Open Letter to Mel - Things to Do on the Central Coast
Hey Mel, Get acquainted with some of these hot spots!
Los Osos (The Bear) is a sweet community just south of Morro Bay and not
touristy. Check out Montana De Oro State Park. On the drive into the park
you'll see a bunch of cars on the right side of the road in the eucalyptus
forest. That's HAZARDS, a surf spot...a fun hike down to the beach. In the
park; Montana De Oro, follow the road to end and then hike along the bluffs
above the ocean, beautiful and scenic...there's also hiking at the end of
the campgrounds, but watch out for poison oak! You can end by hanging at the
beach with the big rock near shore, as you enter the park.
Also in Los Osos ask some locals about the sand dunes that you enter through
a neighborhood....bring your cardboard!
The Elfin Forest~ in Los Osos there's a boardwalk walk/hike amongst the Oak
Trees, go off the boardwalk into the trees and explore under the oak
canopies. A real elf/fairy adventure!
Morro Bay~ Morro Bay State Park, pass the golf course take a right onto a
road that skirts the water...at the end is a cozy restaurant and Kayak
rentals. The rentals are a blast to explore the estuary, sand spit, and the
harbor! A fun afternoon kayak, but watch the tides.
Cayucos~ Beach town North of Morro Bay 10 mins. "Good Clean Fun" on the Main
Street is the surf shop where you can rent wet suits and boogie boards,
Flash just told me they are not there anymore...however he said there is
some other shop...explore! Cayucos has the best beach to boogie board by the
This will get you going... Hey!In SLO****check out Madonna Mountain on
Madonna Road off Higuera.
Another adventure is my FAVORITE BEACH "The COVE", just north of Cambria
about 50 mins. from SLO... Off HWY 1, north of Cambria and San Simeon take
the road to William Randolph's Hearst State Beach, you can take the first
left to the entrance,there's a kiosk or continue down the road and park with
all the other cars, and enter through the fence...no charge. The beach is
always sunny, even if there's fog on the coast. At the end of the beach you
might see some nudies, also at the end of the beach are the caves! A must to
venture and discover sea stars and the likes!
As you walk along the beach you will notice a path above the beach along the
bluffs 50 ft or so...it's a great hike along the coast, It goes above the
beach, thru a grove of cypress and then comes out along the bluffs above the
ocean and ends at our windsurfing beach Arroyo Laguna..about 2 miles..
Google some of these spots to get a feel of where they are. Have fun Mel!You
sound great. I miss the ocean when I hear you exploring the coast. Miss you
bunches, you sweet thing! Hugs,Jan
