We left Isleton this morning before 8:00 and made our way east on CA 12 to get to I-5 in Lodi. We stopped for diesel and propane at the Flying J and then headed south on the interstate. We used to go all the way down to Pismo Beach by staying over in the Bay Area and going through near Oakland and San Jose but there is just so much traffic there. Plus, when you get on Hwy. 101 south of the Oakland area there are precious few places to pull off the highway and park a large rig for a lunch break or potty walk for Annie.
So we take I-5 now and avoid the Bay Area. Then we go back over to Hwy. 101 via CA 41 at Kettleman City. This route takes us directly over to Hwy. 101 at Paso Robles. From there it is a straight shot down to Pismo Beach.
Soon enough we were on 101….the last leg of this trip. Just south of the turn off to Avila Beach, the road made a turn and we got a full view of the Pacific Ocean. WooHoo, we were almost there. Just another couple of miles and there was the turn off we needed.
We pulled in to our RV park for the next 49 days….Pismo Coast Village RV Resort. There is a lot to say and show here at our “home” for a while, and I’ll do that over the next 49 days. Our check-in was swift and we were assigned to site #143. We had requested #145 but apparently there is somebody already there and they aren’t planning to leave for a while. That’s OK. Our site is still great. I will also do a RV Park Review in a few days.
It feels good to be here and settled in for a while. I’ve got a lot more scrapbook pages to get to for Zoey’s next 2 albums, blogs to write, places to see, things to do, and a lot of rest to catch up on. It will all start tomorrow morning when we head off to our second favorite McDonald’s for English Muffins and coffee! Life is good.
Until next time…..so long for now!
