Relaxing at Blacksmiths Square


Recently, I spent a relaxing time at Blacksmith Square in Livermore. Blacksmith Square is a little section that has a couple of small wineries, a brewery, an olive oil shop and an artisan shop. I found it by accident (after driving past a couple of times) but I am glad I did:

People enjoying themselves
One of the brick buildings of the square. These buildings were from when the area was a big blacksmith plant
One thing I liked was all the colors and plants around:



The few shops were good. I loved the artists shop:

Oil from the Victorine Olive Oil Shop
Got to love those who are creative (above and below):




 And there were some tastings done:

Some craft beer and red wine
White Wine
And some music:


Blacksmith Square in Livermore was a great find and a nice relaxing way to spend the day.
