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 325 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.
Yesterday I drove the motorhome 75 miles from Acton to Ventura, California. It was a pleasant drive under cloudy skies…

Upon my arrival, I parked at VFW Post #1679 where the provided me with a power hookup and free WiFi. Their parking lot is not all that large, but they squeezed me in. A very friendly place!
Here’s the usual dinette window photo. Okay..the view isn’t great, but the vets and volunteers are very friendly…
After I got set-up, I drove the Bronco about eight miles to the Channel Islands Maritime Museum in Oxnard. I’ve been in many maritime museums…and this is one of the best. Lots of great paintings and ship models. Like many museums there were a lot of darker areas where the exhibit is lit by mini-spotlights making for difficult photography.
Here are a few photos that I took…
