Here are some pictures and video clips of the famous Huntington Beach Pier and the local surfers. A drizzly cool day did not deter them from partaking of their daily surfing.
Happy Thanksgiving!!!! Tuesday we rode from our campground 270 miles through the desert, up through the mountains (4,000 ft altitude), down into the San Diego area and then up the coastal road to Huntington Beach. Below are a few pictures and video clips of the trip and Red Fox hanging with her two grandsons, Nicholas and Cameron.
Yesterday we had a great day as we hiked around the Imperial Dam Lake. This is ordinarily about a 5 mile hike, but it turned into a 7 mile hike for us because we got off the beaten path a few times. We saw some beautiful scenery and just wished we had thought to bring water and a snack.
That evening we got settled in to watch what we hoped would be a great NFL game between the Patriots and Denver. However, at halftime, with the Pats down 24-0 and showing no signs of life, we decided to pack it in and go to bed. What a mistake! As you may know, they rallied in the second half and came back to win in overtime 34-31.
Today, to punish ourselves for not being faithful to the Pats, we went on a 16 mile bicycle ride to Ferguson Lake. You will also see those pictures below. On the way back we had two adventures-we saw a coyote and Hawk took a dixie on his bike. Red Fox after seeing that I would live, laughed her ass off. It was 49 when we got up and about 68 by the time we got back each day.
Hawk Bites the dust
Here you will see some video clips that show daily life at our fabulous campground. And, contrary to what some are saying, there are other people here (we saw some yesterday). Also, there is great entertainment here on Sundays. In the last few clips you will see the kick ass Sunday Hootenany band perforing on the ramada in the desert. Don’t miss these.
Here are some pictures from our winter digs. Today we rode to the Bard CA Post Office and picked up our mail. All kinds of date palm farms on the way. Stopped at a date farm stand and had a date shake! Fabulous! 400 calories in a 12 oz. shake. Delicious home made ice cream and dates. Light suppah tonight. Cloudy this morning, then partly sunny. High around 80. stiff breezes tonight.
Here we are 2 days ago, 4 wheeling for the first time in our lives, thanks to Mike and Lori. Red Fox was a little scared, so I put on my big boy pants and drove the high trails. Fox took over on the lower terrain. We had an absolute fabulous time. Afterwards we ate outside under the stars, with a western campfire. A double wicked pissa time! Thanks Mike and Lori. Truth or Consequences rocks!
