THE Trip, THE Encore' :: Bakersfield California to Morro Bay California, Left Coast Here We Come!

Copyright 2013, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

April 2, 2013

It is time to make one more westerly trek, and finally almost 6 months after leaving Southeast Michigan, we are going to make the left coast (the Pacific ocean).

When I reviewed the photos taken on this travel day I was struck at how diverse they were.  We saw this, that, and this pink pig:

Water delivery, and even some reflections of the clouds.

Oil wells as far as the eye can see.

Lots of almond trees too, no buds or leaves yet - -

Seriously doubt that these tanks will hold water any longer. Down below along the roadside, California poppies.

And, a few picturesque barns.

And, many miles of grapes, most likely soon to be wine.

Yes, we are driving on the wrong side of the road, we are in a construction zone.

Believe they are cleaning the embankment, getting rid of loose stone, gravel, rock.  Look close, see that orange tshirt?

Have a closer look, excuse the quality of the photo.  I was quite amazed, the workers hanging there that way, working to protect the traveling public.  CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!

We arrived in Morro Bay, had a bit of a thrill when we pulled into the wrong part of the campground where we had a reservation, a reservation that was a bit hard to snag.  No way was Tana gonna fit in those sites.  Whew!  Cross the street we still had to fiddle a bit getting Tana and the truck into the campsite.  We are having a run on small campsites.  I'll share some of the evening with you next time.
