Butterflies or Wine tasting — decisions, decisions…oh, what shall I do first?

It’s that time of year again – no, not when the swallows return to Capistrano but better yet, when thousands of  Monarch Butterflies hover over Pismo Beach’s Butterfly Trees – limbs of Eucalyptus and Monterey Pines.  They’re absolutely fascinating and will remain in Pismo from late October through February.  You don’t even realize what you’re looking at until they begin to flutter around gracefully and you almost think it’s petals or fall leaves.To imagine that these little creatures hail from as far as Canada and travel over the Sierra Mountains just to vacation in Pismo and we only have to drive a couple of hours to enjoy it gives one a new perspective.  I’m no Huell Howser, but it’s “amazing” and way worth a stop for one of California’s most precious and undiscovered treasures, Pismo Beach.  After a couple hours of observation, it was hard to say goodbye to those little fairies but I had only 24 hours to accomplish quite a few fun things.
