Today is our 35th anniversary. That sounds like a big number, but it sure does not seem like it has been that long. We gave each other anniversary cards and then packed up the motorhome, hit the road and drove through Fresno and stopped in Coarsegold. It is a small town, but beautiful with many, many trees. We absolutely LOVE our campsite. We have been in some RV parks where the sites are crammed together. This site is unbelievably large and roomy. We are on a cul-de-sac with only one other rig (the owner of the park). After Charlene set up the outside mat and chairs, we had a beautiful outdoor “living room.”

Charlene loves all the privacy and space of our new site.

Charlene’s first agenda item after seeing such a beautiful site was to head to a hardware store where we bought bird food to set up next to our rig. We also bought some cookies and two cupcakes to celebrate our anniversary from a veterans group selling items outside the hardware store. We next walked through the quirky, fun antique shops in Coarsegold.

While in one of the shops, we met a woman (Gina) from Oregon that has been a solo RVer for 3 years. She is a member of Escapees and we compared Escapees parks which we had each visited. She described some RV rallies in Georgia, Florida, and Arizona that she had attended. She kept saying over and over how much she loved traveling in her motorhome. Although we had never met, we knew a number of the same people. She will be a camp host this summer at an RV park just outside of Yosemite National Park. We do not know when, but I am sure we will run into her again at an RV rally or RV park someplace in the future.

Using her smart phone, Charlene found a barbeque restaurant in Oakhurst (a nearby town) that was highly recommended in some reviews on the Internet. Barbeque pork is so yummy!
