Nice day. Moving day. Our destination today was Bakersfield, California to spend the night and then head back to Prunedale, California. Our renters have moved out of the mobile home. They were there for a year. We decided this would be a good time to move back in for awhile and get Lexi established.
(We have three rentals – our home up the hill, a tiny little studio attached to a mobile home, and the mobile home. The renter up the hill in our home also takes care of the studio on AirBnB. She’s been wonderful and says she really enjoys meeting the travelers from all around the world.)
We left Las Vegas around 10:00 AM. We stopped about twenty miles down the road for gas and breakfast. Michael and Lexi went to Subway and I had Starbucks. Everything was great.
Last night Michael had asked me to make reservations for a hotel in Bakersfield. I did so through Booking.com. When we got on the road, and within a hundred miles of Bakersfield, we realized we’d be there way too early and probably couldn’t check in. We called Booking.com and they were great about canceling the reservation without charge. That’s the first time we’ve canceled on the road but glad it worked out. We then called our renter in the house and asked her if anyone was in the studio. She said no one was scheduled until Wednesday. We all then decided it was meant for us to just head on back to Prunedale and stay there until we could get beds and furniture in the mobile home.
We got into Prunedale around 6:00 PM. Our son had called and said he and his girlfriend, Arla, were in Monterey and would meet us in Prunedale. We all went to Phil’s Fish Market for dinner, along with our renter. Fun time catching up on the last eight months with what’s been happening with everyone. We love Phil’s and had been looking forward to eating their blackened swordfish. (Lexi went out to celebrate being back with a group of her friends.) Was great seeing our son, his girlfriend, and our grandpuppies – Beans, Merlin, and Rekku.
That was our day. Hope yours was great!

Nice day. Got to sleep in. The bed in the studio is only a full, little tight but it was fine. Michael got a little cold but I was fine.
Most of the day was spent going through receipts for our taxes (yuck – but it needs to be done). We also unloaded the rest of the car and went through the storage container. Lexi and I went to the store and got a few things. That was our day. Hope yours was great!
