Lakeside CA (Lake Jennings)

We left Malibu at about 12 pm today and headed south through all those famous California cities: Venice, Santa Monica, Marina del Ray and the really fancy LAX terminal area. After about 1.5 hours of pretty intense city driving, we headed slightly inland at Redondo Beach to follow a bigger freeway south to the San Diego area. Firstly though we made a stop in Oceanside to Alan's Bike Shop to see if they could fix a little problem with my bike. They are an Electra dealer so we thought they could help us, but since we bought our bikes in Canada, we will have to wait til we get home.

Now we are at Lakeside which is about 15 miles east of San Deigo. This is the best camping spot we have seen! Lake Jennings Park. Just lovely sites. You will see on tomorrow's post as we got set up in the dark, but we have a GORGEOUS view of the lake (actually a "dammed" lake I believe). We plan on just hanging out here for 2-3 days now. The big city stuff is enough for us to drive through, don't need to hang around it much!! Sometimes it was 6 lanes in one direction! YIKES!!!


So that's it. A bit of a boring day to report to you all.
Right now, there is the most amazing moon hanging right above us, reflecting off Lake Jennings. We hope all our family & friends can see it too. Here is a HUGE hug and kiss to all our family (who have to tolerate those sorts of things) and the same to friends (who sometimes just pretend to tolerate those sorts of things). To all our new followers/friends, a big thanks for coming along on our ride!!

Now....time for tea and check us out tomorrow evening!!
