Back to Borrego

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.

We bought a chicken, tortillas, just-made salsa & guacamole for dinner tonight... not to mention, a huge bag of key limes, lemons, cilantro (3 bunches for 99-cents!), bananas, green beans, lettuce, cucumbers, radishes (3 bunches for 99-cents!), avocados (5 for $1, not a typo), tortilla chips, fresh herbs and few other items for next to nothing. Fresh produce is ridiculously cheap at Cardenas, and that chicken will serve us well for several meals.

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.


Until my next update, I remain, your Borrego Springs correspondent.

 RV PARK: Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course - We have a paved pull-through site with full-service 50 amp. One of our very favorite RV parks on the west coast. 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.
