We headed down to central coast camping at Morro Bay state park.
The marshes and bay are fertile areas for many bird species
We stayed one night up at the strand north of town then back to MBSP for the most amazing Sunday football games ever
Monday found us heading south to Pismo beach state park
A section of Grover besch is alloyed for drivi g on so we went down there, parked and walked the beach then had lunch watching the surf waves roll in.
We scored 2 nights in a wonderful spot in the north Pismo state park campground
Next door to the campground inside the park is a butterfly grove. Thousands of Monarch butterfly’s hanging out. About 28,000 by last count. According to AP news, over 250,000 counted overwintering here in California. Way up from recent countd.
We hiked down to Oceano campground via the beach then returned thru the dunes.
Time for a nap
Next day, after 2 days in Pismo and a long discussion, we elected to head back to Morrow bay state park. I rode my bike up 33 miles on back roads while S drove the van. And I beat her! Haha. We knew, from looking at reservations site,there were dry sites available so when we arrived at the entrance the lady gave me several open sites to review and we rode our bikes around to check.
Decided on one with plenty of sun for solar and general warmth (it’s cool in winter here) then dumped waste tanks and have settled in.
Early morning we made our coffee, dumped waste and headed home up the 101. Found a spot to wash the van in West Sacramento. IW for a little R&R at home.
