Paso Robles is my new home

We moved to Paso Robles nine months ago.

It's taken me most of that time to get used to the California climate and culture. It is much different than my home town area of Chicago, Illinois.

The people who live here call it "Paso". The population is about 20,000. There are about 150 wineries surrounding the city.

Paso Robles is located almost exactly half way from both San Francisco and Los Angeles. We are in the "coastal" area of the state since we are just one-half hour from the Pacific Ocean.
