Things We See Around The Beach And RV Park

Somehow I missed a new “Follower” in recent weeks.  I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome Shabana Shaheen and say THANK YOU for looking in on my blog about our RV lifestyle.  I appreciate it.

We had a relaxing afternoon after going up to San Luis Obispo to church this morning.  I’ve been working on Zoey’s 4th photo album so I spent a few hours with that.  Bruce watched several NFL games all at the same time by bouncing from channel to channel.  That gives me a headache.  We were glad to see the Seattle Seahawks won their game.  Our son-in-law, Darin, has season tickets and was at the game today. 

We’ve been out and about through the RV park and down to the beach several times and I always take my camera.  We thought this first photo was pretty funny.  We have never seen anything like this at any park or campground we’ve ever been to.  The one camper didn’t want to look at his next-door neighbor’s utility hook-ups so he had a unique way to block his view.

                                        A little tole painted screen hides the view.  Classy! (I guess)DSCF6811 

We sometimes see interesting opportunities for photos on our early morning walks.  No woodsy paths or tree lined park because we’re in town.  So you look for opportunities where you can find them.  We don’t usually get a good sunrise here in Pismo.  The sun just pops up over the hills to the east of us in a big bright ball.  I did see a good shadowy outline of some trees by a house.

                                            Typical trees here in California….the palm tree.DSCF6828

             Sometimes if there are clouds we get a better sunset view.  Could be better with this one.DSCF6761

We took a long walk on the beach later this afternoon and there were a lot of people swimming.  It was a bit breezy but very sunny.  As we walked back up to the gate for the RV park, we saw this couple enjoying the beach today…maybe.

Here’s one I know you will all jump on.  We saw a house for sale.  It is a large home with potential for 2 separate living areas.  It has 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, office and den.  It is right near the steps that lead to the beach.  It has a roof deck with views of the ocean.  The price was recently reduced.  Go for it!

                           Price was:  $2,590,000.00 and now is bargain priced at only $1,950,000.00.DSCF6831

Our fulltime RV journey doesn’t always take us to exciting places. I know we don’t always see exciting things where we “live,” but this lifestyle is exciting to us just because we enjoy it.  We travel around so that we can experience living in different towns.  Sometimes we act as tourists and sometimes we just live.

We enjoyed our weekend just living our RV life.  I hope all of you enjoyed your weekends doing whatever it was you wanted to do.  Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Until next time……so long for now!

You have a knack of turning something so ordinary into a very charming blog.

Hope you have a great week too!

Carol K said...

Ditto to what Kimberly and Jerry said! I like all your pictures, but the closeup of the sand patterns was superb!

Rick and Paulette said...

Heck, where do I start? At the beginning, I guess:

That folding screen sure beats looking at a sewer hose;

the couple on the beach must be at least sunblock level SPF 9000;

the house for $1,950,000 comes to roughly 48,750 nights camping at Pismo Village Beach Resort, or 134 years @ 365 years a day, so I'll have to pass on that house;

What happened to the folks who were sitting in those beach chairs?

Nice pics, great blog!

Glad you had a great weekend. It's not about seeing grandiose things, it about simply being and enjoying. I liked your pics especially the one of the sand pattern.
Take care and be safe.
By the way, we'll pass on the house.

Jerry and Suzy said...

We so admire that you two guys are out doing something, anything, with your time. Somehow we have become very housebound by -- by what? I don't even know. We will shake ourselves loose soon, I hope. Thanks for sharing, and yes, the sand ripples made a great shot!

Wayne and Roberta said...

First of all I agree with everyone's statements above. We have been in some sites that I really wished I had a screen or something to hide the sewer pipes that are sitting right at my table that I'm trying to eat at.

Property values sure are expensive in that area certainly not affordable for us.

Great pictures of the beach!

I love this paragraph. Well said!

Great pictures Margie. Love the ripples in the sand. No thanks on the house, but it is beautiful.

Dennis and Donna said...

I especially loved the photo of the 2 empty beach chairs, with shoes left there ...and the waves in the background..It said a thousand words in that one photo...

Nancy Hurley said...

Great post,Margie. It's so true about just living the lifestyle, not always with some kind of agenda. This is so similar to a post I have been digesting in my head lately. You've given me a little push to get mine written. Liked your beautiful photos of the beach activities, especially the couple in their sweats.

We only stayed once in a park where the sewer pipe was about 20 inches from our picnic table...ewwwwwww and the table was not moveable either. We sure didn't eat at the table!

Loved the pic of the beach chairs!
