Wicked van travels Days 1-6
Wicked Van Travels
Day 1 : Stayed at Carpinteria State Beach – approx. 120km north of LA, near Santa Barbara.
Day 2 : Day trip to Santa Barbara. Stayed the night again at Carpinteria.
Day 3 : Started early, driving to Solvang and then San Luis Obisupo. We hadn’t booked accommodation and had found out many of the national parks were full as this is a popular holiday time. We kept driving until we found a campsite east, near a lake national park – ‘Santa Margarita”. Weather is warm, much like late spring weather. Rolling hills, farmland and vineyards depict the scenery around this area. It is much more of a rural setting and we are enjoying the peace and quiet.
Day 4: Santa Margarita – explored the Lake nearby.
Day 5: Left Santa Margarita for our next camping stop – just outside of Los Banos. Not a lot to do here but we have to wait out the long weekend – everywhere else is booked out.
Just waiting out the public holiday here- went
and watched the Hangover 2 at the cinemas – only cost $13! Head off really
early tomorrow to Yosemite where it is reported they still have snow. Time to
put away the shorts and thongs
