    Weekend in Pismo Beach

    LOML and I spent last weekend in Pismo Beach CA, about 4 hours up the coast from where we live. We attended a wedding and just spent a couple days chillin''s been a long time since we had a real vacation. We stayed at an old hotel (the Pismo Beach Hotel...what a unique name) a couple short blocks from the beach and the pier. The place had been recently refurbished and was very clean and comfortable, and within a block of all sorts of eating and entertainment options.

    I had a chance to play with my new (to me) Nikon, and I'm pretty happy with the results. (Need to spend some more time with the owner's manual, though.) Here are a few of the pics...more are available in a photo album here.

    Looks like a nice relaxing weekend Vaughn.

    Pictures turned out nice. I like the late night shots out on the pier.

    Pretty cool.... I had to look up the area on google maps to see if I had been there.... I think we may have driven through on one or more of our trips south... the first wife and I stayed at San Luis Obispo at the Madonna Inn a few times, but don't think we ever went on down to Pismo.... Made the tour at Hearst Castle a couple of times which is nearby.. maybe an hour or so north... somewhere in that area is a junk store... One man's junk is another man's treasure... apt name and interesting to wander through.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Great pics. I think that is the same spot my SIL and BIL got married. We didn't make the wedding, but looks familiar from the pics I saw.

    Vaughn great pictures especially the ones in your album. You made me very homesick for the beaches we used to frequent in SA. Seeing the waves and sea oh boy what a reminder a lake just aint the same.
