Eric and I went camping this weekend with a couple of our friends at Montaña de Oro State Park which is outside of Moro Bay. We had a great camp dinner of chili, roasted tomatoes, and blue corn bread. (One of our friends is an excellent camp chef!) The waves were huge though – so we did not go surfing. Instead we looked at tide pools, searched for Pacific cost jade, and watched the huge waves rolling through. The 101 South opened Sunday and we were one of the first cars able to pass through Santa Barbara/Montecito on the way home. So sad to see the destruction – but heartwarming to see the love and hard work of the community pulling together.
