I can’t tell you how many times we’ve driven by the “big turnout” on Highway 46 West (I guess it’s a “Vista Point”), and most of you probably know the one I’m talking about. It’s the one where you overlook all the rolling hills and look down on to Cayucos, Morro Bay, and most impressively Morro Rock. This is a top ten view in Paso Robles on a clear day without question.
So here’s the deal…spur of the moment this past Sunday, rather than sit around at home and write like we do on so many Sunday afternoons, we decided to head over to that Vista Point with a picnic and our work materials to watch the sun set.
What to Do on 46 West Vista Point?
The view was amazing even with some foggy clouds in the sky but we did miss the sunset due to a little bit of marine layer. It was still super cool to hang out there for a couple hours enjoying the Central Coast. Annie busted out her laptop and did some writing while I went old school and used pen and paper…crazy huh? We even got to do some people watching while eating our picnic because so many people stop at this turnout for the photo op…and let me tell you there are some strange people out there, but I’m sure you knew that already!
This is the entire point to our 50 Adventures in 2012, get out of the house and go do something different…something you haven’t done before. If you’ve never danced in the rain or hiked that trail you always drive by then put it on the list. Is this a bucket list…???Maybe; we just view it as a take-advantage-of-being-alive-by-getting-out-there-and-living-out-loud list!
So what are you waiting for? An invitation? It’s not going to come, this is about you creating and living your adventure!!
