then, we drove out to a local winery. on the way we stopped at a stop light behind another car. when the light turned green the car in front of us started to go and a truck came barrelling through the intersection and took off the entire front bumper and demolished this poor girl's car. she had just bought the car 4 weeks ago and now it was destroyed. the kid that hit her was really shook up too but he was driving an old truck that barely had a scratch on it. we waited for the police to come and they took our witness statements and then we continued on our way. it was really really scary!
we went to the first winery we saw, the tolosa winery. we went into the tasting room, decided on our picks and enjoyed the different wines. we browsed the scent gallery, checked out the vats that they store and age the wine in and saw the big grape stomping machines. i really wanted to stomp some myself but they didnt offer that particular activity. we made out selections of which wines we wanted and then got in the car to look for some lunch. we found this great little pizza place and ate quickly then headed for home. we followed the coast all the way home - it was gorgeous!
