Fort Bragg RV Park Guests and Campers Enjoy Fair Weather For Abalone Cooking

Some saved money and had fun in the sun this weekend in Fort Bragg, here at the RV Park or in a tent camp at Hidden Pines RV Park and Campground. Sites from $25 to $33 were popular picks, also a group camp and some larger RV sites were enjoyed as well. Abalone has six weeks plus change until the season will close. This week a blood moon eclipse and monster tides churned up the water a bit so viability was a challenge, but I found a few fresh red abalone and tried out a new secret recipe.

Fort Bragg RV Park - Heat Wave On The Beach - October 3, 2014

Warm weather on a Fort Bragg beach is a good day. The north coast of California in Mendocino county has blue skies, great weather and calm seas for the first weekend of October 2014. Hidden Pines RV park and campground is open all day every day on highway 1 in Fort Bragg where getting into the pacific ocean from a sandy beach in a protected cove, is just a short walk from camp. Some days gazing at the sea is all you can do. Today roll up your pants or put on your shorts, then walk along the sandy shore and wade toward the gentle waves and feel them work their magic on your legs and feet. I like to rub my toes in kelp that washes up on to shore. Some places sell kelp baths - yet I like the pacific salt spray and  massaging motion of the waves running towards the beach over my feet and then flowing back to the sea and around my ankles. Abalone season has 4 weeks remaining. If your in Fort Bragg or Mendocino stop by and have a look at the Hidden Pines RV Park and Campground. Check in at the store or use the self register night office. (707) 961-5451 :0)
