Bringing Dory Home to Morro Bay

Dory’s story…..

Dory has been brought home to Morro Bay, from Cambria, by Morro Bay BEAUTIFUL and several businesses in Morro Bay, where she will be making an appearance for a month at a time.

Ellen DeGeneres voices Dory in the movies, “Finding Nemo” and the sequel “Finding Dory.”

In the Dory movie, the little royal blue tang fish with bad short-term memory (who is lost), remembers that her family once lived at “the Jewel of Morro Bay” across the ocean in California. The movie then chronicles the adventures of Dory and friends to find her family and work her way home to Morro Bay.

The sculpture’s title is, “Do You Know the Way to Morro Bay?” and was created by Tish Rogers for the Scarecrow Festival in Cambria.

Dory’s future whereabouts in town will be tracked on the Morro Bay Beautiful website, see: morrobaybeautiful.org.

Will Dory get a permanent home?   We will see.   Right now she will just be happy to be home in Morro Bay.

These are the businesses that helped bring Dory home and where she will be for the next several months:

Dorn’s Restaurant – will have Dory all of November 2017

Carla’s Country Kitchen – will have her all of December 2017

INN at Morro Bay – January 2018

456 Embarcadero Inn & Suites - all February 2018

Bayfront Inn - all March 2018
