The sun is shining and the outdoors are calling. How are folks in San Benito County spending their weekends and long days during this stretch of gorgeous weather?
Bill Mifsud: Tasting wine along Cienega road. We have beautiful wineries in our county including Calera Wine Company and DeRose Vineyards. Taking house tours of our subdivisions in Hollister.
Keith Snow: Barbecues in my backyard are nice. I can overlook the mountains and watch the sunset. Beautiful view. I also like taking nice country drives.
Tara Hernandez: Spending long afternoons watching the kids play competitive soccer in Hollister and at away games. Taking long drives in the rural parts of the county and going to the movies.
Ruth Erickson: Enjoy all this county has to offer: our bucolic scenery and pleasant weather, wine trail, the Pinnacles National Park, and our three state parks—Hollister Hills, Fremont Peak and San Juan Bautista historic park. There is always an event going on in the county—the Olive Festival on Saturday sounds like an interesting and special event to attend.
Mary Zanger: I relish the fresh air and sunshine in the great outdoors. Joining my group, “Adopt a Highway” and volunteering to keep the highway beautiful for two causes: the environment, because plastic drink bottles flow to the Pacific Ocean via the Pacheco Creek and for the peace movement. Our group, Hollister Peace Vigil, always needs volunteers who enjoy healthy exercise for important causes. Find me in the phone book.
