Meeting Blogger Friends

Our regular readers know we had invited bloggers, Croft and Norma,  Croft's Mexico for coffee at our RV site in Desert Hot Springs, yesterday.  Meeting them for the first time, in person, felt as though we had known them for quite a long time.  They present as their blog reads; spirited, lively, engaging....and more.
L-R  Croft, Me, Norma and Jeanette is behind the camera.
It was a beautiful morning to enjoy outdoor coffee, banana bread, fresh peeled oranges and a lot of good discussions.   These well traveled RVers have many stories to share.  
Time went by so quickly
Shortly after high noon, Norma and Croft headed out of our park and - if you tune in to their blog, Croft's Mexico - you can read about how they ended up winning some spending money at one of the local casinos here in the Coachella valley.

We occasionally motorcycle up their way - at their home city of Campbell River, Vancouver Island, British Columbia - so we will get to see them again.   And depending where their winter travels take them, we could get together again somewhere here in the US southwest.
Outdoor RV Resort in Cathedral City
With an invite to join them for a late afternoon happy hour, Jeanette and I chose to motorcycle to Trena and Lucky's RV spot.
The Outdoor RV Resort - with 1200 RV spots - also boasts an 18 hole Par 3 golf course and a 9 hole Par 3 golf course.
To sharpen's one short game, this RV and golf resort is top class.  The grounds are meticulously kept.  The 18 hole golf course offers really good challenges. 
Wide roads and spacious sites give this resort a true five star feel.
Arriving at Trena and Lucky's site.
We enjoyed a late afternoon chat outdoors before heading to the on-site Italian restaurant for a nice evening meal. 
The spacious sites also offer good privacy.
 Starting their second year as members in this park, it is easy to see why this resort has a high rating.  People are very friendly and accommodating.

Jeanette captured this beautiful humming bird who showed a keen interest in tasting Trena's red wine. He/she almost succeeded
We're off on a motorcycle group ride today.  Although I earlier reported the ride would have us stop in Julian, that is no longer the case.  The group is heading to Oceanside, on the Pacific coast. Having done that ride in the past, we look forward to revisiting it again.

Thanks for dropping in.



  1. Great that you got to finally meet Croft and Norma over a morning coffee.
    And Happy Hour with Lucky and Trena with Italian supper .
    Enjoy your ride today.

  2. Glad to have you guys back in the U.S. safely, hope to catch up with you again soon, maybe at Lake Pleasant? Enjoy!

  3. What a fun filled day. I envy seeing you and Croft sitting outside in the sunshine!

    That Outdoor Resorts is a very nice park. We've driven through it once but I didn't know about the golf courses.
