and we're off!

Our next adventure starts Monday when we take off for a local beach front state park. The Strand between Coronado and Imperial Beach on the Southern California Coast.

We've been home from Colorado for three weeks during which time I've attended the bead retreat of a friend which was held in San Diego.  It's rare for me to be on the other side of the table so to speak, but I took three classes with three top talented bead teachers and enjoyed each one.

The airstream was off being 'diagnosed' although Mark is a very thorough diagnoser himself and wrote a paragraph of his findings for each of the problems we've experienced.  Sadly we needed to pick up the airstream to go on our next outing so not much was resolved, although one of the two fantastic fans was restored to working order.

The fridge has trouble switching between electric and propane resulting in a very warm fridge between sites.  The water heater leaks all over the bedroom solution  yet, the second fantastic fan needs to be replaced and the converter which overheats and causes the fan to run continuously remains unresolved..  The factory solution is to install more vents which we find unsatisfactory.

Nothing is unsafe or earth shattering but with a brand new airstream we would like things to work.

We're hanging out in the airstream tonight in the driveway because we miss it.

We'll be so happy to be back in our cozy environment.  We'll be posting photos of our beach location and enjoying the surf.

We spent time perusing our local San Diego aistream group's rally plans and hope to enjoy a side plan in February when we also plan to go to Tucson.  2016 will be the year of the airstream with a long summer trip planned up the West Coast and ending in Seattle where I will teach at Fusion Beads.  I'm also hoping for the Albuquerque balloon festival next fall.  Life is good!

  1. I went to this place in first time with my husband on Tuesday night after work. The inside of the event venues was quit big and had enough seats to sit and nice bar area. We had a few things, along with drinks and it was all good!
