The fun didn’t stop after the WIN dance rally…
The WIN Dance Rally ended on November 21st, and after getting a new tire in Surprise, Arizona for my RV I pointed my rig toward Indio, California. My new friend Al and I drank some great red wine, had some nice dinners, and shopped ’til we dropped at Costco (Al) and Sam’s Club (me).
Then, it was on to Borrego Springs, California at Peg Leg Smith Monument for the annual WIN Thanksgiving shindig!
Julian is a quaint little town in the mountains that boasts wonderful apple pie. In actuality, the main bakery has pies baked in San Diego and then trucked up to the little mountain village where they add mucho dollars to the price. However, lines were long and people shelled out $14.99 for mediocre apple pies.
“Mom’s Mediocre Pies”
There were tons of people eating in “more expensive than average” restaurants, and wandering the streets buying pie (duh!) and homemade
crap, junk, articles.
Julian is pretty, but not worth a fifty plus mile round-trip for lunch…
The autumn foliage was pretty…
Dogs were interesting too!
Back at the ranch in Borrego Springs…
The WIN’s gathered together for Thanksgiving in the Desert. Groups decorated their tables with flowers bought at the Farmer’s Market on Christmas Circle in town, and all sorts of holiday paraphernalia.
The prettiest table setting (IMO)!
Beautiful fresh flowers…
My table was the best!
However, I must admit that I helped “prune” a rose bush outside a winery (closed) in Julian to score the beautiful rose.
There was food and fun!
Time to eat!
The food was yummy and we actually had TWO meals – one on Thanksgiving and one the next day. On Friday we went to the American Legion for dancing, drinks, and karaoke (not necessarily in that order).
Needless to say, everyone was happy and well fed…
