Well, Debbie and I just got home from our 2.5 day trip to Pismo beach. I had Thursday and Friday off so we left Wednesday afternoon. Headed up to Port Hueneme and stayed at the Navy Lodge on base there on Wednesday night.
Next morning we headed up to the beach with most of the drive behind us and with both of us well rested.
Got to the park about 11:30 and spent the rest of the day playing in the dunes and hanging out on the beach. Great area and thankfully we beat the crowd that began showing up the next afternoon. Headed back to Vandenberg AFB where we stayed in the AF lodge Thur/Fri night. Vandenberg is down the road about 30-35 minutes from Pismo and it cost us a whopping $74 bucks to stay there 2 nights.
Sadly, the AFB accommodations were better than the Navy ones. I guess those "sensitive" types need better care and feeding.
Friday morning we got off to an early start and hit the dunes about 0930. At times, it seemed we had the entire area to ourselves and I got a chance to run a few of the larger hills that were pretty packed the afternoon before.
Leave it to say, we had a blast and we didn't break anything (not that I didn't try a couple times. Anyone wanting info on the park can find it here: Oceano Dunes SVRA
Here are a few photos for now and I'll post up a video or two later after I edit them.
Ah, the beach:
Already crowded up:
Honey, get me the sun screen:
The guys here drive around with air compressors and charge a dollar a tire to fill up. How much to let air OUT?
Ah, a sunny day at the beach with my wife AND my jeep! Does it get better?
