Celebrating in California

In 1958, my dad's baby brother moved to California about one hour from Los Angeles.  Uncle Bill is the last of the Martin boys surviving his three older brothers, and we visit him each year for Christmas.  Of course, it doesn't hurt that this IS California and the weather is usually great.  This year - sunny and almost 80F (27C) and no wind.  Sigh...  Compared to the ice storms back home, we are in heaven!

A solar farm (mirror type) in the desert on I-15 somewhere between Las Vegas and San Bernardino. We've seen a few of these out here this year. Only two of the three towers are online at this facility.
Christmas Day with Uncle Bill at our trailer at the East Shore RV Park in San Dimas.
The Puddingstone Reservoir is used for year-round recreation - fishing, boating and swimming. Lots of people are out today (Boxing Day which the Americans don't celebrate) enjoying the unusually warm weather. Our trailer is on the hill behind us, overlooking the lake. What a view!
