Home at Last, or at Least for Two Months

After spending one night in Truckee CA. we wanted to have lunch with a friend in Sacramento, CA. so I checked all my phone apps and found a small RV park and Marina in West Sac. Sherwood Marina and RV Park, on South River Road, West Sac.  A very cool place, as it is right on the Sacramento River. Most places along the river are below the levy but South River Road runs along the top of the levy so you can drive for miles looking at the river. We were there after Memorial Day Weekend so it was nice and quiet with only one other RVer there.  It is all grassy with lots of huge cottonwood trees for shade.

After we had lunch with moms friend Kim we turned the RV towards home and after stopping for dinner in Clearlake Oaks for some of the best Chinese food in Lake county we were home by 6pm.

And this is what greeted me in my backyard.

 My Mock orange trees (Philadelphus coronarius) in full bloom.

Can you smell these flowers?

So we are home for two months at which time we will head north.  So for several weeks we will be playing catch-up on the yard work around the house and getting the RV ready for her next great adventure.  Oh and by the way, last week we passed the 10,000 mile mark.  We have put on more than 10,000 miles on the RV since we got it in November 2013.  Our next goal is 50,000 miles.  

So see you around August 1st.
