We plan to return to our location here in Pismo Beach on January 2. Most RVer’s go further South during winter months and that’s good, but this town works for us. Even though we will not be leaving Pismo until November 1, we are already looking forward to returning for a couple of months. We’ll be in Tumwater, Washington for the holidays, a stay of about 7 1/2 weeks.
For those that don’t know exactly where Pismo Beach, California is I’ll tell you that it is on the Central Coast 188 miles North of Los Angeles and 243 miles South of San Francisco. The town’s population is about 9,000 and that gives it a small-town feeling we enjoy.
The beach area can be a bit crowded on weekends, but during the weekdays a lot of the visitor’s go home. In the winter months, the visiting population is even less than now…..and we like that!
Even though this is not prime Snow Bird country, the winter temperatures aren’t bad. And they are sure a lot better than what we’d have up in Tumwater for January. Last winter when we stayed here we had about a week of rain showers, but mostly the weather was cool but dry.
The average Low temperature for January is: 43F
The average High temperature for January is: 65F
You can see some birds here year round, although I don’t know many of the varieties or the names. We did see some of these last night and I think they are Egrets.
No matter what time of year we come here to stay, we can always walk on the beach. We just layer on more clothing in January. Surfers are always out in the water, nothing will hold them back!
We’ve seen a cool weather trend move in the past couple of days, but it is supposed to warm up into the mid 70’s again next week. The Clam Festival is gearing up for October 15 to 17 and the town will be bulging with temporary visitors again. No worry, they’ll go home again after the festival.
Checking out the sunset in the evening is a favorite past time for a lot of us here at the RV park. It’s not like Key West and the huge crowd that gathers for their sunset views, but we do have a fair number of folks that turn out daily to watch the sun dip below the horizon.
It’s always a good day for us in Pismo Beach. I hope all of you enjoyed your own good day!
Until next time…..so long for now!
