Wednesday I had the opportunity to fly with a good friend, to Sacramento for the day. Continue reading
I am out the door most mornings by six. That is when Annika, our little white dog, and I go for our walk. A perfect time for us. Continue reading
We live less than a mile from Lake Mission Viejo. I sometimes forget just how beautiful it is, until we have visitors and spend time at the lake. Continue reading
A colorful walk in Chula Vista fulfilled one of my main goals for Plum Bird Corner, which is to fill it with colorful photos. We’ve just arrived home from an enjoyable stay at the Chula Vista RV Resort. On one of my walks in search of colorful subjects I spotted the above Chevy truck from Texas. It certainly is colorful. I spoke to the owners who were from Dallas, and they were flattered when I asked permission to photograph their pride and joy.
Later on the same walk I spotted these gorgeous roses. They became subject number two. They were so beautiful, especially next to the white picket fence.
Subject number three, was San Diego Bay. It’s not bright in color, but the clear water sparkled from the sun and sand. The RV park is next to the bay and I love being able to walk so close to the water. We really had a good trip, but it is always nice to be home.
Diamond Valley Lake is one of the places we visited while spending the holiday weekend in Hemet, California, at Golden Village Palms RV Resort. Our last visit to the lake was in 2013 and this time, we could definitely see the affects of the drought. Below is the boat ramp which was in active use when we were last there. The launch ramp is unusable now because it no longer reaches the waterline.
After our visit to the lake, we stopped to look at the nearby Western Science Center.
When I hopped out of the truck to take a few photos, I spotted the sign below.
I tend to forget that we share the landscape with these California natives. So far, I’ve never met up with one, but you can bet that after seeing the sign I watched where I was stepping.
On our way back to the RV park we spotted this old adobe ruin in Tucalota Springs.
We had a wonderful weekend of relaxing and seeing a few of the sights around Hemet. The days were pleasantly warm, and the nights quite cool, which made for great sleeping. It all made for a great RVing adventure in Hemet, California.
