Indian PeafowlWe arrived at Lake Solano Campground yesterday afternoon more than just a little bit frazzled from the freeway congestion of Sacramento. Lake Solano is a favorite of ours for the outstanding birding. Peafowl, as in the photo above, are so common hanging around the campsite that you might assume you were in a barnyard or a zoo. But beyond that, there is a great diversity of birds and water fowl in the riparian area and the lake itself. Once we were set up in our site, we took a long bird walk and tried to regain our composure. You can see our bird list here.
A couple of draw backs that we failed to remember about camping here, which I am writing about now to serve as a reminder, is that the TV and cell service is very poor. So poor that we could not stream Netflix. And the 30 amp electrical hook-up, at least in our site, was poor and probably only 15 amp which is a real drag when running the micro-wave. Will we be back? Probably to bird, but just during the day with camping or parking for the night in area with better cell service at least.
This morning we drove on to Pinole where Gramma Jeanette gets to spend some one-on-one time with grandson Bobby.
