Holidays on the Road

Finding accommodations for holidays weekends is a challenge. We have passed July 4th, Labor Day, and Columbus Day while on the road. All have presented some problems -- took much searching and many calls to find availability and where we ended up was always NOT our first choice.

So, where will we spend Thanksgiving? Yes, we should have thought about that awhile ago...for now, we have decided to extend our time here in Morro Bay. Tangent -- this is a lovely area. The beach, small town, friendly people, good bicycle path into town, casual waterfront dining. Most of the year daily temps are between the 50s and low 70s. As an older gent said to us earlier this evening -- where else can you get an ocean front cottage this cheaply? He and his wife and her two sisters and their children, etc all have motorhomes and condo in this region.

Oh, back to Thanksgiving plans. We could only reserve here till Thanksgiving morning; they have no openings for the holiday weekend. As I begun to check around places claimed that they were all full for turkey day and the days following -- and reservations had been made 2 months, 6 months, a year in advance. So we "should" have made reservations before we even left NY!!

Anyway, we did get reservations further down the road at a larger campground that only had spaces left with no hookups available. No problem. We can be self-contained and they do have amenities and necessities including showers and limited wifi.

Got Thanksgiving dinner reservations at a restaurant within walking distance from that campground. I don't think we want to cook a turkey on board.

As the holiday approaches I know that we have a lot to be grateful for...
and we will miss our usual connections with family and friends!!
