Friday was a 'stay at home' day in the Fortuna De Oro RV Park. We chose to book a Tee time and play the full length, nine hole, golf course. Jeanette came along for the exercise. The course layout is actually very nice but the grounds have been neglected. I believe the new owners of this RV park - Cal Am - will have the entire place in ship shape within a couple of years. The company has already spent huge sums of dollars, slowly converting this place into a resort style facility.
Jeanette joined me for the walk and to keep score. With a foursome ahead of us - leading to slow play for us - I played two balls. That was like playing 18 holes of golf.
|Nice course layout.|
|My caddy for the day...but she didn't work too hard. I pulled the rented golf cart but Jeanette kindly chased a couple of errant golf balls.|

RVing friend, Hector - from Vancouver Island - and I played this golf course several times in the past couple of years and I look forward to our next round here; quite possibly in the new year.
We left Coyote Wash and headed north into the town of Welton and east into the Dome Valley. This is prime vegetable farming country. And there was plenty of activity. Hundreds of labourers were cultivating the lettuce and cauliflower crops. Riding on the motorcycle is so pleasant because we get to smell the fresh cut of these vegetables. It smells great during harvest.

By mid-afternoon Saturday, we rolled into Bernie and Rita's place for another visit and, by 4:30 pm, we headed to a recently established, first rate, smorgasbord restaurant. Now...that was one fine feast had. Lin's Grand Buffet restaurant is a going concern, offering top rate food and for the grand total of $11/person. Lin's has nine locations in Texas and Arizona. We'll go back there again!
Today, we start organizing our fiver to advance our preparations to leave tomorrow here tomorrow morning. The motorcycle will be tied down on the swivel wheel and other stuff will be stowed. It will be an otherwise relaxing day before our dinner gathering.
That's it from here. Thanks for dropping in.
