Almost time to go.

Snow on the mountains on the way to Palm Desert.

We have been here for over 2 1/2 months now and on Friday March 31st we start the journey home. We will be flying from LAX to Dulles, where my sister will be meeting us. We will spend 2 days in Keedysville, MD,  probably trying to do some shopping for stuff for the motorhome and for the kids and grandkids. Then by April 2nd we have to be back in Ontario. Our travel insurance expires on the 2nd. From there we have to be in Canada for 6 months plus 1 day to keep our health insurance. The plan will be to get the Seneca parked up at Cedar Beach Park. We have reserved a seasonal site for around $300 a month. Electricity is extra. From here we hope to do a few trips around Ontario, probably from Sunday to Friday as we do not have any reservations. We are also going to try and get some hosting positions (free site) but as yet have not pursued that avenue, so the chances are slim. We do have a Coast to Coast membership so we will try and get some bookings at their resorts.

Our stay in California has been wonderful. Most of the time we have spent helping Virginia, my "American" mom. We helped her settle into her condo at The Chateau in San Marcos and also cleaning and painting and fixing the house in Oceanside.

We also did a few very nice day trips in Southern California, such as a day in Sea World, a trip to San Diego to go on the USS Midway and a visit to the Cabrillo National Monument on Point Loma.  We also took a 4 day trip up to Indian Wells and Desert Palms. All very enjoyable and successful.

Filling in the applications for a volunteer position as camp hosts in San Elijo, California

We have applied for a position as Camp Hosts in California State Parks for next winter. We hope that something will come up. This will all depend on how Virginia is doing and if we bring the Seneca with us. At the moment she is doing well but is getting very frail.
