Fun, Fun Fun!!

Thursday, February 21 - Borrego Springs (Aguanga, CA)


Yesterday I did laundry and enjoyed the morning with my computer.

At 12:30 we went over to Bob and Janet’s for lunch. I made some corn bread to share and Janet made some delicious chicken chili as the main dish.

After we ate we visited for awhile and then we all engaged in a game of Phase 10. Even though Jesse was in the lead most of the game in the end…Yea, I won!!

After the game was over Bob and Janet brought up the cruise that is planned in January 2014. They said that they were to talk Jesse and I into going with them.

Jesse and I would love to go…but we have two obstacles Bayer and Buddy. We will have no one to keep them while away for a week. It is a lot to ask of someone and I will not board them for that long.

After we came home we watched TV until bed time.

Today we all decided to go to Borrego Springs


History is unfolding in a town already filled with its own unique historical milestones, Borrego Springs with the first placement of the Gomphotherium free standing art structures. These creatures lived in the area about 3 million years ago.

Dennis Avery, land owner of Galleta Meadows Estates in Borrego Springs envisioned the idea of adding 'free standing art' to his property with original steel welded sculptures created by 'Perris Jurassic Park' owner/artist/welder Ricardo Breceda based in Perris, California. There are 129 metal sculptures located in Borrego Springs. We took many, many pictures.








We had a real good time driving and walking around in the desert taking pictures.

Then we went to lunch at a Mexican Restaurant Bob looked up called Pablitos-Mexican-Bar-and-Grill. We all had chicken fajitas and they were very good.

Then we took a drive to Salton Sea. The Sea was created by a flood in 1905, in which water from the Colorado River flowed into the area.

It had a terrible rotten fish smell from all the dead fish.


The birds like the area!

The area looked like it was a nice place at one time. It was built between 1950 and 1958 to be a resort town but then in the 70’s most of the area along the shore was abandoned due to rising sea elevations including the city's marina.

On the way home we came upon a bunch of big horn sheep along the highway


We returned home to the boys who were very glad to see us. It was a very nice day and spending time with Bob and Janet has been a good time.

We will be leaving in the morning to go back to Las Vegas. Bob and Janet will stay here for another week then they are arriving in Vegas on March 3rd.

We are looking forward to showing them around town.

We spent quite awhile in Borrego Springs and we saw alot of the sculptures while we were out for rides... but we missed alot of those. We must need to go again.
