Mary continues to be occupied with personal business. I am now not expecting to see her again until I arrive at her home in Murphys, California about the third week in April. It’s just the way things are and we just have to deal with it.

I’m now in what I’m calling my “pacing mode”. Last October I had cataract surgery at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California. My surgeon wants me back in mid-April for a six-month post-operative eye examination. Palo Alto is only about 87 miles from my current location. So, in the meantime, I’ll “pace” my forward direction travels hoping stay in 65-75 degree temperatures all the while. My appointment is now set for April 21st.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 121 miles from Atascadero to Del Rey Oaks which is only about five miles from Monterey, California.

A good portion of the drive was on U.S. Highway 101…

The highest arch bridge in the U.S. state of California, the Cold Spring Canyon bridge crosses a tree-filled ravine north of Santa Barbara. Two large steel box beam ribs support a 2-lane roadway 400 feet high. Controversy rose over how to deal with a suicide rate of one person per year since the bridge opened in 1963 with as many as 5 people a year recently. In 2012 a barrier was installed to block any jumpers though the new fence also blocks what was once a beautiful view of the valley and surrounding mountains.

The Cold Spring Canyon Arch Bridge crosses over the Stagecoach Road. It can be seen beneath the bridge in the first two photos below…

Last Saturday I wandered around this 310 acre park for two hours and took a bunch of photos. Brilliant mid-morning sun and deep shadows makes for difficult photography conditions. I’ll share them with you over a six-day period. Today is #6…

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

Rancho Oso Photos #5

March 19, 2015

The motorhome is now parked at Thousand Trails Rancho Oso (Bear Ranch in Spanish) RV Resort. In reality the park has a Santa Barbara, California mail address, but is physically located about 25 miles north of Santa Barbara in the Los Padres National Forest.

Mary continues to be occupied with personal business. I am now not expecting to see her again until I arrive at her home in Murphys, California about the third week in April. It’s just the way things are and we just have to deal with it.

I’m now in what I’m calling my “pacing mode”. Last October I had cataract surgery at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California. My surgeon wants me back in mid-April for a six-month post-operative eye examination. Palo Alto is only about 275 miles from my current location. So, in the meantime, I’ll “pace” my forward direction travels hoping stay in 65-75 degree temperatures all the while.

Last Saturday I wandered around this 310 acre park for two hours and took a bunch of photos. Brilliant mid-morning sun and deep shadows makes for difficult photography conditions. I’ll share them with you over a six-day period. Today is #5…

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