The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Morgan Hill, California.
My eye surgeon at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California wants me back for a six-month post-operation examination of my cataract surgery. My appointment is scheduled for April 21st. Palo Alto is only about 40 miles from my current location. I’ll sit here until the 21st when I’ll drive the Bronco to Palo Alto. I expect to arrive at Mary’s home in Murphys, California on either April 22 or 23.
I arrived here the day before yesterday for a 21 day stay. It has 298 campsites and is set on 66 acres about 30 minutes South of San Jose, California. Like most Thousand Trails facilities, it’s pretty and quiet. Here are some photos I took from my last visit here in 2011……

Speaking of my last visit here in 2011…here’s an interesting comparison…
California is currently in its fourth drought year and just yesterday the Governor ordered a mandatory 25% reduction in water use. Here’s the news article about the severity of the current drought…http://www.seattlepi.com/news/article/California-drought-Jerry-Brown-orders-historic-6172986.php
When I was last here in 2011 we experienced FLOODING from all of the rain. You can read my blog posting of that event by clicking this link…http://wp.me/pDCku-1jv
This campground holds a particular sentiment for me as this is where I was staying in October of 2008 when I met my-now life-partner Mary on-line. It’s the second time I’ve been here since that time. This location is about 160 miles from Mary’s home in Murphys, California. For our first meeting we met for a five-hour brunch at a half-way point in Tracy, California. And like they say…”The rest is history!”

Beginning Tomorrow…I found gold in Monterey, California! Recently I spent several days in Monterey…an area rich in beautiful scenery and history. A bonanza for a travel blogger! I ended up with 17 blog titles and 628 photos which I’ll present over the roughly next six weeks. This works well for me because I’ll be in an “idle period” during that time. Currently I’m sitting here in Morgan Hill (I’ve been here a number of times in the past) awaiting my VA hospital appointment. Then off to Mary’s home for about four weeks during which time I’ll do routine maintenance repairs and cleaning. On about May 21, Mary and I a planning to head-out for Yellowstone National Park (and other destinations) in Wyoming. Till then, enjoy Monterey!
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
