Santee Lakes 2009

We left Carlsbad at 12:00 Noon and headed for Santee Lakes. The Convair Camping Club has their monthly outing here.
It is hot here. We are running the air conditioner in the motorhome.
Going 40 miles inland makes a lot of difference temperature wise. It was OK though in the shade, with a little breeze.
At 5:15 PM we went to Mimi’s restaurant for dinner. Some members of the club, who do not participate at this outing, joined us. We had our own room.

This morning Doreen and I drove to the Mission Trails Regional Park. First we went to the Visitor Center and looked at the displays.Several school classes were also there.

Then we drove to the Old Mission Dam. The dam was build by the Kumeyaay Indians under supervision of the Padres. The dam made it possible to have the San Diego Mission and farm land to support the mission.

After lunch I went to the swimming pool. Arlene and Howard were also there. We had a nice conversation.
At 5:00 PM we had Happy Hour and at 6:00 PM dinner. George grilled Bratwurst and members of the club brought different side dishes and dessert. It was a very good meal.

At the camp fire everybody told an embarrassing story. We had a lot of laughs.
The campground has free wireless Internet access. I finally got the password.

This morning we went to Kaiser Permanente, our Health Maintenance Organization.
Doreen got her boobs squeezed. She claims, if men would have to go through this with one of their private parts, there would be a less hurtful machine.
When we came back we took a nap. Then I went to the swimming pool.

For dinner we had crazy tacos.
At the camp fire we enjoyed root beer floats. The evenings out here are just wonderful. It cools off about 5:00 PM.

At 6:30 AM I went for a walk around the lakes. It was still a bit foggy.
There are several small man made lakes. Some of the lakes have islands with picnic areas. Other islands have no bridges and are places for the birds to have their nests.

At 9:00 AM we headed for home.A few minute before 10:00 AM we arrived at the Costco in Carlsbad and got gasoline for the motorhome.
This was a wonderful outing
