The pup's and I joined my two of my sisters on a another ROAD TRIP! We went to Los Osos to visit my other sister. Four of the Mooney sister's together all at the same time to enjoy each other's company, it really was a lovely visit. I am so Thankful for my family.
BELOW IS SOME OF WHAT WIKIPEDIA HAS TO SAY ABOUT LOS OSOS:
Los Osos is located at 35°19'0" North, 120°50'8" West (35.316795, -120.835605). Native American Chumash were the first inhabitants of the local area. These peoples relied partially on the harvesting of fish and shellfish (e.g. Macoma nasuta) from Morro Bay. There is a large Chumash archaeological site on a stabilized sand dune in Los Osos dating to at least as early as 1200 AD. Cabrillo first encountered the Chumash in the year 1542.
On September 7 – 8, 1769, the Portolà expedition traveled through the San Luis Obispo area on his way to rediscover the Bay of Monterey. Finding an abundance of bears in the area, his diarist, Padre Juan Crespi, O.F.M., recorded that the name given the area by his soldiers was "Los Osos". The fact is that it's a broad, flat valley and the community wisely kept only the simplified "Los Osos".
My sisters and I drove 2 hours north Of Port Hueneme to arrive at my sister Melissa's house in Los Osos. I did not see any REAL bears when I was visiting but I did see many lovely bear statues and carvings.
My sister has lived in Los Osos for over 20 years, she has a lovely little house and loves her life there. Below is the view from right up the hill from her house!

We ate at the Bayside Cafe. I highly recommend the Tri-Tip Tostada, it was one of the best tostadas I have ever had!
