Last day at San Luis SRA. No water for the second day due to some issue that the State cannot fix over the holiday weekend. I should get some money back since I only have electric! Lot’s of other campers have left. There are only 2 others in our loop of 29 spots. Roxie feels a little spooked by all this. It is kind of remote out here:
In the above picture, just to the right a bit (due east) and 4 miles away is Santa Nella. This is the stop on I5 that has Andersen’s Split Pea Soup restaurant. Just to the left a bit (due north) and 3 miles away is the San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery. We have visited the cemetery in the past with the WBCCI group. It is impressive and saddening to see the rows of headstones. We did not visit on this trip.
We were slow to get out of the trailer but why did we have to be fast? We didn’t! I took off Tuesday also so we could have a full three day weekend albeit starting on Saturday. We again consulted Yelp for a meal and found a nice little locally run diner, the Court House Diner. A cute locally run diner with very good food.
We never thought that Los Banos had a movie theatre but found out that they did! We decided to watch a movie in the afternoon and saw Jupiter Rising. It was fun as Roxie and I both enjoy SciFi. It was filmed as a 3D movie but we did not see it in 3D. I think the film directors/producers tend to go overboard with the 3D effects in the movies. This one was a bit over the top in that sense. Also with the advent of high quality special effects, those effects tend to have too much going on in them and can be a bit of a distraction. I know I am just getting to be an old codger that complains about everything.
That early evening we started another fire to enjoy the last evening. Here is basically a warmer shot of the above photo:
The next day was the trudge back home. This one was a bit more interesting as we had two vehicles to drive. I tried to get my GoPro working so I could have Roxie film the trailer from the trailing position but alas I could not get it working.
Until the next trip…
