We spent 12 nights at Jojoba Hills, maxing out our allowed 28 nights per year, and we didn’t do one single hike. In fact we didn’t even walk much, but we did play pickleball every day and loved it. Yes, we are addicted. We also had a great time visiting with Terry and LuAnn, John and Linda, Andrea, Judy, and all the new people we met there this time. It’s a really nice park and we feel at home there. Who knows, we may still make it our home base one of these days.
Everything is blooming there now.
Terry and Lu enjoy good craft beer as much as we do, so one day after a great lunch at E.A.T. in Old Town Temecula, we stopped off for a couple flights at Aftershock Brewing Co. Their beer is excellent! We especially liked the Caramel Kid's Delight, a 9.9% alcohol Imperial Stout with peanut butter & cocoa nibs. Definitely a dessert beer.
But it was time to move on yesterday, and not wanting to begin heading north just quite yet, we found a good deal on a weekly rate ($139) at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in Hemet, just 28 miles north of Jojoba Hills.
This is a very nice park with lovely landscaping and very elaborate facilities, including 4 pickleball courts.
This morning we wandered over to them and there was just a guy giving someone a lesson, so we hit the ball around a bit when a few others showed up. More nice people, and we got to play quite a few games. Sometimes we even feel like we’re improving! Of course after next week who knows how long it will be before we play again.
We’re visiting friends who live in Hemet later this week and hope to do a hike with them while we’re here. I’ve enjoyed a little break from blogging but will get back to it more regularly when we return to doing something more interesting than hitting around a white plastic ball with paddles.
