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.

Last day on the road for now!

We left the Red Barn RV Park and sort of got confused …. weren’t sure of where we were headed right out of the park, but Google Navigation helped us out, and soon we were on 29 north and went to the shortcut - 69 and up to 90 again heading east.

We sure hated to leave the beauty of the South Dakota country, but the wind was blowing, the skies were gorgeous and the traffic was light. Our destination was Lowery RV park in Minneapolis - a place we had called “home” the last time we visited in Minneapolis. Once we reached Albert Lea on 90, we turned north on I-35 and headed toward Minneapolis. We made one stop - in Northfield for diesel. We think our good friend Adriana and her son Nico live here, but this was no time to visit, and anyway they both were probably in school - Nico as a student and Adriana as a professor… So we pulled out of the truck stop and headed for the next, the final, and most nerve-shattering part of today’s drive ….. going through the city traffic to our destination. Google navigation is excellent and so long as she didn’t look at all the cars and traffic, Kathleen was sort of okay. Keeping her eye on the phone (that has the navigation app) she was able to guide Paul through the hub bub of traffic and continuing strong winds to this destination - What a relief!

The fellow in the office assigned us to a spot, took us there and made sure we were safely “unhooked” from the Honda and safely parked in the spot that will be “home” for the next two weeks.

We set up the rig then took a short drive in a very dirty Honda to a nearby grocery store for food for dinner. This was a pleasant surprise, from the outside it looks like a “cheap grocery store” but inside it was a poor man’s version of Whole Foods! Lots of organic offerings and knowledgeable staff.

For dinner we had a delicious pizza and salad - it was a “frozen pizza” that was quite delicious and we were happy to enjoy a satisfying meal to end our day.

Tomorrow we hope to see our grandsons …. not sure of who will be home and anxious to experience new surprises!
