Back in the U.S.A.

It started with a business trip for Bogdan, he prepared many months ago. Then, he thought would be nice to attend Dave Wyman's photography tour Water Works in Yosemite. And, few weeks ago, he found some cheap plane tickets for me, so here I am!

He made some huge sacrifices for me, for instance now we sit together on the Big Bear Lake's shore, in a very pleasant shadow, instead of melting and driving in more than 110F (43C) in Death Valley but, hey, this is life! We have to stand by each other in bad or good! 
By the way, this is the view from our room's terrace. Hate me now, kill me later.

It took us two days to get to Yosemite, we slept the first night in Arroyo Grande, and the second night in Marina, near Monterey, CA. Of course we took plenty of pictures on the way, with many stops and relaxing breaks.

Morro Bay, California, an historic fishing village, is located on the Central Coast midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. It’s most distinctive and recognizable landmark is the famous Morro Rock.

In 1542, Portuguese explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo named Morro Bay’s magnificent landmark “El Morro” (Spanish for crown shaped hill). 

Morro Rock is also sometimes called the 
Gibraltar of the Pacific” .

Fooling around is one of our specialties, you'll see even more later...

Morro Rock is the last of a line of long-extinct volcanoes formed about 23 million years ago, which include nine peaks ranging from San Luis Obispo to Morro Bay. These peaks are named the Nine Sisters because they are all in a row, and in close proximity.

In the way, we stopped to eat at Moonstone Beach, where we were surprised by a magnificent residential area we entered by mistake in our way to the beach. It was so quiet and relaxing, we forgot about how hungry we were.


Then, to our huge surprise, we found on the beach the sea lions, and we spent hours watching and photographing them.

Then, back on the road again. To see more see lions, surfers, kites, waterfalls and beaches. 

See you later, and meanwhile be happy, my friends. Life is short, but it has plenty of goodies in her pockets.
