Ahhhh!!! Cool at last!

We left Bakersfield about 9am. Quite hot already. We took Highway 58 through Buttonwillow to Santa Margarita then down Highway 101 to San Luis Obispo. SLO was in the low 70's. We had lunch overlooking the river at the Network cafe. We then headed up Highway 1 to El Churro Regional Park. The park is almost empty today. You can’t get reservations for groups smaller than 10 sites which is good. The Renaissance Pleasure faire was last weekend so we couldn't have gotten in until possibly yesterday. The weather is so nice here. We stayed here last September. This location is close to SLO and Morro Bay and nice and cool but not cold like at Morro Bay today.

Above left, the required picture of the RV in the site. Above right our campsite. Just beyond the fence is an arbor where we'll have morning tea.

Pictures of the arboretum and the creek that runs just below the campsites.

Lots of flowers though not as many as last year. Possibly a result of the Renaissance Faire a couple of days previous.

Above left, Morro Rock in Morro Bay. Above right, a truck loading "Honey Pots". We watched a while to see if he loaded all eight on the truck that can carry six. he didn't. He loaded 7 of them. Retirement provides extra time for these kinds of studies.
