Off to California

We are off on our way for a three week trip to California to visit Jeanette’s son Tony and his wife Maggie and their baby boy Bobby.  We will be meeting up with them next weekend at a KOA campground on Monterey Bay near Watsonville. Because the temperatures along the I-5 corridor in Northern California are in the hundreds, we have chosen to leave a few days early and travel down the coast line where the temps are predicted to be in the 60 and 70’s.

Today was just a short little jaunt of 60 miles from our home in Elkton to Bluebill Lake Campground as shown in the photo.  Bluebill Lake is located just north of Coos Bay in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.  It’s a favorite of ours that we have returned to many times to enjoy camping, hiking and birding.  Today did not disappoint us in any way; we are the only campers in this clean quite 18 site campground, and because it’s a federal campground, and I have a Senior Pass, it only costs 10 dollars to spend the night.  We had a great bird walk this afternoon and now are enjoying some quiet time in the sunny mild temperatures.  If you look closely at the photo you may be able to see a little Douglas Squirrel running across the pavement just in front of the motor home.
