Father's Day Trip

When my father in law Clyde passed away we inherited
his membership  to Catalina Spa and RV resort in Palm Springs.
We enjoyed many memories of him on this father's day weekend.

We resently purchased a motorhome.

We decided for our first outting
we would take it to the resort.

We didn't have to much trouble finding a spot.
We were practically the only ones there.
The snowbird return Nov.1

It was very windy.

We parked closed to the family pool.  There is an adult
only pool also.

This is the family pool.

And laundry.

Rental trailers... 10 in a row.

Kiddie pool.

Natural hot springs.

Covered area with a rec room.

Beautiful hills.

Lots of palm trees.

                                      Birds in a tree hiding from the wind.

We are ready for our next outdoor adventure.

Thank you Lord for making this all possible.

So easy and tastes good

English Muffin Bread
5 1/2 cups warm water
3 packages RAPID RISE yeast
2 Tablespoons salt
3 Tablespoons sugar
11 cups bread flour
Place all the dry ingredients in an electric mixing bowl.  Turn mixer on very slow and stream in warm water then spoon into (4) well greased loaf pans.  Dough will be very sticky.  Let rise in pans until dough reaches the top of the pans, and bake in 350 degree oven for 35 minutes then brush with melted butter. Bake an additional 10 minutes.  Makes 4 loaves. Bread will be moist at first. Allow the bottom to dry before placing in a plastic bag.  Allow to COOL COMPLETELY before cutting. Makes terrific toast.
