Pismo Beach
Oct. 8, 2007

< < previous | next > >

We stopped at a market in Pismo Beach for sandwiches and settled in on the pier to eat them, where we saw four or more Lifeguard and Sheriff's trucks on the beach. A ski boat had washed ashore, its prop stuck in the sand. For this, they called out the troops, including an elite jet ski squad that tried to pull the craft loose. Meanwhile, the skipper and crew waded ashore, bellies hanging out of their loose ski vests, laughing and smoking cigars. The sheriffs appeared to be enjoying the excitement, even though some in the crowd were whispering about drunken boaters and impending arrests.
