Last Day

Today I have a new "Follower" to Welcome to my RV blog.  THANK YOU to Cyndi for joining my group of Followers.  I appreciate your interest in our fulltime RV lifestyle.

Today is our final day staying at the Pismo Coast Village RV Resort in Pismo Beach, California.  We have had a great time living in this little town of Pismo Beach as temporary residents.  In spite of some bad weather days, we still had a good experience being here. 

The beach was great for an early morning walk.
We will be making our way back up to our homebase of Tumwater, Washington, arriving on Friday afternoon.  We have an appointment on Friday in Woodland, WA to get 2 new blinds installed on the large windows by the dining table.  That shouldn't take long and then we can finish the trip up to Tumwater.  I called our regular RV park in Tumwater to notify the manager that we will be arriving and staying thru March.  Not the whole month, but close enough.

The beautiful rocky coast in Shell Beach was a good spot for watching the waves crashing.
There were a few rain showers this afternoon here in Pismo.  We've had a lot of those lately.  I checked the weather reports for Tumwater and rain showers are predicted there for the next 8 to 10 days.  Normal for February and March.  Our granddaughter, Zoey, will be celebrating her 5th birthday on March 7th and we wouldn't miss that for the world.  In addition, we have scheduled doctor visits and dentist visits for March.  We plan our routine exams for March and September which are the months the girls celebrate birthdays.  Works great that way.

A small dinghy was bobbing in the water by the Harford Pier.
Today was our last morning stop at McDonald's before heading out.  We met a very nice local couple and had a great chat.  They appeared to be in their mid 70's, and were still enjoying some travels in their 5th wheel and truck.  We had a nice visit exchanging thoughts about past RV trips we'd all taken.  About 20 years ago they had also sailed their sailboat to Hawaii.  How great that would be!  We told them we'd be back to Pismo Beach in September and most likely would be seeing them at McDonald's again.  Nice folks.

Hopefully, we'll have an uneventful drive back up to Tumwater.  We plan to go North on Hwy 101 to Hwy 46 east.  Then we'll cut off onto Hwy. 41 to the town of Kettleman City for fuel and to connect with I-5 North to Washington.  We're hoping to Wally-dock or dry camp on the way home.  No firm plans yet, and we'll just go until we decide to stop for the night. 

We enjoyed some great cloud formations here at the beach, including this large pink one.

Until next time.....so long for now!
