It is hard not to get excited about seeing a Cow-Bear!
Welcome to a little place on the central California coast called Los Osos.
We stayed here in early February at The Back Bay Inn (www.backbayinn.com)
for a short, but lovely and relaxing visit.
Our cabana room was dog-friendly with a little patio and super-easy access to everything.
I loved the labyrinth on the premises!
Great food nearby too - Back Bay Inn Cafe for breakfast and Noi & Doi's Thai for dinner.
It was rainy but we were able to get out and about a bit throughout the week.
Over to Morro Bay to catch a glimpse of Morro Rock.
And the sailboats lining the bay.
We caught up with Marilyn Moon-Roe in San Luis Obispo.
Her friend, Father Moonipero Serra was churning butter near the Mission in San Luis Obispo.
I never miss a chance to spot a cemetery and this one really spoke to me...
But my favorite part of the trip was wandering in the Butterfly Grove right near our inn.
We noticed the little bit of fluttering straight into the sky.
Little Monarchs flitting all around us in the trees - so quietly.
And then we saw bundles of them up in the treetops!!
Seriously, It doesn't get any better than this....
