The Bakersfield Californian posted a multi-media slide show of my favorite coastal town. Morro Bay is located on the Central Coast of California and is a quite fishing village. When I was just a young girl, my family would vacation at Morro Bay State Park each summer. My mom would fry fish, make fish gravy, and all the trimmings. Riding bikes, exploring the nearby golf course, and roasting marshmallows was my entertainment. The weather was always perfect and, if I sit back and close my eyes for a minute, I can almost smell the Eucalyptus trees. When in Morro Bay, the Galley Seafood Grill and Bar is my favorite place to eat Halibut steak while watching the sunset on the bay. We would always reserve a window table and would usually spot a sea otter or two swimming in the bay. There was also the nose-diving Pelicans. The restaurant was closed for a couple years during an extensive remodeling. It re-opened in February 2008 and now features the attached Anderson Inn with rooms looking over the harbor. I haven't had the chance to visit since the remodel and when I saw the pictures at the link below, I felt a tug to get away for a couple nights. Think I better start saving all my pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters.
