Where I stayed
This was the day we were at Monty's, but I think we were so awed by actually being there, that we did'nt actually get around to telling you all about how the day ended !
Mont'y's was fabulous, & very thought / debate provoking, so will tell you all about that in loads more detail when we get home.
When we left Flag is up Farm, we kinda doubled back a bit, past where we had stayed the previous night at Peasoup Andersens, & on northwards to the coast again.
We were heading for an overnight stay at Morro Bay, a small fishing harbour, with set in a nature / bird reserve.
The little town seemed quite unremarkable as we left CA 1, but how that changed as we dropped down to the sea front. It is absolutly lovely - little pastel painted wooden clad buildings,all clustered around the bay
We looked right over the bay & out to Morro Rock.!
Julie was beside herself..... flocks of Pelicans circled around the rock, & we could hear sea lions !!
I've never seen Julie dump her cases so quick..... she was actually tapping her fingers on the door with impatience to get back out ! No time to unpack then !!!!
A short walk to the harbour front & we were spellbound, it is so beautiful. The sea lions were just a little way of in the harbour, but we discovered that 2 or 3 stayed laying out on the concrete stantions under the boardwalk, these were huge - so probably the bulls, totaly ignoring people as we looked down at them, & getting VERY vocal if another sea lion approached.
The place is stunning ! love to all, especially my 'glue ' back home. I do miss you !!! & Sarah we soooo look forward to your comments xxxx TAJ.
Ditto to everything above including the fact that we all wait with baited breath for Sarah's contributions:)xx
On our way to Morro Bay we pitstopped for coffee and cinnemon buns to refuel
After Julie and I dragged ourselves away from the sea we set off for Morro really not expecting to be as open jawed as we were - a sunset on fire, as pelicans dived for fish and sealions callsed - not only beautiful but surreal!
We didn't even mind the Sealion's midnight calls or those at one, two, three, four oh, well you get the picture!
Love to all and thanks for commenting Hope, nudge your brother and Colin please. Dorcus have you found us? Love Kim xxxxxxxxxx
