Piedras Blancas Lighthouse to San Simeon

This was Larry’s last day walking with me before he returns home tomorrow. We’ll be leaving Morro Bay before sunrise to get him to San Luis Obispo for the Amtrak train to Union Station, then I’ll ‘book it’ up to Cambria to catch the bus to my start point in San Simeon. Spotlights This Week:…

SLO County Line to Piedras Blancas Lighthouse

Larry & I had an amazing day. The weather was magnificent, traffic was light, the road was flatter and straighter, and we had some fun wildlife sightings.

Gorda to SLO County Line

Lucia to Gorda

Once again (as happened earlier in this walking cycle), after investing a significant amount of time writing this blog post, it disappeared right before I hit ‘send’! I have to admit, I’m fed up with it. I wanna cry, but here’s another go at it… I’m already 2 days late with this post – but…

Milepost 30 to Lucia

Today the houses were few and far between.  We started out on the wild coast and ended there as well – passing through the tiny town of Lucia about 8 miles in, perched on the side of a cliff.

Milepost 40 to Milepost 30

Once again, my start/stop points didn’t include any towns, so they can only be defined by Monterey County mileposts. Interestingly, today seemed like it was going to be one of the more ‘remote’ days, but in reality there were quite a few houses. Actually, I doubt we ever went more than a half mile without…
