It was a success! We made it to the Pismo Sands RV Park. When we arrived at 9:30 am, our site was still occupied, so we were unable to pull right in. The front office staff was very nice, and explained we could pull out of the park and park on the dirt around the corner as they own the property. That's exactly what we did. After we dropped the trailer off we headed into town for breakfast. The drive was absolutely gorgeous. We found a place on Yelp that had great reviews called the Seaside Cafe. The food was pretty good, but a little on the expensive side for breakfast. Normally I don't complain about spending money on a good meal, but the people who worked there were not very friendly. They ignored us when we walked in for a few minutes. As others began to line up behind us, we didn't know if we were supposed to order at the counter, or wait for a seat and order with the server. We began to talk amongst each other about what to do, when finally the lady came over to say we order at the register and they will bring the food to us. For a business owner, she wasn't very nice or attentive. We will not be back in the future.
The Pismo Sands campground was very clean and nice. We had a premium site with a nice grassy area. Our site was #49. We made the mistake of pulling through our site on the wrong side. Total amateurs! Our neighbors came out and said, "Is there a reason you pulled through on the wrong side?" Marty said, "Well not really, but we are only here for one night." She looked at us like we were stupid. Soon, the neighbors were laughing at us as Marty had already unhooked everything. We thought we were just going to leave it but the sewer line was too far. Marty had to hook the trailer back up to the car, and we had to drive through the entire rv park to circle back around. As we circled around, it was like announcing we were the idiots who pulled through in the wrong direction. Lesson learned, we will follow the directions the people in the front office give us upon check-in. They know better than we do…lol.
Devlin, our 5 year old, had a fever. As a result, we didn't do as much in Pismo as we would have liked. We had planned to spend the day at the beach. Instead, we relaxed at the campground and waited until the evening after dinner to head down and watch the sunset off the pier. I had bbq'd at our campsite, but Devlin wanted soup, so we stopped by the Splash Cafe for Devlin to get a bowl of clam chowder. Derek recognized the box and realized it was the same place that sold their clam chowder to Costco, which he thought was pretty cool. Since we stop by Pismo Beach again on the way home, we will plan to hit up all the places we didn't at that time.
As I am writing this we are on our way to Monterey. Our next stop is the Marina Dunes RV Park in Marina, California. We are excited about heading to the Bay. In Yahoo news this morning, several whales have been spotted 50 yards from the shore. It's supposed to be amazing!
