New truck for us! We went from a half-ton to a three-quarter, so now it’s time to take a little trip! Deciding to go to Seacliff we made a reservation for one night (it’s all we could get) back in October and chose to try our luck at the lottery for the week after Christmas. We dewinterized the cloud, packed and headed south to Brannan Island SP on Tuesday. We got there in the dark and tried to get water, however the faucet by the dump station was dry, so went into the campground to find water and came up empty.
Ended up parking for the night and filling
the water containers we carry via the faucets
in the campground. Up early, made coffee
to go, dumped and drove to Santa Cruz
getting there at 11:30 in time to put our
Five open sites with five in the lottery all but one were for the week. We were drawn last and luck was with us and we got a site for four nights! It’s tight quarters but our neighbors were great!
We spent New Year’s Eve having champagne
and hors d’oeuvre with our neighbors and then
walking the strand stopping to chat at various
fire ring establishments. It was fun, spontaneous
and a great way to start 2017!
