Packing Up for Our Visit to Oxnard



Actually, we're going to Camarillo first where we'll be staying with our youngest daughter, her husband and our youngest granddaughter. We don't get to see them much so are looking forward to the visit. Daughter's hubby usually barbecues salmon for us and he does a wonderful job of it. My mouth is watering already in anticipation. We ought to go there more often, they have a bedroom with it's own bath downstairs and the family's bedrooms are upstairs, so it's really private.

On Sunday we'll be leaving at 8 a.m. in the morning to go to Channel Islands Harbor to locate the spot in the parking lot for our booth.This time it's on the far side of the Farmer's Market. We'll need to pack our tent, table, two chairs and all my books. We're also taking a new banner my publisher had made for me advertising An Axe to Grind. It's really big so it should be plenty noticeable.

This will be a long day because we're expected to stay until 8 p.m. which is just before the fireworks display. They we'll head back to daughter's.

Our plan is to leave after breakfast the next morning. We always have so much to catch up on when we come home.

We lived and raised our family in Oxnard (where Channel Islands Harbor is located) for nearly twenty years so it's fun to go back even though many of the landmarks have changed drastically.

I'll let you know how it goes on this blog.
