Art, Kathy, Jennifer, and I met at Bodega Dunes campground over this weekend, and had a great time discussing all things Escape and more. We were joined for a few hours Saturday by a couple from Grass Valley, CA, (sorry, I don't remember your names, please let us know) who are thinking about an Escape 5.0 TA, so we showed our 19 and 21 and talked about options and thoughts. We look forward to more Bay Area get-togethers.

Looking Good Guys! The weather and the tide cooperated, and I know you all had a great time.

Keep us in the loop too. Aug thru mid Oct is clear. We do the Lake Casitas Rally in October and sailing the seas in Nov.

Another alternative for our October NorCal rally is Lake Solano county park near Winters. I have not been there, but the sites appear to be serene & spacious and on the creek which might even have water in it . Some have hookups, others don't. The good news about this park is that it might be easier for everyone to get to and certainly not as booked up as New Brighton Beach.

We hope to try it out probably in April and will post back here if there is any interest.

Lake Solano Park is located at the base of coastal foothills west of the town of Winters and offers an array of recreational opportunities. A destination point for outdoor enthusiasts since its creation in 1973, Lake Solano Park caters especially to campers, picnickers, kayakers, canoers and anglers. The park has a Nature Center and trail opportunities for short day hikes, bird watching and wildlife photography. Owned by the Bureau of Reclamation, Lake Solano is managed for public recreation by Solano County. More than 60,000 visitors a year enjoy a wealth of recreational activities both on and off the water. The lake is considered one of the best fly fishing spots in the Sacramento Valley. The County operates a campground with 58 campsites, many with water and electric hookups. There are restrooms with flush toilets, sinks and hot showers. The day use area has picnic sites, group picnic pads for rent, a free boat launch (non-motorized boats only), parking and restrooms. The picnic area is located directly east of the campground. To contact Lake Solano Park call (530) 795-2990; camping and picnic pad reservations may be made online (see "Online Park Reservations" at left).

NOTE: No glass bottles or dogs allowed in day use area.


Gracing the park are a number of plants and trees that have adapted successfully to this climatic region with black walnut, buckeye, toyon, willow, valley oak, live oak, grey pine and cottonwood trees abundant in the area. The lake is home to an amazingly diverse cross-section of animal life, where one can find anything from the tiniest insects to black tail deer. Reptiles native to the area include blue-belly fence lizards and harmless alligator lizards. Ground and tree squirrels, coyotes, raccoons, bobcats and gray foxes can all be found at Lake Solano Park. Birds nesting at Lake Solano include the scrub jay, quail, the acorn and Nuttall's Woodpecker, bushtits, sparrows and towhees. There is even a large winter population of European Widgeon that make the lake their winter home. Scenic excursions within a two-hour drive of the park include Lake Berryessa and the Napa Valley to the west, the Sacramento Valley and its open farmland to the east and the Delta waterways and the San Francisco Bay area to the south.

This looks like a very interesting possibility. If we're available on the weekend set, we'd be in.

All sites look inviting---our preference is the beach in October when the coastal fog lifts and summer appears. Let us know if Bodega Bay has morphed or if these are separate functions. We have put a place holder on our calendar for October 21-23.

Our preference is also the beach in October. I have a question for all of you on the date. I originally proposed Oct 21-23. But someone said they would like to come to both this outing and the Lake Casitas rally which is this same weekend. I am willing to move this gathering by a week to make it work for more, if that is true. So now I am thinking Oct 14-16 at New Brighton State Beach in Capitola, CA. Reservations open April 1 for those date ranges. So here is the question, and I would appreciate a brief answer: Would you rather attend on Oct 14-16 or Oct 21-23?

Naturally, we would vote for New Brighton ... just down the road ;-) But we're up for anything. October is a beautiful month to camp in CA.

There's also Seacliff State Beach (35 sites, right on the beach but it is like a parking lot and is always full) and the Santa Cruz/Monterey KOA which is not on the beach but still, very nice.

Either weekend works for us.
