Morro Bay Photos

Mar 16

As I mentioned before, we tried to stop in Morro Bay back in January but we didn’t quite make it. This time, though, we planned ahead enough to get reservations at Morro Dunes RV Park which is situated right next to the beach. I love being able to walk just a few hundred yards to get right down to the ocean. The town of Morro Bay has lots of great seafood restaurants and we’ve met people who just love coming back here time after time.  I can hardly blame them, it is a lovely place and close to everything that the central Californian coast has to offer. Today we drove up Route 1 to Hearst Castle. The tours there are really well done and while the trip up to the castle itself is a bit of a harrowing ride, the bus drivers know how to do it at quite a clip. Most of the rooms that we visited could house a dozen Airstreams like our Tardis.

This is my kind of pool! Leslie and I are both pretty disappointed that William Randolph Hearst never invited us to spend a few weeks at his castle. Just because he died 15+ years we were born is no excuse.

In the spirit of “a picture is worth 1000 words” I’ll leave you with these last thoughts on this destination.

Oh boy! Sunset!

I wonder if this fisherman missed the note about there being a high surf warning today.
