We were surprised in how much snow there was even thought we knew they had some storms earlier this month. We should have brought our skis They did just open the resorts but with recent snow making in addition to the storms, they had pretty good overall coverage We got a little more snow the first night but most of it melted quickly as it warmed up a little.
We took a lot of walks in the neighborhood. There are a lot of cabins for sale. We really like this area. We have been coming here for years, skiing in the winter, and camping and kayaking on the lake in the summer. We use to camp and four wheel drive back when our kids were young and have camped at Serrano since we have had our various trailers and motor homes. This is a place we could entertain the idea of buying a place if we wanted to settle down in So Cal. Not at this point though. We still have more places to checkout. We went into the village and walked around and had some lunch at one of the restaurants there. Had lunch another day at a place that looked like was a favorite of the locals. Getting approvals from insurance company so the repair shop can get started is taking longer than we thought. We are also having the outside work done here instead of Mesa, where we got the first estimate That had never really been approved yet even though it has been a month. Easier to get this all done in Fontana. Monday, the 14th, we finally got approval for J & L to start the job on the inside.
Tuesday we left Big Bear as we decided to spend the rest of the time in Orange County near the beach somewhere. More nice scenery on our drive down the mountain. Pretty as there is still some Fall colors along with the early snow fall.
