We Had Our Chi Adjusted
Saturday: (07/19) Sausage and onion gravy on bread for breakfast. We started with a visit to the SLO Arboretum (above) just down the hill here in the park. It's also a good visit and is a good source of ideas for converting our yards landscaping o a Mediterranean native plant scape. Next we stopped at the Sierra Vista Regional Hospital where they were offering a free energy balancing clinic. Dawn had found it on the Internet. We've never done that before so, of course, we had to try it. With of chi pushed into shape we were ready to tackle the rest of the day. Lunch at Louisa's Place Restaurant. Excellent breakfasts for lunch. My guacamole bacon omelet was great.The afternoon was spent downtown looking around. We haven't visited this place before but knew it would be good by the crowd. Another fine place to revisit in the future. We returned to cam and had leftovers for dinner. Lou had an ear bothering here so about 2000 we returned to the Sierra Vista Regional Hospital to have it looked at. It was a quick visit and we were back at camp a little after 2230.
Sunday: (07/20) A day visiting thrift stores in Grover Beach and San Luis Obispo. Breakfast at Francisco's Country Kitchen in Arroyo Grande. Dinner at the Pismo Fish an Chips.
Monday: (07/21) We didn't hurry packing to leave and didn't leave the campground until after 1100.
I filled the RV with gas and then we left it at a city park while we went over to Cal Poly to visit the Leaning Tree Arboretum.
It's located up the hill behind their numerous green houses. The campus can be seen in the distance in the photo above left.
This arboretum, though just 5 miles from where we are camped at the San Luis Obispo Arboretum, is in much better shape. That might be because there is more water here on the campus.
More good ideas for our eventual landscape changes at home.
We were finally on the road toward home at 1430. We took Hwy 1 to Morro Bay and then Hwy 41 to Atascadero, the same route we took down. It avoids the steep climb out of San Luis Obispo on Hwy 101. We stopped in Morro Bay for a visit to the hardware store and antique shop.
Then we stopped in Atascadero so I could look at the antique shop Lou and Dawn had seen while I stayed with the RV at the garage. It had a nice garden they wanted me to see. We arrived home a little after 2000. Steak hash and eggs for breakfast. Pork and cheese sandwiches for lunch. Dinner at the Rancho San Miguel Market in Greenfield. Nice super nachoes and a chili relleno with some flan.
