Where I stayed
Santa Margarita Lake state campground
I met Dave over at the boat ramp to pick him up a couple of hours later
Then we decided to eat lunch at the beach, but first we stopped again at tackle warehouse because that fish Dave caught broke his pole in three places!!! We were set on going to this seafood place overlooking the ocean called Ocean Grill and was dog friendly, however when we got there they were in the process of changing the menu and were out of all their seafood items…ugghhh. So we walked around until we found a taco place which seemed promising, but was also subpar, however we enjoyed sitting outside and soaking up some sun, and thankfully there was a yogurt shop nearby! We, as usual, got more yogurt than we needed, and the dogs got a doggy yogurt treat! So we had what we call yogurt belly bloat.
I had read in a pamphlet about there being sea lions that live under and around a pier at Avila beach
So you could drive to the end of the pier which was where we found the fish market, but we didn’t end up buying any as it all seemed overpriced and most of it was not local. The bay looked amazing so we decided we’d come back tomorrow to canoe in the bay with the doggies and get a better look at the sea lions.
We decided to spend another night at Santa Margarita Lake and headed back there for the night. We were so full from our late lunch and yogurt that we decided not to cook any dinner and Dave did some night fishing. The campground is mostly empty, but we have some neighbors just over the hill from us. Dave told me he stopped to talk to one of them who he saw had a fishing pole and told them about his fish that got away. They said, “oh, you’re that guy in the canoe!? Everyone on the lake was talking about you today and were all trying to catch that fish!”
Goodnight folks J Sleep tight.
