Doheney Weekend

We finally got out for more than a day trip. We spent two nights at Doheny State Beach for what we thought was going to be a surfing trip, but a shore break and two-foot surf kept Andy in the sleeping bag texting the weekend away.

Our buddy Mike came out on Saturday for barbecue and some cold ones. Mike was Andy's surfing teacher and we thought they'd get out again, but the conditions were much better for tri-tip, roasted vegetables, escalloped potatoes and adult beverages.

The weather was pretty cold for Southern California standards. It was in the 40's overnight and never got above the mid-sixties during the day. While Andy tended to stay within a car-charger's length of his cellphone, Sherry and I had wonderful walks along the beach, coffee on the jetty and cozy campfires. This was a great trip, even without the surfing, and we're looking forward to a return trip in December.

Love your blog. We purchased our pop up trailer used, and we were looking for some suggestions on beach camping spots. So, I have been following your blog.

When you purchased your motorhome, my wife and I were sad, and thought you might stop blogging. Turns out we met you last weekend at doheny and didnt even know it. You asked about our coleman bbq (space 90), and you mentioned that you had a popup and had purchased the motorhome!

Thanks for the great information.
