Back in California

Finishing our gallivanting for this year we are settling back in Southern California for most of the winter months. Officially snowbirds! We stopped in Palm Desert (and yes this area really is desert) for a few weeks since we arrived in CA a bit earlier than anticipated.

After leaving Colorado our next planned stop was in Prescott, AZ. Unfortunately when I called to make a reservation they were no spaces available. Tried another rv park and they were full until the end of October. I guess this time of year is their busy season. Good to know for future reference. But that put us several weeks ahead of our scheduled return. So, as we’ve done so often, we made some adjustments and decided not to stop in Arizona, continue on directly to California. Save that stay for another time.

Leaving the Rockies and grasslands of Colorado for the desert scapes of New Mexico our drive was uneventful. Continuing south on I 25, transitioning to I 40 west to Arizona. We stopped for the night at the meteor crater rest stop outside of Winslow, AZ. (And if you’ve never seen a crater before stop at the Meteor Crater during your travels it is an interesting piece of trivia in earths history.

http://meteorcrater.com/

560 ft deep, almost a mile in diameter, definitely impressive)

Very picturesque there at the rest stop , makes for a pleasant stop on the highway. Red rock hills. Native American arts and craft stores dating back to Rt 66 heydays. Some in ruins, some still in business.

Continued on the 40 to I – 17 south, more lovely scenery, at some places one can see the gorgeous red rocks of Sedona in the distance. Hit I – 10 west around Phoenix and the temperature became noticeably hotter and yes, more arid.

My favorite type of cacti 🌵. Always reminds me of the old westerns.

<<<We continued on, coming full circle back to California. For now we’re still in Palm Desert till Sunday, moving to Golden Village Palms in Hemet. That will be our home site until next February. 🌻🌻🌻No specific plans for the next few months other than obtaining regular maintenance for the coach, car and us. Our doctors are still here till we eventually/maybe make a change. In all likelihood there will be few posts the next few months. Chances are life will be mundane, almost boring to write about. But if something pops up, I’ll be back! 🍀🍀🍀Plans are always subject to change but our thoughts for next year are to head north when we leave here. Oregon and Washington beckon, I hear there are some beautiful spots up there. If you have any recommendations please let me know! 😄 🌵🌵🌵After that it’s heading southeast as we have an appointment with Freightliner in South Carolina in mid July. (I know, hot and humid time). From there Georgia then Florida. So far, that’s all I got. We’ll see how it all pans out. I thank you for following along with us this year. 🐾🐾🐾Hope to see you back when we get back on the road. 🐾🐾🐾Take care and wherever the road take you….Safe Travels!!FjK

Continuing southwest……

Okay, hopefully I can get through this post a lot faster than the last. Truly appreciate your patience and that you’re still reading. 👍😄

Our stay in Rapid City was very enjoyable. I loved the places we visited and as a suburban girl so liked the wildlife. One very interesting place also nestled in the Black Hills is the Crazy Horse Memorial. Located not far from Rushmore and Custer State Park. https://crazyhorsememorial.org/ “Acting as a repository for Native American artifacts, arts and crafts through the INDIAN MUSEUM OF NORTH AMERICA® and the NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL & CULTURAL CENTER®;”

