We are in San Juan Bautista, California staying at the Betable RV Resort. We had a pretty easy drive because we decided to totally by-pass San Francisco and took the Oakland route.

This part of California is having a record breaking heat - wave. It has been over 100 degrees and we are running the air conditioners night and day. It is suppose to only last a couple of days, thank goodness.

We just heard on the news that the Harbor Seals in Santa Cruz are having babies and you can view them on the beach from a distance. This will be one of the first places we visit. :-) We are only 6 miles from the town of Gilroy. It has the Annual Garlic Festival each July and is known as the Garlic Capital of the World. I am adding some pictures we took while riding through Gilroy and a few of San Juan Bautista. We have a lot of exploring to do. More later from California.
