I'm pleased to announce that at 10am I am officially showered and dressed. Jim? Not so much. I'm working on laundry in the meantime. He wasn't feeling well yesterday. I don't know what that has to do with today either.
We're going to Yosemite late this afternoon. We'll have a better chance of seeing animals at sunset when most become active. I hope to see that rainbow in the waterfall again. That was at about 4pm yesterday when I saw it. I'd like to get a few more photos. Perhaps they'll come out better.
We had looked at going to the Ahwahnee hotel/restaurant in Yosemite for Sunday brunch. Last night, Jim called to make reservations. Luckily he asked the price. $50 each. We canceled. Like who would pay $50 each for a meal? $260 for 2 maybe, but not $50 each. The nerve. Anyway, maybe we'll go visit. The 1980 version of The Shining based it's interior shots on that of the Ahwahnee Hotel interior. Maybe we'll stop by the hotel and get a few lobby shots. It's not important though.
Jim is back in bed again. He's not feeling well. He's got a tummy ache. I apologized, "Sorry, the bottle said it was suppose to be painless."
There's a creek behind the RV. We can see it from the front windows and the dinette. It's a much prettier spot than we had on February's visit. I took Dasher for a walk to where some mini falls of sort crashes onto rocks and into this creek. It's a pretty view. The sites closest to that area don't have full hookups. Dasher enjoyed the creek-side walk and of course in the shallow waters, managed to find a bone. Not knowing what kind of bone it was, I wrestled it from him and threw it into the creek from whence it came. Dasher doesn't like water so he didn't dive in after it. He just went looking for another one from the Magical Creek of Bone Splendor.
We've enjoyed California a lot. I guess being jam packed with major popular cities makes it more fun. During one of the Hollywood tours we went on, the guide said that area was popular for movie making because of the different climates and terrains. Where else can you have ocean, dessert sands, snow capped mountains, etc? I am looking forward to Arizona as well as Texas.
We're back from our late afternoon Yosemite visit. We saw a coyote fairly close up (too dark for a photo) and tons of deer. Alas, still no bears. I also missed rainbow time at the falls.
We got to the Ahwahnee Hotel. It really wasn't anything spectacular. I think I expected more since it seems to be popular. The "backyard" was really pretty so we decided to have an appetizer and a drink as the sunset. We had "crab & artichoke dip with garlic crostini" for $15. Not too bad. We ordered 2 amaretto sours but didn't know the price of them. They were .25 more than Spago. $10.25 each! A $40 pitstop. Ick. Next time we'll have soda or we'll inquire as to the beverage prices.
It was too dark for the deer to photograph well so here's a video below.
