I went on a motorcycle ride with some dear friends of mine today. ( Helen Vinokurova, her husband Jerry Craig Vinokurova and Daniel Davidson ) Jerry and I started at his and Helen's home & met Helen and Dan at Templeton Market. We then headed to Cambria to hang out at Moonstone beach for a while. Then we were off to Morro Bay's Hofbrau for some lunch. We checked out the breakwater out at Morro Rock. From there we took off to Baywood, Cuesta by the Sea and Los Osos to look at the Back Bay. Finally we stopped Home Depot parking lot in San Luis Obispo where we took these pictures and parted ways! Great day, great ride, awesome friends!
Morro Bay-Morro Rock (now a protected bird estuary), and the seals that were just really entertaining to me lol
Public shout out to my 1st brother Ben.. Born on a school bus on a hippy commune south of Nashville Tennessee on April 12th 1978. Fell out the back window at Morro Rock in 1980 busted his head and had a vision to be a left handed artist with blue eyes always staring at the sky... Summer Solstice year 2000 while driving on I-5 northbound past Stockton California at 4am 2 asleep in the back, Ben riding shotgun and keeping me awake, a UFO appeared in the sky and swooped down on us and I almost wrecked the rented SUV. Public shout out to my brother and good friend, Ben, soon to be famous artist, lost his virginity at a Korean massage parlour.
Hi guys, I was cruising around a website that had old retro scifi pulp fiction magazine covers and pictures, and look what I found. Looks like you got buzzed back in the 50s, when the future was super cool, LOL!!! I didn't know Morro Rock harboured a secret air base. ;-)

Tonight we are staying at Morro Bay, which is named after Morro Rock, a very large rock in the middle of Morro Bay. We walked the causeway out to it. Then after we were back on the mainland, I took a picture of it just as the sun was setting behind it. This is a very beautiful and peaceful place As we were walking back to the mainland we were entertained by some sea otters playing near the shore.
Yesterday we got a call at TMMC for a CSL out by Morro Rock on the beach side He is a young healthy yearling that didn't need to be captured. However there were so many people trying to chase the poor animal back to the water or get close enough to take a picture with it that we where forced to put it through the traumatic ordeal of a capture. If you see any animals on the beach that aren't supposed to be there, don't touch it, don't talk to it, just leave it alone. If you believe it is injured and needs medical attention call TMMC or call the police or harbor patrol who will call us and we can come take care of it with proper training and as little stress and further injury to the animal. Thank you all so much for your help! I also have an update on the CSL- ALI he got to the hospital at Monterey Bay and we discovered he had a broken jaw. It was also decided that he can not be release back into the wild because of his attachment to people. Since he needs to be placed in a facility, the doctors have decid ...

Driven To Share Science shared Brent Haywood's photo. "Morro Rock is a 581-foot (177 m)[1] volcanic plug located just offshore from Morro Bay, California, at the entrance to Morro Bay Harbor. A causeway connects it with the shore, effectively making it a tied island. The area surrounding the base of Morro Rock can be visited. The rock is protected as the Morro Rock State Preserve. Climbing on the rock or disturbing the bird life is forbidden by law." - Wikipedia TY Dob Francise
In Los Osos. You can see the famous Morro Rock from there.
Yay last week of July my family and I will be staying 8 days in beautiful Morro Bay I'm so excited. The house has awesome ocean and Morro Rock views. Three blocks above the Embarkadero and two blocks from Dorn's Restaurant. We are very blessed. God is good.
Another view of Morro Rock, sigh. Love it!

We had excitment at Morro Bay today. We went for our morning walk, and there on the beach were trucks, trailers and beach buggies and men all dressed in black. The company, Quixote had brought all this equipment in to shoot a comercial with Pay Dirt, and the big rock. We were amazed at all the equipment it took. We watched as the crowds gathered, but security wouldn't let you near. It truly was amazing how much work it takes to make a commercial.
Sitting here in Morro Bay I wonder what movie there filming on the south side of the rock

This afternoon, Lisa and I were at the foot of Morro Rock watching the sea otters and their babies. Real cute, but, more on that never. It wasn't too difficult to notice 4 boys floating around somewhere between the ages of 9 and 10. The seeds of trouble. They were fiddling around about 15 feet from my position. The red flag they were waving around was in the form of 10 lb. rocks being tossed, by them, in the sort of direction of the sea otters and their little tiny babies. Something had to be done. Something had to be said and soon. I turned in their direction and took strides that would close the gap quickly. We made eye contact with one another and then I said the following: "Say boys. I didn't come over here to tell you to stop throwing rocks into the water near this flotilla of sea otters. No, I just wanted to tell you that if you were observed by the game warden doing this, I can sell you an extended warranty that will guarantee you making a very unpleasant phone call to your parents.

