Christmas 2008

Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you're home
God Bless Our Service People Wherever They May Be!

A Day Without Golf Is Like A Day....

We always play and Christmas time is no different...  We had a rainy few days so we had to keep the cart on the sidewalk but that means exercise.  Sue was so tired one evening we cancelled dancing and stayed home and jumped in the hot tub!

Saddleback in the distance had snow on it

Saddleback, sometimes called Old Saddleback or the Saddleback Mountains, is the landmark formed by the two highest peaks in the Santa Ana Mountains and the ridge between them. This formation, which resembles a saddle when viewed from most of Orange County, California, dominates the county's eastern skyline, and on the clearest days can be seen from most of the Greater Los Angeles Area.

Santiago Peak is the highest peak in the range and the highest point in the county at 5,687 feet (1,733 m). Modjeska Peak is the second highest at 5,496 feet (1,675 m). The two peaks form part of the border between Orange and Riverside Counties.
