Oceano and Alice Swope, Wednesday, April 10, 2013

This morning we made a quick run to Solvang to purchase some pastries to take with us today as we moved from Buellton to Oceano where my former nursing school roommate, Alice Swope, lives and we would be visiting today and we were going to take the pastries to her.  So a little past 10am we were packed up and moving 51 miles to the north.  We traveled through hilly country with miles of vineyards.  About an hour we arrived at Pismo Sands RV Park where we will be staying for the next 2 nights.  After eating lunch, we drove a short distance to Alice's house where she and her husband, John, live.  It was so good seeing my friend after several years.  Her husband, unfortunately, has been quite ill for several years and requires someone to be with him constantly.  Their son was able to come over today to be with his dad allowing Alice to take us for a drive about the area.  There are miles of beaches and communities with beach houses for rent.  It was a beautiful cloud free day but the air was a little cool coming from the west and the Pacific Ocean.  Returning back to the house, we sat catching up on our lives and then Alice prepared a supper of chicken tacos and fresh fruit salad before we returned to our motorhome for the night.
