So far, so GREAT!! We are having so much fun doing absolutely NOTHING! Well…. at least Mrs S (Becky) is doing something. Cooking and dishwashing, but my job is the ‘heavy lifting’, so to speak. In fact, our Moroccan friend Medhi is coming here for dinner tonight so she is making a big pot of chili and baking corn bread! YUM!!!
It was a bit warmer today but we might be getting a little snow tonight. A little is fine, as long as we don’t get dumped on. An inch or so would be perfect! Tomorrow I will be driving down to the lake (Lake Gregory) to take a few photos. Crestline is a very quaint little town with a population of about 1500. I had to run some errands ‘downtown’ today and everywhere I went, the people were VERY friendly. Compared to Los Angeles it was refreshing, to say the least.
Our cabin is situated alongside a steep, winding mountain road about 5 miles from Crestline in the small community of San Moritz, and to say it’s secluded is an understatement.
In fact, last night we had a power outage here and upon going outside, it was pitch black! I literally could not see my hand in front of my face! And the only sounds were howlings of the wolves and the wild mountain dogs. Eerie!! From what I’ve heard, the recent wildfires here have driven much of the wildlife much closer to the uneffected areas, although I have yet to see a wolf, black bear or mountain lion… YET!! Nonetheless, I don’t leave my dogs outdoors alone for any length of time.
I will try to do another post before we leave on Sunday but who knows, we may decide to stay for a few more days. We LOVE it here!
I hope you all have a Great weekend and I promise to post a new photo album as soon as we get home. Bye for now…..
Our friend Mehdi finally found his way here and we served him Becky’s chili and cornbread. We sat around and relived old times, but then they both made a BIG mistake!! I was challenged to a game of Scrabble!!!! I kicked both of their butts and sent them to bed with their tails between their legs! How DARE they challenge me! Becky just came in looking for her book and I suggested that she take the Scrabble dictionary to bed and study up!! LOL! (I KNOW I will pay for this later ‘but it was sooo much fun!! ) Despite what they say, I don’t think that FU is a word!
I took some great pics today that I will be sure to post!
