    Malibu part 2

    July 20, 2017 in the United States

    Unser letzter Abend in der dicken Minna. Wir stehen im RV-Resort, was garnicht sooo furchtbar hässlich ist, dank eines coolen Platzes auf der zweiten Terasse. Der Abendhimmel ist wieder einmal schrecklichcalifornischhübsch. Die Sanddollars werden gezählt und wir müssen uns mit 186 Stück den unglaublichen 263 Stück der Super6 geschlagen geben. Gratulation! Wir essen die letzten Bagels und alles was noch so im Kühlschrank war. Besonders tapfer vernichten die Kinder auch noch das restliche Eis vorm Schlafengehen: sehr brav! Unser letztes Feuerholz und den Toaster schenken wir den Nachbarn. Und dann leeren wir auch den Rotwein und stoßen auf alle schaukeligen Fahrten in der dicken Minna an!Read more

    Santa Barbara und Malibu Beach

    June 30, 2017 in the United States

    Nach einer sehr unruhigen Nacht in Lomboc geht es wieder weiter Richtung Süden. Unser Etappenziel ist der berühmte Malibu Beach...trotz Wochenende und bevorstehendem 4.Juli haben wir noch einen Platz vorab reservieren können. Die Fahrt verlief eher unauffällig (beide Mädls schliefen gut 😊), ein Mittags Zwischenstopp musste trotzdem sein. Somit gab es eine Mittagsjause am Strand mit Delfine beobachten. Ein paar Delfine schwammen sehr nah am Strand herum. Weiter ging es nach Santa Barbara. Laut Reiseführer die schönste Stadt in Californien... wir sind schon mal gespannt. Leider ist es beim durchfahren geblieben, weil die Mädls kurz vor Santa Barbara eingeschlafen sind und wir keine 12m lange Parklücke gefunden haben. Aber was wir von der Innenstadt gesehen haben war echt schön... also weiter nach Malibu Beach.
    Am Campingplatz angekommen merken wir sehr schnell, dass das ein berühmter Strandabschnitt in Kalifornien ist... wir wollen ja an den Strand, also rein in die Badekluft und ab geht's...
    Das Bade- und Sandspielvergnügen war fein aber es ist ja auch noch Packtag, also lieber nicht zu lange trödeln. Natürlich ging das Packen nicht so schnell voran wie gedacht, aber irgendwann haben wir dann doch noch alles organisiert und einigermaßen untergebracht. Spät und etwas traugig weil das unsere letzte Nacht im lieb gewonnenen Campi werden wird gehen wir dann auch ins Bett...

    Malibu, Oh Malibu, tis of you I sing ...

    December 13, 2017 in the United States

    I love Malibu and Topanga Canyon. For me this is the quintessential California experience. I don't mean the tony Malibu Colony parts, but the surfers off the side of Pacific Coast Highway, the coastline stretching out in front of you, the impossibly blue sky, the scrub, the fauna (right now parched,) the local restaurants.

    We are in an RV park about 20 miles from Topanga Canyon, on a ridge, so that when we pulled into our spot we had a view of the Pacific and could hear the waves. Delicious. This is the most expensive RV park we've been in at about $80.00 a night but the view alone makes it worthwhile. But it's also a nice park - wide spaces, nice bathrooms (I'll spare you pictures of the bathroom this time), a laundry facility with the best view of any laundry facility in the country. When you stay someplace like this, you have to resist the temptation to pop into Santa Monica or LA because you will get caught up in traffic and spoil this experience.

    We went to my favorite LA restaurant on Monday afternoon - Inn of the Seventh Ray - with our dear friend Hollis who introduced us and her son Ethan. Very Topanga Canyon, my food was infused with special elevating vibrations, etc. etc. and lunch was many hours. It's beautiful and well worth a visit if you come.

    Our time here is devoted to visiting people so not anything too interesting for you but I do have some nice pictures to show you with more to come. Hope you are well! xoxo

    San Diego and LA, 12/8 & 12/9

    December 12, 2017 in the United States

    Did I mention in my last post that I was reluctant to leave Tucson? but we did, and were in the car for about 7 hours as we travelled to San Diego. Our campground is in Bonita, California, called Sweetwater. Another State Park and nice but not great. Of course the big thing being about the San Diego-area is the near perfect weather. At first I was not that excited about being in SoCal - I was not happy about the traffic and having the camper in 7-lanes of freeway traffic. But Harry has been fearless in his driving and he arranged our free day in San Diego (Dec. 9) so my spirits picked up.

    We went to Balboa Park which is 1200 acres smack dab in the middle of San Diego that has the Zoo and 17 museums (dinosaurs, the study of humankind, photographs, and automobiles to name a few) so enormous and we were there on a Saturday. Pretty much everything we do is dictated by Jack and Sam (thus the name of this blog) because museums, for example, are not yet pet-friendly. We would have liked to see an exhibit about cannabilism but had to content ourselves with taking pictures of the gruesome poster (see below) and except doggie treats from the docent.

    Saturday was also dictated by finding dog parks for Jack and Sam which we try to do often to compensate to them for their many hours of confinement in the car. We found an off leash park within Balboa but we had our real score when we drove up the coast 20 minutes to Del Mar and found a beach that allowed dogs. Del Mar is gorgeous, tony, and right on the Pacific. It also happens to be the very first place I ever visited in California way back when, so it was interesting to revisit.

    Next morning we did our usual pulling up of stakes and headed further up the coast to LA. I have to admit, I was still out of sorts, and Harry and I experienced our first bout of snipy behavior. In some ways that is not bad after living in each other's pockets for three weeks, but just the same, unpleasant. And that is the mood in which we arrived at Kathy Glasscock's memorial service at 2:30 p.m. in "The Valley." Kathy had many accomplishments, her most recent being as a landscape designer. Her memorial was a Buddhist 49th day after death service and we got to chant. Bayliss had people over to his house after and it was lovely to hang out with some old friends and experience the peace Kathy created in her own backyard.

    We spent this night at Hal and Ricki's back in LA, right next door to where Harry lived for many years. This was the first my mood started to lift because I did not have to pretend I was feeling anything but grumpy and I could solicit advice about how they dealt with being out of sorts with each other. Ricki seemed to think that I am a control freak which of course is not true, I just always know the best way to do something. There's a difference isn't there? What???

    Anyway, enough of this soul searching, you've probably stopped reading anyway. I am all better now and on Monday we moved to an RV place in Malibu for the next three nights, 12/11 through 12/13. Yummy. Don't hate on us although without my knowledge Harry did send a picture of me in the sunshine on a day when Ashfield was getting more snow. That was a low blow.
