Ricardo Breceda Stagecoach



Here’s another great Ricardo Breceda statue of a stagecoach and team of horses to brighten up your morning.  This sculpture is located at Mr. Breceda’s “showroom” which is along Highway 79 near Vail Lake.  Stop by and take a look at the many statues for sale and maybe take one home!

Temecula Wine Country Tour


The Temecula Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area) currently boasts over 40 wineries producing a wide variety of wines.  We recently went on a wine tour and were impressed with the beauty of the area and the quality of the wines.  This pic shows part of the Avensole Winery vineyard.

Southern California Homebrewers Festival


I recently attended the 25th annual Southern California Homebrewers Festival held at Vail Lake east of Temecula. Forty three clubs were on-site, each pouring between 8 and 32 different homebrews, resulting in well over 600 products on tap.  This pic shows the beautiful Society of Barley Engineers bar, with two handsome homebrewers getting ready to serve one of the 2000+ attendees.
