From Jennings Lake we went to the Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve
in Santee, Ca another water company campground. 2/1 We had
spent several weeks here on our first trip out West in 2002. Susan
even came out in 2002 and spent Thanksgiving with us. As we had in
our previous visit we hiked in the nearby Mission Gorge Recreation
Area and was able to meet Debby's cousin Rob Shapiro with his wife
and kids at an area Deli.
We followed this two week stay with 10 days in Romona Oaks 2/15
another former membership park that gave us a deep discount. We
enjoy hiking in the Romona area and meeting the local cows
Not to mention the advice they give to Horse riders but only in
and the Julien Pie Company nearby in Julien, Ca
is a great place to visit as is Jonathan's a 4 star restaurant.
We also went to the San Diego Zoo Animal Safari.
Originally our plans were to stay for a week but we extended it
because friends were coming to the area to have some repairs done on
their RV before they headed to a Family Motor Coach rally prior to
the return to the East Coast. We met them for lunch near where they
were having their repairs and we went to the nearby Costco for
groceries. After our stay in Romaona Oaks we went to 29 Palms
California to spend some time in Joshua Tree National Park. the
weather was still raw, windy and cold so we went to a private park
with hook ups instead of dry camping in the park which we visited
daily during our stay five day stay . Joshua Tree -29 Palms 2/26
