Good Night From Moro Bay

Early evening from the pleasure craft end of the bay

This one was taken a few minutes after the previous one. We sped over to the rock and I took this one. It's the lower right corner of Morro Rock.

Looking across the bay at town

I have more photos of the trip, but I think I've posted enough.  Thanks for looking and commenting!

Oh wow.....the colors in that second photo, especially, are just STUNNING. LOVE these, Pat! You have such a talent for capturing beauty. (I could be really cheesy here and say, "No wonder you caught your beautiful wife"...but I'll behave....sort of!) ;)
