Borrego Springs, California: Dave and I said said goodbye to my family and hit the road back to SoCal. Renee will remain with Dad and Mary for a few more days.
We made only one stop along our route today and it is to the same place we most-always stop - Cardenas - a Costco-sized Mexican grocer. We left the Magna Peregrinusin the back of the parking lot and went inside Cardenas for one of their juicy rotisserie chicken and a package of freshly-made tortillas.
As we headed out of El Centro, we were passed by very interesting cargo - they seemed to be life-sized rocking horses (oops, I meant horsies). Thank goodness a certain 2-year-old boy I know wasn't with us!
It is nice to be back in Borrego Springs again. As I always say, there is just something about this sleepy little town that lures us back, time and time again.We have a nice campsite at the Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course (though our car only fits side-wise on the cement). The Springs at Borrego has a regulation 9-hole golf course. Their facilities are first-rate - pool, natural hot spring-fed hot tubs, game room, fitness center, library, party room, tennis, bocce ball, golf, on-site masseuse, yoga, Pilates, water aerobics, star-gazing, fire-side nights, wine tastings, on and on and on.
So much to do around here, we will explore tomorrow.
SLOGGER REPORT: Travel day?
Until my next update, I remain, your Borrego Springs correspondent.

Sites are large and each has a nice cement patio and picnic table. There are also different varieties of citrus trees all over, so you will never be lacking for a cocktail garnish in the winter. Free wifi. Fabulous warm pool and many hot tubs - all from their own hot springs! Fitness center, library, community rooms. Regulation 9-hole golf course. Recycling. Huge fenced dog park! We are paying $70 per night.
