Our camping trip to the Oceano Dunes (located in the region of Pismo Beach) over the weekend was an AMAZING experience! We ended up going with George’s co-worker (Lars) and his wife (Kelly) and of course Widget came along as well.
I actually was a little freaked out when we first started driving on the beach. It is so strange to be driving so close to the ocean! I would see the waves pick up and think we were going to be carried off to sea. I eventually felt comfortable once I got use to it.
Probably one of the most memorable experiences was going out to the dunes to drive the FJ Cruiser. I skipped driving and helped George navigate instead. Lars had his Jeep so we had a little team of vehicles to drive through the dunes. There was MILES of dunes, it was an incredible sight to see.
We ended up sleeping in the FJ. George bought a special air mattress for the FJ. It was nice to be able to sleep in the SUV. I like tents too, but being in the FJ added a sense of security – though the beach was perfectly safe, plus no dangerous wildlife aside for pelicans and seagulls.
I am very much looking forward to visiting the Oceano Dunes again! Hopefully next time we can go with even more friends as well as family.
