Each year since leaving San Diego Hans' former band The Sand Devils has reunited and played a gig or two. On January 17th they played to a packed house at The Tower Bar, a funky dive bar in City Heights.
|The Sand Devils were followed by the awesome Jason Lee and the R.I.P.tides, whose act included gogo dancers!|
The Sand Devils also played at a yard party at the home of guitarist Ran.
We've done lots of walking along Mission Bay right from our RV site, and the bird watching is bountiful.
|Love the Long-billed Curlew...|
|I'm fascinated by how deep they forage in the tidal flats.|
A walk along the cliffs of Del Mar can be an exhilarating experience:
Our last month in San Diego was spent at Mission Bay RV Resort (our third year in a row doing this). My original review is still valid (you can read it here), but I'll add that the Verizon signal is okay, the RV park wifi is pretty much nonexistent, and even though we like staying in one of the four sites adjacent to the grassy patch next to the restroom (which means you have only one neighbor) people do relieve their dogs on that grass! That said, the access to beach and bay activities is excellent and, for us, worth it.
We'll surely miss the beauty of the San Diego coastline but something tells me we'll have plenty of fabulous sunsets such as the one below and some great adventures along the way...stay tuned!
I want to give a little congratulatory shout out to our friends Zsuzsa and Tom. We met them in Palm Springs where they were anxiously awaiting the sale of their condo so they could activate their full time RV dream...fast forward a couple of months and the condo has sold and they are currently in South Dakota where they have purchased a truck and await their new 5th wheel! I can feel their excitement all the way out here in California! Can't wait to meet them on the road some day, somewhere!
