Seabee Museum – Port Hueneme, California

The motorhome is parked at VFW Post #1679 in Ventura, California. I’ll depart later this morning.

Mary continues to be occupied with personal business. I am now not expecting to see her again until I arrive at her home in Murphys, California about the third week in April. It’s just the way things are and we just have to deal with it.

I’m now in what I’m calling my “pacing mode”. Last October I had cataract surgery at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California. My surgeon wants me back in mid-April for a six-month post-operative eye examination. Palo Alto is only about 325 miles from my current location. So, in the meantime, I’ll “pace” my forward direction travels hoping stay in 65-75 degree temperatures all the while.

Yesterday I drove the Bronco the about ten miles to the Seabee Museum at Port Hueneme. This museum presents the history of the U.S. Navy Construction Battalion. It’s been said that a Seabee is a soldier, in a Navy uniform, with Marine training, doing the work of a civilian, getting W.P.A. pay. I spent two hours enjoying this great museum of these unsung heroes. Like  a lot of museums, this one has lots of darker areas lit by mini-spotlights making for difficult photography condition.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
