With a quiet Sunday on the books, Jeanette and I felt like riding and, with no real destination in mind, headed east on Dillon Road and south on Highway 86. At the corner of S22, we rode west towards Borrego Springs.
|Nice day for a ride.|
|Very nice looking golf course. For me, this is a major attraction.|
|We both felt so attracted to this area that it may well become a drop in for our RV activities in the future.|
|Beautifully sculpted golf course with water and sand bunkers. It's easy to see how it would test a golfers metal.|
Borrego Springs is a census-designated place (CDP) in San Diego County, California. The population was 3,429 at the 2010 census, up from 2,535 at the 2000 census. Many residents are seasonal while others remain year round. Borrego Springs is completely surrounded by Anza-Borrego State Park, the largest of California's State Parks.
The village of Borrego Springs has a pueblo-style Visitor's Center & Chamber of Commerce near the heart of town. There are 2 shopping malls, several restaurants, accommodations of every kind and unique shops. There are no stop lights in Borrego Springs and night time lighting is kept to a minimum to protect the extraordinary magnificence of the starlit sky. Many describe Borrego Springs as a Palm Springs that existed 50 years ago.
|Heading further south from Borrego Springs.|
|Busy town....and a magnet for motorcyclists. We understand why.|
|We thoroughly enjoyed our drop in here.....and the coffee with pie was well worth the ride.|
Some other notable sights of the small town are the famous Dudley's Bakery, and Julian Apple Pie factory, The town serves as a gateway to the mountains of San Diego County, including the Laguna Mountains, Julian, and Palomar Mountain.
The photo below, with the door handles, spells the truth about entering the Julian Pie Company. The smells are so, so dramatic. The fresh baked pie smell emanates the entire building and captivate tourists to purchase a slice or two. We could not resist.
|Nice entrance to the Julian Pie Company.|

|Hanging out while breakfast preparation was underway.|
|Our little fella, Owen, was his usual happy little guy - unless hungry or needing a diaper change.|
|A relaxing time as Deni engages his mom in chat.|
|With breakfast completed, Owen had to join in with us and loves this sitting position. He can see what everyone is up to.|
|Time to head for the resort pools.|
|Ready.....set.......GO for the first dip in nice, warm water.|
|He was most relaxed with his dad in the pool.|
|Very near the end of his first swim, Owen sends signals that he is ready to shower and dry off.|
The little family left very early this morning for the drive back to Las Vegas and their flight back to Edmonton, Alberta. While here though, their visit was thoroughly enjoyed.
That covers things from here for now. Thanks for dropping in.
