My family would make a regular trip to Morro Bay, which is in Central California. We would visit all the beaches, including one in Montana De Oro. It’s a beach framed by rocky hills, and the sea is pretty rough because of all the rocks just offshore. There was this cave out in the water — Gary Robertshaw has a great photo of what turned out to be three caves. I could only see the one from the beach.
Every time we went out there, I looked at that cave. I wanted to explore it. What would I find? Bats? Buried Treasure? Oooh — a mermaid! Of course, it was too dangerous to get to it because of the sea crashing around it, but it was fun thinking about the possibilities.
What did you want to explore?
