My poor mom is going to be upset when she sees this, and figures out I was standing very close to traffic behind me to get the shot. I think even Marie wasn't at ease until I got back in the car.
The postcards were 4 for a dollar at the gift store, which is about as good as it gets. I had to sit down and Marie went in to Olsen's and ordered. It turns out that Olsen's provided table service to the sidewalk tables. So, a cutie dressed up Danish brought our treats and coffee out to us. Marie's one request was to eat at the Danish bakery, and we did just that.

Everything worked out and this is an excellent place for us to start the Regular Season.

I woke up about 0630 and we were both slow as Uncle Joe at the Junction. Marie lied back down after breakfast while I put the tricycles away and unhooked. I've got this lower back tightness and spasm that is triggered by just the slightest lifting. Hurt all damn day.
Finally Marie decided to give it a go, so we broke camp, topped off the propane, fueled up both vehicles, filled our cuppas with DMD and I took two pieces of pizza with me as we got on I-5 by 0915.
These picture are from the first rest stop. We continued Southbound on I-5 to CA-41 to CA-46 to US-101. We fueled up and ate in Santa Maria, then finished the drive to our destination for the next 5 days, Ocean Mesa.
Ocean Mesa is about 20 miles north of Santa Barbara. I'll take pics tomorrow of our camp site and post them. We had just enough time to make camp and watch the sun set while sitting in our camp chairs. And I threw in two loads of our laundry. The wash here is $2.25, which is the most I've ever paid since I started camping 10 years ago.
We will have 4 full days in this neck of the woods. There will be more pictures.
