Morro Bay

We decided to stay in Morro Bay for the night to:
1- Break up the drive from Santa Cruz 
to San Diego, and
2- To see a friend I haven't seen in 15 years.
(on a side note: 15 years? How'd that happen?!)
We chose to stay at the 456 Embarcadero
due to the good reviews online,
the proximity to the water,
and the AAA rate :)

Having never been to this area, 
we were taking a chance
on what we'd find...
...and what we found 
Upon waking in the morning,
I grabbed my camera and hopped across the street 
to photograph the mirror image created
by the picturesque
stillness of the water. 
(Reminder: You can click on the pictures to view them larger...
and for these, you are going to want to! Promise!) 

To you this might look like an old wooden post with bird doo all over it...
to me, this is nautical at its best!
Teal-colored wood,
ivory rope,
sailboats gallore...
I LOVE it! 

Morning light...
one of my favorite times of day...

The town of Morro Bay is delightful.
Quaint, for sure.
Dreamy, no doubt.
 Even the motel is cute...
(now, how many towns can say that?)

Most of the locals have flippers...
...or wings...

This little guy was so delightful in his (or her)
morning swim,
that he made me wonder why I don't have a morning swim ritual.
Something to ponder on...
or take action on...
it is summer, anyway!

We found these two while we were out on a morning walk...
we think the female was on the rock,
and the male was in the water,
very obviously strutting his stuff for his mate.

Although our stay in Morro Bay was 
less than 24 hours, 
we will, without a doubt,
be back to explore.
We hope to stay here again,
was lovely!
The recent renovations were perfect...
clean lines,
calming colors,
comfortable bed,
a yoga mat and robes in the room,
the best "free" breakfast we had on our trip,
friendly staff,
and most importantly (to us):
steps away from the water.

'Til our next adventure,
we bid you
"aloha 'oe"
