The motorhome is parked at Mary’s rental property in Wimer, Oregon. Mary and I are busy buying lots of items associated with the construction of her rental property here. My military discount has saved her almost $2,000 in four days of shopping…more shopping today.
Change of plans…
2015 is proving to be an overwhelming year for Mary. Her to-do plate is overflowing. Among the many things requiring her time is the completion of construction of a rental property in Wimer (13 miles north of Rogue River), Oregon.
Mary arrived here five days ago here for a few days of hands-on involvement, then will return home to continue dealing with her over-flowing plate.
I’m here until tomorrow morning after which I’ll head for the Oregon Pacific Coast for about a six-week visit and then into the State of Washington for the summer. My primary goals are to stay in 65-75 degree weather and take maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership.
We are now hoping for Mary to rejoin me on the road sometime after July 4th. Our planned trip to Yellowstone National Park and Wyoming will hopefully now occur after the Labor Day holiday.
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 through about May 15th.
Today’s subject – Lovers Point Park adjacent to Monterey, California…
According to local legend, this park was originally called “Lovers of Jesus Point,” back in the era when Pacific Grove was a Methodist retreat camp. Since the late 1800s, the beach at Lovers Point in Pacific Grove has been a popular spot for boating and swimming, and over recent decades surfers have joined the mix. Lovers Point Park has above all become Pacific Grove’s best-loved spot for picnics, plein air painting, and scenic photography. Because of its unique east-facing location, it is also one of the only spots on the West Coast where you can watch the sun rise over the water.
Locals can always be found lounging on the grass at Pacific Grove’s well-groomed 4.4-acre Lovers Point Park. Many visitors climb the rocks at the point for which it is named in order to get a spectacular view of Monterey Bay.

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