Nicolaus To Anderson, California

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 127 miles from Nicolaus to Anderson, California.

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

Most of yesterday’s travel was on U.S. Highway 99 which passes through miles of fruit orchards…much better than the alternate of Interstate Highway 5…

Approaching Anderson I spotted Mount Shasta 65 miles away. I grabbed my camera and manged to get this neat shot even though I was driving…

Arriving at Anderson, California I parked at the rear of very friendly VFW Post#9650 for the night. I’ve been stopping here for several years. They even provided me with a 30 amp electrical hookup so I could run my air conditioner to deal with the 85 degree temperature. Many thanks for another enjoyable stay…

And here’s the usual dinette window photo…

Outside it was 85 in the shade and 94.2 in the sun. It was a comfortable 78 degrees inside the motorhome as I watch the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees 5-4.

 

I’ll depart later this morning.

 

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

 

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

 Forecast for today is sunny and 90 degrees.

Harlingen, Texas Day 11 (GA352)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. I’m planning on departing later this morning.

 

 

 

 

 

This entry was posted December 30, 2012

 

 

 

 

Mary is at home in California enjoying the holidays with her family. She has made her airline reservations to join me here at Harlingen, Texas on January 3, 2013.

 

 

The motorhome is parked at Tropic Winds RV Resort and is scheduled to be here until January 10th. While I await Mary’s arrival on the 3rd, I’ll be seeing some local attractions, performing repairs and preventative maintenance on both the motorhome and Bronco, plus thoroughly cleaning both vehicles.

 

 

Yesterday I drove the Bronco the about one mile to the Iwo Jima Monument here in Harlingen, Texas. You can read about this monument by clicking this link…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

Located on the grounds of the Marine Military Academy, at over 100 feet high, this monument is really impressive. Of the six men raising the flag…only three survived the Battle of Iwo Jima…

The most famous of the surviving three men was Ira Hayes…a Pima Indian from Arizona immortalized in a song sung by Johnny Cash which you can view by clicking this YouTube video link…

You can read about Ira Hayes by clicking this Wikipedia informational link…

Directly across the street, I also visited the small museum which you can read about by clicking this link…

While there, I viewed a 32 minute video about this battle which some have called one of the most savage and costly in all of World War II. The 36-day (Iwo Jima) assault resulted in more than 26,000 American casualties, including 6,800 dead. What a shame that most young people today haven’t a clue of the price paid for their freedom today

A few days ago I drove the Bronco the about 12 miles to San Benito, Texas, to visit the Museums of San Benito…three museums in one building. Yesterday I reviewed the Texas Conjunto Music Hall of Fame & Museum. Today’s topic is the San Benito Museum.

 

 

Here’s what their brochure has to say about the museum…

 

 

Step back in time and see how San Benito came to be.

From the natural formation of the resaca (an old course of the Rio Grande River) where Indians and Spanish land grant ranches flourished to the arrival of the railroad and diverse ethnic pioneers hungry for cheap and fertile land, a small community grew and prospered.

San Benito grew into a social and commercial center in the tropical Magic Valley of Texas. Pioneers built schools and churches, formed clubs and held dances and even put on a “Hog Waddle.”

Over 100 hundred years have passed since San Benito’ founding and naming by Col. Sam Robertson and his business colleagues. Walk through our small tale in United States history and as the words of a popular song echo, “Reminisce about the days of yore…”

 

 

The Museums of San Benito house three different museums. Here’s the link…

A few days ago I drove the Bronco the about 12 miles to San Benito, Texas, to visit the Museums of San Benito…three museums in one building. Yesterday I reviewed the Texas Conjunto Music Hall of Fame & Museum. In that museum was a display of the La Villita Dance Hall still in operation at 261 W. Robertson Street, a few blocks from the museum.

 

 

Here’s the museum’s description of La Villita…
A historical treasure that is found in downtown San Benito is El Patio La Villita. In the 1950s–60s and 70s, it was the premier dance hall in the entire Rio Grande Valley. People traveled from all over the Valley for weekend dances. Orguestas (orchestras) such as Beto Villa, the Father of “Musica Orguestal Tejana” played here during their lifetimes. Conjunto legends such as Narciso Martinez, Tony De La Rosa, Valerio Longoria, Freddy Fender and many other musicians also played here during their lifetime.

 

 

The music is called Conjunto and you can read about it in this link…(Be sure to click the video button and then the related video buttons to hear a nice selection of this music)
http://www.texasconjuntomusic.org/aboutus.html

 

 

Here’s La Villita’s current website link…

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!
