Surf Warning

This weekend had triple digit temperatures and an unusual storm that brought in ten foot waves along the Southern California coast. For us, that meant road trip. We used the new RV as a base station under the palms at Corona Del Mar.

Sherry's Dad Art joined us, as well as Andy's buddy Travis. We had several thousand other folks join us too. The parking lot was full by noon, and it stayed that way until dusk.

If you look closely at the photos, you can see how crowded the sand was. It was not uncommon to have the waves knock you into several strangers, and none of the umbrellas in Art's photo are ours.

Sherry is looking great and enjoying the new comforts of a real RV and not the Caboose. These little road trips are really helpful for us to learn the little things about the new rig and figure out what we need to do before the Zion trip. We're still trying to come up with a pet name for it, and we're playing with variations of La Casa Rana (the Frog House), which is what we call our home. Ranita is Spanish for little frog. Since the RV is made by Dutchmen, De Kikker, is Dutch for The Frog.
