We spent the weekend in beautiful (and unbearably hot) Chico, California. Yes, this was the temperature at just about 5 PM yesterday. Needless to say, our Saturday Happy Hour was held in the cool comfort of our rolling home, where our trusty basement air kept things nice and comfortable.  (OK. We'll confess that the thermometer was in the sun when this picture was taken. The official high was somewhere north of 105 degrees for the day. True, it was a dry heat. But, it was still HOT!)

The reason for our visit to this toasty town was an outing of the Chardonnay Travelers, our chapter of the Winnebago-Itasca Travelers club. Our home for the weekend was the Almond Tree RV Park, a very lovely and friendly park that we highly recommend. (But, please, come when it's cooler!) This was a very special weekend for us, as it marked the first anniversary of our chance meeting with these good people on the day we took delivery of our moose. It's also the last outing we'll be able to attend for quite some time, as Bullwinkle's Travels will be taking us far and away for awhile. As always, we enjoyed the fun, food and great conversation that comes with spending a weekend with these good people. We look forward to seeing them somewhere down the road and wish them all safe travels.

There are lots of things to do in Chico. And, someday we'd like to do them. But, when the temperature soars over the century mark, the best thing to do is chill. And, that's exactly what we did. 

We're home again, but not for long. Much more to come.
