After flip-flopping between possible camping options I finally headed out within 30 minutes of making a choice. Traffic wasn't bad considering construction and time being late afternoon. Arrived at campground and found a car parked in my site and the driver was not around. Didn't think the turn into the curved pull-through completely through and quickly found the turn was too sharp for the TT. With help I got out of the site and went site seeing as I made a figure 8 so I could come in from the other direction. By this time the car was moved but nit before then driver mentioning something about leaving her number. She moved the car to the camp host site across from me.
Had a great and relaxing time camping on the beach. However there was more train activity than previous time. Around midnight a freight train or two would came by. It was pretty loud in my TT but friends were tent camping. I kidded about shining headlights onto the tent next time the freight train came through. LOL add in some wheel squealing as the train slowed down it was pretty much like one of "I Love Lucy" shows. Joan mentioned this morning that there wasn't any loud trains last night. When I told her otherwise and about my window rattling her husband said he woke up and thought it was an earthquake.
Arrived at the next campground early. I was due here yesterday but stayed an extra night at the other place. Made good time setting up. But when I was almost finished with the sewer hose I heard my truck door open and then slammed. I saw a few kids and thought they were mistaken about the truck. As I walked to the truck the back door was opened and slammed shut again. The kids laughed about it before heading away quickly. I took a second to make sure my laptop was still there before heading over to speak with the parents. I followed the kids. As I was speaking with one mother another woman came out and no, the kids just arrived and hadn't left the site. Finally the first lady explained to her that she left the boys out to walk to camp which included walking past my truck.
One of the boys was asked by the second woman if he had opened my truck door and after a pause said "no". I don't want trouble so I apologized if he or his friends did not do so but if they did please not do it again. I also included that had they not been at the truck when the two driver's side doors were opened they would have been connected to it. (Mom might believe him but he & I know otherwise. I went back to my site and got the last item out before locking the truck.
I'm enjoying the ocean view and looking forward to another campfire.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
