Located on the Embarcadero, Tognazzini’s restaurant is a Morro Bay landmark.

Three buildings in total are to be demolished including the Morro Bay Landing, the Paddleboard & Kayak shop and Captain Stews.

City officials have approved a 5,800 square foot building, parking area and public space to replace the three buildings. The new structure is slated to house the Morro Bay Landing, an oyster company and a restaurant.

The Morro Bay Historical Society would like to move the Dockside 3 building to use as the city’s first historical society building and a visitor center. The group needs about $30,000 by Oct. 15 to fund its plan.

Pismo. Check.

Avila. Check.

Morro Bay. Check.

Cayucos: you’re in the crosshairs.

This is so sad. Little by little, Morro Bay is losing it’s unique charm. 

YAY! More T-shirt shops!

This is sad. Like so many coastal harbors, the whole charm that draws people to such a community gets torn down and replaced in the name of tourism, ultimately making it no different than any other crappy tourist trap other than it happens to be near some water.

The central coast is clearly circling California’s toilet bowl. Soon to be on it’s way into the sewer system.

perhaps the new structure will be charming
