Autumn, the park, and other things.....

 7:27 am - Thursday - September 15th - Likely, CA - 42° F, 38% humidity, wind 11 mph out of the north by northwest......cloudy today with a forecast high of 76° F.  On this date in 2020 we arrived at Seal Rocks RV Cove for what would end up being a 12 month stay....still miss that place......↴


It has been a few days since I last posted about Sunday.  Sunday was the last warm day for a while. It began raining Monday evening, and rained all night, and continued on and off all day Monday.  In spite of all that I still staged the 5 Club Car electrics, and eventually we rented another 5 of the Yamaha gassers.  Unfortunately for the golfers it began raining in earnest around noon time for about 30 minutes, which chased many of them off the course, and then it rained even harder around 1 pm bringing the few golfers who remained out on the course back to the Clubhouse....... spite of the rain I worked a full day, and cleared the driving range of balls.  Unfortunately the rain early afternoon prevented any mowing, so I had to clear the balls again Tuesday morning.   I was off by 4 pm....yup, I went back to going to work at 7:30 am.  I think Sunday was my final early workday of the summer as it seems someone has flipped the switch from Summer to Fall.


After staging 10 carts to begin the day I headed out to check out the condition of the golf course after the rain, and decided to take a few pictures along the way of my favorite holes, and surrounding scenery......

Par 3, hole #3

Cool ranch house on a neighboring ranch

Par 5, 4th hole

The longest par 5 I have ever played....6th hole

Bridge over water on the 6th hole

One of my favorite holes......#8, par 4, elevated tee

My absolute most favorite hole, #16, par 3, extremely elevated tee

....while I was making my rounds I came across an 8 point buck, and then caught a picture of him and his lady friend grazing on the 5th fairway.......

Par 5, 14th hole....long uphill fairway, dog leg left

About 100 yards out from the 14th's kind of a blind shot into the green

......Tuesday was kind of a slow day with only 8 carts going out.....sometimes you need a slow one!

The overhead sky was very clear Tuesday evening, allowing me to get this great shot of the moon.....

....there were, however, clouds on the western horizon, which provided for a beautiful sunset.....


On our fourth, and final workday of this 8 day cycle, we rented 10 golf carts.  It was a beautiful, autumn day.  I wore gloves for the first time to work in ages, and I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing a watch cap to work during my next work cycle.  I love that cool, crisp feeling that hangs in the autumn air all day long. I wore my hoody sweatshirt until almost noon time.  There was another first Wednesday morning....we turned on two of our electric heaters first thing in the morning.....first time in 3 months, and haven't run our A/C in 3 days!

TLE tells me we only have 12 work days left before we haul anchor.  Our last work day will be October 8th, and we will be on the road heading south by the 9th, or 10th at the latest.  It is time to begin organizing the trailer, and putting a lot of stuff away....we have got a lot of STUFF out, and I don't even want to think about how long it will take to put it all away.

Our new Starlink internet service continues to work flawlessly.  We can stream TV day, or night with no interruptions in service.  Of course we are in a very rural area, which helps a lot, but so far it has exceeded our expectations.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I hope that, after you move, you relate what you needed to do to keep and re-link to the Starlink Service. I KNOW you can't use it while in motion, but there are times we get to a place that our aircard just does not have much of a connection or they slow us down during busy times. Thinking of adding Starlink and keeping our Verizon unlimited prepaid aircard.

  2. Hi Dave! I will be site to report when we move to a new location. According to my good friend, Richard Entriken, who also has Starlink with the RV endorsement, all you do it set it up, plug it in, and you have internet in minutes.
