Today, Dick and I stoped by Costco on our way home from dropping off our RV rental. We had Wallace with us, so one person needed to go in while the other stayed with Wallace. Dick went in, and I decided to take Wallace in a little walk and check out the nature trail.
It was a nice little walk that goes from the back of one side of Costco to the other. We saw several geese, and even saw a skunk!! (We did not continue in the direction of the skunk!)
It was a very nice little walk to be able to do while we waited at Costco. 😊
Wallace doesn't love the drive in the RV, he was panting for a while when we first took off, but I sat with him to calm him down, and I think the Dramamine kicked in. He's been sleeping for a little while now.
Dick says driving the RV isn't bad. It a little loud and rattle-ly up here in the cockpit, but we're getting used to it.
I'm very susceptible to mosquito bites, so I had fallen asleep covering my head except for the side of my face (where it bit me).
The bites weren't too swollen yesterday. I figured there wasn't much blood in the areas where it had bit me so maybe my reaction wouldn't be so bad.
Unfortunately, they are more swollen and itchy today. Nice.
...and not so pretty.
I look like I have a goose egg on my forehead and a big swollen red bump under my eye.
Luckily, the only plans I have for the day is the drive home.

MIke and Wendy own their own Airstream and have a large pick up truck to tow it. They travel in it frequently and offered to come and help arrange this trip with us.
I'm so glad they did. We've had a great time together, and their guidance in all things RV-related has been so helpful.
It has also been helpful that they have taken us around in their truck for our day trips, enabling us to keep our RV parked at the campsite.
We've been having lunch together, and making dinners with each other each night. Tonight we had drinks and dinner at their Airstream and played board games after. So much fun.
(The first photo is of us having Gin & Tonics at our place.)
Thanks, MIke & Wendy!! Looking forward to our next adventure together!!
This place is so unique, and is such a throwback to the 1960s, and I just love it. There are 110 guest rooms, all uniquely decorated to specific themes. They sold postcards in the lobby so you could see photos of all the rooms.
The staff was very nice and welcomed Wallace to explore with us.

Unfortunately, the Neptune Pool was under restoration this year, but it was kind of neat to see it drained as well.
The grounds are beautiful, and the interior was as odd and eclectic as I remembered.
It was a beautiful day with pretty clear views, and warm temps without being hot.
I'm really glad we were able to come!
