Now at Park Sierra

    We have returned from our long trip and are now at our RV lot at Park Sierra.  It has been very hot here, and we are eager to leave as soon as we finish having some doctor appointments, and our rig is packed.  Our return from Istanbul was on June 12, then we spent the weekend in Fremont, having a family reunion at Tarra and Alonzo's house.  It was the weekend of Alia's high school graduation so they had a big party for her.  We managed to get all 4 of our kids together with us for a few hours before the party started.  Darran and Marielle (+ the baby, Evelyn), had driven up from San Diego, and they stayed only until mid-afternoon, when they had to leave for San Francisco.  Marielle's cousin was having a graduation party over there too.  The rest of us also enjoyed a very nice brunch together at a local restaurant the next day, before Thomas had to take BART back to San Francisco, and Laura and Dennis had to return to Reno.  Everyone is doing well, and it was great to see everyone. 
     Elaine and I took AmTrak back to Fresno where Gia and Elleen, friends from our park, picked us up.  Since we have been back, we have been trying to catch up on all the pent up tasks, such as going through mail, paying some bills, washing clothes, shopping, cooking, etc.  Additionally, we both had a few days in which we were a bit under the weather, so we allowed ourselves some recovery and rest time.  People at our park have welcomed us back, and we have had several nice dinners at the homes of park friends. 
     July 1 we will leave here and go to the Bay Area, where we have to inspect the rentals (insurance company demands this), and see Tarra and family again.  Then we will move up to Sacramento, to stay with Ron and Carol Leonard, and check our rentals up there.  July 5 and 6 we will visit Laura and Dennis in Sparks, where they will be moving into their new home.  Then we will drive to Thayne, Wyoming, to spend some time at Star Valley Ranch, an RV resort where several sets of friends have lots.  While we are there, I will do my best to go through all the pictures from our trip, and write some blog posts about all the adventures we have been having on our "trip around the world".  So please be patient, some interesting travel tales will be posted to this blog in a short time.
