This morning Dan, Pat, Teddy & I explored the park and it is in truth, a small town with over 2000 winter residents. There is a small store, a health center, beauty shop, massage room, laundry, tennis, bocce & horseshoe courts, a café, library and game rooms. It is a very large park with 800 full hook-up sites and 200 dry campsites. We are told that there are over 2000 winter residents dwindling to about 200 in the summer. This is also a geothermal area and there are two artesian mineral water steam rooms, two whirlpool tubs, a hot mineral water spa, three therapeutic mineral water jet pools and two large swimming pools.
After spending some time in the spas we had lunch and spent the afternoon touring the area in our truck. We drove about 10 miles to the south end of the Sea to observe some of the bird life.
At this point my GPS was reading minus 240 feet.
... we continued on to an area where there are these geothermal mud pots.
From there we drove through “Slab City” an area where many people dry camp on an old abandoned military post.
Tomorrow morning there is a breakfast in the “Rec Hall”.
