Wed. Dec. 29th 2010 Ramona CA

Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, 
 since August 2006
      I had to look at this today because we had no sunshine at all for the whole day. It rained all night and it rained all day. There would be a heavy rain, and start to let up then heavy again then almost let up and so on all day long. Well got the umbrella out and open our awning so we could get out for a bit and a walkabout. I did not take any pictures outside today because of the constant rain. We did not notice any mudslides or problems in this area, I am thinking probably because of the trees, grass and rocky soil.

      I went to town (Ramona) about a 5 mile drive down the winding mountain road. It is a fun drive in the car, we did not notice as much coming up here with our coach thou. Well into town i went and checked out the three grocery stores Albertson's and Stater Bros were typical for this area, large and a good selection. Then the IGA a little smaller was fun, I could have sworn I was in Mexico. The loud Mexican music is the first thing, then a distinct odor from the bakery, spices and meat counters. Fresh baked Mexican buns (bollos) and pastries (pasteles), and the products available on the shelves, some items I have only noticed in Mexico especially the fresh meat counter. Also a lot of the signs in both English and Spanish, an interesting shopping experience.

       Back home a bite to eat for lunch then a good day to do the laundry. The laundromat here was unique in that it was like a screened in front porch on somebody's house. A little to cool and damp to sit outside in the rain so I just relaxed in the car with my book. The laundry goes much quicker with a book. Back home we researched a bit more on the area for things to see and do. And I carved up a huge pork loin roast we bought on sale, we got 20, one inch thick boneless chops and a nice pork roast out of it for less than seventeen dollars, good deal. So after that we had a pork roast for supper that I had removed from the freezer earlier to make room for the new meat. This was combined with some left over rice, corn and sauerkraut for a tasty meal. And some applesauce as well.
      Then afterwards a relaxing evening, chatting, reading and a few minutes of tv.
Thanks for stopping by.
