While I was inside, Dave was outside unhooking the Jeep in preparation for our back-in site. When I finished and walked outside with paperwork in hand, he was bent over picking up shattered glass from the driveway.
The woman leaving when I was entering the office got into her Class C and proceeded to squeeze past Beluga in her hurry to get to her site. Only thing is she didn't understand her clearances and smashed into Beluga's side mirror, shattering it in the process. Luckily Dave was able to stop and reroute her before she did more damage to our old Beluga's side.
She said she was tired and in a hurry to get to her site and take a nap.....thank you very much.

So, in addition to Dave's normal set up procedure, he had to take the mirror apart to see what damage was done and if he could fix it himself.
Luckily, the shattered lower, heated convex mirror was the only problem and we ordered a new one this afternoon. Linda from Vancouver has agreed to pay for the new part and was so very thankful that we were "nice".

We're all nicely settled in our somewhat uneven site and are going about the business of getting ready for Christmas. One silly, but important nevertheless, tradition is the painting of the Christmas toe. Dave's toe.
We'll move to our rented Palm Springs house (with pool and hot tub) later in the week.
It was very windy through the San Gorgonio Pass, just west of us, and the desert sand mixed with the wind to create an interesting tan cloud in the mountains. Lucky for us, the wind stayed and played up there so we had a lovely, sunny day to run our errands.
