September 22nd. Chula Vista

So this is the world in which we have inserted ourselves.  The Chula Vista RV resort is a walled in RV and camper resort on the shore on San Diego bay. 

We discovered this place last year when our friends France and Francine stayed here while Francine had a contract at Sharp Hospital.

Next door to us, really a part of the resort is a marina and a resort restaurant and pub.  It feels different here than Santee Lakes.  Between the resort and the bay, is a small park along the shore.  It is well kept and pretty.  On one end, there is a twenty foot ironwork sculpture of a pelican called "Fisherman".  Near the other end of the park is a series of wind vanes that sway and turn to the wind in a delicate dance. Once you get out to the main road, it runs south into Imperial Beach.  North, it only goes a short way, but it connects to the far western end of H Street.  This is a fairly new construction.  To our east, is a large vacant series of lots.  There are some remaining concrete pads.  This used to be where Rohr Aerospace had it's factory before the industry all but left San Diego.  A bicycle path has been put into this area and part of that runs through the vacant area.  We are near the center of the commerce area of Chula Vista.  Just a ways is the Downtown area which has been going through a revitalization.  Or park is only 7 miles from her work.  In terms of our house in North Dakota, that would get you all the way down the gravel roads to the town of Petersburg. 

We've taken some walks on the beach, done a little geocaching in the area, and begun to explore some taprooms and local breweries.
