Around Morro Bay
It has turned out to be a big week for us in many ways... on Wednesday we headed north up to San Simeon to see the pier and
check it out for a plein air trip. It was still a bit overcast and cool so we decided to continue north up the Big Sur coast and we drove for a few miles and saw a full parking lot of cars and folks walking up and down a boardwalk next to the beach. Well we had to pull in and see what they were all looking at... it was the annual migration and molting of over a thousand elephant seals.
The boardwalk for the public was probably about one quarter mile long. The photo just shows one section of the beach where they were all laying around, throwing sand over themselves with their flippers and trying to stay cool in the sunlight.
On Thursday we drove up to the Big Town of Harmony with a population of 18. It's just a turnoff with a few buildings but there is a pottery studio and gallery, a glass studio and gallery, and a tiny little café run by an Italian Chef. After cruising the galleries, we sat out on the patio and had cappuchino.
After a brief rest in the rig, we headed down the coast with the dogs to Pismo Beach where we ran into a Vintage Trailer Rally.
That's all for now.... the next post will be from San Juan Bautista.
