Morro Rock And the Seven Sisters
Morro Rock and the seven sisters represent a chain of anciant volcanic plugs. These are not true volcanos but are the neck or throat of anciant volcanos that were last active a little over 20 million years ago. Since that time, the top of the volcanos has eroded away. i had the pleasur of learning all about these amazing rocks or mountain of rocks.
Fondest memory: Morro rock. the #7 buwi out in the bay and the joke one of the professors said on the bus. ' do you think the seagul can spot that quartz rock over there? of course he can a seagul can spot anything!'----Fresno City college Biology Professor. Hanging out with my friend Dillen.
To find out about our beautiful town, the things to do and see, I found a good link with great pictures and ideas. It is: www.pelicannetwork.net/morrobay.htm
Fondest memory: I have been visiting this town once a month for over six years. Now at last I live here full time. When I am away, I miss the fresh air with the scent of the sea, the beautiful sunsets over the ocean and the quiet! I love the birds that visit our yard and the fresh fish found at Giovanni's fish market.
The town of Morro Bay is across from Morro Rock, a mariner's navigational landfall for centuries. The rock is a short walk from the town and is a nice place to view the ocean, walk along the beach, or surf.
Fondest memory: Sitting on a rock and watching a seal come nearer and nearer.
Favorite thing: Because the Northern Pacific current runs along the coastline, the seawater here is pretty cool. This means however also that it is rich in oxygene and so holds an enormous treasure in life. Fields of seagrass float just off the coast, which form the habitat of the o-so-funny sea-otter. Only at places where water runs more freely the waves rise to a level that makes surfing possible. But still ... the water is cold (brrrr).
Favorite thing: Brown pellicans, cormorants and seagulls are waiting for some leftovers of fish on a place on the Embarcadero, where people clean their fish.