As you can see the monument is still a work in progress. It should be phenomenal when completed. Model of the finished monument. On site is a museum, a Native American cultural and educational center. A huge undertaking, but a worthy endeavor. I hope they’ll be able to complete what was started so many years ago. As with everything it’s a matter of money. This is a model of the community it will be one day. Along with the cultural center, a university and student housing. We said goodbye to Rapid City, didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to the deer 🦌 family, and continued on. Travelled west on I 90, hit Wyoming, then south on I 25. Wyoming….this year we didn’t plan on any particular stop, saving it for another time. The drive through was wonderful, except for the wind and gusts. Traffic was practically nil, I got about an hours driving time. Woohoo!! We took our time traveling through marveling at the wildlife we saw along the way, miles and miles of open land. I was hoping to see the elusive jackalope. Searching the hills as we were driving I did catch a silhouette of what was a possibility sitting on top of a distant hill. Too far and driving too fast to get a good look. 😉Mostly we saw pronghorns, occasionally deer. Once an eagle 🦅 passed us, taking off from the median. At one rest stop a large black hog was wondering nearby. And when we stopped to get diesel these guys were hanging around. Deer everywhere. Then saw this guy sitting outside the Sinclair station. Used to see a lot of them when I was a kid. First I’d seen in many a year. These are snow fences. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_fenceOh and the welcome center/ rest stop at Cheyenne, Wy is well worth a stop. They’ve built a mini museum inside. Lots of Wyoming and western history, we must of spent an hour just looking through the displays. A lot of interesting things to see when we next go back. Continuing south on I 25, Colorado was next. Passed by the Broncos stadium And stayed at the Elks Lodge in Colorado Springs for several days. It is a pretty city. Though coming from places where life is less hectic it was a bit hard getting back to a place where it’s more. There’s an old town section on the north end of town, several blocks of stately manor homes some dating over one hundred years. Just curious as to the price range of some of the homes, way out of our price range, up to and over $1,000,000.00. Craftsman, Italianate, Tudor to Victorian and more so many different styles of architecture, it’s an enchanting historic area. William, of course, found a place to play Pickleball, Monument Valley Park. Seems the sport is quite popular there too! The park runs along Monument Creek and here is one of its residents. There are trails running along the creek great for walking, running, cyclists…. well maintained, rest rooms along the way, play grounds for the kids, benches. It was a joy to take a good long walk. Along with being a college town, it’s also a tourist town. The only two we visited were Garden of the gods and Pikes Peak. Garden of the Gods, at the foot of Pikes Peak. Balancing Rock It was a slow drive through the Garden of the Gods, the rock formations were fascinating. There are many trails through the area if one so chooses to hike. We didn’t. Though it was a thought. While there are plenty of wildlife we only came across two during our drive. Fortunately we were already driving slowly when a doe walked in front of our car to the other side of the road. As she crossed her fawn abruptly walked on to the road trying to follow. My window was down and I could hear the little gal calling for her mom. Such a cute little sound. She was standing along side my door staring at me with that cute little face and big ears, looking around for her mom, crying the whole time. She lost track of her mom as our car was in the way. Finally the fawn walked behind us, off the road, reunited with mom. Happy ending!Would have been good to get a picture but if I moved I thought she’d bolt, so just sat there watching. A couple of days later we drove up Pikes Peak. The forecast called for thunderstorms later in the day but it was a pretty morning and we started out early even though there were lots of clouds. Pikes Peak Highway is a toll road. The other option is cog train but at $40.00 a head the toll road was the cheaper option at $15.00 per person. (As we keep reminding ourselves we’re not on vacation, on a fixed income, so we still have to watch our pennies) The scenery was filled with aspens and pines,a touch of fall in mid September. Crystal reservoir This is as close as we got to see the real big foot. Just as elusive as the jackalope. Made it to the summit. Bright and sunny. It was 29 degrees that morning and ice on the ground. Beautiful viewsTotal cloud cover on this side of the mountain. Fun drive down. Fortunately I wasn’t the driver. At 14,115 ft above sea level, Pikes Peak isn’t the tallest in the Rocky Mountains, seems to be the most famous. The poem/song America the Beautiful was inspired by this mountain. It was an enjoyable day. The rest of our stay in CO Springs was getting ready to hit the road again (and Pickleball). Then headed south again to New Mexico. We traveled through, not stopping except at rest stops for meals and sleep, hitting I 40 west at Albuquerque. Views along the way. Wagon Mound (butte off I 25) Santa Fe Continental Divide On to Arizona and California Thanks for your time!! Wishing you a wonderful day and Safe Travels!

Part II

While I do try to be timely with publishing my blogs, sometimes I run in to delays.  Sometimes beyond my control, sometimes just because I’m a natural born procrastinator.  I do appreciate those of you who take the time to read my ramblings, following our travels and I don’t like to delay too long or disappoint.  Recently it has taken me several days to complete this last page, constantly getting errors when inserting pictures.

So please accept my apology while I search for solutions to correct this problem.  

Thank you and I hope you continue to follow us!

Take care & Safe Travels!

 

Continued……   South Dakota!

At Custer State Park…..

Lots of buffalo …. the ranger told us the herd is estimated to be about 1400.

And they insist on having the right of way……..who are we to argue!

