Old Sacramento

I was feeling much better today so we decided on a visit to Old Sacramento. They restored the area back in the 1960’s and made it into a touristy area with shops and restaurants. There is also a couple paddle-wheelers and a train. It’s a fun visit. The restoration is well done, and I would have enjoyed a ride on the paddle-wheeler but the schedule didn’t work for us. It is a hour trip on the Sacramento River for $16.00 for adults. Maybe another time. Actually it was rather quiet in the area, post Labor Day I guess. We ate lunch at a pasta/pizza buffet and then we headed back to the trailer.

The rest of the afternoon was taken up by relaxing, a little bit of cleaning. The gnats seem to be staying at the campground for a while so we are leaving the windows shut in the evenings so we don‘t have to clean up dead gnats everyday. Our friends from Hawaii, Carl & Jackie, offered to send us some geckos to help out with the gnats. Cheyenne would love them, I can see her now running around the trailer knocking everything over trying to catch them…probably not a good idea, but thanks anyway guys! :o)
