There is something nostalgic about a vintage trailer. Sprinkle two dozen or so around the water in Newport Beach and you have the makings for some memorable camping!

Last week we were blessed to park our rolling home at Newport Dunes Rv Resort in Orange County. Fall is irresistible along the West Coast…and we enjoyed soaking up the sunshine and playing in the bay. Continue reading → Newport Beach and Vintage Trailers

In January we spent two weeks in the sleepy little town of Olema. This town is quite tiny. It is adorable, quaint and it has a few qualities that set it apart.
