Hot Or Not, And Some Scrubbing

When we took our walk this morning at 6:45 it was so warm we just wore T-shirt and shorts and left the jackets at home.  Fortunately, the heat here at the beach didn’t build much higher.  Up by the outlet mall and McDonald’s it gets a lot hotter since they are up the hill and further from the water.  At least it wasn’t as hot as down in Los Angeles today, though.  Did you all see the news?

Today at noon it was the hottest temperature ever recorded in downtown L.A.  It was 113F which is amazing.  That’s Palm Springs summer type heat and not Los Angeles September heat.  We never saw heat like that when we lived down in that area, thank goodness.  Oh, it was soooooo much cooler up here today!

                                            Cool ocean breezes for us today.DSCF6826 

                                       Oh! That water was cold but there were still people swimming.DSCF6848 

Today was Annie’s bath day, except she really has to have a shower since we don’t have a bathtub.  She used to try to run and escape when we said it was bath time.  Now after we remove her “necklace” as Zoey called it, she goes right into the bathroom and stands there waiting for Bruce to come in. 

                                             Maybe like people, she feels refreshed after a scrubbing.DSCF6856-1

While I worked on my photo album project, I could see the man behind us doing some repairs.  It seemed he had some issues with his large awning since he had the thing taken apart for a while.  He had tools spread out on a table.  It was nice just watching from inside our RV.  He seemed to do a good job of the repair work.

                                            I zoomed in on him with my camera to catch the action.DSCF6859

After he finished the awning work he gave his 5er and the awning a really good scrubbing.  He scrubbed the outside and the underside of his awning.  It looked good when he was done.

                                            We didn’t see anybody else working so hard today.DSCF6862

It was just another laid-back day for us in Pismo Beach.  We were expecting some new friends to check-in yesterday and we saw their MH parked a couple of rows from us this afternoon.  We met Ted and Claire last January here in Pismo Coast Village at the shareholder’s cocktail party before the annual meeting.  We’ve kept in touch the past few months by e-mail.  As we walked Annie by their MH today, Claire came out to greet us and we talked for quite a while.  We’ll probably see them again while we are both here enjoying some good times!

Tomorrow we’ll be off to San Luis Obispo on a shopping trip to Costco.  I need to get a few groceries and some fresh salmon.   Sometimes these things just have to be done.  That’s it for today.

Until next time…..so long for now!

I'm glad for you that you have the cool breezes off the ocean. Today LA sounds more like Phoenix, doesn't it. It reached 100 here, and is going to 102 tomorrow, so I will be whining, I'm sure!

fun watching the neighbours work!!

If it was 113F in Los Angeles, I wonder what it was in Palm Springs? Those ocean waves sure looked pretty refreshing and I'll bet the breeze was nice too.

Enjoy your trip to Costco tomorrow - bet you don't get out for under $100!

the only thing better than having to buy fresh salmon would be catching it...

thanks for "missing me"! hopefully i can be more regular!

Wonderful new header pic! As soon as Gatorgirls'necklace" comes off, she knows that it is bathtime, and she would rather be doing anything else than the dreaded shower/bath! LOL

The beach is the place to be when it's hot! We're having warm weather this week, too, after a refreshing rain yesterday. It's been very humid lately so it feels even warmer.

It was warm here in Saratoga today too, upper 90's. Going to be hot again tomorrow but within a few days it will be down to the upper 70's for the daytime. Much better weather to be managing a Pumpkin Patch.

How great that campground allows Rig washing. So many don't. Speaking of which, our truck sure could use a bath. Won't be as easy giving one to it nor nearly as much fun as you must have with Annie.

I love your header picture.

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.

You are lucky you are staying at the beach with the cooler breezes it was 101 here in Sonoma County.

Enjoy your trip to Costco I'm with Rick you won't get out for less than $100,

Thanks for the splendide number and webpage. There's always been free laundry when I'm at a refuge, so I haven't worried about it too much. After this round of repairs, maybe I'll settle down enough to look into it. :)

What a nice walk by a cool ocean! And Annie likes her baths! What a good pup!

Levonne said...

Margie, It was hot in Big Sur yesterday too. The campers complained this morning after a hot night in their tents last night. Oh well...this heat will move through soon, I hope! Have fun at Costco and in SLO. See ya,

Dennis and Donna said...