Being up close and personal to these 2000 Lb giants is a little unnerving but it was awesome driving through the herd. There is always the possibility that a bull could charge. And the not so small calves are quite skittish. The slightest movement seems to send them running. Car damage was a concern but we came out unscathed. Amid the large herd that’s on the video was a small visitors rest stop a few miles in to our trek which was manned by one ranger. He was interesting and informative. The first thing he told us was to move back from the fence. They could charge and break through the fence like it was a matchstick. So we (and a few other people) backed up. Okay, so we were less than five feet from some of the big guys. 😐 kinda naive of us. He mentioned the herd travels far and wide and is only at his station every few weeks. So we had quite a treat watching them. He went on to give us some other pieces of trivia about the buffalo and the building we were in (old with some history that I can’t remember) till we got on rving and the buffalo were forgotten for awhile.

Till we got back in our car to continue the drive around the Wildlife Loop Road.

We drove by  this motley crew…..burros are much less intimidating.

img_8145-2
Prairie dogs galore but very hard to photograph from a distance. Those little dots are the prairie dogs and the mounds of dirt the gateways to their tunnels.

 

It was a pleasure driving through the 18 mile wildlife loop. From the prairie to the ponderosa pines, not knowing which inhabitant would be around the bend. That day the buffalo were abundant. We missed the elk, big horned sheep and mountain lions (really wasn’t too keen on getting too close to that kitty anyway).

We drove from the wildlife loop to needles highway, a stunning 14 mile drive through forests to rugged granite mountains. To the iron mountain road that crosses Mount Rushmore.

No room for motorhomes here.

 

 

Along rt. 16A on the way to Mount Rushmore we passed through the little town of Keystone. I’m not sure of the history of Keystone but like a lot of towns in SD I think at one time it was a mining town. There’s gold in them there hills!

It really is small. The sign announcing city limits cited population of 340. What makes this little town notable is the restaurants, the shops, the “western motif”. Truly for tourists but worth some of your time driving to/from Mt Rushmore.

Back on the road…..

We left Virginia on a Tuesday, the 8th. Heading west this time, Kansas City as our destination. William’s hometown.

The plan was to take several leisurely days to get to KC with hopefully no mishaps. But we never know what’s going to happen as we travel.

The first night was a travel center in Beckley, West Virginia. Just the usual truck stop, parking amidst the trucks. Relaxed, had dinner, then an evening walk. Next to the trucks, fuel stations, and stores, was a place called Tamarack advertising a buffet breakfast. We wandered up the hill and found a treasure. Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia. Lovingly landscaped, featuring sculptures.

Stupid me this is the only outdoor picture I took.

Walking around we found an area just for RV’s so we got the coach and parked there. Quiet, green, cooler. A nice spot to spend the evening.

Then we went over, strolled thru the gardens again and went inside to this……

A wolf in sheeps clothing

Beautiful woodwork

Gorgeous artwork

Cool chessboard and chessmen

My favorite “moonshine” jugs and cups.

Traveling on I 64 in Beckley WV, this place is definitely worth the stop. Everything is for sale, most too rich for my pocketbook, but the artistry is phenomenal, possibly see an artist demonstration on site. It’s worth wandering around just to enjoy. And maybe grab a bite to eat in their restaurant.

Driving through western Virginia and West Virginia, the mountains are just beautiful. Rolling green hills in summer; kaleidoscope of colors in the fall.

Seriously driving thru Charleston, WV

Usually when we stop on the road for the night it’s at a rest stop on the interstate. They’ve been good experiences. Rest stops vary from state to state; from attractive landscapes with lots of amenities and food choices to barely a candy machine, port-a-potty and picnic table. Sure sometimes the trucks can be loud, but we tuck ourselves away in the coach, watch some tv. We’re comfortable, we’re home. Until one night…..

…….I woke up in the middle of the night, must of been around 2am, to the most awful smell. Worse that a barnyard in the middle of a hot, muggy summer. Then I came aware of strange, anxious noises; and mooing! Looked out the window and there were not one but two transport cattle trucks parked next to us. One unhappy cow was making a racket, totally irritated, constantly mooing and whining. She kept kicking against the sides of her cage and scraping the floor. Occasionally other cows joined the chorus, but mainly it was just one that I heard. I kept wondering if she was upset over being cooped up, mad cause the truck stopped or upset over her destination. This went on a few more hours. Oh that smell…..funny tho I kinda got used to it after awhile. We both were able to get back to sleep. By the time I got up in the morning both trucks were gone. William mentioned that there was some manure on the side of the coach and a lot on the ground. Now he was the irritated one.

