We rode east on Dillon Road before turning south on Highway 86. Choosing to ride Highway 111 to Brawley - along the eastern shore of the Salton Sea - we were rewarded with very little traffic.

The vegetable farming lands, prevalent in this area, were very green.

While at the Ford dealer, Ginette 'Face Timed' me and I was so pleasantly surprised to see our newest grandchild, Brie (40 days old), having a nice sleep while her mother spoke with me. Easton was out for a walk with his dad but he did return home and I was able to spend some nice time with him too. By reversing the camera on our iPad, he was able to see our truck in the service bay and was quick to point out that it was his Grand Papa's truck. That was a nice 'Face Time' visit had. We fully intend to be back for Easton's 2nd birthday this April 10th. Looking forward to that!

Yesterday, Mike - one of the gracious hosts here at Sam's Spa and RV Resort - remarked how the Santa Anna winds - more prevalent at this time of the year - were stronger than normal. That said, the winds are warm. They come and they go.
This RV park is quickly losing its winter clientele. With our departure this coming Tuesday - and more leaving daily - it won't be long now before the park is ghost like. More than half the available sites are vacant.
As I am about to post this blog, the wind is showing signs of abating somewhat. That bodes well for another nice desert day here in southwestern California.
That covers it from here for now. Thanks for dropping in.
