Morro Bay

After a fun filled weekend with family in Carpinteria, home of one of the best beaches in California, we decided to take a lil detour on our way home and stop in Morro Bay.

The weather was cool and overcast, great change up from the super sunny days at the beach and fierce heat we would be heading back to.  Our first stop was a stroll along the Waterfront Embarcadero in search for Giovanni's Fish Market & Galley.  Very casual with outdoor seating which we enjoyed but had to be on guard for all the hungry seagulls ready to attack our fresh halibut sandwich.

 It was good, but just didn't satisfy our taste-buds, so we decided to keep walking and look for another place to check out...Tognazzin's Dockside Restaurant for a quick cocktail and some excellent clam chowder!

Then on to Stax Wine Bar where you can find a variety of local wines and fabulous eats.  We decided on the crostini ala portobello, just heavenly!  Some of my favorite things ever...mushrooms, parmigiano-reggiano and pesto anxious to try and make it at home.
