We came in yesterday after only getting lost once and having to go on a road which would shake anybodys teeth loose.  We got a great site and did not have to unhitch and have the rig, trailer and car on our huge site with room to spare.  It is cool at night requiring the use of the heat pump but the days are very warm and sunny.  We don't have to worry about the electric bill because the site is $649 a month including full hookup, cable and electric, and no taxes.  This is the most inexpensive place we have ever been and it is great.  The  folks here are very friendly and in a month there will be 2,000 of them here.  There are so many activities you won't believe it including, thermal hot springs, gorgeous pools, theater club, crafts, so many clubs, massage on grounds as well as cafĂ© and beauty salon, I am in heaven.  Go on and check it out, they even have square dancing lessons and clown school.  There are probably 88 different activities and I and Joel will try to do as much as we can.  It is in the middle of nowhere, between the chocolate mountains and the salton sea.  About an hour and a quarter from Palm Springs, nurse practitioner is here for emergencies.  This place has been here for more than 35 years.  Joel especially liked the steam rooms, try and find that in an rv park.  I will be taking pictures this week and then will post them.  I am so glad to be out of the bone chilling weather of San Diego.  The desert is for me, no humidity but some dust of course.  We will keep you all posted.

We have been at Paradise by the Sea rv resort since early September, 13.  We will be here till Oct. 29, at which time we will be going to the Desert Springs, Ca area where the temps are warmer.  The weather here at night has been in the 50's and in the daytime it is in the low 70's and windy, so a little too chilly for us former Floridians.  In the desert area the nights will be cold but the days will be at least 10 degrees warmer.  However, it is remote and about an hour from the nearest large town.  This resort we will be staying at is called "The Fountain of Youth" and has hot mineral springs will come from deep within the earth and are supposed to be very rejuvenating and is for arthritis and other ailments.  They have a full activity schedule for the winter, including bingo, theater group, yoga, so much, too many to name.  They also have a beauty and nail salon and masseuse and restaurant on the premises.  We will stay a month and see how we like it.  They don't take reservations because it is such a large park.  Of course, being in the desert, no grass, and dirt sites.  It is in between the Salton Sea and the desert area. 

Since we have been here, I went to a beauty school to have my hair cut and colored, nuff said, and we have been to quite a few car shows.  The beach is 1 block away.  The pacific ocean is much colder than the atlantic and it is enjoyable watching the surfers, very large waves.  We have eaten out at quite a few nice places and all stores are close by.  We will keep everyone informed when we move to the new place.  I hope to be kept very busy there.  Signing off for now.
