Seal Beach Days

We have had a great time in California and are enjoying our time in Seal Beach.
One good thing about it is the campground. The Sea Breeze RV Resort Park is one of the best we've been to.

The campsites are large and level, the laundry is free it is right on the edge of the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge.

It is also centrally located for our needs.  We are fairly close to shopping and the airport and some nice areas to visit.  Like Long Beach, Huntington Beach, Pasadena, Yorba Linda and La Mirada.

Over the past couple of weeks we checked out the Los Angeles AFB in San Pedro CA which is about 30 minutes away and decided we didn't want to put family up in quarters over there. (Planning for Christmas visitors).  On the way over there to check it out, we passed over some big bridges in Long Beach.  Wow!  What a sight with all the shipping and containerized business in the port.

We've also been to Pasadena for a large swap meet at the Rose Bowl.  Getting to see the inside of the stadium was awesome! The swap meet around the parking lot of the stadium reminded us of the swap meet at Aloha Stadium.  We didn't find anything there we couldn't do with out.

Right after I returned from Sioux Falls on Thursday, we went over to the grand opening of the new Chick-Fil-A restaurant in Seal Beach.
We were excited to see Scottie, the new owner/operator.
He lived in Virginia Beach a few years ago. In fact, we stayed in his beach house the very night before we went to purchase our Allegro Bus in May 2009.

We have driven over to Huntington Beach to check out the ocean and do some shopping (Dicks Sporting Goods) and to see the area.  Lots of RVs were lined up in the parking lot RV campground on the beach.  Looked pretty windy but it was beautiful.
We were near Huntington Beach last week when we ate at Applebee's on Veteran's Day.

We drove 30 minutes to spend the day at the Richard Nixon Museum and Library in Yorba Linda which was very well done.  I liked it a lot and it is one of my favorite Presidential Museums to day.
More on that on another post.

Yesterday we drove over to La Mirada and attended the church were nephews Ben and Nate (and their families) attend.  Nice communities in these parts.  The areas we have been to seem to be well maintained, in mostly nice areas.

Each day has been a little different, but yesterday we had a leisurely morning as we showered and got ready for church.  We drove from Seal Beach over to La Mirada and met our two nephews at their church.  We hit the jackpot because it was 'pot luck' Sunday and we got to have lunch and meet their friends.  We enjoyed that.

Next, we went over to Walmart, picked up some things and then found a Dick's Sporting Goods in Huntington Beach.  We exchanged a Women's Small golf glove for a Medium size.  (Happy Birthday Pam!)
Then we took the Pacific Coast Highway from Huntington Beach to Seal Beach and saw some beautiful beaches on a nice day.

After some football watching, we went over to Joe's Crab Shack for dinner.
 It is on the marina in Long Beach.
They weather has been fabulous and we are glad to be here.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!  Until next time...
