Today's Visit to Sea World San Diego, Ca

We had a great time at San Diego's Sea World today. We had also been to the one in Orlando, Florida. We found this one was smaller- less walking, which was nice. But we also found it not too crowded, which was nice, and were told that January and February are quieter times and not as busy. No long lines for us, so we were able to see and do everything we wanted to.

Unfortunately today, the Skytower was closed- due to maintenance. Would have loved to see our surroundings while on it, however we did see beautiful Mission Bay while on the Bayside Skyride, so that made up for the closed Skytower.

Here's some pics from our visit today.

Our Campsite @ Bonita, Ca- Sweetwater Regional Park

We checked into The Sweetwater Regional Park on Sunday night for 5 nights. 

Using a discount code I found in the San Diego Tourism Guide, we get one night FREE if we buy at least 3 nights. Cost: $33 USD a night. The campground is located in Bonita, Ca., about 15 minutes outside of the city centre of San Diego.

We have 50 amp hook up, meaning we get fresh water, sewer dump and electricity in the cost. We also have a semi private site, but are gone most of the day anyhow and back in the evenings. It's a clean, safe and friendly campground and would highly recommend it if in the area.


The Sea Lions of La Jolla Cove, Ca

On today's outing through San Diego, we stopped over in La Jolla Cove after hearing about the sea lions that way. They were interesting to see, fought over spots in the sun and spots to lay, but also would get annoyed with people if they got too close. We were sure to keep our distance though- especially after reading the sign that was posted!


Review: Dometic 310 RV Toilet

We attended the RV Show in Quartzsite in January and visited the Dometic toilet display, speaking with a rep about the seal problem we had with one of our toilets, which we have since replaced.

                                              210 Model

We had told the rep we had 2 x 210 Models in our RV and he showed us the 310 Model as an upgrade to what we have. We got the Model 310 after hearing about all the great features. It's a value-priced toilet, featuring PowerFlush technology and a full-size ceramic bowl to deliver the comfort and beauty one would expect from a residential toilet.

Gerry installed it with ease in the mid coach bathroom. It was a big difference from the 210, and actually we can't say enough good about it. It's a gravity flush and uses little water in the bowl. Works like a charm.
