Happy Labor Day from Port San Luis

Greetings from my 1966 Driftwood Trailer

The perfect kitchen for a Betty Crocker Camp Dinner!

Happy Labor Day folks! We took the Driftwood out for the second time to Avila Beach up on the Central Coast of California. Every RV in the world must have been out so I felt it fitting to send a greeting from my little trailer. I actually cooked sausage and eggs on the tiny stove! There was no water where we camped and the bathroom was down the mountain but the views were unbeatable. Port San Luis in Avila Beach is one of the oldest ports in California, having been a working port for the Spanish and a passenger ship embarcation spot until the early 1900's. Nowadays it is a fishing pier and you can go out fishing for a half day or a whole day on the fishing charters that leave from there. There is an old fish restaurant on the end of the pier called the Port San Luis Inn. There are lots of  sea lions you can watch on the end of the pier too. The whole place has a kind of old California John Steinbeck feel to it. With the economy being the way it is it looks like camping is making a comeback in a major way. It seems the RV world is not immune to the American tendency to supersize everything . The trailers just keep getting bigger and so do the trucks . Our little trailer was totally drarved by these behemoths! It reminded me of the little House in one of my favorite children's books, The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton after they build all the skyscrapers and the little house is left in the middle.

  1. OH MY GOODNESS! I am soooooo jealous! That is a darling little camper. We want a small one too! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

  2. Oh, and I love your awning. And I love your stove. And I love your sink. Wow! What a beauty!

  3. Cool trailer! Just saw this post, the location is close to my hometown. I have spent a lot of hours at Port San Luis (and in younger days the bars at Avila!)
