Two young girls smile and jog along Morro Strand State Beach, Morro Bay, CA 29 Sept. 2008. - Ethnic Diversity depicted. Michael "Mike" L. Baird, Canon 1D Mark III 600mm IS with polarizer, on tripod. We are fortunate that for the most part, Morro Strand is populated with well-behaved family-oriented and nature-oriented folks. It is always such a joy and supreme privilege to be able to walk the Strand and share this narrow strip of interface of the land with the ocean, with birds, dolphins, sea otters, and friendly smiles and warm greetings from total strangers commenting on what a grand day it is.
