Hwy 1 Roadtrip: ATV-ing on Pismo Beach Dunes

atv-pismo-1Alrighty.  Day 3 of our quickie roadtrip included 2 hours of ATV-ing on Pismo Beach sand dunes -- 2 expensive, epic, fantastically beautiful, sandy, windy, totally fun hours.  atv-pismo-2  So wonderfully weird to find oneself driving – ON A BEACH – in California.atv-pismo-3  We arrived, and Little Dude was instructed first.atv-pismo-4 atv-pismo-5 atv-pismo-6 atv-pismo-7 And then Instructor Dude totally sent Little Dude off.  All by his itty-bitty-baby-of-the-family self.  Alone. On a vehicle.  That he was driving.atv-pismo-8 atv-pismo-9 And then he group-instructed the rest of us.atv-pismo-10 He talked and talked and talked, and I could see his mouth moving and saying words, but none of his instruction was really reaching any of my brain waves, ‘cause I was “OMGOSH, Little DUDE!!!!”atv-pismo-11 atv-pismo-12 And then we were ostensibly ready to take off and join Little Dude …atv-pismo-13 atv-pismo-14 atv-pismo-15 And this is where I put my Big Girl Camera safely away in the car.  And everything that follows is my trusty, tiny, slightly-more-sand-friendly Galaxy …atv-pismo-16 atv-pismo-17 atv-pismo-18 atv-pismo-19 atv-pismo-20 atv-pismo-21 The clouds were kind enough to join us, keep the temperature pleasant, and throw gorgeous shadows across the dunes …atv-pismo-22 atv-pismo-23 atv-pismo-24 atv-pismo-25 atv-pismo-26 atv-pismo-27 atv-pismo-28 atv-pismo-29 That two hours of fun totally tired out a certain someone…atv-pismo-30
