Nov 25, 2011 - San Diego area

Today is a travel day - we are backtracking a bit to Anaheim to spend a few weeks with our brother (Therese's actually, but Dave claims him too), Bernie, before heading to Arizona for January and February. It is hard to believe that we have been in San Diego(area)for nearly a month. We have begun to settle into the more relaxed and measured pace of our new life, with many days spent at home - days spent sitting in the sun and reading a new book, attending to the little details of life (grocery shopping, routine maintenance on the truck and...

Mar 27, 2010 - Lake Jennings

Crystal and Andrew came to visit us in the afternoon at our campground. We ate a very good Mexican restaurant. We drove to Lake Jennings State park which was about 2 miles from our campground and checked out the campground on a hill and below we could see the lake. We took a paddle boat out on the water. The "kids" paddled while we rode and watched for wildlife. The only wildlife was coots,seagulls, and cormorants. I forgot my camera so no pictures.

Maas' 2010

Mar 26, 2010 - Lakeside, CA

We have seen all speed limits. Texas near El Paso was 80 mph and this morning when Herb drove into California the sign read trucks and vehicles towing speed limit 55 mph. We had to slow down for a inspection station for fruit and only asked what we had in the rig and then on we went. We also had to slow down for imigration inspection but didn't have to stop. The eastern side of California west of Yuma is completely sand dunes. The Winnebago towing the honda didn't even move the heat gauge a mark as we climbed up to 4,250 feet. Then at the...

Oct 21, 2009 - More San Diego

10-21-09 More of San Diego A few things remained in our ‘bucket list’ for San Diego, so rising bright and early (7:00 AM) we headed to Balboa Park. The park was created in 1868 taking in 1,400 acres over looking the ‘new town’ (present day downtown). For 20 years the land laid vacant scrub filled until 32 acres was set aside for Kate Sessions’s commercial nursery. She imported and planted over 100 trees a year in the park and 300 trees around the city. Her hard work can be seen as we walked around the park and drive through the city. In...

Oct 20, 2009 - Going Wild in San Diego!

Going Wild in San Diego It was hard, but we ended up getting early to make it out of the park by 8:15 AM. Our goal was to be at the San Diego Zoo gate before it opened at 9:00 AM. We did it with 5 minutes to spare! The parking lot seemed busy, but once inside it was like we had parts of the park to ourselves. Greg Hotlzworth suggested going to the Panda bear exhibit first, and that’s what we did….kind of. The zoo is so large one can get lost with the map provided by the park. As we passed by the tigers, hippos, monkeys, and other animals,...

Oct 19, 2009 - On a Mission!

10-19-09 On a Mission! This morning we on are a ‘mission’! Several items showed up on our ‘to do’ list, but at the top was ‘Get a Flu shot’. After reading about all our family and friends experiencing ‘flu like symptoms’, we decided to have it done as soon as possible! Also when you consider how many germs we come into contact with as we go through tourist attractions, it’s enough to turn you into Howard Hughes! On Sunday while attending church at Shadow Mountain Community Church (about 3,000 at the first service), Pastor David Jeremiah...

Oct 17, 2009 - Touring San Diego

10-17-09 San Diego Tour This morning we “flew” down the freeway (Speed limit 65 MPH, you’ll be run over for less than 70 MPH, fast lane 80+ MPH) to take a tour of San Diego on the Old Town Trolley. We wanted a general overview of the area in order to plan the next several days, so we hopped on the trolley and took off! The bus/trolley departs from Old Town, the site where the city originally was founded in 1769 when Gaspar de Portola led soldiers, tradesmen, and Jesuit-trained Indians to this spot. Father Junipero Serra came later and a...

Oct 16, 2009 - Sea World San Diego

10-16-09 Sea World, San Diego Last night we went online (while updating the site) and purchased tickets and parking for Sea World. We visited Sea World. Florida in 2007, but it has been almost 20 years since visiting San Diego. The park opened at 10:00 AM and closed at 6:00 PM. We wondered if we could see everything in 8 hours so we made sure we arrived before the gates opened. Sea World uses a unique system to allow entry into the park. They take your right index fingerprint to track your coming and going. They claim the prints are not...

Oct 15, 2009 - Lakeside, California

10-15-09 Lakeside, California This morning Jim had one task on his mind before we left for San Diego; to go back to Disneyland and get his birthday gift merchandise card! After eating breakfast and reading our devotional, Jim scampered out of the park and headed the 0.6 miles to the Magic Kingdom. But he had an important stop to make first. Crossing the street Jim stopped at Starbucks to get his free birthday drink. Supposedly if you register your card, on your birthday you receive a free drink. Not only did he not get a free drink. But...
