Pismo Beach

Greetings from the beach! We headed 250 or so miles south yesterday and landed at the Pismo Coast Village RV Resort in the quaint central coast town of Pismo Beach.  We're here for some much deserved weekday R&R. And, it looks like Mother Nature is treating us to a few glorious days by the sea.
Our morning started cool and foggy. Here are Bullwinkle and Rocky, just 250 yards from the water (depending on the tide, of course.)

Here's how things looked this morning from just over the dune at the end of our street. This is where Pismo Creek meets the Pacific.  (Yes, there really is an ocean out there!)

The morning after a travel day is a special time to rest and relax. With a cool, foggy start to the day, P was content to welcome our girl kitty to hang out in his lap.

Here's a close-up.  Now, that's one happy kitty!

By noon the fog cleared and we headed out after lunch to explore the park and Pismo Beach. This is view of Pismo Creek as it heads to the Pacific. Our park is on the left.

Pismo Coast Village is a 400-site park in an ideal location. With full hookups, a general store, laundromat, community room and a beach, we have everything we need!

The cats have especially enjoyed keeping an eye on the ducks who pass through our campsite.

The center of Pismo is just a couple of blocks away. We poked our heads in a few shops and strolled the length of the Pismo Pier. There's a cache here somewhere. We'll be back soon to find it!

This guy is enjoying his perch on the pier.  Our RV park is on the shore in the background. (But, you can't see it.)

This shot pretty much sums up our day at the beach: Perfect.

P and M -- Enjoy your time at Pismo. Such a great place to visit and relax. The pics you shot are wonderful. I especially like the trees in the fog. I am envious....
