76 degrees on the Central Coast

Yep, that’s right, the official high temperature today was 76!  And was it ever enjoyable.  Any warmer and we’d be testing our air conditioning!

But, first back to yesterday…..

We walked into town about 5:30 just as the sun was setting.  We detoured down to the beach to enjoy the last official moments of daytime.

After enjoying another of God’s great scenes, we met up with our friends from Downey, Debbie & Bill and had dinner at Brad’s in downtown Pismo Beach, just two block from the ocean.

Today it was forecast to be a great day so we decided to pack a lunch, load up the bikes and head for Morro Bay to visit a park we saw from highway 101 last week and go for a bike ride.  Once we finally figured out how to get into the park, we unloaded the bikes and found out that they had about 3 miles of trails leading to the beach, another park, a high school and back towards town.  We explored all of these except the route back to town which we will do on a future visit.

During the ride, one spur of the paved path led to the beach  with many small sand dunes. 2011-02-05 12.13.41

After the ride which was 5 miles (rather short for us), we had a picnic lunch at the park.  Then packed up and headed through Los Osos to Montana de Oro state park. It is about 5 miles west of Los Osos and once you get there, the park stretches for about 5 more miles.  One part of the park has a great beach area with very coarse grain sand and many rocks.2011-02-05 14.18.41After visiting the park, we drove back through Los Osos and then back to the RV.

The good news:  Tomorrow’s weather will be just like today’s!  Hope this holds for next week so I can get more golf in!
