We are spending our long weekend in San Luis Obipso and are having a wonderful time. Chris's parents are off in Wales playing so we are down here with 'just the kids', Chris's brother Matt and his lovely girlfriend M, having a grand time. We all piled in the car yesterday and headed out for a light walk and some time at the tide pools in Montana De Oro out near Los Osos. We picked a favorite trail that meanders along the cliffs for a while with a detour down to a beach with a great bank of tide pools. The tide was out and we had a great time balancing on the rocks, finding sea creatures, acting goofy, and having time to catch up. On the walk out we also saw a group of seals swimming into the cove and a pod of whales spouting blasts of water into the air. What a perfect day at the beach.
