1950's breakfast and 1880's gunfight
We had a chance to drift back in time today. We started with a drive on a section of the historic route 66, with a stop at Peggy Sue’s nifty 50’s diner for breakfast. It was indeed a “blast from the past”. I also had my first ever chili omelet for breakfast (or any other meal for that matter). The place was not much to look at from the outside, but was traditional 50’s on the inside with uniforms of staff and music to match the décor. It was really a fun way to have breakfast.
We then took a tour of Barstow, Ca and have determined that this will not be on our short list of places to retire too. In fact, it will not likely be on any of the long lists either.
We then headed back to the Calico Ghost Town for a second short visit and watched the street gun fight-not quite the OK corral-but still amusing. We also visited the town cemetery, which reflects the rough environment that the town existed in.
We are now making preparations for are trek past Los Angeles and down into the greater San Diego area, where we will be staying at the Ramona Canyon RV resort. We are really hoping for some warmer weather.
