Feb 13, 2019 - Rain going to Santa Barbara

11-13 Left at 2:30 pm in the rain...lots of rain. Going to Bonnie's grade school friend's (Linda) home. Two hours for a one hour drive...not bad. Curt made Eggplant Parmesan for dinner and I attempted to video and make a movie...my new undertaking, making movies, ha! Making Eggplant Parmesan Not as successful as I would have liked...for some reason it wouldn't accept parts so that's why the !!! Back to the drawing table! But the eggplant parmesan was delicious! --- 11-14 Bon and Linda went out for a 5.5 mile walk during the most windy and...

Jan 16, 2019 - Rancho Oso - Day 3

Day 8. Wednesday 16th Jan Bit clearer today & we did have a little knock around on the pickleball courts on our way up another one of the nearby trails to look for a couple of geocaches. Neither of these had been found since 2017 but they were both still there. The gps coordinates were well out but with the help of the hints for each cache we managed to find & log them. Another session of Wi-fi in the lodge with a couple of woodpeckers knocking away on the roof. There’s quite a few about. It’s just surprising how few people we see around...

Jan 15, 2019 - Rancho Oso - Day 2

Day 7 . Tuesday 15th Jan Another rainy day so we got to explore more of the facilities around the camp. There is lots to do but nobody seems to be doing much especially with the weather the way it is at the moment. There are two lodges or club houses with TVs, lounges & games rooms. Wi-fi is available at one of the lodges but despite there being 70 or 80 RVs & caravans on site we didn’t see many people at all, just a couple or so using the Wi-fi in the lodge. There was no service in this valley for our new phone so we couldn’t use that...

Jan 14, 2019 - Rancho Oso

Day 6. Monday 14th Jan. A dull & windy start to the day so we took the opportunity to familiarise ourselves with the RV. It really is big & chunky being some 10ft wide overall with big door mirrors sticking well out. It’s just a big box on wheels with a fixed bed at the back beside a shower room & toilet with the wash sink outside. The kitchen is in the middle with a sink & a three burner hob, no normal oven but a microwave oven above. Poor old Viv is missing her stool now, she can’t hardly reach the microwave. Without a gas oven we can’t...

Nov 26, 2018 - Santa Barbara

As much as we loved the time we spent at the Hearst Casle, we were ready to move on from San Simeon as it had very little to offer. Our drive to Santa Barbara was a beautiful one along hwys 1 and 101 and also 154 through the mountains. We just couldn’t get enough of it. Getting to the Castillo Inn was very easy and it is a very nice Inn. We’d highly recommend you stay here if you are passing through. We arrived in Santa Barbara around noon so we had very little time to explore. We took a nice walk down State St and visited the Court...

Our 5 week adventure

Apr 25, 2017 - Linda, Curt, & Nancy

Drive up the coast and with help from Sofi (our GPS lady) since we have very old paper maps... Curt and Linda are in the midst of remodeling, plus Curtis' Mom has taken a turn for the worse (at 90s). Had a short visit with Curt before he had to fly out to Portland. Later, we had a nice outing/dinner with Linda and Nancy catching up and the 3 of them planning to do a trip together come fall?!

Apr 21, 2017 - Leaving at last for Santa Barbara

We had to have our shower enclosure replaced because after 12 years shaking down the road, the door was having problems and there were no replacement parts. A custom enclosure had to be manufactured. It took much longer than we had hoped (a week late) but when it finally arrived and was installed, we breathed a sigh of relief. We departed Garden Grove today on a Friday afternoon to Santa Barbara Elks, which normally would be about a 2 to 2 ½ hours’ drive but on a Friday afternoon, that becomes a 4 hour drive. The pace was slow and tedious...

Mar 18, 2017 - To Curt and Linda's

In the midst of a remodel we visit Bon's grade school friend in Santa Barbara...one night and then back to Nancy's one night and then Monday, back to C & L's ! Ha! Great to catch up both places and I enjoy listening to the political banter.... 3/20 Todd's Birthday we're back to L & C's, great dinner of cheese fondue with Nancy coming over as well...

Sep 17, 2016 - Santa Barbara touring

Escape to Santa Barbara Saturday, September 17th: Fremont Campground to Santa Barbara and back Weather: mid-60s morning, mid-80s afternoon on the coast but 100s in the Santa Ynez Valley behind the Santa Ynez Mountain Range Route: Paradise Road to CA-154 to US-101 to the Downtown Santa Barbara exit Our plan to escape the afternoon heat of the Santa Ynez Valley was to drive the 12 miles back through San Marco Pass (gas mileage be damned!) to the cooler coastal Santa Barbara. After a leisurely breakfast and re-organizing the gear we had...
