Malibu Sunset

Oh Malibu. How we love you! We spent a few very relaxing days atop a hill in Malibu. Our site was way up on "the point" and we had ocean views on all sides. We really love the Malibu Beach RV's spendy, but worth it. We stayed here on tour when my sister and her husband flew in to visit us.

We also had a lovely time visiting with our friends Carrie-Anne and Stephen...there is nothing better than homemade soup and great conversation!

Sometimes plans work out so perfectly, that there is no denying that God had his hand in it! I had been corresponding with a blog reader, Debi, about her new dreads and she casually mentioned that her daughter lived in the LA area and that they had room for an RV. We were far from California at the time, so I just tucked that information back in my brain.

Fast forward a few months and we were trying to decide where to fly home from, where to park the RV, etc. I remembered that Debi had said this and sure enough, her daughter was willing to house our 40 foot rolling house while we went back to the Midwest. We ended up getting really cheap tickets out of LAX, which was just a short shuttle ride from their house. The RV fit pefectly next to their it was made for that spot!

The best part is that Debi's daughter, Michelle and her husband Greg have 3 little who is the same age as Bella. When we arrived on their doorstep, those girls disappeared and only resurfaced for food! They loved playing together and we loved sharing life with this sweet family.

When we came back from the Midwest, we were able to meet Debi and her husband as well, which was a treat! Another wonderful connection made through this crazy blogging world.

I was able to reconnect one more time with Stephanie before we left at a cute coffee shop in Ventura. We had a great time talking about dreads, life on the ride, campgrounds, babies, and stuff :) We are so blessed to have dear friends all across the country. We feel at home wherever we go!

Jellyfish and Discovery

We slowly made our way down the central coast of California...from San Francisco to the Los Angeles area. One of our first stops was near Monteray Bay. We decided to check out their rather famous aquarium there and boy are we glad we did. It was AMAZING. I don't think there are many aqariums that will top this one. We had so much fun learning about jellyfish, penguins, starfish, seahorses, and more!

Then, it was on to Pismo Beach where we relaxed for a few days and took in the ocean views. Most of the time we were there it was REALLY cold and windy, but that didn't stop us from exploring the beach and discovering shells and seaweed.

We boondocked on Rincon Parkway near Ventura. They call it a "campground", but it's basically just old Hwy 1 with parking lines drawn on it for RV's. Our door opened right to the crashing waves of the ocean...amazing! Waking up to that sound is like a dream.

While we were there, the Lende Family came to visit us.They have also just recently transitioned into a life on the road and they happened to be in Ventura at the time. We stayed with them in Eureka during the tour. It was so much fun to re-connect. Just a few weeks after this photo, Stephanie dreaded her hair too!

After our stay near the ocean, we headed inland to park the RV for the holidays Camarillo...
