We were not sad to see the back of our car park home, which, despite being free, was not too enjoyable and it was noisy all night, so we are pretty tired.
Today we are heading for Palm Springs about 3 hours from San Diego.
We do another big food shop at an enormous Walmart. We finally purchase a map so we know where we are going and to help with the planning. The other significant purchase is a local mobile phone so we can call ahead to campsites for our trip.
We hadn't booked anywhere for tonight but were in search of civilisation - full hook up, showers, laundry and wifi. We find the Happy Traveller RV in Palm Springs which ticks all of the boxes, so we book in for two nights. Check us out being all laid back on the planning! Ok more disorganised than laid back.
It is BOILING. We saw a temperature gauge that said 95 degrees. It's like sitting in a sauna. Another reason for needing a campsite so we can run the aircon in the van.
Travel was all fine. Best moment of the day was when Taya was struggling to settle to sleep at lunchtime in her car seat and Dylan started singing twinkle twinkle little star to get her to go to sleep. It worked in seconds. Ridiculously cute.
Emma cooks up a Pasta Bolognese for dinner. Then we all shower before the kidlets bedtimes. We need easy dinner ideas - the criteria: must be quick, only require a hob or microwave, use only a small frying pan, toaster, or saucepan x 2, and be reasonably healthy..... Any help gratefully received.
Dylan now knows the words to Ant and Dec's 'let's get ready to rumble', Rich asked him if he was all ready after their showers, and he reels of "let's get ready to rumble, get ready, get steady and rumble everybody rumble. Watch us wreck the mic". Poor lad what are we teaching him?!
Rich and Emma sit outside at their picnic table - see we have all the mod cons tonight, and drink an oversized bottle of wine. It's still hot late at night, must still be about 70 degrees.
