We only have half our electricity.

Surfside RV Resort, Parksville BC (2 stars)

Sometime today we seem to have lost about half of our 120 volt electrical circuits in the Schooner. Very strange. Lee incorrectly blames the GFI circuit and then calls maintenance guy Chris for advice. Hey Lee, are all the lost circuits on one side of the main breaker in the panel. U-huh. Check the power cable coming from the site electrical box. Lee does so and, wow! The end going into the Schooner has burn marks.

We pass the night without 120 volts, sort of like dry camping, which we are quite used to.

A hunkered down day in the Schooner. I am actually reading a novel "The Dalai Lama's Cat". Not quite sure when the last time was I sat down with a novel and read the whole thing. The narration tells of adventures of a cat who lives a pampered life as told through the eyes of the cat that belonged to the Dalai Lama. In the telling of stories, the cat named HHC for "His Holiness's Cat" is the narrator. An interesting way of explaining Buddhism.
