WooHoo….2 new “Followers” today. I appreciate that you give my Blog about RV living your time and attention. So a big THANK YOU today to:
It was cooler here today along the Central Coast of California. A little bit at least. We stay right at the beach here in Pismo Beach in a part of the town that is lower than other places in town. We have some hills to the East and North of us and, actually, some to the South of us too. It gets much hotter up there. By the same token, in January when we are here, it can be cold and foggy at the beach and when we drive a short distance up to the Walmart or to Albertson’s, it will be sunny and bright and about 10 degrees warmer. It goes both ways.
I was interested in a comment left by “Anonymous” who apparently lives nearby. They were commenting on my remarks from yesterday’s post about the intense heat in this area and also down in Los Angeles. They wrote: “Two miles away from you, it was 110, regardless of what the newspaper reported. IT was darned hot. Stay cool by the beach today. Go to Costco early ‘cuz it’s going to be hotter there than where you are.”
I figure this Anonymous probably lived up in one of the hilly areas around here in Pismo or Arroyo Grande, and it was really, really hot where they lived. They probably felt a change in the weather today, but it was still pretty warm up there today.
After breakfast at McDonald’s we did drive right up to the Costco in San Luis Obispo. We had our usual breakfast of English muffins and coffee. When we got here a couple of weeks ago, the manager here at McD’s remembered us from last winter and welcomed us back. How nice they are here!
After we ate and read the paper, we were on our way to Costco. In comments left yesterday Rick and Wayne and Roberta wrote that we would not get out of Costco for under $100. Were they correct? We had several items on our list and found everything except Green Tea Bags.
We would have been under except I remembered while we were there that I needed a bottle of vanilla. That was priced at $6.79 so it put us over the $100 mark. I bought 6 lbs. of fresh salmon, which was the main thing I wanted to get on this trip. I can cut it into serving sized portions and freeze it. So, Rick along with Wayne and Roberta win the prize for guessing correctly. Oops! I don’t have a prize to give you except to say…thanks for reading my blog and leaving fun comments.
We took an early walk on the beach a couple of days ago and we saw a young woman who seemed to be practicing her surfing techniques. Maybe she is a newbie, I couldn’t say for certain. She kept going back out to catch another wave or two. She wasn’t quick to give up.
If you are reading this blog and you live in some of the super-hot weather areas, I truly hope the high temperatures will break for you soon. Until then, try to stay out of the direct sun and drink a lot of water!
Until next time…..so long for now!
