Camarillo Apartment

Peter and I have moved into our new apartment in Camarillo.

Camarillo

Hey all it has been 6 weeks since our last post and I can tell you I have really missed my weekly blogging.  Our RV would you believe is still in the workshop and we are not happy with both that adjusters for taking so long and Camping World for holding them up with photos that they were requesting.  We are going to give them a couple more weeks and then start to take some action of some kind.  Spring is just around the corner and we want to be able to use our RV.  It is rediculous it is takeing so long.

Well after living in hotels and airbnbs with no where to live during the flood, number 1 we have put on so much weight eating just from a microwave or eating out and number 2 our stuff just feels like it is all over the place.  We have stayed positive knowing that it was not long till we moved into our new apartment in Camarillo and  after living full time in the RV for 4 years,  we were ready for a little change. Not sure how long we will last not living in the RV aswe loved the social aspect of it on a daily basis.  We will just do that now at weekends and long breaks.

Peter and I have decided that we really like Camarillo.  It has everything we want for a place to stay such as:

  • Beaches just minutes away
  • Mountain views
  • Air quality is good
  • Great shopping areas
  • Plenty of entertainment
  • Great Local Church
  • Great Network Marketing
  • Close to other towns such as Santa Barbara, Ventura, Oxnard, Thousand Oaks and Malibu.
  • A quilting club with over 350 members.

To be honest the list goes on and on, I can find so many reasons.

We moved into an apartment in the AMLI Spanish Hills Apartments it is apartment living at it’s finest. I said to Peter if we are going to live in an apartment then it has to be a really nice one and was exactly what I said to him when we were choosing the RV.

Our problem when moving into the apartment was that we had no furniture at all.  We hit the shops and chose a sofa bed so people can come to stay, a recliner chair and a bed, dining table and chairs, TV and of course a surround sound to begin with.  Soon after with a couple of more purchases we are quite nicely set up.

While living in hotels we were putting money down on these items each week so that when we moved in they were all paid for and that worked out great. On the day of moving everything got delivered within 2/3 hours of receiving the keys.

In the apartment we already had, cooker, fridge, washing machine, dryer and dishwasher so with the items we had purchased and our personal items we had soon set up a little home.

We have been in the apartment for 2 weeks now and we love it.  IWe need to get out and meet people and make friends is what is left to do, we have joined the local church and the local chamber of commerce is next and also I want to join a group of ladies as I have found out that do quilting.  It was my birthday 2 days ago and Peter has bought me a new sewing machine so I am eager to get going on it.

Here are some pictures of our new apartment, see your next time.
