Morro Bay
  Covid outbreak the popular City Wide Garage Sale is returning
on Saturday May 14 and Sunday May 15 presented by Morro Bay
Beautiful. The sale is from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. each day in multiple locations around town.
Downtown stroll around
Part of your walk can have you stopping by for the many flavors
of ice cream or yogurt available in the old town sector. If you visit on a Saturday afternoon you can shop for locally grown
produce, craft
items, and kettle
corn at the farmer’s
market held from
2:30-5 p.m. If books
are your passion
you can overdose at
Coalesce Bookstore
and Garden Chapel,
the best used book-
stores anywhere.
There are a couple
of coffee houses
there too where you
can sip your brew at a table outside on the sidewalk and watch the world pass by.
Once you’ve seen the springtime flowers in the planters that Morro Bay in Bloom have all over the downtown area, you might want
to purchase some plants of your own. Visit with the fairy garden at the back of Beads by the Bay. They
specialize in succulents of all variet- ies, air plants, and you can purchase tiny miniatures to create your very own fairy garden.
A walk around downtown Morro Bay might even have you taking in the latest picture show at the Bay Theater, getting your palm read by a local psychic, or enjoying a vegan meal at Shine Café.
Discoveries while walking Fido
Walking the dog is a popular (and necessary) exercise enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Most shops are Fido friendly and for quiet walks it’s best to veer off the main avenues onto the residential
side streets. You might discover two little treasures if you do: the little free libraries on Anchor and Main and the free little art gallery on Monterey near Anchor.
No doubt about it, it’s time for a spring walkabout in Morro Bay.
