Last night the temps went lower than I wanted to experience so I checked in to the RV Park behind the dunes. I still had 2 nights paid for beach parking but was hoping I could get a refund of some kind.
The office worker was very accomodating and told me to just go ahead and park in any spot I wanted for the night and then come back into the office in the morning to make payment arrangements.
I parked in the same spot I parked in last year, Number 1. I did not back in but pulled in forward so I could have a better view of the beach. Hooked up and enjoyed the electric and water.
It felt good to have the electric fireplace to warm the coach.
I had been using my generator a few hours at night to use the computer and to use the furnace. In the 6 days that I stayed on the beach I burned about $40 worth of fuel using the generator. That's about $7 a day plus the $10 I was paying to park on the beach. That's way too much use of the generator.
I paid $150.00 for a week in the RV Park. That's about $21 a day - only $4 more to have electric and water. So I decided I could have the best of both worlds and stay on the beach during the day (for free) and the RV Park at night... which is what I did today.
These Pelicans amaze me. They let you walk right up to them.

Chris and I went into town today. I needed to get Propane for the first time since I purchased the RV. I still had 1/4 of a tank but wanted to fill up as I will be using it a lot more later on in my travels. I also filled up my gas tank.
We stopped to have lunch and then returned to the beach. I parked near the waves and finished reading a book I started when I got to Texas. It's title is "Wild" and is the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe—and built her back up again. Good book.
Left the beach around 4:00 and returned to my campsite in the RV Park. Had a nice long shower and about to watch a movie... "Escape From Alaska".
Had a pretty good day.
