Pismo Beach

We’ve been run a little ragged from running too and fro to see as much as we possibly can. In order to attempt to combat this, we planned to stay in one place for 3 nights, just to give ourselves a bit of a break. So, Cameron found us a 2 bedroom suite at Pismo Beach and we are currently coming into night number two. It is such a relief not to have to pack up the car for a couple of days. We’ve had our complimentary breakfast, done the laundry, wandered down to the beach, eaten in our little kitchenette, had naps and just relaxed a little. We have had a fair bit of catch-up to do on our blog and our sleep and I am very pleased to say it is reviving us a lot. I am very pleasantly typing, sipping my $1.97 bottle of Californian wine and deciding when to go and do some more outlet shopping. Zane is asleep in his own room and Cameron and I are free to watch TV or research our dune buggy ride or whatever. I feel so relaxed (wait up…. that's my third glass)…..

Pismo Beach is located on the Central Coast of California just south of San Louis Obispo. It forms part of a popular vacation area locally known as the Five Cities area, which consists of Pismo Beach, Avila Beach, Shell Beach, Grover Beach and Arroyo Grande. The coastline is an interesting mix of long stretches of sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and picturesque piers.

Just a note on the furnishings here at Pismo Beach… everything is nautical. It’s really quite fun. The lamps are 1930’s style figurines of people in bathing costume with an umbrella behind them holding up the lamp. The decorations are all lighthouse themes and the curtains were blue and white stripes. I want a beach house now.
