Well we are back from our trip to California. We left the Monday after Christmas trying to get home before New Years. We arrived home the Friday after New Years. Part of it had to do with not being able to leave before noon, because Mr BC had to pick up parts at Moss Motors, for the Triumph, he is restoring. He thought as long as he was in town......This put us in Los Angeles, right in the middle of evening traffic.....really bad traffic and we it was bad all the way to Victorville. Essentially we lost a whole day, thank you very much.
When we decided to stop early the next day, because we were beat. The nice lady at the KOA Kampground, encouraged us to go on well past Flagstaff, as they were expecting a massive weather storm and might not get out the next day. From then on we were out in front of winter storms the rest of the way home. After the last trip to CA in the winter and this we have decided we are not winter campers.....Though the weather while we were in CA was fantastic. Getting home is problematic.
As I said the weather was beautiful in Carpenteria, where we camped at the State Beach. This was our view out our front door.
A trip down the beach takes you to the naturally occurring surface asphalt the Chumash Indians used to seal their canoes. Petroleum seeps are still visible along the beach bluffs at Tar Pits Park on the campground beach of Carpinteria State Beach. *Wickipedia
Christmas was fun with the boys...both have grown so tall and I love that I can hold a rather grown up conversation with almost 6 year old Лука, He is as patient as he can be most of the time, with his little brother. He got a bigger bicycle this year.
It was the only thing that, almost 3 year old Caшa, didn't claim.....Mine, mine, mine!
Everyone stayed healthy while we were there so thankfully we made it home healthy. Though, Thursday all day, Mr BC was laid low with a very upset stomach bug. I did not know he had all that in him! It has not progressed to anything else so maybe it was something he ate.
