I offered her a choice, straight through on 101 south with more time to kick back at Morro Bay or take the high/slow road through Big Sur with a late lunch in Cambria.
She chose well.
We dawdled down the coast stopping often. I took pictures I had taken before. We arrived (quite relaxed) in Morro Bay right at sunset.
We enjoyed a long bike ride Saturday exploring this quiet coastal town. We loafed in the general area for a couple of days avoiding necessary Thanksgiving prep errands.
Back home recharged and ready to do battle with the beast.
