Yesterday we drove about an hour North West to Ventura. Rincon Parkway is a first come first serve county park on Highway 1. Out of the 127 spots, there were 3 available when we arrived, including what might be the very best spot at the end of the row which meant we didn’t have to try and parallel park the trailer and we only have one neighbor on one side.
The days of free camping are over for awhile, this week is costing us $28/night + $1/night for Curtis (2 dog max) = $203.

Dinner Last Night:
Polenta Stuffed Chiles Rellenos with Mushroom Hash. This is a really clever and tasty recipe. I only made 1 cup of polenta and had a lot left over. You could probably get away with making 1/2 cup (dry). Next time I’ll serve it with beans.
