Morro Bay is often cold & dreary, but there is an oasis -- a tropical paradise -- within town. Year-round it is a balmy 85 degrees, the air is scented with hundreds of orchids, and the sound of a waterfall tickles your ears. To find it, you can Google "orchids Morro Bay" or simply find the Post Office in town and look across the street.
Once there, pass through the double glass doors, visit the koi pond, then exit through the paned glass door.
Once outdoors, walk past the cymbidiums, and enter the greenhouse. Watch your step! The floor in there is uneven! Pass the vandas, and turn left just before the phalaenopsis. Walk around the large table in the middle of the room (past more phalaenopsis) until you see the psycopsis on your right, and epidendrum behind them. Walk toward the NNW corner of the room, where the table suddenly has no top, and look down. In the far corner is a green plastic flower pot containing a cattleya stamp.

The employees are aware of this letterbox, so feel free to sit down at the picnic table outside, or the bistro table inside to stamp in. Be sure to re-hide the box as you found it!
