Pismo Beach is a neat town. The drive was awesome - beautiful rolling hills and it only took us two hours on the return trip. Here's something funny. The bank directly from where Hanna works got robbed the day before we were there. Guess what the name of the bank is - Rabobank. Seriously. Not a joke.
It might get up to 70 degrees today - yeh!

This is the kiosk where the camp hosts work - just steps from our motor home. There's three camp hosts, Spike being one and I'm a back up. It's a big responsibility - handling money, signing people up for overnight and day parking, etc. A lot of paperwork for the state.
Saw a good movie today - "Seven Pounds" with Will Smith. Really good - it gets you at the end.

One thing that keeps catching my eye is the mountains. We don't have those in Florida. They are magnificent and many have snow on them. It was a crisp clear day, colbalt blue sky with the Pacific on one side and snow covered foothills on the other. Not too exciting day but it was a good one.

We decided to this very simply - no car. Just two good bikes which we love. We ride into town everyday (except today was cold and rainy). It's an easy ride along the ocean, cross the railroad tracks and on a bike path all the way to downtown Ventura. Less than 2 miles each way. On our way to a hardware store yesterday we found this great authentic Mexican restaurant on one of the side streets. We're enjoying getting to know the area. For those of you that don't know where Ventura is - it's in the northern end of Southern California between Malibu and Santa Barbara.

My dad took me surfing here in the early sixties. Now, with 15 days left in 2008, I'm living 75 ft from that very spot with my wife Patty our cat Nugget and 15 lb. Puerto Rican former homeless mut we call Rico. Waking up this morning with Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands on the horizon and 5 surfers ripping a peak 50 yards out from our port window with the dawn on fire was a jaw dropping scene.
Good start to our new life.
