Hello friends and family. We hope all of you are safe and healthy.
We arrived back in Santee just before the virus outbreak. We were fortunate to have friends from Colorado and Pasadena come visit the first weekend we were here. And a nice visit with Lane, Ron, Lynn, Lee and Anderson early on. Now we are waiting to be able to see others and our doctors as well. The day park and front gate (where we were working) of Santee Lakes closed and we are now being tasked with other jobs to earn our free spot. We feel very fortunate that we planned to be here for three months and not moving each week as we did most of last year. As you all know, most of the state parks and many campgrounds are closed. Definitely not anything we could have imagined when we chose this retirement lifestyle!
Unfortunately, we have learned that the rodeo in Cripple Creek where our granddaughter was going to perform was cancelled mid -June. So we decided to push out our departure and leave Santee July 1st. That will give us another month to hopefully see family and friends that we haven’t been able to see since we arrived. We will be moving to another spot and do not plan to work that month. Time will tell when the day park will open up and we can receive guests. We are certainly anxious to see everyone when the time does come.
Also, given our limited (aka almost non-existent) connection we cannot post any pictures at this time! So we have a bit of catching up to do since we were in Tyler, TX!
Love to all,
Jan and Brandt
