We did leave the Salinas area today, driving past San Jose and and through the Santa Clara valley. Our rig is now parked west of San Francisco. It was great that the rain had stopped and the sun came out for our scenic drive here. We are now noticing that it is a bit cooler here, but the the sun in the afternoon warms everything up. Spring flowers and fruit trees are in bloom. Our last rv park had many blooming plum trees which were quite pretty. Right on our site where we are parked now there are several blooming trees, I have as yet to find out what they are. The picture below is that of the plum trees at our last site.