Fortunately an evening like that has been the exception.

Continuing our travel west we had another engine warning message, same problem that we’ve had three times before. The next Freightliner center was Lexington, KY. We stopped there but they couldn’t see us for a couple of days, too busy. So we continued down the road to Louisville and made an appointment for the next morning at the center in Clarksville, IN (just across the river from Louisville). Got there before they opened and waited. They took the coach in pretty early and we left for breakfast at a local diner.

Went back to the service center to check on the progress, they were checking things out but it was going to be awhile. Decided to check out Louisville proper. Drove across the Ohio River and found the Muhammad Ali Center to tour.

There’s a river walk near the center, it was a lovely day and lovely place to take a stroll.

Thought about taking a dinner cruise but our time there was too short.

Ali’s grave is at a nearby cemetery, Cave Hill Cemetery.

Col Sanders of KFC is also buried in the same cemetery.

Nearby was the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory. Didn’t get a chance to visit but it’s on our list for next time.

There’s always more to see.

But we needed to get back to the coach and see good news or bad.

Fortunately it was good news, more or less. While they couldn’t duplicate the original problem they did trouble shoot, tighten up and all around checked things out. We were back on our way.

The rest of the trip was uneventful. We made it to Lawrence, KS safe and sound on that Sunday morning.

Till the next time.

Safe travels!

Gloucester, VA

We left MD on July 13th, got to Gloucester in a few hours the same day. Stayed at Chesapeake Bay, another Thousand Trails rv park. Situated along the Piankatank River.

l

This was a nice three week down time for us. While there is plenty to do and see in this region, Williamsburg, Jamestown, Busch Gardens, we decided to just “chill” most of the time, this time around.
There are 4 Pickleball courts, nice courts, on and off a number of regulars there were around, so William was able to get some game time this stay.

my favorite spot

The one town we did drive around (we never explored before) was Yorktown. Small town, I was just curious as to what was there. On the banks of the York River. Seems there are a few buildings standing from the 1700’s.


look closely to see two cannon balls in this picture embedded in the wall. while legend has it those were from a battle during the revolutionary war. Fact or fiction, I guess we’ll never really know for sure.

Situated strategically on the York River, a wide history from colonial times through the Civil War. A small beach on the riverfront, several shops and dining on the river walk. It was a sunny day and enjoyed the walk around the whole town.


this structure was by the river walk, though we have no idea what it is or used for….. any thoughts?

Virginia time was some family time too. We spent one afternoon visiting Bill and Nicole at their home in Newport News. And met Tuco!

Then one Saturday Bill, Nicole and kids came over to the park for the afternoon and BBQ.

Nicole, Bill, Megan, Joel. ❤️

Joey took this selfie….. good shot except we only see Megan’s forehead.

There was foosball ……

and miniature golf…..

and I miss them…..

Every now and then we see some interesting things along the road.

The gas station is long gone but the sign still remains.

Our time in Virginia was enjoyable, but as usual we were looking forward to getting back on the road.

Till next time

Safe Travels where you may roam.

Back home….Oh the Humidity

Arrived at Cherry Hill RV Park, College Park, MD on July 6th. (Just a few miles outside of Washington D C)

Back home because the family home is a few miles from this park in Berwyn Heights. My brother and sister went to high school just down the street. Mine, many years later, is on the other side of town. Mom and Dad are no longer with us. Departed '98 and '03 respectively. Amazing how much I still miss them after all this time, coming back makes the ache more pronounced. The house is still in the family. The same, but different.

My daughter, Angela, lives and works near by. Carla, my youngest, lives about a half hour away, just outside of Baltimore.
Work got in the way so we weren't able to visit right away. We all went out to dinner the following Tuesday evening.

It was great to spend the time with them, but, of course, it was too short.

On Sunday had a wonderful visit and dinner at cousins Fran home.