What a great morning we had with Paul Bessemer and his lovely wife, Yedida Bessemer! We went to the beach, ate brunch, and hung out at Morro Rock watching the otters frolic. Thank you, Paul and Yedida, for a wonderful time! Enjoy your journey, and drive safely!!!

I got bi*ch slapped yesterday. The blow didn't come from usual suspects, it came from the freakin universe. Rigi & I were on our predawn prowl. Me wearing my fabulous camo neck scarf. This time we went to Morro Rock. After walking for a while, I felt the need for a break and noticed a new bench right near the jump off spot to the surf break. I sat, Rigi continued her sweep of the area. I sat for quite a while, watching the waves, remembering the last time I caught a really thick, scary, heart in the throat, wave, was a few years ago right here on the day myself and 30 other surfers did a paddle out and scattered my friend Bill's ashes. Bill and did a lot together. We sailed locally and in Mexico. Surfed,drank, fought,hugged, laughed and cried . He died while surfing right here. I wouldn't have even been out in those huge waves that day if it wasn't for Bill's memorial. It was one of the best waves of my life. I must have sat there on that bench for quite a while, because it was now getting light. Rememb ...
The "reduced" project described as "Box 4" will sweep within 1.4 miles of Morro Rock, along the sandspit to the south and out into the Estero Bay, EXACTLY where these Harbor Porpoise live and play.
I'm in San Luis Obispo for the next couple of days for a water polo tournament. We are actually staying in Morrow Bay . I love this little town and the big Morro Rock that seems to have fallen from the sky and imbedded itself forever on the shores of the pacific. Tomorrow I'll take my team down to the wharf between games for really fresh fish & chips.I live coming down here. It's a lovely place.
Season for Peak Fees: 05/15 to 09/15 Morro Bay State Park features lagoon and natural bay habitat. The bay's most prominent landmark is Morro Rock. The park has opportunities for sailing fishing, hiking, and bird watching.
Had an awesome trip taking Rebekah Judkins to Cal Poly SLO. Almost every "coast access" exit we go off and found some cool places. Enjoyed Hofbrau Morro Bay for their chowder and hand carved roast beef. Morro Rock was pretty cool, found tons of hermit crabs eating one of their buddy's and fighting over the shell. The campus and downtown San Luis Obispo, California was very hip and young. What an awesome place to grow. Don't forget my last piece of advise: "stay away from stupid people" :)
Had a nice time at Cambria, stayed at Captain's Cove Inn, it was a nice comfortable room. Great price too. Visited Hearst's Castle, went to Morro Rock with our Son Ron Jr. and our Daughter-in-law Ruby and Grandchildren. We rode on an electric boat with our son as the captain. Ate at some great restaurants. Ate an Olalliberry pie from Lynn's bakery, it was delicious. Nice to be home, but need to return back there soon to visit a light house and go for a different tour at Hearst Castle.
The story of Morro Bay's Morro Rock is fascinating!

"You Know You Grew Up In Los Osos/Morro Bay If..." --If you haven't seen it already, you may want to check it out. People have posted some pretty great memories. Some of these were after my time living there I think. :) You make fun of the people from the valley who vacation there... Hate... valley people because they are nothing but "Fresnoids" and "Bakersfield Rednecks" to you... Have ever been to Montana De Oro just to chill... Know EVERY person from your elementary school to high school... Just tell people who don't know where your from that you are from SLO... Then you realize that they don't know what SLO means... You know that Los Osos and Morro Bay share the Los Osos Middle School and Morro Bay High School... You have no high school spirit at all... Have ever had to point someone in the direction of Morro Rock...even though it is right THERE... Or you have just pretended you do not know what "the rock" is...
