Morro Bay is not a new stop for us, in fact Bill lived here his senior year in college at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. But it is a whole new world for both of us to be retired, living in our beautiful home, and having the time and space to just "be" here.

The Morro Dunes RV Park is very quiet, even at 90% full. It is a mix of retirees, families and young people with surf and paddle boards. There are tents, small to large motorhomes and 5th wheels, and lots of travel trailers from very old to very new. Plentiful and clean bathhouses with laundry rooms ($2 wash, $.50 dry), a nice dog run, and a small store with basics. The access to the beach (dog-friendly), and Morro Rock, make the location ideal. We will definitely be back.
One morning we drove out to the other side of Morro Rock where you can get up close to the shear rock walls that tower overhead. Not sure why a big ol' rock is so fascinating, but it really is :-) No seals or otters, but lots of birds. Lots of people for a weekday too. Summer break is here.
