Unfortunately it’s too early for the oranges to be ripe. Orange Grove RV Park is literally in an orange grove. They cleared all but 3 trees per site to build the park and they encourage you to pick oranges when they are in season. Of all the times we have been through, I think they have only been ripe once. We did find a time when they were still green on the outside but orange and sweet on the inside. Susan tried one today and said they are sweet but kind of dry still. Anyway the weather here is nice. It is about 90, a little humid but not bad with a light breeze, a lot better than the 105+ in Havasu. The drive was good and being the last day of the holiday weekend I thought the traffic was going to be terrible but it was good. Maybe less people are traveling these days.
On our trip here we traveled over the Tehachapi Mountains. Last time we came through here it was snowy at the top and grassy on the foothills. This time it was dry and brown. Not a pretty site. We traveled about 35 miles as the crow flies from some of the terrible fires in Southern California but didn’t see or smell any smoke.
Well I am able to update the web site today because although our Verizon aircard is struggling here (VERRY SLOOOO) the WiFi here at the park is one of the fastest I have come across. We will see what happens when we get to Morro Bay.
