10th Annual Autumn Cayucos Gem & Mineral Show - Day Three

Today wrapped up the San Luis Obispo Gem & Mineral Club's 10th Annual Autumn Cayucos Gem & Mineral Show at the Cayucos Vet's Hall. Due to Diana March Enscoe showing up at the crack of dawn this morning after doing a one-day event in Pasadena, CA, yesterday I had to be at the venue before dawn to assist she and her husband Max get settled into their booth. Their booth space was Leslie Nelson's Raea Jewelry booth space yesterday. Leslie used it for just the day Saturday with the full knowledge she would have to move to a second spot at the end of the day which she did with help from our club members.

Shortly after arriving and taking care of that bit of show business I walked down to the end of the Cayucos Pier which is next door to the show venue. I did so in order that I might capture some images of the dawn twilight and tranquility. The following images were taken throughout the day in the order they are shown. The first part of this photo set was taken right at dawn this morning. The other outdoor photos were taken after the coastal stratus clouds burned off and the day perfectly demonstrated why October is the best month to come visit the Central Coast of California.
