visitors on the premises to put up with his constant demands to play. No joke ... I think we tossed his slobbery tennis ball about 30 times. Each. But it was my birthday and he made us laugh, so we didn't mind.

And then there were the peacocks, waddling around and piercing the air with their mating calls. The excursion was like a trip to Wild Kingdom, Lol ... all within a few miles of the Pacific Ocean.

Here's to a beachy week, my friends ... wherever you are.
