Gypsy Journal: A day on the bay

From the bloggers at The Gypsy Journal:

Almost 18 years ago, Terry and I honeymooned in Morro Bay, Calif., and fell in love with the charming small town on California’s Central Coast. So on our trip south from Oregon we built time into our schedule for another visit.

The town takes its name from 581 foot tall Morro Rock, the imposing monolith that stands guard at the entrance to the bay. The rock is a volcanic plug millions of years old, and today it is a bird sanctuary and home to a number of peregrine falcons.

This is going to be the cover of the first book of a new RV-based mystery series I’m planning. The boat has an interesting history. It was built in Russia and brought to San Francisco for a big race, but right after it arrived the U.S. and the Soviets got in a pissing match, so they pulled out and abandoned the boat. The U.S. government seized it, sold it at auction, and the new owner converted it to live aboard full time.
