Departing shots from Fiddler's Cove gave cause for anticipation of our return on 1 November for month. The Naval Base is the west coast training base for the Seals.

What should have been a 2 hour drive to Seal Beach turned into almost 4 hours due to traffic on IH5. Our campground for the next month is the Naval Weapons Station Seabreeze RV Park in Seal Beach. We stayed here in January 2013. It was then that Hope and grandsons visited us for touring Disneyland,Universal Studios,Fort MacArthur, US Iowa and Legoland. This is a very nice park..quiet and well maintained with full hookups. One of the few military parks with free laundry facilities. Has a small exchange,fitness center,walking path and is also a bird sanctuary for mainly egrets and herons. On occasion you might see a coyote in the evening. Ants are a problem due to drought so got out clorox wipes and spray,baby powder and vaseline. Also put out some traps by the jacks. Hate ants.

In the evening we drove to the hotel in San Pedro where the CDSG is staying and had a nice catered dinner. What should have been a 30 minute drive, took 2 hours due to accident on the Vincent Bridge between Long Beach and San Pedro. Tomorrow we are touring Fort MacArthur which is our 4th visit. Difference this time is access to some of the batteries.
Weather is hot and dry so haven't taken advantage of walking path.
