Butterfly Grove Groove

(Groove: a fixed routine, an enjoyable time or experience.)

We took a drive south to Pismo Beach to visit the Monarch Butterflies that overwinter here from October through February.  It was a cold overcast day and not much butterfly flitting going on.  The hardy docents thought there were about 20,000 butterflies clustered on the eucalyptus branches.  Beautiful place to spend the winter.  Smart insects.
