Our visit to Pleasanton was to allow us to see friends and family and some places of interest in the San Francisco Bay area. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to visit all of the places we had intended since Kevin was under the weather with a cold for the first 2 or 3 days. While in Pleasanton, we parked at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.
On our way north, we stopped off in Coalinga, located in central California. We had the opportunity to visit with Geri (partner of Valerie’s late sister Kathy) and her family. Geri’s mother, two sisters and brother live in and around Coalinga and they kindly invited us to join them for a visit and delightful meal. They prepared delicious enchiladas, Mexican rice, refried beans and potato salad.
Once again, we parked at Golden Shores RV Resort in Long Beach for two weeks. This gave us an opportunity to check in with friends, visit with Valerie’s family and attend a Super Bowl party.
We took advantage of the bike path that runs next to the RV park to enjoy some of the splendid Southern California “winter” weather.
Next stop: R&C RV Ranch
Once again, we dropped anchor in Long Beach in order to catch up on medical and dental appointments and to check in with Valerie’s family. We spent some time here back in August.
Sadly, while we were here, Valerie’s sister Kathy passed away suddenly. Valerie and her Mom traveled to Georgia to join Valerie’s other sisters in saying their goodbyes. Kathy was 58 years old. She will be missed.
Next stop: San Diego, CA
