We are in the middle of our long discussed trip to San Diego.  The fact that we are paying tons for this rv space is certainly not reflected in the wifi they offer!  It stinks.  Over the weekend it was totally impossible to get on; now that the place is half-empty you are only dropped every five minutes or so.  The name of this joint is Mission Bay RV Resort.  The good news is it is on Mission Bay.  That is very good.  Also there is a lovely walk you can take along the bay shore.  The rest of the story isn't so great.  First of all, it is a parking lot. There are a few trees planted between the sites but otherwise it is total blacktop.  We had to ask two people to move their cars so we could get into our site so it's pretty tight.  It is also a very expensive parking lot > $400 for a week.  There is also a four page list of rules.  We don't usually have much trouble with rv park rules and we aren't having trouble here but it is annoying to have all these rules.  There were lots of kids here over the weekend but they were pretty well behaved.  The park has a small private beach and between time at the beach and riding their bikes/skateboards; they were tired out.  The fact that the park has 24 hour security and lots of it probably has something to do with it as well.

San Diego is as beautiful as ever and, of course, it's great to see number 1 son & his Significant Other.  We visited the Birch Aquarium yesterday.  It's a very nice facility; a little expensive but nice.  They had a large exhibit on Global Warming as well that was quite interesting.  We also strolled around La Jolla; just to see how the other half lives!  I've always heard about artists living in garrets; the ones who sell their work in La Jolla must have really nice garrets!  We've also been working on trying as many restaurants as possible.  Tough work but someone has to do it.

We've got a couple days left before returning home.  The heat wave is affecting the entire southwest except for this little part next to the ocean.  It's only about 80F here; in ten miles we'll gain 20F and it will stay that warm for the remainder of our trip.  Sounds fun! 

Have a good one!

I love San Diego, specially the food! I have heard about your RV park and actually heard the sites are more expensive than you report. Maybe there are waterfront sites that cost both arms and a leg!

Have fun!
