Wash, Wax and Corgi Day at the Beach!

While some are winterizing, we are washing and waxing our Safari Airstream travel trailer for the beginning of our fall-winter-spring camping season in the wonderful mountains and deserts of Southern California, popular with snow birds as far away as Bigfork, Montana.  A full report on how I wash and wax the trailer, along with a list of my tools, strategy, procedure, and the benefits, is seen in last year’s post, “Wash, wax and treat II.”


Once again, I wore my “Ridin’ with Biden” hat, especially because I am on-board with his efforts to accelerate progress in preventing, detecting, and treating cancer with the goal of ending cancer as we know it.  As a retired RN, I appreciate Joe Biden’s passionate tribute to the nurses and all who fight cancer, as seen in the video, “Vice President Biden Delivers Remarks at the Cancer Moonshot Summit.”*


Seven years ago, I had Mohs surgery to remove a skin cancer lesion from my face, so as the sun broke through the marine layer, I put on my trusty wide brim hat for better sun protection.


Our annual washing and waxing the trailer was completed ahead of schedule, so we took a day off and rewarded ourselves and our corgis Mac and Tasha with a day at the beach!


But it was not just any day, it was the 2016 Fall So Cal Corgi Nation Beach Day at Huntington Beach, California!


One thousand people with their corgis flocked to the beach for a day of excitement and sensory overload!



Corgis played in the surf and on the beach.



Ryen, a popular vlogger, drove down from the San Francisco Bay Area with his famous corgi Gatsby* dressed as Batman for this event!


And fans lined up to meet them.  See Ryen’s vlog, “How Corgi Dog Changed My Life.”*

By the end of the day, we were all dead… tired… but with wonderful corgi memories to dream about!*

    OMG. The Corgis are so adorable! Really enjoyed Gatsby. Made me want one. What a smart puppy. When he gets under his bed & scoots around we couldn’t stop laughing. Just got back from Agua. Very nice but the Military was very active. Lots of helis. See you soon!

    Great post! Mac and Tasha look like they are having a blast. I love that Corgi Nation beach towel. Was hoping there was a link to get one! Looks like you guys are living the grand life. Good for you and happy trails!
