This is the view from my recliner at our campsite in the Sycamore Loop at Santee Lakes. You can see Buster’s nose in the corner from his position of sitting on my lap. Soon after taking this photo we moved inside to the comforts of air conditioning. Our thermometer read 89 in the shade; too hot. It is expected to cool in the next few days and we will be more comfortable. We are not complaining, as we feel very fortunate to be here in this amazing park, particularly after yesterday’s experience of driving through LA. I referred to it as driving through the belly-of-the-beast. We arrived here pretty frazzled yesterday afternoon, but we have settled in today and are looking forward to our stay of a week or so.
