Nearing The End Of The Season


It is nearing the end of the summer season.  All the programs are scheduled through Labor Day.  That’s all that I have to plan for crafts for the kids and pick out some movies for Movie Night.  I’m not sure what I will be doing after that as far as activities are concerned, but we will be having a swap meet of some sort towards the end of September and are planning that.

My plans are to be here until some time in October.  Once the current Camp Hosts leave I can move in to their space at China Camp, where I was last winter.


In the meantime here in the Delta, the weather has been quite nice.  The last few days it has gotten up to the mid 80’s with the nights in the mid 50’s.  or me that’s perfect weather.  Before that we had several days in the 100”s. not very comfortable.  I am so glad that electricity is included, as  the A/C was on even when I wasn’t home, Angel was. 

I did have to go to the DMV in Vacaville to renew my driver’s license and the plates for my Mini Cooper.  For some reason there wasn’t a front plate on the car when I bought it last August and I was lucky that I never got a ticket for it, so I had to get a brand new set of plates with a new number.  Going to the DMV is not one of my favorite things to do.  I would have had to wait until next week to get an appointment, so took my chances and got there by 9:00am.  Because they were shorthanded,  I didn’t get out of there until nearly 2:00pm.  I also (unexpectedly) had to take a test (I passed) and get a new picture taken.  Oh well, you do what you’ve have to do. 

It seems like every thing that I have to do, I have to go at least 30 + miles, to do it. Where I’m at is that far from any place that has all the stores and facilities that I go to in any direction.  There are also bridges that have to be crossed that you have to wait for when there is a boat going under, even the sailboats or other boats that have antennas. 


Another place that I have to got to at least once a month is to Benicia where I have to check on the artwork that is there on consignment.  I usually go on Thursdays because I can actually paint in open studio.  I did another self portrait in watercolor.  When I got home I continued going through my STUFF, trying to get ready for the swap meet.  I want to purge about half of my things.  Recently, I have been thinking about downsizing again to a class C.  My thinking is that I would be able to camp host in more State or Federal Parks where they have smaller sites and if I have less stuff to put away I can move more often.  This might take me awhile (years?), I still have to figure out how to do it (??$$$??).

At least that’s what I’ve been doing.  I hope that you all are having a great summer.

Thanks for visiting
