Having a great time here

Been having lots of fun here. We took a drive to one of two musical roads in the country. It is just outside Lancaster CA. It wasn't all that great as it is real short but when you drive on it at 50 mph it plays the Lone Ranger song. Went to Vasquez Rocks last Sat. with John and Trish and listened a history lesson on the rocks and the area. Then went to the rocks and walked around them. It was real interesting and a fun day.












Yesterday we went with then again to Nethercutt Museum and Collection in Sylmar CA. It is a free museum and even the guided tour is free. They have some 170 old restored cars and lots of Mechanical music boxes. It is one of the best museums we have ever been to and everything in it has been restored to original condition. This is a place we will go to again and again for sure.









I took over 300 pictures so it you want to see them you will have to click on the link.

We moved again

We are now in Soledad Canyon TT RV Park in Acton CA. Got here the other day and the park is much better than it was when we were here in 2013. Lots of improvements and much cleaner. We didn't think we would run into any people we knew here but were wrong. Trish and John and Tom and Deanna and Phil and Darlene. Aint this a small world. Weather here is cooler and I am sure glad of that. We will be here for 3 weeks so will get to see lots of things in the area. Today Phil and Darlene and I and a guy I didn't know named RJ I think went for a bike ride to see the Poppies in bloom. We had a hard time finding any as I think we may have been a bit early but we did. Sure nice to see the wild ones in bloom.












It was about 140 miles round trip and a great time. Could have not asked for better weather.

Made it to Palm Springs

Sorry been busy with other things like goofing off. We got to Palm Spring last Tuesday and got a nice site as always. Ran into some old friend like Lonnie and Betty and got to spend some time with them before we they left. Also got to see Dale and Betty that we met back east some time ago too. They are fun to be around. Also met up with Rick and Janice and Tom and Deanne that we met back east last year. Seems we are meeting up with lots of people here that we know. We have also been out to a casino we like for Lobster Buffet and I got to pig out there as always. Found a place in Palm Springs that had several of the oldest houses in this town. We got to go through them and see the history of the town. Most are free and full of information. Also in the same place is the Ruddys 1930 General Store. It is a collection of things you would find in a general store of the time. It is a private collection that Ruddy had collected through his life. Great place to see things from the past. Every thing is authentic and real. The weather here has been great. Best we have had in all the time we have been here. We leave here this Tuesday and head north to Acton Ca. for 3 weeks.

Still here

We have been having some fun here. I shot some pool with friends I have shot with before. We went to a Asian Seafood Buffet the other night for there senior night. Meal was only $7.00 for us and it was one of the best ones we have been to. We also went to a family owned museum here in Menifee. It is the Motte Museum and there are lots of old card they have restored. It is a free museum and so well worth going to see.










Then the next day we went to San Juan Capistrano Mission. It was lots of fun and spent about 3 hours to see it all. It was built in 1797 and has lots of history. Love seeing the old missions.









Then we drove to the cost to Dana Point. It was a real long walk to the beach area so I went by myself. Not much of a beach but it was nice to see.









Then we went to Valley View Casino for there buffet. They have a all you can eat Lobster Buffet that is only $20.00. With military discount it was $18.00 and so well worth it.
We will be leaving here on Tuesday and going to Palm Springs for two weeks.

WE moved

We left Pio Pico RV Park on Sunday in the rain and drove to Menifee to Wilderness Lakes RV Park. It wasn't all that bad a drive but sure got the house dirty. Got all set up and ended up right across the road from friends Don and Della that we had met 2 years ago out here in Calif. We also got to meet up with Rich and Cathy that we met in Palm Springs 4 years ago. We had met up in other places in the past too. Today me and Don took a nice bike ride and had a great time. We will only be here till next Tuesday so not to sure what we will get to see while we are here.

Getting ready to leave here



                           GO HERE TO SEE PICTURES I TOOK AROUND THE AREA


We have had a real nice time here in Jumal CA. and have met some real nice people. We leave here on Sunday and head north about 100 miles. We have seen some things we have not seen in the past and it was great. I even got to go to Tijuana with a couple we met here and it was lots of fun and a ton of walking. We even met up with Gloria's Grandson Jade and his wife Aly twice. It was lots of fun. The weather has been good but will turn bad tomorrow and hope it moves on by Sunday. I have added a link at the top so you can see some of the pictures I took here.

We have moved

We left Yuma on Tuesday and drove to Jamul CA and got all set up in a park called Pio Pico RV park. It is a member park that we have been to several times. We like the park as it is close to San Diego and things to see. Only bad thing is the internet service through Verizon is real bad. Right now I am at the club house on there free internet. We have a real nice site with full hookups and 50amp. Park is real busy with lots of people in it. We take a drive to Borrego Springs to see the metal art sculptures that are out in the desert. They are real cool and all you have to do is drive around in the desert to see them. It was lot of fun and we got to see lots of them. It was a 90 mile drive to there but real nice things to see on the way.







 Will try and load more pictures later when we get ready to leave of what else we get to see. We will be here till the 19th.
