We planned on staying San Onofre Park but it was full so San Mateo was recommended. We were happy with San Mateo - it was little and had private sites.

... down in 70 degree weather looking at palm trees all decorated and fake snow on people lawns, but it was a blast and am so glad we got to experience that in for our first Christmas here.

And for any of you wondering what that term "Boondocking" means, it is when you dry or disperse camp on public land, in federal parks or wherever allowed out on your own in most cases ...
... So for two days we could not use our toilet until the handy man showed up to get us out of our predicament. Well, the next thing you know, the toilet was in our shower as he retrieved my shampoo.
Finally, after all that, there is one good outcome. I had put the cap on so tight because I didn't want it spilling into my suitcase, that no water (or anything else) got into the bottle. So with a quick bleach and disinfectant my shampoo is ready to go! ...
