Other Sights From Our Road Trip - Day 2

This farm is in a little valley, on an alternate route to the coast.
I think I could live here and grow flowers (for seed) for a living.

The old library in San Luis Obispo

A little trout stream running through downtown San Luis Obispo

A lot of bird droppings

Bird rock

I'd like to be down there in a kayak.

I almost got a sea otter floating on his back right under this guy, but of course he went under before I could snap it.

For those cold central coast nights


Tomorrow's post will be "Other Sights From Our Road Trip - Day 3"

Ally said...

What makes all of those birds flock to that rock? That wasn't meant to rhyme, but seriously. Very cool!

Again, more terrific pics. Love this part of the country.

Alice in Wonderland said...

Love your photo's! That Library is just great....and that pile of wood reminds me that it's time we got stocked up too!

They Call Me Lady said...

I'm really enjoying the beautiful and colorful scenery of your trip ! Sadly my husbands favorite part would have been the enormous wood pile, we partially heat with a wood stove during the winter, he is obsessed with finding wood =)

They Call Me Lady said...

...also love, love, love your new header photo, the perspective is amazing!

Pat Tillett said...

Nat - Thanks so much!

Ally - Hard telling, there are birds everywhere around there

Talli - It's a very nice place!

Jesse - Thank you my friend!

Marguerite - Thanks, only a couple more days worth of pics

Brian - It was, in spots you can walk along with it. They don't allow any fishing in town...

Sam - Thank you Sam!

Clarissa - I do, especially when I'm near it...

Alex - It was funky. And very old

Costas - Thank you Sir!

Ren - yep! Seriously covered in bird poo!

Cheeseboy - Thanks! It's beautiful!

Chuck said...

It's like this road trip never ends...how great is that!

Marlene said...

Fantastic photos! Thanks for sharing.

WHOA, that is one heckuva load of chopped wood!

Blue Wave 707 said...

Nice shots!

dot said...

Such unusual things in your pictures for someone like me who has never been out there. The first picture looks like a painting.

What has happened to your Kazuko Ikegami story????

Cruella Collett said...

I love the library! Gorgeous! SLO = St. Luis O'Bispo, right? My sister lived there for a while, but I don't think she had a camera. Either that, or she never took any pictures before she had kids. I've never seen any from there, anyway. So good you're here to fill in the blanks ;)

The Retired One said...

That farm scene looks surreal! It was wonderful and I loved all the other photos too!

Sarah said...

If you lived on that farm, I'd want to be your neighbour! It looks like such a beautiful and serene place to live.

Pat Tillett said...

Chuck - I know what you mean! Friday there will be 3 more photos and that's the end. I promise!

Marlene - My pleasure! You are right, that's a lot of wood

dot - I trie to find the unusual whenever we travel. I decided to interview her more and fill in some holes in her early years before I post anything...Sorry!

Cruella - That's pretty close, but it's not Irish...San Luis Obispo. You really do need a camera around there! Thanks for commenting!

Joan - I LOVED that farm...

Sarah - That little valley was so serene...

altadenahiker said...

Where exactly is the farm? I want to crawl inside that picture and never leave.

Pat Tillett said...

altadenahiker - It's on Los Osos Valley Road. It's a local road that runs from 101 to Morro Bay. It allows you to bypass SLO. It's an awesome little farming valley.

tapirgal said...

The kayak place looks inviting. Really cool rocks here. I also love that library; it's really something unique.

Michelle Gregory said...

how ironic. my grandfather used to show his cars at the Classic Car show in Morro Bay. that was my first exposure to the beach and i've loved it ever since.

Pat Tillett said...

tapirgal - sorry I missed this! It was really nice! We try to get up there at least once a year.

Michelle - I just love it up there. I always seem to miss the car show though... someday!
