Borrego Springs, California: Our day started with beautiful sun, so we were out the door early for bicycling (DT) and jogging (me), because we heard it was supposed to get windy and stormy later.I run on this road
I stopped to see my friend - he and his pals are busy picking grapes and tending vines.He's the silent-type. My Driver couldn't finish his quesadilla. We are such wimps.
Needing postcards, we went to the gift shop at the Visitor Center at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.The subterranean Visitor Center in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Cholla The town of Borrego Springs is land-locked inside the state park California Fan Palm - Washingtonia filifera
Kathy & Woody arrived this afternoon to Borrego Springs. Dave and I cooked dinner for our friends, while we watched the Oregon Ducks lose (just barely) to the #2 Arizona Wildcats (basketball) in Tucson. I made one of DT's favorite pasta dishes - spaghetti with pecorino cheese and black pepper... and except for the cheese coagulating into big blobby balls, the meal was quite delicious.
No idea what happened. I make this dish at least once a month. Who knows? Thank goodness it was old friends for dinner tonight instead of the President of Zimbabwe. Our friends forgave me.
Tomorrow we move campsites, visit the Farmers Market and tee off. All of this will happen before 11a. Remember me in your prayers.
SLOGGER REPORT: Three miles - alternating walking/running between songs on my iPod.
Until my next update, I remain, your stormy correspondent.
