Around the park, people hang out in the evenings. You'll see groups of people here and there. This past Thursday night, we went next door to Richard and Purita's place and just sat by the campfire and chatted for some time. Most people bring their booze to drink, but we just enjoy hearing stories of peoples lives and watch the fire. Richard is from England and Purita is from the Philippines. They met and live in British Columbia, Canada. Richard was a musician (and still is - he plays for happy hour on Friday nights) and Purita was a nurse where she learned the trade in Chicago). They are a super cute couple and just barely got here about two weeks ago. Richard is so high energy and it makes for a lot of fun around here.

Saturday, we took Coco, Chanel and Roxy to the Woof Town dog park. They had so much fun and Coco really ran and ran and ran. Roxy just walked around and Chanel spent half her time running after balls with Coco and sniffing everything in her path.
Now on to cooking. Scott likes to cook. Me, not so much. But, yesterday he made his Chinese Pork Buns (Char Siu Buns) and some yummy streusel muffins while we had our James Bond marathon (last night was 1983 Octopussy). We have a stove top, oven, convection oven/microwave, so why not? We also have electrical hot plates and the Air Fryer from home. We also brought the bamboo steamer...a chef's dream. Don't they look heavenly?
So, as you can see, we have all the things we need...it's just on a smaller scale. The neighbors are wonderful and the weather is fantastic! We're sure enjoying it here. Yesterday, the weather was 80 degrees and today it's already 76 degrees at 12:30. Should get to about 79 degrees today. Another wonderful day in southern California.
