I’m not a big fan of California. It’s too crowded, too expensive, and just not my cup of tea. But one big exception is the Central Coast. If I had to live in California, it would be here. The other day I told you about our visit to Morro Bay. We spent yesterday in another […]

Where Did The Day Go?

Since we were going to be spending the day at home yesterday, I had big plans. I had a lot of emails to catch up on, a bunch of photos to sort through from our day trip to Morro Bay on Saturday, I was going to install the Silverleaf engine monitoring system on a new […]

We Have Visitors!

One of the greatest things about the RV lifestyle is meeting up with the many friends we have made in our travels all over the country. Sometimes these meetings are planned in advance and other times it’s more of a spur of the moment type thing. Or, just kismet. I can’t tell you how many […]

Since we didn’t have any plans or anything on our calendar, we treated ourselves by sleeping in yesterday morning. The fact that it got down into the 30s overnight was added incentive to stay snuggled under the covers once we woke up. Like we needed an incentive. Not! Eventually we did get up, and after […]

I Must Be Crazy

Seriously, I know a lot of you have suspected it for a long time, and now I’m beginning to wonder, too. We left the beautiful Oregon coast because it was getting cold, with temperatures down into the 40s at night. And where did we end up? On California’s Central Coast, where it was in the […]

Time To Move On

We have had a delightful week parked at our friend Nancy Kissack‘s place here in Atwater, California but it’s time to move on. I’m afraid that if I stay any longer she may have to put me down as a dependent on her tax return. Except for parking at my cousin’s house in Michigan, another […]

It rained all of Sunday night in Seaside and we had showers off and on all day long Monday. I think the warmest it got up to was about 62°. A typical Fall day on the Pacific Northwest coast. We are leaving for Newport this morning where we are scheduled for two weeks at Whalers […]

My father was a voracious reader and a great storyteller, and from as far back as I can remember, he would tell us stories about Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn rafting down the Mighty Mississippi, John Henry beating the steam drill and dying with his hammer in his hand, Paul Revere’s midnight ride, and magic […]

I Found It!

Every fulltime RVer gets asked one question from almost everybody they meet – “What’s your favorite place in the country to visit?’ I always tell people that I don’t have just one favorite. That’s like asking me which one of my kids I love the most. It’s impossible to choose just one. But I always […]

We spent yesterday getting to know two of my favorite artists a little better. One is known for the pictures he paints on canvas, and the other is even more famous for the pictures he paints with words. We started out in Salinas, at the National Steinbeck Center, where native son John Steinbeck is honored […]
