May to July 2015

In May, I flew to Vermont for my mother's 85th birthday party/family-reunion. All my siblings, and many of their children were there. It was a great time. Oddly though, I have no pictures.

After the birthday reunion, I mainly stayed close to home-base so I could get some chores done. Most stops were either places I'd already been, or just places to park for a while. Here is the unadorned list:

Santa Margarita KOA
El Chorro Regional Park
Bay Pines RV park
Rancho Colina RV park
Morro Strand State Park
Flying Flags RV park
Lopez Lake
El Chorro Regional Park
Lake Nacimiento Resort
Salinas/Monterey KOA
El Chorro Regional Park
Morro Strand RV park
Avila/Pismo Beach KOA
Moss Landing KOA

That takes me halfway through July. Then I headed for Oregon, which is in the next installment.

I've got a few pictures from the sites listed above.

At Santa Margarita I took a few pictures of the lake, and more pictures from a hike nearby.

El Chorro Regional Park has a really nice trail, but my only pictures are from the botanical gardens that are part of the park.

From my Bay Pines stop, I found a nice trail that goes through a pine forest with really large pine trees. The trail also goes to the top of Black Hill. One of the pictures from the hill top shows the RV park.

At Morro Strand State Park

There was a nice path at Avila/Pismo Beach. It's paved for bikes, but very nice for walking too. And there's a good restaurant along the way.

Moss Landing has a pretty harbor area and a nice path along the beach and estuary. And a great Mexican restaurant with kind of a silly name, but great food and margaritas.
