Crystal Cove, get it? Gem of a state park? Thanks folks I’m here all week.

The campground is Moro Campground in Crystal Cove State Park near Laguna, California. It sits high above beach level, which is just across highway 1, and sports spectacular ocean views. It’s very hard to book a spot here as it is a very popular campground. There are sites with water and electric (no sewer) and there are sites without any hookups at all. There is a dump station.

The San Mateo campground is next to Camp Pendleton Marine base in San Clemente, California, and is part of San Onofre State Beach. It’s an attractive campground with lots of room between sites. There is a scenic 1.5 mile nature trail that connects the campground to Trestles Beach. A creek, San Mateo Creek, is just east of the campground and goes all the way to the ocean. It has created a wetland habitat for lots of critters, some of which are rare and/or endangered.

This is a long one that covers 2 weeks and 4 campgrounds. I tried to sum it all up as concisely as possible, but I do ramble sometimes and it’s hard to choose just a few pictures from a large collection. This post might be a good one if you are having trouble sleeping.

In July 2015 we took two weeks off and towed our Airstream up to Moss Landing, which is a little north of Monterey, California. We only towed between 200 – 300 (at most) miles a day so we made overnight stops both to and from. It’s a beautiful drive with lots to see and do.

How To Trash One Side of Your Airstream

Broken Window and Awning

It’s really quite easy. I’ve done it. Put your awning out in the rain and don’t have one end of it a lot lower than the other end. When the awning fills up with water, the awning supports will snap and the pieces attached to the spring mechanism will spin around and thrash the aluminum on the side of your trailer. It sounds like your tailer has been hit by lightning and it shakes the heck out everything. Quite exhilarating, expensive and is best experienced on the second day of your vacation. I know.
