Borrego Springs, California: It was a bit of March April Madness around here today. We spent the afternoon watching NCAA hoops. On our awning-shaded patio, on our exterior television. Perfect day for me.
Again, we woke to glorious warm sun. We each ran four miles (not together, of course) and after that... well, I would have preferred to just go back to bed. But instead, I grabbed my camera and snapped photos of this lovely RV resort. Maybe I can convince you to come to lovely Borrego Springs? On second-thought, it is already so difficult to get a reservation at The Springs at Borrego RV Resort, maybe I should just keep quiet?
We like to stay here because they have a golf course! Not one of those wimpy "executive" courses either. The Springs at Borrego have a regulation 9-hole course. This photo was taken from the championship tee on the first hole. We are planning to play tomorrow - if it isn't too windy - so I will take more photos then. This photo shows the ninth hole. A small lake/large pond is situated here and the park provides a sandy beach with fire pits, BBQ grills, beach chairs and covered ramadas around the lake. No swimming, but catch-and-release fishing is allowed. Yesterday, DT helped a little girl take a blue gill off her hook! If you are exhausted after a long day of doing nothing - grab a glass of wine and relax by the lake. The park hosts cook-outs, wine tastings, music, star-gazing and other fun events nearly every day. Or grab a chair and watch the golfers putt-out on the ninth/eighteenth hole.
Since I have so much white fish in the freezer from Puerto Penasco, I decided to make The Barefoot Contessa's Mustard Roasted Fish. Except I didn't have creme fraiche and I didn't have shallots. (I was also 99.9% sure I could not find creme fraiche - a French-style sour cream - at the local Borrego Springs grocer.) I did have fat-free plain Greek-style yoghurt and green onions though, so I invented my own low-fat version of the Contessa's recipe. Actually, it was really good. I think from now on when I make Mustard Roasted Fish, I will use fat-free Greek yoghurt. Look at the gorgeous flounder fillets we brought from Puerto Penasco!
Looks as if it will be a good game on Monday - Duke v Butler. My bracket has long been shot... as, no doubt, has yours. Isn't college basketball just so much fun!
Until my next update, I remain, your unleavened correspondent.
RV Park: The Springs at Borrego RV Resort. Full-service, luxury resort with a regulation 9-hole golf course. Naturally-fed hot spring hot tubs, pool, exercise room, party room, activities, fabulous pet-run, lake-side fire pits with community gatherings. Just a great place to spend a few days... or weeks... in the sleepy village of Borrego Springs. We highly recommend this park.
