Sep 24, 2016 - Malibu Moisture

Sept 23 Today is Santa Barbara day. First we went to the Old Mission which was the 10th of the 21 built in California missions. She is known as the Queen of the Missions. The current look is the fourth reconstruction after fires & earthquakes. Sunday Mass has been held here since 1820. The cemetery, laundry, kitchen & gardens are all open to the public as is the chapel. We then went to Stearns Pier named after the man who built it in 1872. It suffered from the 1925 earthquake, a 1973 fire which caused its closing for 6 years. Another fire...

Sep 9, 2015 - Time to turn around, Pacific Ocean

We changed our plans again due to fires and distance. We decided to head for the cost to the city of Angels. We arrived in the heat of the day and the electricity was off. We took Sandy for a walk on the beach and David and I waded. We both remarked about how fortunate we are to have Sandbridge, It was nice, just different. The electricity was still off so we loaded up the truck and went to Beverly, Hills that is. We also drove parts of many we'll known roads. Other than Rodeo Drive, we were not that impressed. Maybe because of traffic, we...

Jul 9, 2014 - California Uber Alles

We're off! Heading down the Oregon coast, the overloaded truck does quite well as we say goodbye to our home state of 22 years. We plan to do a quick perusal of the Redwoods on the way to San Francisco, but as anybody whose been there knows, you can't rush the Redwoods! We climb trees, visit overlooks, and earn our Junior Ranger Badge. The Rumsky Retirement home squeezes through trees and sails over bridges, including the famed Golden Gate, until we really run out of time and need to take 101 instead of the coastal route. What a treat! Lots...

Rumsky Retirement?

Jul 11, 2013 - Gloomy Malibu

The last two days in Malibu have been a let down instead of the highlight I was hoping for. I wanted real sunny beach time. Stan wanted a chance to get killer sunset pictures. What we got was two days of overcast gloom...no sunrises let alone sunsets. We did walk on the beach but to get there we had to walk down the hill, dodge traffic across four lanes of the Pacific Coast Highway, and climb down a steep embankment amid huge rocks. The water was cold and the sand was covered in rubbery looking debris that I assume was seaweed. Add that to...

Jul 9, 2013 - Malibu and a TV show taping

Yesterday we moved our rig to Malibu Beach RV Park. Our site sits on a hill overlooking the Pacific Coast Highway and the ocean. It is a breathtaking view, but so far I'm not sold that the view is worth the extra cost. This is our most expensive park yet we have no sewer only water and electric. Of course we knew that going in so it was not a surprise. The most aggravating thing so far is the lack of wifi. They advertised wifi throughout the park, but we have none. When we asked, we first were told they were waiting on parts. The next time...

Mar 18, 2013 - Getty Villa and Will Rogers State Park

Alanna and Tom took us to Getty Villa, located in Malibu, it used to house a lot of the museum pieces that are now in the New Getty Museum along I-405 in Los Angeles. The Getty Villa Museum has 44,000 Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities dating from 6,500 BC to 400 AD, including the Lansdowne Heracles and the Victorious Youth are arranged by themes including Gods and Goddesses, Dionysos and the Theater, and Stories of the Trojan War. NOTE As it turns out Bill Gates and Steve Jobs did not create the first computer let alone a laptop...

Nov 21, 2011 - Ronald Reagan Presidential Library

The rain stopped and the sun was out this morningwith just a little bit of fog. The ride down the coast was beautiful. I needed to stop to make a conference call so we stopped near Carpenteria at a local park. I made the call, but it turned out I had the wrong day. It's tomorrow. Better early than late. The only problem with the parking lot at the park was that is was very narrow and and had a tight tight turn-around space so I had to unhook the car. We drove out of the lot and parked infront of a security gate to reload the car. As soon as...

2011 Triangle Tour

Jun 10, 2011 - Malibu, CA

We woke up to an overcast day in San Diego and headed 165 miles North to Malibu, CA. The drive on Hwy 5 was very congested but once we hit the Pacific Coast Hwy it was beautiful. The cliffs and the homes built into them are spectacular. We arrived at the Malibu RV park about 3:30. This is the most fantastic RV park yet. It is also very rare. There is no way today the environmentalist and hotty toddy Malibu sheik would allow this place to sit perched on a cliff above the Pacific. It has been here since the early 70's so it's grandfathered...

May 11, 2011 - and we're OFF!!

WE’RE OFF! Today the first day of our trip. Our first 3 nights we will be staying not too far from home. We traveled to Leo Carrillo State Beach in Malibu. We took the 10 to the 101 to the 23 at Thousand Oaks. The plan was to stop at Trader Joes but we couldn’t find it and the 23 looked from the map to be a straight shot to Malibu. It was NOT. The road was narrow and windy and a sign at the start said not recommended for trailers. Oh well, a few broken dishes. The campground was beautiful. In a canyon of old oaks and sycamores. Lots of...

Mar 13, 2011 - Oceanside, Malibu

We arrived in Oceanside CA on February 27 just before check-in time. It did not take very long to drive from Hemet, about an hour! Our site at the Paradise RV Resort was right across from the office, pool and hot tub, which was very convenient. It is by far the cleanest park we've ever been in. The staff is always raking and cleaning the RV sites. Two guys own it and their sons run it. The staff are all very young and friendly. In the office area they have a TV with leather chairs, pool table and shuffleboard table, very nice. At the back...

Feb 23, 2011 - MALIBU $$$$$$$

Bonjour à tous, Après 4 jours à Malibu, on confirme, c'est la place des gens riches et célèbres. C'est complètement fou de voir les propriétés et les bagnoles ici. Petite anecdocte, souvent dans les caisses ou les banques il y a des petits plats de bonbons sur les comptoirs près des caisses, ici c'est des chocolats fins ou des Ferrero Rocher. Nous avons obtenus les adresses de plusieurs artistes qui vivent ou possèdent des résidences dans la région. Elles ne sont pas tous très belles mais elles valent tous une fortune. Parmi les photos, la...
