|We are at the river house and taking it easy. It is a real treat to get time to do regular stuff that most people do when they are home. This house is fantastic. I am sure it can sleep 15 or 16 people. There are even beds in the closets! We went to Blythe CA for groceries and stuff, I washed the truck and camper while Shirley did some mending (with her sewing machine). A bike ride was on Shirley's agenda as well. Grilled out gazing at the mountains behind the desert. More free camping courtesy of nephews Jim and Tom and their gorgeous wives (neices) Julianna and Mary. All told, we spent 9 nights at Jim and Julie's house in Orange County and I expect 3 nights here. That's a lot of free camping on the West Coast Strachans. Thanks folks! Enjoy the pics.
