A whirlwind beach trip

On Monday, after about a week of planning, we packed up the Toyota Camry and drove to Pismo Beach, anticipating a few hours with the Telians (they were going to camp in their trailer).  Getting ready to go was a lot easier than usual, since all we had to do was pack for one night and we were staying in a hotel!  (Usually, we would spend the better part of the week in a campground with our trailer!)  But since our trailer is getting repaired in a shop in Fresno, we will have to wait until at least mid-January to camp again.

We were only in Pismo about 28 hours, but it was a great 28 hours!  We had a great dinner at Del’s restaurant on Monday night, Delaney and I watched the surfers by the pier early Tuesday morning, we walked on the pier with Dad, went horseback riding with the Telian girls, and played around in the ocean!  Tuesday was clear and warm, and the sunsets were beautiful. 

Our family left Pismo late Tuesday evening.  Hopefully we’ll be back in the New Year and get to spend a week in our trailer at North Beach, just like old times!
