Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer,
since August 2006
Today is bright and sunny for a day that's supposed to be rainy. But a walkabout the resort checking out the unheated pool (they only heat it in the summer, go figure) and hot tub then after a chat with a few people we decided to hop in the car and head west. I did notice an old baby blue Volkswagon in showroom shape just like my 1973 Bug, very nice! And an old Dodge motorhome, the same one we saw at St. David Resort in Arizona.

At this point we hopped on I-5 and headed south to see if we could find our way home. Noticing the rolling hills and houses built on the edges of them on pillars and stilts, no wonder they have a problem with houses sliding down the hills here after heavy rains! It looks like not enough flat land here to build on so not much can be done about that. We headed east on CA 56 and look for a place to grab a bite to eat. In the city of Carmel Mountain Ranch we saw a plaza with a few stores and restaurants we spotted a interesting looking hole in the wall Chinese Restaurant (Chop Sticks) with half a dozen tables. Well a great meal here at a good price, the lunch specials, soup, egg rolls, garlic chicken for Suzie, Sweet and Sour pork for me with rice and veggies. So much food and so tasty the whole thing was $14.00 including taxes and tip, much better deal than a fast food place. After this we walked about the Target store for a while, checking things out, huge lineups at the cash so, not desperate enough for anything to stand in long lineups we just window shopped.
Now back home around 4:00 pm get our books out and relax, it begins to rain about one hour after we got here, no matter, we had a great day exploring some more of southern California, and no supper tonight after such a great late lunch.
