We had a great turnout for our weekend run to Hearst Castle on October 7, 2017. Twenty-four cars and 43 people came along for the fun ride out of Gilroy along CA - Hwy 25 through Hollister, past Pinnacles National Park, along Bitterwater Road before we arrived into King City for a restroom break. From there we had to go on Hwy 101 for a few miles before taking off on CA Hwy 41 down into Morro Bay for lunch. We had the in-coming VP with us - Simon T., your new social media/communication officer - Bayley M. and the following 2018 in-coming directors on this run: Carolyn & John M., Tina & Steve S., Vickie C. & Mick B., Alison & Gordon L., Anita W. & Christoph, and Brian D. & Crystal T.
I'm sure everyone was wondering where the heck I was taking us as we drove through the middle of Morro Bay, into Morro Bay State Park on a dead-end road. I love those little surprises you can find traveling down dead-ends. Most of us had lunch at Bayside Cafe, 10 State Park Road in Morro Bay, Ca, with a few of our group venturing off to a different location for lunch. The food was wonderful at Bayside Cafe and the view was picturesque.

We couldn't end the weekend without a little more fun. I placed a NorCal button among all of the scarecrows in Cambria. The only rule for the game was the 1st to text/send me a picture of themselves with the button were the WINNERS! I don't know if everyone knows this, but we have some hardcore 'gamers' as members. Many of them looking before the morning light of Sunday.
|Congratulations to Phil & Valerie who found the button at 10:49 PM on Saturday night.|
Here are the WINNER! getting their bag of goodies. Yes, they got to keep the bag too! Of course I placed the pin on MINONS. Where else would I have put it? All you had to do was find it FIRST.
Thanks to all of you who made the run!
I had to share this great shot of Matthew's car. Photo ops abound during this trip!
