A change of plans…

We headed down to Sacramento at 8:15 am to get to my 9:20 am doctor appt. Traffic moved along well with only a few slowdowns.  We got there around 9:15.

Walked in and the receptionist, who is always very sweet, said “oh Christina, we tried calling but your voicemail was full. ”  Dr. Laptalo is sick today.  Well, okey dokey and off we went after rescheduling. Since my labs came back great again, I wasn’t too concerned about seeing him.  My Kappa light chains went up to 14.1 and lambda went down to 11.4 and the ratio was at 1.26. So that went up too.  But still all in the normal range so I’m a happy camper.

Speaking of camping we are booked for New Brighton next week but now the rain is showing up on Wednesday too.  So I think we’re still going to go but will leave a day early.  Sunday looks ok, Monday shows rain, Tuesday sunny, Wednesday rain.  I guess we will just have to see when we get there. Especially if it’s chilly. The tent trailer does have a heater but I don’t think it’ll be that much fun just sitting in the tent trailer.

Back from New Brighton State Beach

We had a great time. Our spot was level and out of the way. We didn’t have an ocean view but could walk to the overlook and see. Our next time here we do have a premium spot( has an ocean view). These are really hard to book. It looked RV city over on that side. Of course, there were the monster children whose parents think that camping is an excuse for their kids to run wild.

We spent time down at the beach walking and of course, B and I walked every am. Although not getting up at 6am.IMG_0670.jpgWe went to the store 2 x and the big hit was going to the Santa Cruz Farmers market. That was fun.

Plus we hit up Gayle’s for rye bread and a few sweets. If you’re ever in Capitola, do not miss Gayle’s . It is absolutely wonderful food and a great bakery.

It took us 4 hours to get home. WE had light traffic thru San Jose and Stockton and even Sacramento.
