A Beautiful Surprise Stop-RV summer trip cont

Even though our detour through Santa Barbara was not planned, it ended up being such a beautiful surprise. We stayed at a great RV park called Ocean Mesa right across from El Capitan Beach. It was my 3 little muffins first time to see the ocean so it was quite exciting. There was a huge grove of trees that we walked through to get to the beach and we kept commenting on how gorgeous they were. On our very last day, John figured out it was an avocado grove! I desperately tried to shake, throw sticks and even attempted to climb up a tree to get one...but it was a major fail! We cooked out, went to the beach, swam in a heated pool and cooked s'mores. It was so much fun we stayed an extra night. I love how God works out all the little details in our life...even in the detours!

Proverbs 16:9 We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.
