Bodega Bay

7AM - Bodega Bay
This is the beginning of our 3rd day camping in the Town of Bodega Bay, California. Alfred Hitchcock produced "The Birds" here, a 1963 movie about birds who go wild and begin attacking people.

Rain began falling about 5am. We used Mr. Levelers to tilt MsTioga so that the rain water flows off the roof. Our experience has been that no rain leaks inside if MsTioga is tilted like this.

So far, this has been a good day for me.

9AM - Powered up Honda generator
There is very little Sun this morning for charging our solar battery bank.  So, we decided to power up our little 1kw Honda generator.  The batteries are only 47 amp hours discharged.  We could have gone on without using the Honda.  But, we want to watch movies.  That means more discharging.

We have not used the little Honda for a couple of months.  The Honda could use a little exercise.
