Our visit to Pleasanton was to allow us to see friends and family and some places of interest in the San Francisco Bay area. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to visit all of the places we had intended since Kevin was under the weather with a cold for the first 2 or 3 days. While in Pleasanton, we parked at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.
We spent a month in San Diego parked at the Mission Bay RV Resort on, surprisingly, Mission Bay. It is a beautiful location surrounded by the Mission Bay Park and the bay itself. There is a nice hiking/biking path that runs for miles in both directions. It is also located 5 minutes from downtown San Diego, Old Town San Diego, Little Italy, the Embarcadero, etc.
This stop put us in the upper central Delmarva peninsula. If you’re not familiar with this name, it is a peninsula that includes pieces of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. Delaware has the east side with the Delaware River and Delaware Bay separating it from New Jersey. Maryland occupies the west side with the Chesapeake Bay alongside and Virginia snagged a piece of the southern tip. From here we made day trips to Dover, DE, St. Michael’s, MD, and Rehoboth Beach, DE.
Jamestown is located on the southern end of the Chautauqua Lake in far western New York state. Jamestown is also the birthplace of Lucille Ball. At the age of 15, Lucy convinced her mother to allow her to go to New York City to attend an acting school where she was told that she had no talent and should find something else more suitable. Clearly, she persisted and some 6 years later began to get work as a model.
