Though we just arrived Tuesday, based upon what we’ve seen so far, the Seaside Leisure Time/Thousand Trails preserve could quickly become our favorite in the system.
The park is clean, the staff is friendly, the RV sites are roomy, and we have very good 3G and 4G Verizon service. And the campground is close to everything and only one mile from the beach. We’re looking forward to the next two weeks. If we were ever going to get a seasonal RV site, it would be here.
Seaside is a fun town, whether you’re browsing the funky little shops along Broadway, eating in one of the many restaurants, walking the beach, or just people watching at the Turnaround.
When we found a neat shop called The Man Store, I needed to check it out! They had all kind of guy goodies, from Harley Davidson signs, metal models of classic cars, model motorcycles, pocket knives, baseball caps and a lot more. Probably what men will like most at The Man Store are the two very friendly, very pretty young ladies working there.
After mailing off some orders yesterday, we went to the beach to fly my Prism Snapshot 1.9 speed foil. The wind was very light at the campground and I didn’t think we’d have much luck, but down at the beach it was blowing nicely, probably about 10 – 12 mph. Just about perfect for the two line Snapshot.
The flying was much easier than last week at Long Beach. The kite jumped right into the sky and I got over an hour of good flying.
And believe me, working the lines in a stiff breeze is a workout!
I told Terry to be sure to get my good side. I guess this is it.
I crashed a half dozen times, which was far less than the first time out, but I think I’m starting to get the hang of it. I was able to make it climb straight up, fly sideways, do loops, and skid from side to side.
Eventually the wind died down, and the heavy cloud cover chilled the air enough that it was time to go home.And I was ready to call it quits for the day.
It’s supposed to rain the next couple of days, and if it does, we’ll probably stay home and I’ll get some writing done. Our friends Wil and Cyndy Olsen arrived here yesterday morning, and we’ll try to get together with them and Dave and Lynn Cross for dinner if everybody’s schedules work.
If you’re having a rainy day somewhere, nothing helps pass the time like a good book. End of the Road is a great collection of FREE short stories from some of my best author friends. Get yourself a copy, and please, after you’ve read it, leave a review.
