Pacific Ocean

Yup, foggy morning again. But it was pretty, so worthy of a picture. It turned out to be a damp day, a little rain off and on with bits of sunshine in between.

We stayed put until after lunch and then took off for the ocean which is only about 25 miles from here. There is another casino there, somewhat smaller than were we just were, but it was right there by the ocean. The parking lots were packed with cars and they were even parked on both sides up the street approaching the casino. Would we even find a place to park our motorhome? We took a chance.

They do have a parking area just for RV’s. It was packed too. But we got lucky, somebody just moved out as we arrived and we got their spot. Rigs were leaving and arriving all day long. We knew before we got here was up….

The WHEELMOBILE was here! The WHEEL OF FORTUNE Contestant Search is here for a few days. This was not on our agenda, but what the heck. They had a great system of moving people quickly, so even tho there was a lot of people we did not have to stand around waiting.

We filled out our applications and then were seated in the auditorium inside the casino. Our applications were placed in a barrel and then several were selected at random to play speed-up rounds. It was a lot of fun. Our names were not called. Oh well.

After a walk around the casino we walked down to the beach to see the Pacific Ocean. The waves were high but the tide was out and we watched some boys as they challenged the waves.

The parking lot is quiet but we will be listening to the roar of the ocean as we go to sleep tonight.
