After border crossing we move on to San Diego the second largest city in California. One of the most important employers is the US Navy who moved their headquarters to this place after Pearl Harbor in 1941.
The giant aircraft carrier USS Midway at the harbor you cannot overlook. Since 2004 it’s a museum and open for the public. You can easily stroll around for hours and wonder how more than 4000 people lived here and how the kitchen delivered over 13000 meals per day. Late afternoon we visit our friends Brittni and Josh which we have first met 2016 in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico when they were travelling with a Sprinter Camper. We’ve spent a nice evening together and had a lot of fun. Thanks folks for the great time. All the best and take care.
Our son Felix joins us for a visit and we pick him up at the airport in San Jose del Cabo. He likes surfing and we find good waves East of Cabo where we spend a couple of days on a lonely beach.
The weather is great and Felix can indulge his passion. Every evening we make a big campfire whereby wood collecting isn’t that easy but Karin certainly has two strong boys who get the fire wood also from far away.
Welcome back to Mexico where we want to escape from the cold and stay for the winter. We drive to Puerto Penasco and rest a few days before we continue our journey down to Guaymas.
We go to the RV park in San Carlos where we’ve been already last year when we moved North. From there we want to take the ferry to the Baja California but it’s very windy and so we must wait a couple of days. There is not much to see in this area and we spend most of the time relaxing and eating Mexican food in the various restaurants near-by.
Our home holiday was nice but a little bit too short. However now we are back in the States. We found MOMO in good shape and after our luggage was delivered which was lost during the transfer in Amsterdam we could continue our journey.
From LA we drive via Palm Springs to the Joshua Tree NP. Unfortunately, we have overseen that it’s the long Thanksgiving weekend which obviously brings every American on the road. The park entrance was packed with tourists and of course no single camping spot was left over. So we decided to hang around for a while in the near-by Western city Pioneer town until the rush is over.
After our short trip to Canada with many visits at friends and relatives we take the ferry from Vancouver Island to Port Angeles. Our destination is the Olympic NP in the far North-Western region of the USA.
Border crossing is easy and after an excellent Italian dinner we start our journey the next morning. Weather is an important factor while visiting the Olympic National Park where most regions are in the rain forest. But we are lucky and can enjoy a clear blue sky. At Rialto beach we admire the wild coast with a vast quantity of drift wood and a few miles further down the road we stay a couple of days in the Indian reservation of La Push. The beach here is endlessly and one can walk for days from bay to bay.
