Last week we traveled from the chilly mountains near Idyllwild, CA to the warmth of the Pacific Ocean and Oceanside, CA.
First stop was Guajome County Park for a few pleasant nights and a shakedown of the RV. Fortunately the Guajome Park was near a Home Depot store since the RV needed some minor repairs. We fixed the leaking kitchen sink drain, wired up the portable solar panel, replaced the tv antenna, and fixed the broken screen on the bathroom vent fan. We also organized and repacked the RV and can actually find most of the things we need now.
From Guajome Park to Oceanside Harbor is about a 20 mile round trip on a lovely bike path and we made the trip twice on our new folding bikes. Neither of us have been biking much the past few years but it was great fun and good exercise.
We hosted dinners at the RV for some of our friends from Oceanside and San Diego.
For our final night we moved to Oceanside Harbor which allows overnight camping in a parking lot right on the beach and what a spectacular sunset. Deb had a little mishap with the machine that dispenses parking permits and accidentally purchased two $28 permits but that got sorted out without too much trouble. It was a surprisingly relaxing and peaceful place considering we were in a parking lot.