Fran, Fran & Fifi

What a great family visit. Cousin Kathleen joined us for dinner. And Fran's mom, Aunt Jo, ninety-seven in just a few months.


Aunt Jo ….. isn't she gorgeous!

We're not in Maryland very often so I do try to make a pilgrimage to the cemetery whenever possible. Always a few tears to shed.

The Washington DC region has an abundance of sites to see depending on your interests. So much history here inside and outside the Beltway. Beer and crab fests (if you haven't had a Chesapeake Bay blue crab crab cake you are in for a treat. Nothing compares!); concerts, oh and casinos, too. Gambling used to be illegal not too many years ago. Name your vice it's probably here.

On a Monday we traveled to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

Tomb of the unknowns. Changing of the guard. Impressively, beautiful ceremony.

From a distance we thought it was a real funeral procession. Turns out it was only a practice run. Complete with a casket.

From Arlington we drove to Mount Vernon. George and Martha Washington's home. A beautiful home next to the Potomac River.

Amazing that this is the original building and not a reproduction.


Tomb of Martha & George W.

The property is vast and well maintained. Most of the items in each building are reproductions, though there are a few items in the main house that are original, unfortunately we were not allowed to photograph them.


Slaves quarters

Transportation

A few days later we took the metro to downtown DC. (Tip: if you do travel to D.C., the metro, rail and/or bus, is the best way to get there. Traffic in town is horrendous and parking is impossible)
We've been there before but there's always something different to see.


Mr Lincoln

Jefferson memorial


A view from the Washington Monument

World War II Memorial


Momma duck with her ducklings at the reflecting pool.


Vietnam War Memorial



Martin Luther King Memorial

The following several pictures are of FD Roosevelt Memorial. A long, winding pathway, several sections of FDR's legacy. So serene, almost spiritual in its setting.
I thoroughly enjoyed this more than most.


They wouldn't leave us alone, kept chasing after us. Of course, that was more than likely due to William throwing potato chips at them. Who knew they loved pringles?

After this we pretty much called it a day. Got on a bus to get closer to the metro station for the ride back. Can only guess about how much we walked that day. Not to mention the temperature was about 100. And the humidity….oh the humidity ….was close to 100. But that's normal for this area. I was drenched and my hair was frazzled. Whatever! We had a wonderful day!

That Thursday Angela invited us to dinner. The main course was one from Mom's recipes (pasta and chicken) which was wonderful. Grandma would be proud. Thoroughly enjoyed, plus she made chicken cutlets for William. One bad family trait, she made too much. The leftovers were welcomed tho, she had a few dinners for herself and we had lunches from the cutlets.

I hadn't been back to the house in ages. And tho furnishings were different it was still Mom and Dads home. Their presence was still there surrounding me. It was a good visit with Angie and I'm so happy she invited us.

And we got to meet Buster!

On Saturday we drove down to Quantico, VA. About an hour an a half south of where we were. William's granddaughter Nuri is stationed there for OCS – Officers Candidate School, U. S. Marine Corps.

We had a nice visit and dinner. It was fascinating for me listening about her training, her goals. As a Marine himself, William had tons of questions. The conversation flowed the whole evening.

Earlier in the day William and I explored the Marine Corps Museum. It's fairly new, from 2007, still parts unfinished. You can see the top of the museum from I-95. It's worth the time to explore. A stunning tribute to our Marine Corp, past to present.

While there were many exhibits, interesting in itself, what was most moving to me was the artwork. Most of the artists are Marines. "Go to war, Do art"

Outside the main building as you walk along the wooded pathways, quiet and serene, there are tributes, monuments dedicated to those who fought, who died, remembering the battles, from the beginning to the present.

At the end of the path there is a chapel, elegant in its simplicity. A place for anyone regardless of what God one believes. A chapel for any denomination, as is the practice of any military base.

The rest of the stay in Maryland was quiet and restful. It was good to be there if only for a little while. The only down side — the humidity. Oh the humidity. Sweating from morning till the next morning. Quite thankful for a/c. I remember as a kid, our house did not have a/c. Just fans. The first a/c Daddy bought was a window shaker stuck in the dining room window. The little things one remembers.
I will say there is one benefit to all this humidity. I had forgotten how soft my skin used to be before I moved out west. Years of dry heat really did dry out my skin. It's kinda nice…..for now.

