Happy Memorial Day weekend!
After being stationary since December and attending college in San Francisco, we are back on the road. The past 2 months couldn't pass quick enough for us. Besides the school work load and the consistent rain, we dealt with one health issue after another. Thankfully we are back in shape and thrilled to have the freedom to travel as we please. Landon is still enrolled with CA virtual Academy and will finish the last week as we travel. I already returned all his books to K12 and notified the administration of our possible move to Texas. We might be back in California next year, but we do not plan that far in advance and prefer to dis enroll our almost 5th grader and keep our options open. We are considering to send him to regular school for one semester just to mingle and get acquainted with students and teachers. But until then, we will take our time and visit as many interesting places as possible. Our first stop is outside of Yosemite NP at an Army Corps of Engineers campground in Raymond CA.
We checked on the Allstay website for ACOE campgrounds and casinos along the way. You can stay for free at casinos or pay a very small fee at an ACOE campground usually located by a body of water.
We opted to check out the campground and lucked out with a fantastic site overlooking the lake. Our site comes with water, electric, fire ring, sheltered picnic table, outside grill and a concrete patio. With our Access card we only pay $15 per night. This site happened to be available throughout Memorial Day weekend and we booked it immediately upon arrival.
It didn't take us long to set up camp, had an easy dinner followed by a glass of wine and a spectacular sunset.
