The rites of October, for many of us, include the purchasing of hefty bags of miniature candy bars, and the carving of seed-packed pumpkins, and running to the store for more make-up on Halloween morning. But along the Central Coast, there's a special celebration, one that's a bit splashy, and it has become a seasonal staple of the area over the last few years. More than that? It raises funds for a local food bank, making it truly magical at heart.
It's the Morro Bay Witch Paddle, an on-the-water happening that invites witches, wizards, and anyone feeling the spirit of the happy occasion to take to the waves with a paddle in hand and a conical hat on their head (or other ensorcelled accessories or spirited clothing items). Take a look now at the scene this past Saturday, which found dozens of wonderful witches enjoying a beautiful fall day on the bay.
