Lake Moreno 9-24-11

We took off Friday at noon to spend the weekend at Lake Moreno County Campground east of San Diego Lake Moreno.  This was a nice campground with E/W hookups with a dump station on site.  This was our first visit so we weren't quite sure what to expect.

We arrived about 3pm and got everything set up.  Nice roomy campsite at the end of a row.
Towards evening the sky got dark and we started to get some rain.  We got a couple of good sized showers with some lightening off in the distance.  So we spent the evening listening to the Angels game and playing Crazy Eights.

Note: Verizon has no cellphone signal, we were parked under a tree so no TV. 
It was kind of nice to spend the weekend without any technology.

On Saturday morning we awoke to a bright sunny day.  The temp got up to the mid-80's with a slight breeze, perfect day.  After a late breakfast we took a short dirive to the Railroad Museum near Campo, Ca.Railroad Museum.  It was an interesting way to spend a couple of hours.

We got back to the campsite in time for a little nap and relax.  Robin started up the Dutch Oven for a potato ditty.  It was great, potatoes, bacon, onions and cheese. YUM!  I got the grill out and we grilled a couple of pork steaks to go along with the potatoes.

After dinner we decided to watch one of the DVD's that we have piled up.  We watched RED.  I thought it was great.  Perfect end to a great weekend.  We didn't want to leave......but allas work is neccessary....gas money for coach..!!!!
 Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Tall Ships and Chula Vista RV Park Labor Day 2011

We started our weekend on Friday with a half day of work and hitting the freeway to San Diego and the Chula Vista RV Park in Chula Vista.Chula Vista RV Resort. This isn't usually our type of camping but we thought we would check it out  The traffic was pretty good and we were checked in and set up by 3pm. Very nice Resort. The weather was perfect lots of sunshine and a nice ocean breeze.  We settled and and had hamburger sliders for dinner. 

We awoke Saturday to overcast skies but temp was nice.  We decided to head out to the Tall Ship Festival at the Maritime Museum. Festival of Sail  We got there early and had a great place to park across the street.  One of the ships was the Star of India. History of Star of India.
Awesome to walk around the oldest active sailing ship. We boarded a couple of other Tall ships anchored at the museum. 

 It was noonish so we headed back to the Resort.  Sunny for the rest of day of which there were walks with Buddee and Liz and naps.  Saturday night the Resort had a country band playing in the park area. We walked  by to check it out.  The band was pretty good.

Sunday the day started out sunny and stayed sunny for the day.  We just lounged around all day with walks around the Resort and Marina.  Around 2:30 we strolled up to the free hots dogs that the park was serving.  Good hot dogs. About 4am on Monday morning we heard the pitter patter of rain on the roof......where the heck did that come from????  By morning it was gone and we had to pack up and head home.  We did drive through a couple of areas of rain on the way. 

Another Great Weekend.
Enjoy the pictures.
