Today was a bit overcast and quite cool and windy. It was time to say goodbye to Ron & Nancy and thank them for an absolutely wonderful visit, one we will always remember. A lot of pictures were taken before we departed to help remember this visit and we left with the hope that we can get together again next year and hopefully do some sightseeing in and around San Diego.

The drive down the mountain from their place was beautiful and the homes are spectacular. They live above the Lawrence Welk Resort so I got a picture of that for my sister and also some pictures of the view they have.

We took the long way home and went back to Desert Hot Springs to check out some RV parks for next year. We didn’t find anything that we liked other than the one that Jim & Linda are in and the problem with that park is that the streets are very narrow so it could be a challenge to get into and out of a spot without doing some damage to the trailer. We will have to think on this one for a while. It was also very windy there and somehow I think that is probably normal when you see all the windmills in the area and we aren’t big fans of a lot of wind.

The mountains around Desert Hot Springs were pretty with the clouds just sitting above them and the shadows.

We were well past the Salton Sea when the wind finally died down and the temperatures rose to the mid 60’s. When we got back we stopped at Ronnie’s and got a pizza, it is the first time we’ve tried a pizza from there and the pizza was good but it is definitely a take out spot rather than eat in.

By the time we got home and ate and unloaded the truck we were finished for the day.

As always, today was another great gift of a day in the partly cloudy and cool south and we look forward to another good day tomorrow.
