|The Oak Tree Across the Street at Sunset|
The oak tree here lives across the street from me in the Riverbank tract of Paso Robles. It is the perfect frame for the sunset each night. Were I to move I would miss both the tree and the stunning sunsets that appear behind it every evening we have clouds in the sky.
The other thing I would miss most is the opportunity to roam through all the vineyards with my camera in my hand. It would be hard to choose one favorite among them. I most often visit the Bethel Road vineyards: Veris Vineyards, Peachy Canyon Winery, Castoro Cellars, and Zenaida, which is across Highway 46 West from Bethel Road. But I cannot leave out Doce Robles, where I often stop to capture the sunset on the way to Templeton in the evenings.

Our house is that white spot in the middle of the clump of trees in the center.
I suppose if I have to choose the vineyard I would most miss seeing, though, it would be the ones surrounding our Templeton home -- our personal vineyard views. One is over the hill and I see I when I'm in my garden. I believe it's part of the Rotta Winery, since I've walked to the top of that hill and looked down at our house.
