habitat ~ 10/31/10 ~ Morro Bay


Morro Bay
October 31, 2010

This picture was actually taken from Los Osos looking back across Morro Bay and the State Park. I still haven't figured out if it's officially called Los Osos or Baywood Park. In any case, we were there for their annual Oktoberfest. This year they moved the bandstand and beer to the main street. It was a tad too loud and crowded for us, so we ventured through the neighborhood to walk off our full bellies of cheap (i.e., $3) and very yummy brats and tri-tip sandwiches.

Morro Bay feels more like a real bay to me with quiet waters compared to the much larger Monterey Bay at home. It's particularly nice this time of year with sun and very little wind. Around the corner in the second pic is the Elfin Forest. To the west is MontaƱa de Oro State Park, which Andy likes for the trail running.

Seems like a nice quiet place to escape Oktoberfest beer-drinking crowds. :)

:) It was very nice. I have to laugh a bit at how quick you are to comment on my backdated posts. Thanks, twg, I appreciate you. Hubsters has kicked me out of the kitchen while he makes homemade hamburger buns (with beer, btw) and while watching football in the living room. My only respite as the sun goes down is to entertain myself on the computer in the office...
