RVing in the San Diego area.

Hi friends and family,

I haven't written much lately but we are still in San Diego.. We have been in the area for the last five weeks. Anne's son lives here and we get to enjoy our grand daughter before leaving California. Anne has had a permanent smile since we arrived.

Next week, we are finally getting back on the road, heading  for Texas. We will likely take two weeks or more to get there. There is no rush when you are retired.
I have just  received a new camera from Pentax/Ricoh.  I am writing a new e-book for this new camera and I want the pictures to reflect the "South Western" way of life. The road from Southern California to Texas is what defines much of the South West and I will try  to stop in Santa Fe for a few days.

The e-books, if you have a Pentax Camera,


We are currently parked at the Rancho Los Coches RV park. It is a small but fantastic RV park and we have met so many nice people. We have enjoyed the beautiful pool area and how quiet and clean the park is. There are so many different varieties of trees that give shade to your campsite and daily we enjoy watching woodpeckers across the creek from our space and the eagles that fly along the wooded area.

 The park has many activities and last week we attended a Chili-Cook-Off and Cornbread contest. It was great. This coming Friday, they have organized a "Spooktacular" for Halloween; which includes a Dog Parade & Costume contest, followed by Pet and Children Trick or Treat around the park and finally Food and Fun with Ghoulish Treats for all and then there will be a Camp Site Decorating contest. We will attend with our granddaughter and son. Saturday will be our  last day here, but we do plan to return some day. 

There was enough chili to feed the whole park and it was really good. 

Anne with our new found full time RV friends. Gerald and Row Spadt. What a nice couple. They usually spend their time at the Lakeside RV Resort in Pahrump, Nevada. They have family in San Diego, like us, and they spent about a month here visiting their children and grandchildren. They have three wonderful canine companions, "KC, Roxie, and Pepper."

For the last two weeks, this has been our RV spot
Nice swimming pool and weather in the 80's  almost every day, and we were almost the only people in the pool every day. It shows that we are new at this full time  RVing.
Friends, have a safe trip if you are travelling. Family, follow us wherever the long way home takes us.We love you all.
