In the middle of August, Visalia easily hits 100+ degrees. The hottest it has been while we lived in Visalia has been around 110! Yet another reason to get out of here! So we did, for a week.
We had not seen our daughter since Christmas and she is currently pregnant so it is a good excuse for a visit. Plus the temperature difference was 40 degrees! Yes, it was around 60 where we were staying. We thought we would try a different RV park. We have stayed at the SF RV Resort (now severely limited due to the cliff eroding), Lake Chabot regional park (across the by and you have to be back in by 10pm), the Trailer Villa (Redwood City and a little distance away. I got reservations at the Treasure Island RV Park in South San Francisco. It is essentially a mobile home park with some overnight spaces. We reserved a week.
It was wonderful! The weather. This is our spot (notice the nice cool overcast!):
We got to visit with Hannah and, sometimes, her boyfriend Lukas. They are very excited about the current pregnancy and impending birth.
We did a few touristy sight-seeing things. The view from the Bernal Heights hiking trail:
The view of the Golden Gate from the Disney Family Museum:
We even drove down to San Jose to see the Winchester House:
It was a nice enjoyable cool trip that made it hard to go back to the heat.
