Friday: (11/07) We started the morning with desert at Jerry's Nugget Casino in North Las Vegas after an early departure from our camp at Lake Mead. After breakfast, I headed over to Napa Pottery shop to get some planters we had seen earlier. Lo an Dawn were off to get a book Dawn had seen at a thrift shop. We met at the Wild Wild West casino parking lot and hooked up the Jeep to travel. On the road to Bakersfield by 1130. Coming down from Tehachapi we could see the dirty air below over Bakersfield, pur destination. We were at Aunt Helen's by 1830. While set the Rv, Lou was off to Subway for some dinner sandwiches.
Saturday: (11/08) We did some tasks around Helen's place and some shopping (looking). Lou made breakfast. Lunch at the the Ranch Mexican Market. Lou's French onion soup and toast for dinner.
Sunday: (11/09) Dawn's birthday is tomorrow. She wanted breakfast at Noriega's Basque Restaurant. We'd never done that before. Excellent! After breakfast we were off toward Pismo Beach. We thought we'd spend the night before heading home. No smog at the beach. No campsites either, a three day weekend. We arrived about 1330 disconnected the Jeep and Lou and Dawn were off thrifting. I visited an RV Parts store and got a replacement lens for our outside light which had a hole and a new clearance light fixture. All installed. Then we were off to our late lunch at Pismo Fish and Chips. We headed off to El Churro County Park for the night and were settled in a little after 1700.
