Aug 10, 2010 - Santa Margarita, CA - Vallejo, CA

Left Santa Margarita and the hill behine and headed towards San Fransisco. It was a nice drive with a mountain backdrop and miles of fields containing lettuce, cabbage, spinach and peppers. I'd prefer it be fields of medium rare steak or chocolate brownies. Got stuck in a traffic jam in Solinas so took a detour to Monteray, home of the Monteray Pop Festival. Pretty little town and if you like fish all the better. That's all you can smell! What a difference in the temperature though, 63 degrees. I thought California was always sunny and...

Jun 27, 2010 - San Francisco

We awoke this morning to a beautiful, cool morning. While I went walking, Jimmy took Taco out to let her run around and play for awhile. After getting back, I watched the Batley Baptist Church service on Internet because I could not find a church with an early morning service. That is the home church of the McKameys, my favorite gospel singers. We drove into San Francisco, 27 miles away. We parked at Pier 27 for $10.00 and walked on down to Pier 39 where we looked around at the sights including watching the sea lions sunbathing and...

Jun 26, 2010 - Into California

Saturday: Today, we were up at 3:05am PT. Jimmy made his daily phone call to his mother while having his coffee. We got on the road at 4:00am PT. We had a nice drive today, traffic still heavy in some areas and back in some mountains. The speed limit for us was 55 mph because we were towing. I was still having allergy problems, but my medication began to take effect and gave me some relief. We have stopped in Vallejo 30 miles from San Francisco at Tradewinds RV Park. It has 78 sites and there are very few sites empty. We traveled 10 hours...

Oct 25, 2009 - San Francisco: les nationalités

Nous constatons depuis notre séjour dans la région de San Francisco qu'il y a beaucoup de gens d'origines hispanique et noire, partout. Rappelons que la Californie est un ancien territoire du Mexique qui a été cédé aux US vers 1850. Raison pour laquelle tous les services et consignes sont offerts en 2 langues (anglais et espagnol) et que les habitants sont typiquement espagnols (dans leur allure, leur langage, leur habillement et leur comportement). Notre visite à un très gros centre commercial durant cette journée nous confirme cela, tous...

Oct 24, 2009 - SF: des parcs et des plages

Cette journée a été consacrée à la visite de quelques parcs et de plages des environs, ce que nous faisons toujours dans les villes où nous faisons des arrêts, afin de voir comment ils utilisent leur environnement. Nous nous rendons tout d’abord au Benicia State Park, un petit coin de verdure situé sur l’une des baies et qui offre un beau panorama sur les bateaux de plaisance. Mais le plus beau est la Kellers beach, alors que nous nous trouvons en face de San Francisco et qu’il est possible de voir la ville et le Golden Gates sous le...

Périple CAN-USA-MEX

Oct 19, 2009 - Vallejo: pas loin de Frisco

Départ d’Yreka en Californie du nord, pour une descente vers San Francisco. Une descente c’est bien dit car on passe plusieurs kilomètres de montagnes et de canyons vertigineux, mais avec des paysages à couper le souffle. Puis nous arrivons dans la plaine de Sacramento où des champs à perte de vue s’offrent à nous. Et assez surprenant, il semble que cette région soit de climat méditerranéen, ce qui explique les vastes plantations d’oliviers et les rizières…! En effet, des usines-silos comme ceux dans le vieux port de Québec traitent le riz...

Feb 11, 2008 - Enough of Northern CA already

As I said in our last post, we continued to weigh our options for positions around the country while we were at Klamath CA. Well, after 14 inches of rain in the month of January we decided sunny Florida was calling us. We accepted a position as activity directors in Port Richey Fl. Starting date Feb 18th, so we gave our one week notice and headed out. Enclosed are a few photos of our trip across country. Just prior to our departure a juvenile whale washed up on the beach a few miles from the campgound. Media reports state the whale was dead...
