Moving to the Hills

After our Thanksgiving at Borrego Springs, I moved to Jojoba Hills RV Resort, an Escapees Park in Aguanga, CA. The WINs were having a gathering here in the dry camping area.

Less than a mile away is where Ricardo Breceda has his retail lot where you can buy one of his sculptures. He is the artist that did the sculptures in Borrego Springs, and I got to meet him here! Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of him, I was too distracted by his sculptures.

One day, I took a trip down to Oceanside.

I stopped to see one of the old California missions, the Mission San Luis Rey.

The inside is just beautiful.

I always like to look at the Stations of the Cross in Catholic churches. These were hand painted, and almost black. But when I took a picture of them, you could see the picture much better.

One afternoon, we went to the Pala Casino to see a Supremes tribute concert.

On another day, we took a train from Oceanside to Old Town San Diego. The ride is beautiful - right along the ocean, and only $6.50 round trip for seniors!

Even though I had just been to Old Town with my daughter, this time I got to explore some of the old buildings, this one a printer's workshop.

The Rust General Store got my attention, but it wasn't what I thought it was...

And now, Old Town was decorated for Christmas!


And then on another day, 4 of us did a tour of the wine country around Temecula. There are LOTS of wineries here!

Unfortunately, the grape vines were a lot past prime...

But that doesn't prevent doing a wine tasting!

And then on another day, our own Paul Martin performed at Happy Hour at the RV Park. He was very much appreciated!

Good night!
