Odds and Ends…..

It has been a few days since my last post, so it is time to update everyone on what has been going on down here.  Now, we have less than 2 weeks left in our stay here and already we have mixed feelings on leaving.

On Monday, the unofficial President’s Day holiday, the campground was full.  So was the city of Pismo Beach.  We went for a long walk and ended up out on the pier.  The sidewalks, parking lots, and streets were all very busy.  With the holiday and great weather, many folks came out.

Looking back to Pismo Beach from the pier.

We have a small problem with our satellite dish.  In the wind, it tends to move off target.  You can actually wiggle it from up on the roof.  I have been trying, with little success, to fix it.  I have been in contact with tech support at Winegard, who makes the dish and have done a few things, none of which are a permanent or total fix.  Found out from them this morning that I need to order a replacement turret kit to the tune of $40 plus shipping.  It should arrive here on Tuesday, so I know what I will be doing next week!

Today it started out sunny but now is getting high thin clouds.  We are planning a bike ride, not sure exactly where yet.

Don’t know if you saw the above cartoon but it is kind of cute!  (And possibly true for more of us than want to admit it!)

The above picture is our caption contest!  If you can think of a good caption for it, send in a comment to this post.

Can't believe your time is over so soon. Seems like it went fairly quickly. Love the cartoon.

"Don't look down your nose at me, shorty!" Hard to believe that it's almost time to roll back North!
