The facility is beautiful. We walked around the game field, then wandered over to one of the training fields where some of the Dodgers were practicing. Dodger spring training has been on Bob's bucket list for years. The day has arrived and Bob is thrilled.

The day was relaxing and we had a good time. The Dodgers, however, lost 4-1. Didn't really matter to us. We both grew up in southern California and went to Dodger games as kids, but we lived over 30 years in Oregon and rooted for the Mariners too. We used to take trips to Seattle to see the Mariners play.
After the game, we were off to meet blog friends Ingrid and Al of "Live Laugh RV, Our Next Chapter..." at Pleasant Harbor RV Park, across Lake Pleasant from where we camped. A number of RVers meet at the community picnic table to enjoy the beautiful weather, fellowship and sunset. Through the course of the evening 11 people showed up.
We had drinks, snacks and stories to share, not to mention the spectacular sunset Mother Nature provided. Linda, who writes Bear Tracks Blog, and her husband Mike were there with their cute pooch, Lucy. I had not read her blog before and added her to my reading list. They are full time RVers and before becoming landlubbers, they lived on their sailboat for seven years. A motorhome is like a mansion to them!
