In past visits to the Rincon, we would be getting ready to return to our hectic lives after just 2, or 3 nights just as we began to slow down mentally. And even when we had retired, we were still on some sort of self imposed schedule. This is the first time we have stayed for more than 4 days, and knowing that we will have logged some 10 days when we do finally pull anchor puts a smile on our collective faces.
In the interests of full disclosure, we are less than 70' from a set of train tracks, and there are 2 to 3 freight trains that pass by each day, as well as numerous 'Surfliner' commuter trains, and less than a 1/16th of a mile away is US HWY 101, which always boasts a steady stream of cars and trucks. Nevertheless, if you face the ocean you cannot hear any of that......just the waves, the wind and the ubiquitous sea birds. There are several beach colonies along Rincon Parkway (Faria, Hobson, Solimar, etc) boasting multi million dollar homes, and yet they have the same view for which we pay $28/night, and the same traffic noise and train noise we do.....we have no utilities to pay, no property taxes to pay, and no 'stuff' to take care of day after day.
