The Lazy Daze Morro Bay gathering officially ended yesterday, although quite a few people were hanging around another day. We had a really good time visiting with some old Lazy Daze friends we hadn’t seen for awhile and met lots of new people. And there were quite a few vegans in the group so we had lots of food choices at the pot lucks.
We still wanted to do a few more things in this area but couldn’t bring ourselves to keep paying $35 a night, so we moved nine miles east to El Chorro Regional Park, midway between Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo. Jim was getting bugged by mosquitoes at the state park, anyway, and so far they don’t seem to be around here. This is a nice San Luis Obispo county park, $23/night for dry camping, $35 for full hookups. We’re in the cheap seats. There are restrooms, water, and they let you dump at one of the hookup sites. The only downside is we’re close to Hwy 1 so there is some traffic noise.
The park has a lovely botanical garden, golf course, picnic areas, and a dog park.
Strange to see all these turkeys on the golf course.
We wandered around the gardens and took a hike up the hill across from our site.
Lots of colorful flowers in the botanical garden.
And birds everywhere, even pecking at our windows.
We got some good ideas for places to stay and things to see in California from the folks at Morro Bay, so we plan to chill for a couple days and do some trip planning, check out San Luis Obispo, and do a little hiking near the coast.
