Lazy Day

Borrego Springs, California:  Friday in Borrego is market day. After visiting the Farmers Market three weeks in a row, I have determined the market serves many purposes. Fresh veggies, eggs, fruit, meats and cheeses, of course - but most people are simply gathering with their friends chatting, laughing and telling tales. Since the market is held in the public park in Christmas Circle, everyone brings their dog.

I know you too well, Sweet Reader. You would rather see a photo of a dog than another perfectly white head of cauliflower.

Guess what? We moved campsites again today! That makes seven times since we arrived in Borrego Springs nearly three weeks ago. We only had to move from site #107 to site #803 within The Springs at Borrego RV Resort today - and it will be our last move as we are actually leaving Borrego Springs Tuesday. Maybe it would be wise to make reservations for Borrego Springs a year in advance as our fellow campers advise? Rumor has it, this resort is constructing 50 additional campsites this spring. Though the sites would be full over the winter, temperatures reach into the 115° area during the summer and there are days when the campground is completely empty. Feast or famine out here in the desert.

Look familiar? We have been in this site before!

I titled this column "Lazy Day", but in truth, it was only me being lazy. My Driver was at the fitness center so long, I actually went over to check on him... but two hours later he was still on the exercise bike, trying to make up time lost running with time on the bike.

The mind of a runner is a terrible thing to waste.

Since my laziness over-lapped into the kitchen, we had a very untraditional Shabbat at Carmelita's Mexican Restaurant in Borrego Springs. You know the evening is going to be good with fresh salsa and an icy cold Manischewitz Margarita.

Until my next update, I remain, your lazy correspondent

RV PARK: The Springs at Borrego RV Resort & Golf Course. One of our very favorite RV parks on the west coast. Sites are large and each has a nice cement patio and picnic table. Cement 50 amp pull-throughs will full service. There are also different varieties of citrus trees all over, so you will never be lacking for a cocktail garnish in the winter. Slow 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 $64 per night for a "premium" site.
