Sunday morning, August 23, we left the Russian River Thousand Trails RV Park in Cloverdale about 9am. Acey’s mileage 66,172.2 and Thor has 71,195miles. About an hour south, the smoke from the fires was quite evident.
On the drive south, as we crossed the San Francisco Bay on I-580, we could barely see the bridge!
and could hardly see the water! The smoke from the fires was pretty thick!
We arrived at Coyote Valley at 1pm. We got set up and had lunch. Chuck was able to see all the procedures we go through to close up and prepare to move – and then set up again. Not exactly what he had in mind when he planned the weekend visit – but then again, we had not planned to move either! However, the smoke from the fires had gotten pretty bad yesterday afternoon, and the ash floating in the air was getting a bit more evident. We found there was a craft brewery not far from us – so we went out for some brews at Kelly Brewing.
Monday after breakfast, Chuck left for the airport about 8am. We sure enjoyed having him with us! He had been watching the reports on the 2 tropical storms and everything looked ok for his flight home.. He arrived safely home in Baton Rouge with light rain falling.
Since we have full hookups here, we did a few loads of laundry, Linda worked on the blog for the past week and after lunch, we went to the pool for a bit.
Tuesday morning it was a fairly clear day as we prepared move again – to another Thousand Trails park not far from here in Morgan Hill. Coyote Valley as basically a parking lot style park with no shade, but the pool was open and we had full hookups!
