Tuesday -February 26, 2008

Wow, are we lucky as today is another beautiful, warm, sunny day. This morning we had breakfast at the hotel, I had a Belgian Waffle and John had French Toast, which is something neither of us have had in ages and they were very good. Our luggage was to be ready for pick up from our rooms at 10, so everyone was ready to go by 10:15, and that is after some shopping had occurred. I bought a pretty white front zip hoody, haven’t had a hoody for years so decided something different was in order.

Beach Cabanas

Joe took us a couple of miles down the road to a fishing village so we could buy shrimp to take home. Fox Studios have a location right beside the fishing village and the drive in from the highway is about 1 mile all along side a cement fence with broken bottles on the top – pretty! After we got our shrimp Joe had to back out the entire way as there was no place to turn the bus around – now there is one good bus driver!

Walking Up From the Beach at the Fishing Village

We took the same route home, through Tijuana and San Diego, fortunately there is a bus lane to go through customs so we didn’t have to wait in the huge car lineup. We had to take our luggage and anything we bought through customs but we all breezed through and were quickly on our way again. We stopped at the same plaza in Alpine for lunch (they must get some sort of deal there!), stopped at a rest area just before El Centro and arrived back at Desert Paradise about 5 p.m. We had left our truck at Jim & Sonia’s and were just ready to leave when Ida, who is across the road from them, came over and asked us all over to her place for a drink. We had a drink and visit and headed out arriving home about 6:30.

After unpacking we decided to cook a few shrimp for dinner so had shrimp and cheese and crackers. Tonight is catching up time and again I think it will be an early evening as we are both tired – how can you get so weary from doing nothing but sitting on a bus all day! And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to the mystery of tomorrow.
