Yanks RV Resort
We have arrived safe and sound at our campsite without any mishaps whatsoever. We stayed at a fabulous campsite on our way down the 101 from Redwood City, CA called Yanks RV Resort. We had a massive 100ft spot that we just pulled into and left our truck hooked up for the night.
It was a beautiful park which was very clean and well-kept. We had a nice relaxing stay having a swim and a little time in the Jacuzzi until late, it was just what we needed to relax.
As we then the next day carried on down the 101 we stopped off for breakfast a the truck stop in Paso Robles which was just fabulous and had a great breakfast that was really inexpensive.
Southwest Coast – Ventura CA
We carried on straight down the 101 which goes right next to the Southwest Coast in parts and is really beautiful. We arrived at our site in Ventura in plenty of time to set up at 3pm. When we went to go pay we were told that our site was no longer going to be $1450 as previously expected but that now it was going to be $1950 instead. We were flabbergasted and could not believe the increase or the matter of fact way that it was explained to us. Apparently the site that we were going into was a premium pull thorough site. When we tried to get into our site it was really small and difficult to maneuver with two big hedges on either side the were right up against the slide outs. We went back to the office to explain that we couldn’t fit and they gave us another site. It is a little bigger but not much and is now right opposite the children’s park and right facing the freeway. We have no choice to stay as there are no other parks in the area within 30 mins of Oxnard and so unless we can come up with another solution we have no choice but to pay $1950 per month for our spot. We are absolutely disgusted with the price and if anyone has any other ideas for us please let us know.
After all the places we have visited the Southwest Coast is our favorite. The very next day we went for a visit to Ventura Harbor which we have been to before but really love. We had some ice-cream that was gluten-free, dairy free and was made with pineapple and just delicious. The harbor is a very quiet and tranquil place and calmed us down no end after feeling very angry. Peter had two days off work so we headed to the beach at the harbor and spent a day at the beach there. There really were hardly any people there and we had a very relaxing time. Peter got a bit burnt from the sun, he did put on lotion but obviously not in all the places he should. Bless him when he went to work he looked like a lobster. I think he forgot how the sun on the southwest coast is very strong with no clouds for coverage.
