Instead of going somewhere far away or trying to tackle tons of different sights to see, we decided to really relax over break and just set up and chill at Pismo. It was AWESOME! 6 days and 5 nights of relaxation…
We couldn’t get into PCV so we stayed at Pismo Sands. It’s in Oceano, so it’s a drive to Pismo and all the usual things we do, but it was nice because it was calmer, more spacious, less busy, and most importantly, they have a HEATED pool and jacuzzi! We swam and relaxed in the pool and jacuzzi at least once a day, but some days as much as 3 times! We were in site 52 and it was a great site, a pull through near the pool. They also have a great pirate ship playground.
Most days we went to the beach and played for a while. James and Kyle would boogie board and the littles would play a bit in the water and then mainly in the sand. One day we visited our friends Joe and Jen Martin at PCV and we let all the kids play in the Pismo creek and in the ocean there.
We saw a dead otter on the beach that had several puncture wounds and its face damaged a lot. A state employee came and got it and she said there are tons of great whites right now in the water and otters do get killed by them sometimes.
Every time I come to Pismo I call my high school French teacher, Mme Marsh and she came over and ate dinner with us and hung out by the fire. She loved the magic fire when we added the color packets. It’s always great to see her.
We ate out a few times. We are a family portion of fish and chips at the Quarterhouse. We ate froyo a few times and we loved this place called Surfside donuts too. We also ate some awesome breakfast burritos at the Orange Cat cafe but they only take cash so u have to be prepared. Also we had to have pizza at Klondikes pizza in Arroyo Grande.
We also visited 2 used bookstores to buy the boys some books to keep them entertained in case it rained. Nan’s bookstore was great and she even had a cat we made friends with. A to Z books was too pricy and we didn’t buy much there.
