Doheny Wood

The weekend was filled with wooden wagons at the beautiful Doheny Beach in Dana Point, California. We arrive early and found over 100 woodie wagons parked next to the beach. This venue provides a natural place for a show as Doheny is a famous surfer’s beach in California. There were at least that many surfers in the water awaiting the waves.

The waves provided a nice sound as we were walking along the beach looking at the wagons. I really love these shows and the people who attend them with their wagons. Our group was set up near the water and the registration booth. Tailgating is a must at these shows with back to back parking allowed lots of conversation with other owners.

The show lasted until 2:00 pm when the awards were handed out and information about the weekend events associated with the show. We had a wonderful day with our friends and headed home (120 miles) on the busy 405 freeway. Thanks to the So Cal Woodie Club for another great show.

Stay Tooned!
