Jalama Beach

Took 2 days last week and dragged the Tradewind up to Jalama Beach for a quick breather. It was a great trip. The place is right on the beach, and very secluded. It was packed beyond my imagination, though. I think we got one of the last places available. The road from CA1 to the beach is about 15miles or so, and curvy like a rollercoaster, narrow and bumpy. A great test for a towing rig! Mine performed flawlessly to my surprise. Negotiating the tight turns and steep descends was a breeze, and the scenery is awsome. The campground has concrete leveled pads and electricity, but is otherwise primitive. There is a clean dump station for 2 rigs at a time.
This was the first time I hooked up to 30A shorepower aside from my office, and to my surprise the A/C worked like a charm. Could not get it to blow cold when hooked up at the office. It ran for 6 hours or so over 2 days, and literally froze me out of the trailer on a 85 degree day.
It was nice to use my new lights, and all the electrical items without having to conserve too much, like when boondocking in Mexico.
I can recommend this place to anyone looking for a midweek getaway. It's $ 22.00 per night with electricity. They have water faucets where one can fill the freshwater tanks, but no water hookups. The sunsets are magnificent. Too bad I left my camera at home.
