Hello to you on this Tuesday, June 9, 2020. You made it and are alive to continue on this epic journey that we have all been on lately. The ratings must be amazing or wait, do they even matter anymore? I am going to continue being me and that means juvenile humor, lots of my 420 induced memories and music. From time to time my opinion is going to sneak out and that is okay as it is okay for every one to have an opinion. That is one of the beauties of this country our rights to speak freely. There has just been so much going on that it was hard to not speak out or write about it. Anyhow, I needed a break from everything and we took a ride out to the North Shore of Salton Sea and found that all entrances were closed. We did find a yacht club that was was “open” and drove in to get a closer look. As we were leaving, we noticed a Sheriff watching us to make sure we weren’t causing any trouble in that deserted marina. No worries, the smell peacefully got us out of the area in a hurry.
Actually, this past Sunday and Monday we drove around the Salton Sea. I would have Hubby pull the car over at random areas that piqued my interest.
Near the Salton Sea we stopped at this little canal so I could snap a few photos. I made it a quick stop as the scent was not flowery and the sign warned about mosquitoes.
Here is a little Salton Sea song I found. I usually add songs to my IG stories and I added this one to a story I posted yesterday. Press play…
Sunday, we headed out before 8 AM. I look forward to these little trips as you never know what you are going to see. We headed to the North Shore of Salton Sea, but as I mentioned, the recreation areas are all closed due to Covid-19. No worries as the skies were blue and the winds were angry that day and it made standing upright a little difficult.
We drove around till Hubby found an open gate to what looked like an abandoned marina. I happily got out of the car to take photos. If you are familiar with the Salton Sea then you are familiar with the aromas of the area. I cannot find words to describe the scent but I am not sure it was earthly. I didn’t notice it for the first few minutes until I got back into the car then, oh me-oh-my-oh…
Before we headed home we drove out South East a few miles and pulled over so I could snap a few photos. There was a train on the Northbound side of Highway 111 as you can see in the driver side window.
If it hadn’t been around 90 degrees when we pulled over I would have believed that I was looking at the actual ocean and not the Salton Sea. There were small waves crashing along the shore. Again, the smell was also a little inconvenient. Really, after a few minutes, you hardly notice. After I got into the car we made a U-turn and then headed home. It was a nice little trip and just what I needed to get rid of a little cabin fever.
If you are planning a trip out to the Salton Sea be sure to check California website for state parks and check Salton Sea as there are closures that are non-pandemic related as well as pandemic related closures.
Thank you, dear reader for the visit. Where ever you are going may you get there safely. Hugs…
