The Rock is absolutely incredible. You
have to get up close to the rock in order to fully appreciate its size
Birds circling, waves crashing, surfers
surfing and a cool breeze in your face is what you get when you
visit the rock. It is spectacular.
The first time I visited the rock I couldn't
believe my eyes. This
gigantic bolder bulging up out
of the water sparked my imagination. It looked like a space
ship. It seemed like a mistake. Why did this rock
just pop up next to land. I had lived on the Gulf Coast of
Mississippi but I had never seen anything so majestic.
My wife took took me to the parking area next
to the rock and I was
astounded at the amount of sea gulls on and around this big old
rock. I mean to tell you, I had never in my life seen so many sea
When you visit the Bay make sure to
take time to drive out
to the rock. The beach is beautiful, the birds
fascinating and the rock is unbelievable.
Fishing boats nestled against the pier of the embarcadero remind me of days past when the bay was a thriving fishing village.
Unique little shops with unique products, sail boats, fishing rigs and seals line the beautiful bay.
The smell of salt air and fresh fish
mingled with the scent of cooking food makes the bay different and
wonderful to visit.
When visiting this area you can't help but notice the stacks. Maybe the stacks were the mistake.
If you have never been on a fishing trip in the Pacific now is the time. You can charter a boat and fish till your nets are full.
You can go whale watching or just rent a kayak and take a slow ride through the bay. Regardless of what you choose to do in Morro Bay you will have the time of your life.
One of the best places in Morro Bay to charter a fishing boat or go whale watching is Verg's Landing. For more information click on this link Verg's Landing.
My comment when
seeing the stacks,"what in the world are those?" They just didn't
fit into the landscape. How weird to put three big poles up in
the middle of paradise.
