Homeward Bound

Finally looks like the weather is cooling down in our “home” area, so we are planning on heading that way.  We did not plan to be gone very long and sort of left most every thing open to the elements, so we are not sure what we will be getting back to.  Might be kind of interesting. 

Yesterday I played golf for the first time in over three years or more.  Surprisingly I was pleased that I did as well as I did.  There were some bad shots, but overall it was good.  I was forced to quite back then due to my arms that actually stopped working, it got so bad that I had to have help getting dressed.  Doctors were unable to find a cause, but eventually it slowly got better.  Getting old is truly not for sissies. 

Some of our hometown friends were passing through the area and we got to spend some time with them the other day.  We were like two ships passing in the night.  They have been on a four month RV trip to the east coast.  Great seeing them even if it was a short visit. 

So here we go, leaving the base we spotted this doe and her twin fawns.  They couldn’t have cared less.  The deer population is really growing, they are every where.


One of the few flower fields near Lompoc, most have been harvested, but still a few around.

Driving along the coastal highway.


Fog just starting to lift.


Strawberry field. Don’t think I would get any picked, most likely I’d just stand there gazing at the ocean.


Mission Bells on 101 Freeway

The mission bells seen on the 101 Freeway and other locations have been in place since the early 20th Century to mark the original route of El Camino Real (Spanish for Highway of the King or Royal Highway) from San Diego to Sonoma.


Million dollar view.  State park, and it is all about location, location, location. 



Getting close, familiar sights.


Awwww, home at last, good trip, no problems to speak of, AND no tire mishaps, that is a very good thing.
