For the first time this vacation, I woke up on my own, when I was ready to. No one hollering at me to GET UP. I went in and called Whiskeytown and found that their RV sites were basically in the parking lot and I wasn’t remotely interested in that. So I did some more searching and found a resort on Shasta Lake and they had plenty of space. Even sites overlooking the lake, with power, water and WiFi internet service. I jumped on the chance, packed up and headed out. Mom and Jimmy followed me up to check out the place. They helped me get all set up and then hung out for a few minutes. I took this photo with Mom’s camera phone. Poor Shasta is so low. You can’t even get to it from our campground and the nearest marina is several miles away. Too far to walk with the dog on a hot asphalt road.
This is the view from my chair outside my RV where I am currently typing. With the exception of I-5 not far away and the semi-trucks barreling down the freeway, it’s a nice place. They have a pool for me to cool off in and hopefully, a few places to take Roxie for a walk.
After patroling the area, there really isn’t anywhere for me to walk Roxie so this place gets a 1 on the scale for walking trails. I think I’m gonna start a rating system for RV camping with a dog.
I spent the afternoon lounging around the site, reading, and napping. I took a dip or two in the pool to cool off and then lounged around some more. It was great!
My mom arrived bright and early Wednesday morning to spend the rest of the week with me. We hung out, talked, napped, lounged and swam in the pool. Mom made a nice dinner which we ate outside overlooking the lake, or what there is of it. We watched the weather report where it showed thunderstorms coming in from the west. We saw the clouds and some lightning strikes over the mountains. We battend down the hatches and waited for the storm to hit, but it stayed west on the other side of the mountain. According to the weather report, more storms are in store for Thursday.
