New Adventure Begins
Well we have arrived at our first stop since Nikki has retired yesterday. For those of you who don't know, we have been planning this for a number of years. We actually sold our house in Irvine, Ca 2 years ago and moved into our motorhome full time. We stayed at Newport Dunes RV Resort which not far from our workplaces. Now Nikki is retired and I am working part time on the road. Our first stop on this new adventure is Silver Strand State Beach in Coronado, California near San Diego. We have a beach front spot with the front window opening to the ocean and our slide Arizona type room(big bay windows)also oepn to the ocean. This is what we had in mind when we think of beach RVing. We are going to hang out here for 4 days then move inland for our 2 days of RV Driving School. For those of you who do not know about California State Parks during the high season of holidays and Memorial Day to Labor Day reservations are normally necessary well in advance and the costs have escalated in the last 12 months. We are doing our part for the state budget. $50 per night, no hook ups, no dump site and parked cheek to cheek. The weather the first day was perfect and then remainder of the 3 days was typical Southern California June Gloom. Chris and Karol came down for a last visit on Saturday before our departure for El Cajon. We mostly just took it easy these days, just walking on the beach and bike riding in the area. They have nice bike trails that go all the way into town.
