Our blog is to keep family and friends informed of our motorhome journeys.
We have dreamed of this for many years and finally our dream has come true.
We are looking forward to many happy miles ahead.

Arrival Fiddler's Cove Navy RV Park-Coronado

5-10 December 2016

Our last day before departing we had lunch with Rose Mary and Chuck at Mimi's Cafe and in the evening went with Pat, Darwin, Donna and Larry to Ruby Tuesday's. Got some great pictures of sunset.

We stopped in Barstow for the night at Shady Lane RV park. After checking in we drove to Edwards AFB about 60 miles away. Were not too impressed with campground..spaces very close and base is in a remote area. The base is home to the Air Force Flight Test Center.

Our drive to Coronado took us south on IH 15 to Coronado and our home for the next month at Fidder's Cove Navy RV park. This is our 3 stay here. The campground overlooks the bay and Navy shipyard. Rates have increased from $30 to $35, but that is still reasonable for the area. Noticed the Osprey family is back.

 The USS Zumwalt came into port today. This is the Navy's newest and most advanced guided missile destroyer costing $4.4 billion. It is 610 ft long and has a crew of 143. Very impressive.

We went to Flag Pole Buddy for some parts for the pole. John spent most of day working on it and hopefully now we can leave it up. Had a problem with light and needed some extra connections and adapters.

10 December

Today is a trip to the beach..something I've been looking forward to since last year. Weather in the 60's with slight breeze and some clouds. We prefer the North Island Naval Station Beach. Found a dozen sand dollars. Will take back to Nellis and give to the gals with more to be added.
