Sunday morning, we left Grover Beach and headed north to Morro Bay. It's about a half a hour's drive to the golf course to drop Mr. SS off to play the second day of his tournament. It was too early to shop, so, I grabbed me a Starbucks and headed for Morro Rock and the beach. It was cloudy and overcast, but being raised in a beach town, I didn't mind that a bit.
As soon as I parked and saw this, I knew I had to get out and walk on the beach.
I love to wiggle my toes in the sand. I pretty much had this to myself for a few minutes and after a short walk, I just sat in the sand and wiggled. (My toes, that is)
so I found this bench and with my coffee, camera and book in hand, I sat here for a couple of hours.
This was my up close view of Morro Rock, with the clouds still hanging over the top.
The end of the rock where it meets the water
The Seagulls looking for food.
Wish I had brought something to feed them. This one came close and looked at me like he was hoping I had something.
I really enjoy the salt air smell of the ocean, listening to the waves as they crash on shore, and the feel of the sand. Even though, I haven't lived near the beach for over 40 years, I am still a beach girl at heart.
But after a couple of hours, the crowds of people brought me back to reality, and it was off for one of my other passions....shopping.
I really didn't find much. I visited several antique stores, a couple of gift shops, a quilt shop and a unique little vintage trim and lace shop that I have been to many times before. I picked up some vintage buttons, which I do seem to love. I will show you those when I use them.
I just had time to get lunch and take it out to the golf course and wait for Mr. SS to finish. I parked right across from the course where I could see him on a couple of greens, then sat and watched the sail boats on the bay.
Here's Morro Rock from where I sat.
Did I mention, that Mr. SS doesn't much care for the beach like I do. (Truth is, he doesn't like anything about it) But as I sat there watching him golf, he looked so handsome in his golf shorts, it really doesn't matter, I just love him anyway.
