Natalie has come up with the brilliant idea of A Walk About Town, a weekly feature hosted at Coffee and a Book Chick. Anyone can participate…just write about a spot in your town, or a spot you’ve visited.
I live in Morro Bay, which is a small town on the coast of California. Lucky me, since we live on a hill (and lucky me I don’t live with a guy named Jack), I can see the Pacific Ocean from my living room. I can also see Morro Rock (which translates as Rock Rock, or more specifically, “a rocky outcrop in the shallow waters of a harbor, often round in shape and sometimes very high” Rock…however you look at it, it’s redundant).
I rarely venture down to the Embarcadero, which is the street that runs along the bay. It’s mostly tourist shops and restaurants. But it’s also kinda pretty, so one morning I headed out before the shops opened to take some pictures of the bay and that big rock rock that marks the entrance to the harbor.
