The ‘Cotton Ball Quilt Shop’ is located on main street in stunning Morro Bay, a little North of Pismo Beach. I have been here before and have always enjoyed a quick little tour while hubby keeps himself busy down at ‘The Rock’!
The staff really was friendly…honest! And the shop was beautifully displayed….
Lots of eye candy…but for the modern quilter…darn!
Seems there is a new owner and so the shop has downsized a bit (no upstairs displays) and more of a modern flavour.
There is still a wee small SALES ROOM in back and in it I found this framed small quilt which was listed for half price. The sales lady said it was left over from the ‘old’ shop and she knew the owner would sell it for much less…she just didn’t know for how much less…and could I come back next week…so you guessed it. There was no deal to be made!
I ended up coming out with empty hands…which was just as well! I wanted to prove to hubby that I really COULD go into a shop and come out without purchasing anything!! :o)))
So off we went down the road, past the Hearst Castle, to the Sea Lion beach…. Hundreds of young sea lions come up out of the water and just lie there! No they aren’t sick or dead…once or twice a year they do this…come up onto the beach to rest and molt. They just lay there and once in awhile flip sand over themselves. Quite a sight for sure! They are shedding their fur(hair)…it’s natures way of providing them with a new and better coat!
We toured several small coastal towns before heading back to Pismo Beach where we, of course, walked the beach once again! We had a wonderful day…until just before dinner the fog rolled in! But even that was fun…we got to turn on our fireplace…yes, we were snug and warm in our house on wheels…
Hey…I can hear RAIN on the ROOF!! It’s been awhile since I have heard THAT!! LOVE that sound! Now I am really getting homesick!! haha
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
