Visiting Friends in San Diego

San Diego always holds a special place in my memories.  It is the place I was able to get an escape from the very taxing daily routine of raising our first kiddo.  Since the company Justin worked for was based in San Diego, our oldest (as a baby) and I used to periodically tag along on work trips.  It always felt so nice to get out of the norm and see new things.  It’s also nice to come back to visit and see some friends Justin used to work with.

Our Stay in San Felipe, Mexico

Our revised plans were to stay in Mexico for two weeks rather than two months.  We knew the first week we would stay at Victor’s RV Park (in San Felipe) on the Sea of Cortez, however, we weren’t sure where we would stay the second week of our trip.  We toyed with the idea of cutting west to check out Ensenada then going back out through Tecate (to avoid going through Tijuana as we heard this not only is a very busy border crossing but not the safest area either).  In the end we decided to stay in the same place for 2 weeks because of the great location, walkability, having kids for the girls to play with there and to decrease driving.

Mittry Lake BLM in Yuma, AZ

We were hoping to meet some more of the Fulltime Families a couple days before the rally since we figured it might be a little overwhelming to meet up with 23 other families at the same time. Therefore, we headed to Yuma to camp on BLM land at Mittry Lake outside of Yuma AZ (near where the rally was due to start in a few days). It worked out nicely that there were two families there when we arrived and another two arrived for the last two days of boon docking.
