This is what I saw when I went for my little walk last night -- a beautiful California sunset.
When I woke up this morning, I thought I had slept in, because the sun was up already -- but no, it was 7:30. It's just that we had come far enough south to make at least a half hour's difference in the sun's rising time.
The plan was to go to Corning, visit the Olive Pit (one of my favourite places), then proceed to Bakersfield, where we would make up our minds what route to take from there.
(Oh, and by the way, I had been reading about pepperoncini on Facebook, but I had never tasted them until today.)
Oh, pepperoncini, where have you been all my life?
On the other hand, the wi-fi connection is infinitely better -- hence the photos, which I'm able to upload in seconds instead of hours.
We're at something called Sparks Marina RV Park, which we found after driving right across Reno on the highway. We were beginning to think we were going to spend the night out in the desert. Fortunately, Sparks Marina turned out to be neat and clean, if not particularly interesting -- and quite affordable.
R assures me that it is all downhill from here, and that we will soon have our warm weather back. Tomorrow, we will head to Beatty, Nevada, where there is a very unassuming RV park with a hot spring on the property. We do enjoy staying there, swimming in the hot water. The following day, we plan to take a side trip into Death Valley, which we both love. Then we will go out the south end of the valley and proceed toward Texas. At least, that's the plan right now.
And the reason I'm telling you about the next couple of days is that I don't remember having wi-fi in Beatty, so there probably won't be a post tomorrow night -- which is a shame, because I'm kinda gettin' into this! Or -- maybe Beatty has grown since we were there last, and they'll have wi-fi. You never know.
Now, I've sat here for a while, wondering what music I could add that would fit today's post, and I can't come up with a thing -- so I'll just post something I like. No. Something I love.
