11/24, 11/25 & 11/26 - Left Corning RV Park and headed for Merced RV Park in Delhi. Woke up to rain 😞 - Was hoping to out run the weather, but did not happen. It rained for the majority of our drive. When we had finally arrived to our destination for the day it was really coming down. We got the RV set up and then made a decision to stay there until after the holiday. Wednesday the weather was better and we went to a local grocery store and got some Thanksgiving day fixins. Did you know you can buy a turkey with the the legs and wings already removed? So essentially you just get the breast meat. So that is what we bought. It weighed a little over 6lbs. Perfect for us. On Thanksgiving we had turkey, stuffing, beans, rolls, corn, cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes. & cherry pie for dessert We had way too much food for just the two of us. So turkey sandwiches will be the order for awhile. We enjoyed our meal and gave thanks that our family is healthy and happy. Enjoyed talking to Eric, Mercedes & Hayden on Thanksgiving Day. They called late morning while I was doing a couple loads of laundry in the park laundry room.

Before going to bed and after all the dishes were done, we did a thorough cleaning of the trailer inside. It was in desperate need of a good vacuuming.

11/27 - Weather was beautiful as we drove out of the Merced RV Park and headed further south. Bakersfield was our destination today. The sun was out but temps were only in the upper 50's. 58 I think was the high achieved. So not balmy but at least not freezing. As we drove out of the central valley and more into SoCal more and more palm trees started to appear. What was also noticeable along the highway are all the orchards. From Almonds, Avocado, Olive, & all kinds of citrus. California is a huge Ag. State. The drought they have been going thru is very evident. Most of the river crossings, the rivers were dried up. The most surprising to us was to see was no water in the Kern River Bed. Pretty shocked to see that. The park we chose to stay in is in the middle of an Orange Orchard. And the trees are loaded right now. They encourage the guests to Pick a couple. But not go crazy. So we have a couple sitting on the counter right now. We had thought we'd just stay a couple nights here, But it is so nice we have now decided to stay here until Tuesday. We will head up over the Tehachapi's to Barstow on Tuesday.

Will sign off for now and share more in a few days.
