It’s been a hot summer in the San Joaquin Valley, and even though autumn is now here, the temperatures are still high. We were able to arrange a week at the beach with our kids; a chance for us to get to cool weather and see our grandchildren; a chance for our kids to get a break from the mounting tensions of their jobs.
The central coast of California is a great destination for those of us living in the San Joaquin Valley. It’s only about three hours away, and for the most part, the roads are easily traveled with little traffic, especially if you go during the week, which we did. The kids have farther to come, making their way down Highway 101. My son-in-law commented that when he mentions Morro Bay, much less Cayucos, to his bay area friends, that he gets a quizzical look and a “where’s that?” comment. It’s a great place to get away from it all.
One day we went to Morro Bay to look in all the touristy shops and to find a pair of shoes for tiny granddaughter. The kids were headed to a wedding at the end of the week and still needed some spiffy shoes for Leeya to wear with the twirly purple dress I had brought for her.
I always walk through The Garden Gallery in Morro Bay just for relaxation and to see some of the beautiful things they have:
And decorative items.
And seasonal items.
Terry and I provided the place to stay: Pier View Suites. And Jen provided the vegan meals. Perfect combination.