Till the next time!

Safe Travels!

Pennsylvania 

Traffic jam Lancaster

Our ride from Ohio to Lancaster was blissfully uneventful.  We took our time, William only driving about three hours or so each day.  There was no hurry, especially since I miscalculated by one day and couldn’t revise our reservation.   
Circle M RV Campground nestled in lush green woods next to the Conestoga River.  This park doesn’t assign sites so it took quite awhile to find one  that would work for us.  Plus it was very crowded due, I think, to the upcoming July 4th holiday weekend.   On a suitable spot the current resident was just packing up his coach, getting ready to leave so we waited and as he drove off we claimed it as ours, temporarily that is. 

This place was pretty nice overall.  Indoor and outdoor swimming pools, which seemed to be where most people spent their time, kids especially.   One perk for William was a very nice pickleball court.  Unfortunately very few people were interested in playing.  Still, we enjoyed our stay there.   

We visit Gettysburg on Saturday, several days before the 154th anniversary of the Battle, which occurred July 1st through 3rd, 1863.  It’s a solemn place in many ways. For what those that fought there endured; the loss of life was staggering, as were the casualties.  Townspeople told to evacuate, homes turned in to headquarters and hospitals; crops destroyed, fields now graveyards (many still buried there). A country so widely divided that war seemed the only path to bring it back together.  At such a high cost.  

There are few buildings still standing. 

This is the Lydia Leister house.  A cannonball did damage part of her home, she had it repaired after she returned to her home. 

She and her daughters had to leave her two room home that General Meade turned in to his headquarters of the Army of the Potomac during the three day battles. 


Reenactments:  a field surgeon here.  


Pharmacy supplies 


This block is actually tea.  I was told they scrape the block and then brew.  It’s supposed to have a very good flavor.   

Union soldiers.


Lots of monuments both Union and Confederate….. 


Lots of cannons too. 
Philadelphia was the next trip. 

The Liberty Bell
Benjamin Franklins burial spot.
Independence Hall
A conversation with Ben Franklin and James Madison.


William’s first Philly cheesesteak  👍

Streets of Philadelphia
Tun Tavern. Said to be the birthplace of the Marine Corp. Unfortunately there is only a marker, the tavern no longer stands.



Museum of Art; and Rocky’s steps.

And yes, William did the run!! 

On our trips I usually use google maps GPS. On the way out of Philadelphia we made one little wrong turn. Of course the GPS rerouted. We ended up driving thru New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland before we finally got back to Pennsylvania.  Funny thing tho, it only took us an extra 30 minutes longer in our return trip.  

Back in Lancaster I found out there are still many covered bridges.  They date back to the mid 1800’s.  



Cornfields everywhere. 

A pretty country church.  

A lot of evenings we just hang out at home.  Sometimes busy, sometimes relaxing. Some evenings when the weather is nice, which it has been a lot lately, just siting outside, enjoying a cool breeze.  Brought back memories of home in Berwyn Heights sitting in our back yard enjoying another cool breeze, watching the fireflies at dusk.  I haven’t seen them in so many years, maybe it’s just too dry in California for fireflies.   

Safe travels!

Ohio…… 

Our trip through north Ohio was to visit with our granddaughter, Nadia in Painesville. It was wonderful to see her, so glad we did! 


She’s off to law school in Boston this fall!! 👍

Enjoyed the drive to Cleveland, there was more to explore if we had more time.  Next time! 

We took off south to Canton.  Home of the NFL Hall of Fame.  A must see for any football enthusiast.  As luck would have it a cousin was in Canton for several weeks for business and we met for dinner!  Stephanie and Al! 


Who’d of thought we’d meet our NY/Florida cousins in Ohio!  

There’s a lot to see in Canton.  Unfortunately we only stayed a few days.  But we did see the NFL Hall of Fame.  As much as I was enthralled with Rock & Roll, William was with this one. 

I did not know that the NFL had its beginnings in Canton. 





Hmmmm……..how did this guy get here….. 😉


As of this year only 310 have been inducted in to the hall of fame.  A very exclusive club. 

Right now we are in Lancaster,  PA.  We’ll sit here for a couple of weeks before we move on.  

Until next time!  Safe travels
