Drove over and spent about one hour taking bird photos on the beach. Beautiful views of beach and harbor and the rock is amazing. If in Morro Bay, this is a must do.

A great landmark for Morro Bay! At first we didn't like the stacks at the power plant but got used to it. I bet the locals would like the company to dismantle this eyesore.
