Merry Christmas to each of you reading along and staying in touch with us! We value this connection!
Since our arrival in early December, this has been a peaceful time of relaxing and taking in the sites of the Borrego Springs area, as well as enjoying gatherings with fellow RVers.
We went with Karen & Bob to the outdoor market at College of the Desert one day… goodness! Had never experienced a “flea market” with so much bling and high-end items… could even purchase a sports car there!!! Met more of their Canadian friends... fun day, ay!!!
Took a drive one day to Julian to look around… hadn’t been there for some 30 years. Tom toured the Eagle Gold Mine and, of course, we ate apple pie!
The evening of the Winter Solstice, we had a gathering and enjoyed time with friends. Beautiful evening, amazing sunset and good visits around the fire.

(A special thanks to photographer friend Carol Dwyer for “inserting me” into the photo to include our entire group :)
Yesterday, John and Tom went on an outing to Obsidian Butte near Sonny Bono National Wildlife Refuge at the south end of the Salton Sea… going rockhounding in a Miata was a fun first!
I drove to Fallbrook for the day to visit my parents and tour Silvergate Retirement Residence where they will be moving in a week or so. Very nice… beautiful place, lovely one-bedroom apartment. Like living in a nice hotel with a dining room and room service! Such a deal! Had a nice lunch there with them and my brother, Don.
Congratulations and best wishes, Mom & Dad!
So, tomorrow is Christmas Eve and this year will soon come to a close. We send best wishes to each of you for a Merry Christmas and blessings in the new year!
Hugs, Dianne & Tom
Turn over a new leaf, begin a new… may this be a special time of reflection and anticipation. May the broken parts heal, may the sadness vanish, may your good fortunes multiply, and may you each find an abundance of blessings in the new year!
