Here are some pics.

The first three pics are of Spooner Cove in Los Osos. This cove had the most spectacular beach rocks/stones that I've ever found. The waves here were of the "kaboom" kind, and much farther out, which the pic doesn't show, were ten foot sets. There was a lone guy out that day surfing. Pretty big cajones to be out in that type of surf, all alone. I would never surf here as it's way too big and powerful for my lowly skill level. Just a short ways down from this area is where a young surfer was killed by a Great White's bite just a week prior.

At one point as I was leaning over to pick up one of my "gems" some large shore break douched me. The water there is about 50 degrees and I'm not used to that kind of chilly. (My surf spot is 65) Everyone on the beach was laughing at me being swirled around in the white wash and so was I. What a doofus! I broke my cardinal rule, "Never turn your back on the ocean". The third pic shows me laughing, hair plastered to my head, looking in the back of the truck for some dry clothes and a towel.

The next two pics are of Morro Bay and the infamous "Morro Bay Rock", a coastal landmark. That morning the wind was blowing and there was a serious offshore wind. The sets rolling in were amazing, perfectly formed peelers held up by the wind, just like the ones I've seen in the islands. These waves I could handle no problem, would be a blast to surf, and for that I would brave the chilly water. Too bad the known population of Great Whites in the area will prevent me from ever paddling out in this area.

The last two are of a hike Wade and I took to the top of Santa Barbara. The one pic shows the Santa Barbara islands off in the background, the other shows the small grassy area where hang gliders like to take off from. It was a GREAT trip for me. Wade loves the mountains & desert and he planned this trip with nothing but me in mind. So, for that, I forgive him for yelling at me about being on the forum the morning we were leaving. As we were standing at the top of this hike he says to me, "Now, isn't this better than being at home on the forum???" He just always has to get his "digs" in.

AK, sounds like a great vacation. So where are the pics?? I love Morro Bay. We stopped there for lunch once when we were on our way home coming back from LA. We came up the coast all the way to Monterey. Stopped at Hearst Castle too.
