We’ve been here since Sunday and it’s very nice. Our drive down went well trailering and going thru SanJose. I’m sure that being Sunday makes a difference. We found a Costco in Tracy to get gas so that saved us quite a bit on gas.
A lovely spot but I think I still like 62 and 63 better. if you’re lucky you are on the bluff side overlooking the ocean. Some of the spots weren’t even occupied but the website says everything is sold out. Go figure. Still new Brighton is a nice campground.
We did a nice beach walk yesterday
The weather is warming up and I suspect the campground will be fuller by Friday. Yesterday when I walked around half the spots were empty.
We’ve had great food so far, a Staub dinner of stuffed peppers and sauce, burgers on the Weber, and a quesadilla night. Tonight is another BBQ with some chicken for me and tofu for B. I have some potato salad I bought to have with that. We also stopped at Gayles which is a must in Capitola.
My daughter says the kitties are fine and all is good at home although it has been quite cold. Did I mention last week we lost a chicken to either a fox or coyote. We think a fox because we never heard anything. B lets them out to free range and generally they stay together and don’t go to far. But clearly one of them did. It’s always a little sad to lose one of the girls.
Today we’re taking a drive to see some Redwoods so that’ll be nice and then a beach walk later.

What a great campground! We love it there. Enjoy!
We love it too. It is just so hard to get ANY reservation at all though. I guess everyone wants to be at these campgrounds.
I’ve been there and to Gayle’s too, you are having a nice adventure and good to be a bit self contained these days.
Gayles is so great. Their rye bread is delicious. We ended up getting 2 sandwiches, which were so big we had them for 2 lunches, an almond croissant, and 2 cookies.
Yes that looks a nice pond! (We live on a clifftop overlooking over the Irish Sea pond. On a good clear day standing on the hills above us you can see Wales, England, Scotland, Ireland…and the Isle of Man). Say hello to the kitties for us.
Wow, your house sounds amazing. I’ve read about the Isle of Man, very interesting place.
Lived there 10 years, my sister still does…Manx is one hell of a.language! Based on ancient Norse.
