I am a Senior Citizen…I turned 55 and even though Jerry is right behind in a few months, I get all the discounts and he has to wait!
It’s also official we have completed the Pumpkin Station and had a blast doing it. What a wonderful feeling of knowing that we are truly appreciated and that we are NOT workhorses, instead we are managers just like the way it is supposed to be. We are returning for the trees, but for now we are in vacation mode and already having the time of our lives.
We stopped at the Camping World in San Marcos, California for a few minor things that needed to be done on Maggie. We are so spoiled by having Jerry do most all of the maintenance that when we have to go to the shop we soon realize why we do not like it. We arrived early for our 10am appointment and knew it would take some time to just diagnose the problems so we went to breakfast. Returning one hour later and they had not even moved Maggie…ugh, this was going to be a long day.
Finally around 2pm we were out of there with hundreds of dollars out of our pockets and parts that Jerry will replace on our water heater, our jacks are now in working condition, but absolutely no answer to why our refrigerator was making that noise. According to their diagnostics, they could not replicate the noise. Funny how often I continue to hear it!
With that behind us, we focused on vacation time. We stopped at Walmart to do some shopping and then checked in for one night at the Paradise by the Sea RV Resort. Even though we had laundry and cleaning to do, we chose to have a glass of wine and take this moment to just enjoy where we were and just relax. Check out our review on the resort, it is one of those gems…very pricey but oh so nice.
Got up early the next morning, took a walk to the beach and had a great Breakfast Burrito at Buccaneer Café. Not only does this place have location…location…location, the food was delicious and the customer service was exceptional, Linda was a great host!
It’s time to move on down the road and visit Long Beach, not only the Queen Mary
and the Aquarium of the Pacific
but we will be spending one night on Catalina Island…stay tuned for more of our vacation time and see all the fun things on our agenda.
