Week 23: Sep 8 – Sep 14, 2013 Homeless Trio Departs, Cayucos, and New Friends…

In Lompoc, the Homeless Trio departs. Sad. They were a lot of fun, and we became rather good friends while they were here. First time I’ve lived, dined, swapped stories with people who live full time outside. They came to the RV park with new tent and sleeping bags after theirs were confiscated at their normal park home in Santa Barbara. Certainly drugs and alcohol have wreaked havoc on their bodies and minds, but some had great upbringing which showed thru, and were more aware of current events and historical situations than many other people. We pray for them, and wish them the very best.

Super people at New Hope Church in Lompoc, and great BBQ!

Departing Lompoc, we stay one night at an RV park that turns out to be not much more than a fancy parking lot in Oceano, CA. We depart the next day, happy we did not make reservations for a week!

Visit Grover Beach. Wow! Miles long, sand soft as can be, people drive cars on the beach. Camping only $10/night. We walk on the beach for a few minutes, planning to return another day.

Great massage, which was advertised as a foot massage, but covered back, legs, feet, neck… Oooooh.

Cayucos, CA

Cayucos, CA

Travel a short distance (40 miles) from Oceano to Cayucos. Way better location. Quaint village in a bay. Lots of history, including their pier that dates back to 1877, and the town is raising funds to restore it. Stay here at least one week, maybe two if they have a cancellation. I’m told the July 4 celebration is a must.

Make great new friends Troy and Ada. Such a wealth of knowledge. They remember jumping off the Cayucos Pier as kids. So they’ve been around a while. And they shared a highly recommended RV Park near the Salton Sea for the winter. Love their dog Butch.

 

Enjoyed wine and laughter with other neighbors Breck, Kathy and Gordon, and Rick.

Being on the road, meeting new friends, is so worth it. And the views from our front and back yards are priceless. Love this being on the road stuff.

    At 13, mom and dad took a trip to Vandenburg AFB to visit friends from Cheyenne. Didn’t want to go. Had a girlfriend that lived near my Grandparents house I was planning to have some extra time with. Still, had to go. 1st time in California. Toured the launching pads at Vandenburg. Climbed the lush grass hills and played at the beach of the Pacific Ocean. Made some great friends and even met a few cute girls out there. Enjoyed myself so much out there around Lompoc, I didn’t want to leave. Thanks for bringing back great memories!
