I’ll just go ahead and say it…I think lavender is cool and all, but a festival? Just because it doesn’t float my boat doesn’t mean it doesn’t float other boats. Annie and I went down and checked out the Lavender Festival in the Paso Robles Downtown Park about a week ago with the goal of simply seeing what was going on. We live in a great town and I think it’s important to get out there and explore all of it, even the things that seem like they may not be all that fun.
Aside from the amazing lavender smell all throughout the park there was olive oil, folks that made furniture from wine barrels, other wood furniture, and even some cool and unique birdhouses. Still doesn’t sound fun? Well, it was for us…we love mingling at the events in the park and checking out what other people are doing. We even ran into the lady that makes necklaces with old keys, Annie bought one from her last year at the Lavender Festival and guess what? She bought another one this year.
The point is, get off your butt and go explore. Just because something may not seem like fun YOU can make it fun. And afterwards you can always go get a drink!! I took these photos to give you a little slice of downtown Paso Robles events…small, quaint, cool people, beautiful scenery, and supporting other people that are trying to make a living. Good times peeps!!
