Wed.. We took our time packing up and pulling out. We only had an 80 mile drive..
We arrived at San Onofre Beach at Camp Pendleton and got settled for a week. Being Thousand Trails members, we can only stay two weeks at a time and then have to be out for a week before heading back in. So our week will be spent overlooking the Pacific.. Not bad except the weather forecast doesn’t sound all that terrific. They have two levels of parking here in the campground. The first level is directly on the beach but of course they were all filled up, when we made our reservation. We were actually lucky to get a site at all and are in the back row, but that’s okay for now,we can see the ocean from our site. Most likely by tomorrow we won’t have a view..
Last nights sunset..
This is a view looking back on our home from the beach overlook..
Thursday…Happy St Patrick’s Day……..
Today was shopping day.. We headed to the commissary to stock up and buy diesel for $3.99.. It has gone up 17 cents in two weeks. We stopped for a nice lunch and Kevin got to have his corned beef, since I didn’t cook one for him!
He also got in touch with an old Marine buddy that he was with in Nam . He knew he came from this area. I went online and looked up his name and there it was. Kevin called, and they talked for quite awhile reminiscing.. Ted lost his leg while there. Not sure if it’s good for either one of them as it sure digs up old memories, and from what I heard, they weren’t good ones.. They may get together.
I hope to check out a few areas while we are here. Temecula and Carlsbad. Not sure if the weather will cooperate though.
I just came back from watching the sunset again. It was rather cloudy tonight…
Surfers waiting for the perfect wave…
These firepits and tables at every site…
Nothing more relaxing than sipping wine and listening to the waves..
