The Morro Bay Kite Festival is held the last weekend of April so we decided to check it out. Here is our campsite with Morro Rock in the distance.

On our way to the festival we stopped and had lunch at Giovanni’s Fish Market. The clam chowder there has won the harbor clam chowder contest a number of years in a row and we were really looking forward to it. When we got there a long line awaited us which really got our juices going. Outside there was a bbq oyster kiosk and they offered a free sample and we just had to have one and then more because they were sooooo good. Jo kept our place in line and Bob went and got the oysters. We just knew we were really going to get some good chowder.

We had company in the line, seals on the rocks at the waterfront. Here is a momma and her baby on the rocks.

More seals to keep them and us company.

By this time we ordered and got a clam chowder each and split a halibut tostada order of two small tostadas. This is one time where anticipation must have killed reality. The clam chowder was watered down, our least favorite clam chowder in a long time. The halibut on the tostada was tough, the shell and everything else was just ok.

Being less than satisfied we headed towards Morro Rock
