Morro Bay was a ray of sunshine. It’s a coastal city about an hour and 50 minutes north from Santa Barbara known for Morro Rock, an extinct volcanic mound towards the end of the bay. You can’t miss it because it stands around 576 feet tall.
Getting here was easy if you take the right turn. I missed it and ended up going through the wetlands which was actually not a bad detour. When I finally arrived in downtown, I was happy to be able to find parking quickly and made my way to the harbor.
The bay was my favorite part. I sat in one of the benches and watched kayaks and boats pass by for a few minutes. Then, I decided to walk around a bit in downtown. I walked into one of the stores that sold knick knacks and then decided to eat in one of the restaurants right by the water. The food was pretty good.
A few minutes after lunch, I made my way to Morro Rock. There were a ton of tourists around. The day was a bit cool but, good enough for a walk. I roamed around for a bit then decided it was time to go back to my hotel.
