Smith Family Newsletter
I spend a significant amount of time at my desk, working on my monthly newsletter, picture programs, and planing future tours. As you can see Whiskers and Princess are on my staff.
Wow! This month has really flown by! Between us, Bob and I have completed 15 medical appointments, as well as neumerous errands connected with the motorhome and jeep. When we weren't doing that, we were planning our route West, making plans for the Fall 400 Rally, and cleaning up the coach inside and out. We did a little recreating on the nicer, warmer days. We visited Huntington State Park which we enjoyed very much and will talk about later. Our friends, Paul and Angie are parked right next to us and spent some afternoons sitting in the warm sunshine chatting together. Another thing we really enjoy doing here is our walks through Barefoot Landing. Barefoot Landing has the ONE SHOW, which we took time to see again. The show changes with the season and is always first class.
So Where is Dinner?
Usually we eat out about fifty percent of the time, either alone or with friends. We usually try and find new and interesting places to eat when we are here. With Paul's help we found a new pizzeria, JUNIOR'S, to take the place of Gino's that went out of business. I think this new one is even better
and soooo New York!! Another great Restaurant,
CHIANTI SOUTH. For those who are familiar with the one on Broadway in Newburgh, NY, it
was owned by the same family untill May '06, when they retired and the chef bought it. The food is excellent and we consider it a tast of home! Then there is our favorite breakfast place, DINO'S, just down the street. We don't do breakfast very often, but they have buckwheat pancakes which we can eat and is the only place that has them. Since we are here mostly in the off season, we rarely go out to eat without a discount coupon. Well, someone has to support the local establishments, so why not us?

park, Huntington Beach. It has 30 rooms and it
was made of stone by local laborers.
