We are AZ Home!

Before sharing a few photos of our day, I want to mention what a special date of celebration this has always been for both of our families. Three very important folks in our lives were all born on this date. Rich's mom was born on October 22, 1906, my Pauline was born on October 22, 1912, and my dad, the youngster of the three, was born on October 22, 1916. We loved them and will always miss their presence in our life.

Today we drove back to our AZ home from our fabulous visit with family and friends in sunny southern California. It's a long one day drive in the motorhome so with two stops for breaks the 460 miles took about twelve hours.

We left the campground a little after 8:00 this morning. When you're driving east early in the day, cloud cover like this is very welcome.

Looking back as we approached the Santa Susanna Pass it was sunny over Simi Valley, which is where we stayed.

I loved seeing the mountains shrouded in haze as we came down the other side of the pass.

The 118 runs high above the southern edge of  the San Fernando Valley. Again, I just wanted to capture the haze that is often seen in the mornings.

Many, many miles later we saw these mountains on the horizon...Arizona!

Wouldn't you know it? There was a crash on I-10 near the airport which delayed us some.

When we got home, it was a quick unload of the refrigerator, computers, and bathroom stuff but the rest can wait until tomorrow. What a luxury it is to have it parked next to our garage!

While we were gone, our bedroom was painted and our bathroom is nearly done. The paint colors I chose...hmmm  Oh well, I'll wait and see what it's like in the morning.

Lovin' Life ~~ And CA, but Happy to be Home
