All we did today was drive, drive and drive. 250 miles! It will be so nice to park in one place for more than two days at a time.
I do have to tell one strange little tale that has nothing to do with RVing at all, but it is just a very odd coincidence, I want to share. The other day, after lunch at Lemongrass in Sacramento, we both noticed a young (college aged) guy running down the street. We both noticed for a few reasons. One, he was a real runner – and by this, I mean he was built like a runner and he was clicking at about six-minute pace. Also, he was not wearing a shirt and it was about 34°. He was wearing black nylon running shorts, black socks and trainers. I also noticed he was blessed with very good looks, Latino, dark, long hair. Nice.
So what is so strange about seeing a dude running in Sacramento? Nothing, except I saw the exact same guy running yesterday in Merced! Seriously? Isn’t that just the oddest thing? Dude was still without a shirt. Hope Santa brings this handsome harrier a shirt.
Back to reality:
Highway 395, snapped through the windscreen. This was our view most of the day. The roads are in horrid shape. Bouncing and clunking all day. I am fearful of opening cupboards this evening.
Woot! Yes, we are going to OCCUPY this spot for several weeks, so get used to this view.
I know I will.
No need to rush out to restock our fridge for dinner tonight. Fresh greens from Brother Steve & Gina’s garden, plus red AND yellow tomatoes. Can you believe Gina is still harvesting tomatoes from the vine in December? The meal was rounded out with a bottle of Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio from Brother Billy & Ginger. The tomatoes were so firm and so sweet. Ripe throughout. Perfect! Please be very jealous.
I know I will.
Gina also gave us a huge bag of Satsuma’s from their orchards and another butternut squash. Ginger gave us a big bowl of lemons from her garden. So wonderful – delicious and organic!
I will leave you this evening with a (cell phone from Lisa) photo of Little Leo, in a snuggly thing, shopping with his Mommy this afternoon.
