The Galley Seafood Grill in Morro Bay (17 matches)
Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com
We had a visitor in town and decided to take our special guest to Morro Bay to see the Morro Rock, sea otters, seals and have some lunch at The Galley Seafood Grill & Bar


It's the ideal place to take a visitor because it is right on the bay with views of all of the above: Morro Rock, sea otters, seals and more. We saw people kayaking while we were in our seats inside the restaurant. It's such a special experience. Moreover, their food is spot on with local classics such as clam chowder, fish a...

I wish my family-friendly event list for December isn't so sparse and that there are more things to look forward to in San Luis Obispo (SLO) county but we are under a stay-at-home order here.

We had our very first PSEA camp experience at one of the cabins at Camp Del Monte over the weekend to visit Monterey!

It was such a neat experience and we felt like it was an appropriate place to stay during our 3 night vacation. The cabin had a full kitchen, 1 bedroom, a bathroom and also two twin beds and a futon in the living room. It was a great set up for 6 people and we maximized our space. We're a family of 4 and also invited a couple to stay one night during our weekend. Here are the ...

Ending of Phase 2 Reopening in SLO (2 matches)
Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com
Stating tomorrow, San Luis Obispo County will move into Phase 3 of reopening and today is the last day of phase 2. A lot has happened since my past post during phase 1. 

The kids are done with distance learning now so we have a bit of free time. I've notice a lot of tourists are here on the weekends at Pismo Beach too. Most of them were not wearing masks. I often wonder if they are refusing to wear one or if they just don't have one. See my DIY fabric face mask blog post.

During the week, all o...

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com
I ordered 2 sports bras from Macys.com on June 11, 2020 (over a month ago) and my package has not arrived yet. This is crazy.

I was expecting it to be maybe 2 weeks delayed because of the Covid-19 pandemic but over a month? I tried calling Macy's customer service toll free line separate times on 2 different dates but no one picked up when the automated line transferred me to a customer service representative. No customer service personnel right now guys! They are MIA. I am assuming that their ...

Shelter at Home During Covid 19 Closures (1 match)
Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com
We've just finished Week 2 of sheltering at home and we're starting to have a decent routine down. Surprisingly, my kids have not asked me to take them to the park or anything like that yet. It's also my husband's second week working from home so I think that they're just enjoying being able to spend more time with him, even if it means we're just playing at home.

Only one of my kids is old enough to go to school so I've only had to worry about homeschooling my 6 year old. His kindergarten tea...

Today is Ash Wednesday and I am Episcopalian (1 match)
Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com
Every year, I take Lent more seriously because usually this is the time when I'd grow spiritually and mentally prepare for Easter. Today is Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of Lent, some 40+ days between now until Easter comes. I abstain from meat every Friday starting now until Easter. 

My kids are too little to start fasting and abstaining but to tell you the truth, the abstaining from meat part comes easy to them because they don't like to eat meat anyway! We're Episcopalian and Lent...

The Rooftop at Inn at the Pier Hotel in Pismo Beach (1 match)
Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com
A dear friend from the Bay Area came down and visited me. I wanted to take her to a special place where a successful yuppie like her would appreciate. After some research online, I decided to take her to The Rooftop at Inn at the Pier hotel in Pismo Beach that overlooks the pier and ocean. It was absolutely the right pick!

The entrance to the hotel took a bit of time to figure out because it's on the opposite end of the beach parking lot. However, once we got on the property, I instantly fel...
