Monterey

Monterey

We spent a week in Monterey and had a great time, with so much to see I need to break up this post into two parts.  First up is the Monterey Aquarium: Next was a tour along the coast down to pebble beach.  Talk about drop dead type of scenery, it was breathtaking….   We also had to deal with a major plumbing issue, the fancy motorized toilet had a malfunction and the ball valve would not open which required…

Vandenberg & San Luis Obispo

Vandenberg & San Luis Obispo

We spent a few days at Vandenberg Air Force Base, the Space Launch facility on the west coast.  The base was huge and sat right outside the small town of a Lompoc, CA.  We did some touring of the rocket launch facilities and bike riding around this very spread out base.  We spent a afternoon at the private beach on the base, which due to it’s secure location was very quiet.   We then moved north to San Luis Obispo,…

Ventura Highway…Beach Life

Ventura Highway…Beach Life

So after a few days in a weed infested RV park at Port Hueneme, we scored a four day stay at Point Mugu, right on the beach.  When we arrived, we walked around and found a spot facing the beach, only 30 amps, but who cares with this view out the windscreen….

life at the beach

life at the beach

After San Diego, we headed a little north of Oceanside, CA to Del MAr Beach on Camp Pendleton, which has RV sites with full hook up right on the beach for around $40 a night.  We set up in the second row for some beach time. We did some sightseeing in Oceanside, walked out on the public pier, walked a little around. We also watch the maries playing in the bay and ocean with their Amphibious Craft.  One night they…
