|Back last Oct. we met Karen and her mom on the Blue ridge Parkway while camping. We became friends and stayed in touch over the months. Well we stopped in Phoenix to visit Karen and now we had the pleasure of a nice visit with Alma in Carpinteria. What a great person and Bev and I enjoyed having dinner with her at The Palms in old downtown. Tomorrow we either head north or stay one more night,and that depends on if the camp has room for us to stay. With out reserving a site we might get kicked out. we will see.
