... to Avail a middle class seaside town that had a Friday night farmers market on. Complete with live music. Went for a beer on the pier, watched the sunset, chatted to a local fisherman told us about the size of the sharks you could catch off the pier, claimed that he once saw someone catching a 9ft shark. Left Avail in search of accommodation booked into the next town at a motel chain. Had our first dinner at Denny's a big diner ...
... Creole style is popular inside the southern Mississippi Valley and along side Gulf coast. Maybe the most distinctive feature of several French country homes may be the tall second-story windows which are often arched at the top, and which exceed the eaves, penetrating the cornice. This rather unusual design for windows - favorable on American French Provincial houses - was modeled right after the stately, ...
... an album of photos she had taken over the years - she was really knowledgable and helpful. Time to head for the town of Cambria. It is a village with a lot of retired people and artsy folk, some gorgeous galleries that were wonderful to go through, especially enjoyed a gallery which had mainly glass work in it - some if it really funny and quirky - would have loved to take lots of it with me. We got a coffee there then it was time to hit the ...
... dinner at a vegetarian cafe back in SLO and they invited me back to the hostel they were staying in for some drinks and conversation. Questions arose about the name of my camper and I told them I hadn't really decided. A few of the guys fro various countries thought it appropriate to name it "Roxy", a shortened and more 21st century version of John Steinbeck's "Rocinante" in his 1960'2 novel, "Travels With Charley." I liked that name for the camper but it didn't suit the truck so I came ...

I stayed at this hotel on August 27 2011 in room 37 and was bitten over 100 times by bedbugs. When I informed the hotel manager (Tony?), he informed me that they did not have bedbugs and that I had probably left the window open and was bitten by a mosquito or something. However, I have the photos to prove it. Bites from my toes, all over my feet, up my legs and back, on my arms and hands.
After promising an immediate refund, nothing arrived on my credit card bill apart from the original charge. When I called to complain and demand my promised refund, the manager said it had been done and that it was my credit cards fault. That call ended with him telling me to 'go sc**w myself'!
Such customer service! Avoid this hotel like the plague that it is.
