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.
