While visiting my daughter, Corrie, and her family in San Diego, I'm staying at Santee Lakes campground - probably the most expensive place I've ever stayed. But it is beautiful, and close to where Corrie lives.
Santee Lakes is a string of lakes, run by the water authority. There are campsites along the lake, but I didn't score one of those.
Lots of mallards, coots and wood ducks live here too.
And cormorants, which are a little more shy.
Although my spot is not on the lake, it is REALLY nice - large and not lined up in a row with other RVs.
This is why I'm here - to celebrate my favorite holiday with my grandchildren. Jonathan is a Gold Ninja, and Mara wanted to be, of all things, a moustache! I made the moustache part of her costume, and Corrie found moustache earrings, socks, suspenders, and shirt, mostly on Amazon. (Who knew!)
Granddog Coco did not complain about having to haul a cowgirl around on her back.
Corrie went through a ton of candy. Some of my favorite visitors were the Monions from Despicable Me -
