2015-04-08 Southern to Central California

We spent a great week at the Escapees Jojoba Hills Co-op RV Park. Reservations have to be made by a member of the Co-op. We are lucky to have friends Carlin and Paula Serra who made ours. Last Wednesday we drove to Cabrillo National National Monument. Cabrillo was the first European to enter San Diego Harbor. IMG_5924. Our main purpose was to see the Point Loma Lighthouse. IMG_5928. On Thursday, we drove to Yorba Lind to see Former President Richard Milhous Nixon’s Presidential Library, Museum and Birthplace. This the entrance. 20150402_104725. The museum has films about the Nixon presidency, and houses the gifts and memorabilia received be the Nixon’s while in office that are valued in excess of $50. These gifts belong to the American Public. As a side note, current Presidents are allowed to keep gifts valued at less than $350. Outside, on the museum grounds are a rose garden with roses that are named in honor of various First Ladies, and the burial grounds of the Nixon’s. 20150402_13134620150402_13180920150402_13182320150402_131840. Further along on the outside, are President Nixon’s boyhood home, and the helicopter (Marine One) that serve Nixon, Ford, Johnson and Reagon. Yes it was in service for four presidents. 20150402_13205520150402_133502.


After leaving Jojoba Hills, we moved the house to the Elks Lodge 901 in Petaluma, CA. While driving yesterday in the rain we even saw hail on the ground in Lodi, CA.


Today, we drove the Jeep to Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, CA to get pictures of some of the first of Marilyn’s relatives to some to the US from France and Germany. Mountain View Cemetery. While there, we had to take pictures of the Ghiradelli Family Crypt, and its view from Millionaires’ Row. Mountain View Cemetery
