Mission Bay

Next we moved to Mission Bay RV Resort which, in spite of being an RV park, was wonderful because of its location.  Also we used the Passport America discount.

As its name implies, the park is in the Mission Bay area of San Diego, possibly one of the best locations to be in the county.  There is a biking/walking path right from the park which goes for miles and miles.  Unfortunately, we never did get around to taking the bikes out, but we did walk the mile-plus loop around the neighboring mobile home park.

The double-wide mobiles are laid out so everybody has a view, but I'm not sure how I'd feel about the people on the path passing so close to my picture windows.

Cute tree decorations.

When we returned from our walk, we struck up a conversation with the owner of this adorable tiny house on wheels,  Jen had the trailer custom made and built the rest herself from the floor up.

She is quick to state that it is not an RV, but a tiny house that happens to be on wheels.  It's still a work in progress, but was completed enough for her to show it at the San Diego Earth Fair last weekend.

Here's her sleeping loft.

She has a blog at if you'd like to read about Jen's amazing project. There's also a link to an interview she did for San Diego Living which was very interesting.

So ended our first day at Mission Bay.  But I have one more picture.  As we were stopped at a red light, I looked over to see a strange sight.

In case you can't make it out, there are three seemingly perfectly good cars stuffed into a dumpster. What's up with that?


  1. Talk about a dumpster dive whoaaaaa! But how do you get it out...once I jumped right in a dumpster to move a tire off an old firepit pot...I made it into a great planter. I like that park, even tho- its a bit close for me too the view is amazing.

  2. What a fantastic project that ticklebelly bungalow is. She's a very skilfull lady.

  3. Love that little house on wheels. Nothing like throwing a few good cars out into the dumpster ... I wonder what that's all about?

  4. Quite a eye catching display of those cars. I bet none of them are made by the same company as the cars the dealer sells. Clever. ;c)

  5. Gorgeous views. Gotta love somebodies creative idea. Not sure it would sell me on their cars or not but definitely interesting.

  6. Interesting story about the mobile home park. It will be gone next year and should be interesting to see what the city does with that prime property. We did hear that the RV park would stay in place..

  7. Now, that looks like an RV park we might like. Thanks for the information. That tiny house is too small for me (I don't climb ladders willingly and would be almost claustrophobic in the bed. There is a program on TV sometimes about building tiny houses. It is interesting.
