Surf City Weekend

(Huntington Beach Pier)

Last weekend we spent time with the family in the RV in Surf City Huntington Beach. It was our last RV outing for a while, since the chief had to have rotator cuff surgery. He won't be able to drive the RV for a few months.We "camped" right next to the boardwalk which runs along the edge of the big, sandy beaches that go for miles along the Pacific Coast. We stayed for three nights at the City of Huntington Beach's Sunset Vista Camping Facility, which is in the midst of the public parking lots. It is open for RV camping from October 1 through May 31st each year, offers water and electricity, and one of the most spectacular ocean views in Southern California!(The view from our RV front window)

Nicole, David and Gigi stayed with us in the "home mome" for two nights. Gigi just loves riding in Papa's "home mome." Alex and Angelina came down for dinner on Thursday and on Friday night we had some of the kids' friends come for a BBQ and bon fire on the beach (too cold for me, though, so I stayed in the "home mome" with Gigi). David's parents joined us on Saturday, for a bike ride down the boardwalk and dinner.
The weather turned out to be really nice the entire weekend. We had clear blue skies and sunny days mixed with a few clouds and lots of ocean winds. We took lots of walks down the boardwalk and out on the HB Pier, where we watched surfers riding the big waves. All in all it was another great weekend in the RV!

I spent most of my youth on that beach....such happy memories!!! Hope the Chief gets better soonest and if he needs any encouragement he can give Jim a call. It is survivable...though probably doesn' t feel like it at the start. XXX Annie
