A Long Walk Off a Short Pier

Today Carol is feeling somewhat better.  Her wrist pain has changed to a dull ache which is better than the sharp pains of yesterday.  No doubt the meds have helped.  So today we are not able to ride bikes, but did decide to go for a walk into town.

The original intent was to locate some geocaches, but the two we tried to find stayed hidden and we were not successful.  So instead we turned it into a long 2.35 mile walk to parts of town we had not walked before.  The weather was sunny with a high of 70, so the walk was very enjoyable and we really got some sun.

We didn’t actually walk to the pier this time, but not too far from it either.

Here at Pismo Coast Village, the months of January & February are off season and during the week the park is only at 20-25% capacity.  They use this time for major projects and this year they are totally rebuilding two rows of RV sites.  They are installing new sewers, new water lines and 50 amp power as that section of the park is only 30 amp.  It is the more popular side of the park so the upgrades will be really welcome.   As a result of the construction though, most RVs are now on the south side of the park while the construction occurs.  In fact yesterday, the road to the north side was closed most of the day as they were installing the new sewer tie-in.

Above you can see the trench with the new green sewer lines sticking up waiting to be filled back in and the pipes capped.  I don’t know how long it will take them to complete the renovations on this section, but it will be interesting to see what the sites look like when completed.

Dave, happy to hear Carol if feeling a little better. I admit to now knowing much about the area but was surprised to learn that January and February are the off season.
