Paso Robles and Family

After a wonderful but short stay at Orange Grove RV Park in Bakersfield, we made the short drive to Wine Country RV Resort in Paso Robles, California. If you read the reviews on, you will find a mixed bag. Some people said the sites are very close together or that it's very noisy with highway traffic. Others said it is a wonderful place to stay. We haven't been here long enough to judge how much we like it, but for the amount we paid for two weeks, I sure hope we do! With the extra charge for 2 dogs, our bill came to just over $600. Yikes! We'll consider it our Christmas present to each other and call it good. We waited a little too long to get reservations in this area, so we didn't have a lot of choices for reasonable places to stay for the holiday.

We picked oranges before we left Orange Grove this morning, here's Jim holding up a prize orange.

Here's one of many rows of orange trees in Orange Grove RV Park

Jim's cousin, Bev, lives in Atascadero which is about 10 miles down the road from the RV park. His aunt and uncle from Arlington, Texas are here visiting their daughter for Christmas. Once we got set up, we set off to find Bev's house. Lots of hugs ensued as we visited with Ruth and Wayne, Jim's aunt and uncle, until Bev got home from work. We enjoyed visiting with the family and look forward to some great holiday adventures while we're here.

Here's Ruth with Wayne in the background.

We drove back to the rv park in a thick as pea-soup fog. I remember these foggy nights on the coast from the days long ago when I lived in San Francisco and my older brother lived a few miles south. I drove through some pretty scary foggy nights back then. We made it back home and settled in for a quiet evening

Jasmine likes to be where she can survey her kingdom, and allowed this picture of her perched on top of her crate in our bedroom.

Tomorrow will be finishing our Christmas decorating, cleaning and getting Christmas cards in the mail.
