  • Day336

    December 2-9

    December 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    We've had a couple days of much needed rain which brought snow to the San Jacinto and San Bernardino Mountains = beautiful views. Last Sunday we went to the Indio Tamale Festival with Chad and Leslie. I only wish we had the gastric capacity to sample more than 4 tamales out of the hundreds that were there. https://www.tamalefestival.net/
    Thursday we met cousin Steve at the Palm Desert Community Center for pickleball then had lunch with him and Carlene at Islands Restaurant. It was great seeing them and we're glad he's finally discovered the sport we love.
    Friday Chad and Leslie hosted an open house at their beautiful new (to them) motorcoach.
    Today had breakfast at Keedy's https://keedysfountaingrill.com/ and hit the College of the Desert Street Fair for some holiday shopping, listened to some talented musicians at Cat Spa's Sunday Jam and had friends over for an impromptu get together.
    Another fun and busy week and I didn't even mention wine tasting and trivia night, well...I guess I just did.

  • Day328

    November 25-December 1

    December 1, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

    We spent Sunday night at "Camp Monaco" in Coburg, OR for some minor fixes to the motorhome the following day. Wanting to take advantage of the calm dry weather we began our southerly migration at 4:00 Monday afternoon. Stopped for a three hour cat nap south of Stockton before arriving Tuesday afternoon at our winter destination in Desert Hot Springs, CA at Catalina Spa and RV Resort...a long but uneventful drive.
    Chad and Leslie were having a barbecue so we enjoyed dinner, a gorgeous sunset and connecting with friends old and new. Jim, Joy and Jess, who we met in Seaside, OR, are here. 😎🏜️
    No lack of activities here at Cat Spa, wine tasting Wednesday, Dillon's for bingo on Thursday getting our daily exercise on the pickleball courts. Competed in a Round Robin tournament on Saturday where we didn't medal but enjoyed some good competition and had lots of fun, despite the wind. Thanks Jim and Angie for organizing the event. Saturday night I attended a wine and cheese tasting hosted by Mike Thompson RV.

    Another great week at Cat Spa: wine, munchies and pickleball under the lights; dinner at La Bonita's in Palm Springs followed by Christmas shopping at Villagefest; smoked baby back ribs, mac & cheese and black forest cake at the Giltz's; soaking in the hot spring spas; watching the hummingbirds. 😎🏜️

  • Day347

    December 17-20

    December 20, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 73 °F

    Monday we joined a group from Cat Spa for some pickleball at the Sands RV and Golf Resort. Thanks to the "picklers" at the Sands for their hospitality. Tuesday we enjoyed the annual Christmas Cart Parade/Festival of Lights. Our friends Leslie, Chad, Jim & Angie had their bikes fully decorated. Wednesday I hiked the Magnesia Falls Canyon trail with Marc, Pattie and Karen. A bit more difficult than last year as some of the rock faces were a bit slick, but well worth the effort. This evening we had pizza at Bill's...delicious!
    Tomorrow we head back to Oregon for the holidays.

  • Day8

    January 1-8

    January 8 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    We departed Milwaukie, Oregon on New Year's day and arrived at our winter home at Cat Spa on the 2nd. Finally toured the Visitors Center at Pyramid Lake, very interesting and worth the stop. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vista_del_Lago_Visitors_Center
    We've been spending some quality time with our friends Phil and Dee who we met over four years ago while volunteering at Nehalem Bay State Park.
    Tonight we had a great time sipping, snacking and playing pickleball while admiring a beautiful sunset. Sometimes it feels like we never left our neighborhood in Gresham...Chad, Leslie, Mike and Paula all lived within a block of us and are also our neighbors here at Cat Spa.

    January 9-15

    January 15 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 52 °F

    We've had a great week doing the "usual": lots of pickleball, wine tasting and hanging out with friends. Friday we helped put up new wind screens at the pickleball courts then dined at Filipe's where we enjoyed excellent margeritas and mexican fare. Saturday we attended William Florian's tribute to John Denver. William has a great voice and is an excellent entertainer. http://florianmusic.com/index.htm
    Today we had a ladies lunch at Panera. It was nice to get together in a testosterone free zone. 😉 Many thanks to Heather for organizing the lunch and for her thoughtful gifts.

    Desert Hot Springs continues to bless us with sunny skies and warm weather. Cousin Steve and Karlene joined us one evening for dinner. Spent one Saturday morning wandering the College of the Desert Street Fair, a huge outdoor market. We met Steve and Karlene at one of their favorite hangouts, Mario's, for Superbowl Sunday... good drinks, good food, good company. We had a bocci ball tournament and happy hour with old friends from Oregon and new SoCal friends from the resort. We've been playing pickleball several times a week and even participated in a Valentine's Day tournament... no big winners here but lots of fun and good food.Read more

    Windy and cold on Monday, cold continues Tuesday...of course everything's relative with lows in the low 40's, highs in the low 60's. Wine and pickleball under the lights Tuesday evening.
    Wednesday we traveled an hour southeast with Jim, Nancy, Marc and Patti to hike the ladders trail in the Mecca Hills Wilderness. Up and down ladders, through slot canyons and along plateaus to view fantastic rock formations and vistas of the mountains, canyons and Salton Sea. https://www.alltrails.com/explore/recording/track-feb-21-01-30-pm--3
