Kathleen and Paul are owners and live on site. So you'll get quick response to your needs and access to your washer/dryer in the basement.

Your apartment is only 100 feet from Grand Avenue and only 100 more to beautiful Lake Merritt where the winter birds are arriving. And runners abound.

Your Saturday Farmer's Market is closeby under/around I-580. Trader Joe's is just a few more feet. Whole Foods Market is walkable from your apartment. Sprouts Farmers Market is on Broadway and Safeway is closeby on Grand Ave.

Then there's the classic Grand Lake Theater. You'll find many good restaurants on Grand and Lakeshore. Walking Grand Ave and Lakeshore at night always reminds me of the Left Bank of Paris.

This area truly is a gem and Kathleen and I are glad and happy to live here. You will be too.

2/29/04 - Los Mochis - Guasave

I am very happy to introduce a couple with whom we have had a lot of fun. I know their children are going to be thrilled to read something their mom wrote. The guest editor for today is Norma Emerick. Norma and Bill met and fell in love in Kansas City, MO. They married in 1963 and have three children, all of whom are living in the Kansas City area. In addition, they have a wonderful daughter-in-law and one granddaughter, Abby, age four!

Karen, their youngest daughter is dog-sitting Norma and Bill’s dog, “Tilly,” for which they send a special Thank You, Karen!

In 1992 Bill and Norma retired and started living their dreams. When they’re not on caravans to wonderful places, they live at The Lake of the Ozarks.

They like gardening, fishing, boating, RVing and ATVing in the Ozarks, Colorado and Utah.

They’re not sure what they will do to top this trip, but they will go home, save their pesos and do another caravan when they can!

Here is Norma’s journal for Sunday, February 29th (with special thanks to Connie Sykes for the photographs):

We woke up early this morning to fog and were thankful for the beautiful clear days we had in the mountains.

The final 50 miles of our railroad adventure started at 7:10 AM. We rolled through more flatlands with tall cactus and blooming shrubs. As we got closer to Los Mochis, we saw large irrigated fields of corn, sugar cane, and vegetables.

We passed through settlements of people who work in the fields and processing plants. Some of the dwellings were shabbier than others, but almost all the yards had roses, hollyhocks and other flowers in bloom.

The children who came out to wave at our train seemed neat and clean.

We arrived at Los Mochis at 11:15 and started the unloading procedure, which took about two hours.

We were very impressed with the competency and courtesy of the railroad men who stayed on the train throughout the trip.

It’s summer time in Los Mochis - sunny, eighty degrees with a nice cool breeze. We are finished with jeans and sweats, and are now in our shorts!

We got out of town and away from some pretty crazy Mexican drivers and on highway 15, a decent four-lane. Then through Guasave we drove, and on to a narrow state road (with many “topes”!)

Here's a picture of the divided dirt road that led to our destination:

We arrived at Hotel Moro RV Park, Plays Las Glorias (“Their Glorious Beach” – or something like that!) at 4:30 in the afternoon. And it is a glorious beach!

At 6:00 PM we helped our new friends, Dan and Carolee Day celebrate their 7th/28th wedding anniversary, with good food and drink, and a view of the beach and the Sea of Cortez. (They were married Feb. 29, 1976 so they’ve only been able to celebrate on February 29th seven times so far!)

Words and pictures will not come close to the experience of the railroad, the magnificent Sierra Madre, or the canyons.

Although it is behind us, we will never forget it. It truly is the ultimate RV trip, and it’s not over yet!

4/25 - INTEGRITY MEANS AVOIDING any communication that is deceptive, full of guile, or beneath the dignity of people. "A lie is any communication with intent to deceive." Whether we communicate with words or behavior, if we have integrity, our intent cannot be to deceive. - from 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
