Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort – Manteca, California

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort along the San Joaquin River at Manteca, California. I expect to leave here later this morning.

 

Located at Manteca, California, it’s the closest park to Mary’s home which is 65 miles “up-the-hill” at 2,100 feet elevation. The elevation here is 38 feet. The park has only 72 campsites and is almost completely surrounded by the San Joaquin River as seen in the below Google Earth image…

Back in 2011 the river flooded the park to a depth of about four feet. The park was closed for almost a year while repairs were made. You can read about the flood by clicking this link… http://www.mantecabulletin.com/archives/22267/

 

 

 

 

Here are a few photos along the river… (I took these photos in April, 2014)

Recently I’ve been running blogs about my 2004 Central America trip. While here I’m intending to continue those postings while also alternating with other past blogs.

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was  sunny and 73 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 70 degrees.

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

Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort – Manteca, California – Day 2

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort along the San Joaquin River at Manteca, California. I expect to leave here later this morning.

Yesterday I drove to Bronco 40 miles in a heavy downpour to the VA Medical Center at Livermore. California. This rain was the first drenching rain this area has had in a long while. The purpose of my trip was a final eye exam and prescription reading glasses. I had cataract surgery on my right eye on October 9th and left eye on November 6th. I was told everything is in excellent condition and both eyes are now at 20/20. My new reading glasses will be mailed to me in about four weeks. In the meantime I get by with my Costco reading glasses.

Today I thought I’d share some information about this RV Resort. You can read about it by clicking this link… http://www.thousandtrails.com/california/turtle-beach-rv-resort/

Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort – Manteca, California

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 65 miles from Murphys to Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort along the San Joaquin River at Manteca, California. Along the way I stopped for gas at Costco for $2.67.9 per gallon. Best gas price I’ve seen in a long while.

The cataract surgery of my right eye was conducted on October 9th and my left eye on November 6th. Both eyes are now at 20/20. The only remaining item left (other than eye drops until early December) is a visit to the optometrist to be fitted for reading glasses at the VA Hospital in Livermore, California. My appointment is at 11AM this morning.

Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny day at 65 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy with rain showers at 65 degrees.

Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort – Manteca, California – Day 3

Mary is traveling with her 14-year-old grandson on a trip to Turkey. I expect her to catch up with me sometime in mid-May somewhere in Oregon.

Manteca, California

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 217 miles from Bakersfield to Manteca, California. I parked overnight at Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort. I’ll depart later this morning and arrive at Mary’s home later today. Mary is at home tending to personal matters.

I’ve had a change of plans. Instead of drifting along the central California coast this Spring, I’m headed to Mary’s home. Last September during my eye exam at the Seattle, Washington VA Hospital I was told I have a large cataract in my right eye that should be attended to in the next year. It’s always been difficult getting to that VA Hospital, so I’ve made arrangements to change to a local VA Clinic in Sonora, California…about 25 miles from Mary’s home. My appointment to meet my new primary care doctor is on March 7th who will make the necessary arrangements to have my eye problem corrected.

Who says just because you are in a large city you can’t see a pretty sunrise? First photo below was taken in Bakersfield yesterday morning. The two other photos at my current location…
