Yes...we are back from our trip...Yes...everything is OK!

video

We are so thankful for God's protection on this trip!

Our close call... http://news.webshots.com/album/563642467tkgxEW

I grabbed my camera when I saw them lay the spike strips…then we saw the car coming down the freeway. I did not even realize I kept shooting during the whole chase until I went to download my pictures later in the day. We had to run from our motor home the police were afraid the truck would explode…and it did! The truck driver did make it out of his truck...the driver of the car did not make it out...we never found out why he was being chased.

The pictures aren’t real good…but you can see how close we came to being hit…the truck had just passed us…so if he hadn’t been in front of us…then I’m sure that car would have hit us.

We are still on tour!

Ok…I know…it’s been awhile since I posted a blog. Believe me…I’ve tried several times! When you are way out in the middle of nowhere…at least that’s what it feels like sometimes…the internet is not your friend!

You know the feeling when you are finally finished with your blog and you click on publish…and it disappears!?! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr

Anyway…we have gone a long ways!

We stopped off in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and spent a few days…hot and sticky days I might add. If you are ever in that area…check out this area!


Then on to West Memphis, Arkansas…on the Mighty Mississippi River! That river is BIG and WIDE! We stayed at the Tom Sawyer’s Mississippi River RV Park…right on the river! www.tomsawyersrvpark.com/ That was exciting…the barges…paddle wheelers or paddle boats on the move all day and all night up and down the river!



We stayed there a few days…it was so relaxing.

We checked out Memphis, Tennessee…what fun that was. Don’t miss Beale Street in Memphis when you are there! They close down Beale Street on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and you can hear the blues everywhere! Best place for food and blues on Beale Street? BB King’s of course…where else?

Ever had deep fried dill pickles? NO? Well that is a must if you go to BB King’s…that was one of his favorites! They were so good we went back a second time! Just look at those ribs and wings and deep fried dill pickles!


Then on to Red Bay, Alabama…home of the Tiffin Motor Home Plant…where our RV was made. We needed a little work done on our RV…so back to the factory we went. http://www.tiffinmotorhomes.com/abouttiffin/heritage.php While work is being done on our RV…we stay in the Allegro RV Park for free! So we have been here almost a week. Monday morning…we head out of town and on down the road.

The Magnolia Trees are beautiful here in Red Bay. The blossoms are huge! No...that is NOT a blossom on my head...it's my sun visor.

As they say here in Red Bay...have a good'n! (have a good one)

I love this town...they are so friendly!

Until next time we are..."on the road again"!

We left our hearts in San Francisco...again!


My husband, John and I love San Francisco!

One Saturday it was such a nice day we decided to take off for San Francisco. What a “perfect weather” day it was! Near 70 degrees and no wind…very rare for San Francisco!

We crossed the Golden Gate Bridge . . . warning…taking these shots can make you sick!


Then decided to check out the Sutro Baths. . . learn about them here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sutro_Baths . . .

And The Cliff House . . .

Look at this perfect heart shape . . .
Then . . . down to the wharf . . .

Oh hello . . .
Then to the Rain Forest for lunch . . .


Can’t leave San Francisco without taking home some bread…yummy!

The end to a perfect day in San Francisco . . .
