Where are we Today ?
|88 miles today|

Just before we got into town we spotted a good place to boondock. (Free camping in the desert with no hookups). A dozen or more rv's set up here maybe half with Canadian licence plates. So we found a nice spacious spot of "home dirt".
Now all set up , had a bite for lunch and in the little car off to Borrego Springs in search of Galleta Meadows and to see how many of the 129 steel sculptures (by artist Ricardo Breceda) we can locate in the surrounding desert.
Well we searched and we drove on roads, desert trails, pathways, should of had a Jeep for this, but we enjoyed more than three hours, locating some of his great artwork. We had a map with general locations of where his work was spread around town, but mostly we scanned the desert spotting them in the distance. A few pictures here and the rest are in the slideshow at the bottom of todays posting.

Well after our fill of exploring we returned to home dirt, get out our chairs and read for a while in the sun and the shade. And while sitting here a fellow RV'er noticed our Ontario licence plates and stopped by to chat for a bit. They are from Bownmanville Ontario only a few hours from where our home base is and spend their winters in southern California and Arizona as well.

Oh and thanks Larry for reminding us to stop here.
