Steve and I always buy Salt-Water Taffy and this time we found a wonderful new place. I was just messing around and separated all the flavors. Now, what's wrong with that? I picked and Steve picked our special favorite ones and I just fixed it so we could find our own. Somehow, Steve took extra time in the room in the early morning and wrote me this message. No, I'm not O.C.D. Thank you very much!
There's so many close neat places near to visit. There's downtown San Luis Obisbo, and there's the western town of Templeton, Horse trails and camping areas for horses. Riders can go riding on the beach. Heaven. That's really in the town of Los Osos and can be seen from the bay to the south.
Morro Bay Campground has a wonderful area for tent and trailer camping. Our first trip was when we were newly married we camped there because it's inexpensive and really the best place we've ever camped, and its in the pine trees (Well, almost our favorite. We love Lake Cachuma ) The pine and ocean sea air was is so refreshing!
Back... almost 40 years ago, there were sea otters, but they were really, really rare. I love just them. The otters seem like kittens and play and love their babies. Oooohhhh. They are really common now and can be spotted all up the coast. We took our kids up to see them. I bought Kiely the Sea Otter Watercolor at the bottom of the page and it's been in her room her whole life. Kiely's little blessed beginning, started on our vacation here. We were so grateful and we really believe that it was a miracle gift from Heavenly Father. How would our lives be without her?
The kids all wanted to see an otter so bad (especially me) and we really traveled up toward Jade Beach to try and find one. There were lots of tall cliffs, rough waves, and turquoise water.
A big huge bus of German tourists were trying to find otters for pictures just like us, but their cameras were huge with big lenses. My children all piled-out of our big Mormon van. And I said, "Look Gretchen, a BEAVER!" "Foreigners are so funny, watch them jump around when they see one." I loved making fun of them. Maybe it was their big cameras and the way they looked at our large family. Nooooo, they're not all ours. hahahaha
Marnie thought she saw one and pointed it out to me. I knew I was looking at one and I started really jumping around--I was so excited and happy, we saw it first! "Nah, nah, na-na na!" I said to Steve, "Look, Look Steve, there's a BEAVER!"
July has to be the best for short ocean side anniversary trips and it is such a wonderful bay. It's a vacation site never to be forgotten by anyone visiting there.
Why did I actually write in my blog that the tourist bus was full of Germans? I say, "My German ancestors are getting even with me!" Years of getting even.
