David clearly has strep throat, or some kind of infection, that is making him unable to swallow, eat, feel like a real human being. But, because he read on the internet that one can beat strep without antibiotics, he is trying to fight it. Can you tell that I am less than pleased with this theory? I will just have to wait until he is light enough for me to carry into the truck and haul him to the doctor. Which should be any day now.
So as not to tax him too much, we decided to boondock (to be fully self-contained, no hook-ups) a couple hours down the road. I had spotted a place along Hwy 1 that had some RV's parked, and looked right out to the ocean. Can't beat that, right?
Rincon Parkway is operated by the County of Ventura. For $27/night, one can park their rig right there along with 126 others! The view was amazing, and David even mustered the energy to go for a short walk on the beach. We watched a beautiful sunset, flocks of pelicans, a quartet of dolphins, and even slept with a bedroom window open to hear the waves. If we could have actually fit our trailer and truck into the spot properly, we might have stayed another day. But we were really too large for the spot, and the ranger was a sweetheart and let us stay connected, taking up 1.5 spaces, since we were just there for the night. There were maybe 30 other rigs parked when we went to bed.
In the morning, we discovered almost all of the sites had filled. Even the site that we were encroaching on! Luckily, it was a tiny Class C, and we were able to move on out and make our way to the dessert. David said he was feeling better, so we set off for a return to the desert near Anza-Borrego State Park.
