Exploring Th Area and Still Waiting On Duties

This was taken while we were at the Spinaker Restraunt in Sausalito on our way back to China Camp the evening before we moved.


Here in the Delta there are many marinas and lots of boats moored in them. There are also stores and restaurants nearby for those that choose to frequent them.  Some people live onboard their boats and have cars or bikes to get around.

I've met a few people at the senior center in Rio Vista, the closest town.  On Fridays, some women meet to work on knitting and crocheting.etc.  I have been there a few times and then stayed for lunch. I've also attended another group that meets at a senior residential community just west of Rio Vista.  They also work on needle projects.  They seem to be a fun group.  One of the women has invited me as her guest, so I will probably attend there on Mondays.  I'm just trying to keep busy and get involved with other artists.

When not exploring the area, I try to get some painting done.  This one is of Angel not wanting to get up.  She likes to sleep in.

After being here for several weeks, they finally found something for me to do, painting signs with contact information to add to the signs by the road.  It has taken me a week to finish because they wanted to change them and I had to rely on others to get materials. 

For the time being I check in to see if there is anything for me to do. I've clean the restrooms (light cleaning) and made a Mail box for residents and  Workampers and cleaned the clubhouse.  That's about all that I've done so far.  They tell me that when the season starts, we will be very busy.  The season usually starts Memorial Day weekend and goes through Labor Day and into September.I will probably work every Saturday and Sunday.

As far as the weather goes, we have had a few storms that have gone through and had some rain.  Ted will fix my bedroom window that still leaks on one of his visits.  It's mainly the wind that we get here in the delta that makes me keep the awning in about half way so that I can still have a bit of cover coming through the door,  I hope that you all have been keeping warm and dry and been weathering any of those bad storms.

Thanks for visiting

I’m CA Legal and Settled Into My New Digs


This past week before moving I had to get My Spot II legal in CA.  I decided that I would switch back to CA from to TX.  I don’t see me going back to TX anytime soon and in order to renew my plates there I would have to get the MH inspected before they would send me the new registration. A couple of weeks ago I started the process and found out that I would have to get the MH smogged before I could get the new plates for CA.  I just paid for everything so that I could get it done just before I moved, as far as my driver’s licence I was able to just get a duplicate. We all know how the best laid plans work. Ted came out Wednesday after work to help me get the MH ready to move and then we went out for  dinner before he went home.  I got everything inside secured so that I could leave early Thursday morning to get it smogged and then go to the Navato DMV to finish the paperwork.  So much for the plan.  The first place that I went, he wasn’t able to smog it, so I had to find somewhere else to do it. It turned out better, because the new place was cheaper and they gave me a coupon for a free “The Works” carwash.  It was a good thing that I called the DMV to find out how long it would take and found out that it was a state holiday and they were closed.  Great!  Okay, I would have to do it on Friday.  Fortunately the MH passed the smog test.  Yea!  It was back to China Camp for the night. Thank you Jim (the other camp host) for helping me get the MH backed into the space through the gate which is a real tight fit. In the morning I left early for the DMV and was lucky that I was able to get it all done and was back to the park by 10am. I’M LEGAL!  Jim helped me again. Later that afternoon I went into the city (SF) to get Ted, so that he could help me by driving the MH while I drive the Mini. We went to have dinner at the Spinaker Restaurant in Sausalito to avoid the rush hour traffic.  We shared an excellant meal. It was early to bed and we were unhooked and gone by 7:30am and pulled into Delta Bay RV by 9:30am.

Ted taking a nap,  He worked hard getting me all set up.  thank you Ted!!!!

Later that afternoon I took him the closest BART station in Pittsburgh so that he could meet Leslie and then they would go back to the city.


The Delta is beautiful.  This is nearby off Brannan Island Road.

I think that this will be a good place to spend the summer.  I believe that I will be working in Activities 15 hours a week.  I will see Kim tomorrow to find out what my schedule will be.  If there is anyone of you out there that is looking for a place to workamp for the summer she still needs more workers.

I hope that you are all enjoying early Spring.,

Thanks for visiting
