|Eastbound from San Diego|
|A stunning viewpoint at about 4,000 feet, looking east towards the Salton Sea on Highway 79 north.|
|One of the many lunch and pie spots in town.|
|Vintage motorcyclists rolling in.|
|The black, 1940's vintage Indian motorcycle above is owned by a mid-30's fella from Idaho who's grandfather owned and rebuilt this beautiful ride. What a beauty.|
|This 1940's Harley Davidson, with side car, carried a mid-80's motorcycle couple. What a joy to chat them up!|
|I could not confirm the age of this old motorcycle but is easily dates back to the 1930's.|
|This couple rode beautifully restored 1960's Harley Davidson motorcycles.|
|And this mid-80's couple, from Arizona, suffered a broken windshield caused by the strong winds they rode in.|
|We enjoyed a nice lunch in Julian before heading further north and back to our winter RV parks.|
Rolling back into Palm Desert by mid-afternoon, Lucky and Trena were the first couple to be dropped off at their Outdoor RV Resorts park in Cathedral City. From there, we drove to 1000 Palms where Hector and Diane were to retrieve their beautiful Portuguese Water dog, Chico to return to our RV park.
Well, Art and Connie (the dog sitters during our San Diego getaway) along with Hector's sister, Roz and husband Stan had already planned dinner for us. What a nice surprise that was. Roz and Stan hosted and we enjoyed a fine outdoor dinner. Hector and Roz's sister, Sharon who is visiting from Newfoundland, got to enjoy a nice visit together too.

I, on the other hand, enjoyed a quiet day. With several errands completed by 10:00 am, the awning and sun shade re-installed, and the barbecue and chairs set up once again, I followed some of the PGA golf on TV before getting in the shade of a low 90's outdoor temperature; relaxing on my outdoor recliner while listening to a nice variety of music from my iPod.
We look forward to a very special visit from family early next week....and are preparing for that. More to come later.
Thanks for dropping by.
