Morro Bay Harbor, Cats, Kayaks & Elephant Seals
This morning we headed over to Morro Bay Harbor to check things out. It was a beautiful, sunny morning. And wouldn't you know it, mom finds a friend in one of my arch enemies, smack dab off the bat. Cats! You gotta wanna chase 'em!
Mom got this really cool picture of a duck swimming, in what looks like paint. But, it's really not. It's the reflection of a bunch of kayaks. Cool huh?
A little farther along we found this really funny window display for a shop called "Shark's Grin". It is so neat the creativity one finds in these coastal villages. I wonder if it's something in the ocean air? :)
After strolling the harbor we headed up the coast. Our first stop was Moonstone Beach. There is a really nice walk above the bluffs and, praise be, dogs can be on it! Mom took pictures. I tried to catch squirrels. There are a million of them living under the boardwalk!
Next we headed back up to the place where you can look at those sea slugs. Oh, I mean elephant seals. I'll let you in on a little secret. Skip the place where buses and the throngs of people go. Just past there is another "viewing" spot that people seem to miss. It has a great path along the bluffs and the seals are in a much more interesting setting. There is also a nice view of Piedras Blancas lighthouse.
On the way home we stopped for a walk at a place called Washburn Park.
Another great day for me! Hope it was good for you!
