Morro Bay

After being in Pismo Beach, which was rather disappointing, we went to Morro Bay and had a great time there.  This first photo is Morro Rock, 578 feet high, from the top of Black Hill, 661 feet high.  We all know that Morro Rock is at the mouth of the Morro Bay harbor and is one big rock sticking out of the water at the shoreline.  It is actually one of a set of volcanic peaks that remain after erosion has done its thing in this area.
