We slept in this morning. We woke up to the sound of children’s laughter. 😁 They were running around playing and riding bikes.
It was about 9 a.m., we took our time getting ready for the day. I started the electric kettle to heat water for our coffee and started breakfast. I decided to make soyrizo ‘n’ egg burritos with cheddar cheese. Soyrizo is like chorizo, a Mexican sausage that is fried and mixed with eggs; it is a little spicy, but very tasty. The soyrizo is soy based and not as fatty and greasy, and a little healthier than regular chorizo. Anyway, we ate our burrito with a cup of coffee and listened to the kiddos playing outside.
While Craig was cleaning up the breakfast dishes a fellow Facebook So CA RV member found me! (I had previously posted on Facebook that we were attending the Balloon Fest and asked if anyone in the group was attending. Pat replied that she and her sister would be attending.) I walked with Pat, along with her little dog Lucky, back to her rig and met her sister Wendy. Pat and Wendy are seasoned travellers and did some nice modifications to their 2018 Navion. Nice sisters! 🙋🙋
SIDEBAR: I cook and Craig cleans.😁 I am a GOOD cook. We agreed years ago that if and when I cooked that he would clean the kitchen. Fair is fair, right!?👍😉
When I returned from my visit with Pat and Wendy Craig was ready to head over to the Balloon Festival. We walked to the bus pick up location and chatted with a few other RVers while we waited. The bus we rode in was a “party bus” complete with a “dancing pole!” We and a few of the other passengers had a good chuckle about the pole. 😂🤣💃
When we arrived there were plenty of people already there. There were also plenty of vendors selling various food items, crafts, thing-a-ma-bobs and what-u-ma-gig-ums.😁
Here are a few pix.
The garlic grater is a little ceramic dish about the size of the palm of my hand. It is good for grating garlic, ginger, chocolate, Parmesan cheese and lemon rind. It came with a garlic peeler too. $20 bucks. The colors were so vibrant. I have plans for this little kitchen tool!
The magnetic bracelets are supposed to help with circulation since our bodies are made up with electric/ magnetic energy. Sounded good to us. We each got one. $20 each.
As we continued exploring we came across these COOL Razors! Some of them had awesome sound systems and head phones. One had helmets with fresh air piped into them. I have never seen such a thing or knew they existed. Very cool! They ranged on price from 15k to 50k.😳
As we continued exploring the salty smell of bacon-wrapped hot dogs had the nerve to sneak up in my nostrils followed by the sweet fragrance of funnel cakes and then the rich smell of coffee got my attention! Oh my! My nostrils were being accosted by delicious yumminess!🙃 We resisted and kept walking to get a closer look at the lake.
After taking a walk by the lake we decided to meander over to the balloon launch area. We were disappointed that no balloons were being prepared for flight. We spoke with a few folks and were told that they would not be launching today because there was too much wind.
Well, we had seen enough for today and it was getting cold. We hopped on the bus for our ride back to our RV. We settled in and I made Craig’s favorite for dinner: tacos.
It was dark outside, and cold, but I could hear kiddos playing and laughing. I peeked outside and saw on the next row over, someone was projecting a movie on the side of their airstream!
As our neighbors had movie night Craig and I had a cup of coffee and chilled for the evening.
