I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Mine was very peaceful. For the first time ever, my hubby and I decided to disappear for the holiday. We loaded up the RV, took the dogs and spent a few wonderful days at Santee Lakes near San Diego.
I decorated the RV with a little Christmas Tree, some lights and a few other decorations. Our site was right on the lake just 12 feet from the water. We went fishing. One of my gifts was a new fishing pole so I gave it a try. I caught two pretty good size catfish. My reel even locked up and got all knotted but I began pulling the fishing line in by hand! It was a 4 pound catfish! Then I caught another one! Both were put back in the lake.
There were many ducks in all colors plus gorgeous birds. It it a perfect spot for bird watchers. I fed the ducks and they were eating right out of my hand! That was pretty cool. Our holiday dinner consisted of grilled steak and rice pilaf followed by cheesecake for dessert.
It did get a little scary at night because we heard a lot of coyotes in the area. We had to be real careful with our little dogs. Coyotes will go after our pups and the campground did warn us of the coyote problem. As long as they were outside, I felt safe. It was exciting to hear the howling. We also had a visit from some raccoons at night too!
We are definitely planning a return trip to Santee Lakes. We had a blast and can't wait to get back to the beautiful lakes.
After a peaceful Silent Night, it is back to regularly scheduled programming. I missed you guys!
