Viejas Casino, CA

I love this place! 


Viejas Casino – 30 miles from San Diego in Alpine, CA – joins the top contenders in my favorite RV-friendly casinos.  Right up there with Tucson’s Casino Del Sol and Chinook Winds in Lincoln City, OR. 

The temps have been in the delicious 70’s with overnight lows in the 40s.  What a relief from Yuma! 

Debbie and I feel like we climbed out of the Seventh Circle of Hell and escaped to, well …. a place called Alpine

No air-conditioning needed, just open windows!

Not only is the casino big and beautiful, but there is the added attraction of the adjoining outlet shops.  




I didn’t realize how shopping-deprived I was after being so long in Yuma. 




I do some much-needed home decorating.

After


The casino has its own bowling alley, so we make time in our busy schedule for that.




Oh well.


And there is always time for …. well, you know.

Fish Tacos

In the icing-on-the-cake department, Suzanne joins us later today! 

Thanks to everyone for your encouraging comments about my decision NOT to hang up the keys to the GDB in order to return to work full-time.  

I still haven’t wrapped my mind around the fact that I can continue to live this way for months out of the year.  More and more, the implications are becoming evident and … they are all good.

I plan to post more about the circumstances later.  For now, let’s just say I feel like the luckiest person on the planet.

  2. So glad you aren't roasting in Yuma any longer! If you are there for any length of time there are some nice hikes at Mt Laguna (dogs allowed). Try the Laguna Meadows trails or the Sunset trail...

    Don't forget to ask for a pool/hot tub pass!
