San Diego, Day 3

Trip 2 – Day 9

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Yesterday I contacted another friend from years ago, who lives in the San Diego area.  Somehow, on incredibly short notice, she was able to come to our campsite and have breakfast with us.  We are sorority sisters from our Oregon State days, and she was a bridesmaid in our wedding.  Again, as is the story so often in life, (or maybe just in my life) we lost touch.   Thirty-five years later, we hugged and talked and tried to catch up on all the details we had each missed out on.  Dear Gay, you look wonderful, and there is such a peace about you.  I hope our paths will cross again very soon, and until then, there’s email!

We had an uneventful day, ran some errands, came home and had a DELICIOUS lunch of avocado sandwiches.  That’s right – avocado……fresh Haas avocado, from the tree, grown in her neighborhood; a gift from Gay!  It was wonderful; it was beyond wonderful!  Varietal produce – that’s what it’s all about.

This is a fairly large campground, on Mission Bay.  We are happy with our campsite, but not so thrilled with the price.  It’s San Diego, and we are in view of the water, so it is the way it is.  Our view is lovely, and the landscaping around the park is wonderful.

The park seems to have a little “thing” about dogs.  They can’t be on any landscaped area.  They can’t go on the walkways around the office, laundry room, etc.  They can’t walk on the beach.  And, they can’t be on a leash longer than 6 feet.  (no, I didn’t make the longer tether for Wiley.  We’re on good behavior)  However, there doesn’t seem to be a restriction on the ducks that frequent this area.  The small fountain, located by the entrance/office, is inhabited by ducks and covered with duck poop.  Nasty.

Aside from the dog issues, it is a nice, quiet place to stay.  I would happily come back.
