Day 15 - Bakersfield, CA - Morgan Hill, CA

It's now Sunday, June 5. We woke up just after six this morning, got loaded up and went to breakfast at IHOP. The IHOP prices are inflated out here on Interstate 5 just like to gasoline prices. We know this because we've eaten at many IHOP restaurants on this road trip. Oh well, you do what you have to do.

After breakfast we loaded up Fannie Mae and headed out on the highway.
Five miles up the road we stopped at a Starbucks in Buttonwillow. Our bodies needed some high-octane caffeine. Gas here is $3.97. Just think how bad you would feel if you had gassed up for $4.99 and then drove by Buttonwillow and saw it for $3.97.

Stopped at a rest area at Coalinga to take a break.

Exited Interstate 5 onto Highway 152 West headed for Gilroy. Stopped at a little fruit stand just east of Gustine. It was time for another potty break. Linda got some cherries and mangos at the fruit stand.

It's pretty cloudy here today and you can tell is that there's been quite a bit of rain. John's turn to drive. Linda's been driving the last 66 miles.

We got to see something we've never seen before. San Luis Reservoir was just as calm and smooth as glass.

There is a fruit stand about 4-1/2 miles east of Gilroy. They have a herd of longhorn cattle. We stopped and John took some pictures and a short video of them.

Got home about 12:15 in the afternoon. Completely unloaded Wilma so we can take her to get a nice car wash tomorrow. Remember Wilma got bird poop on her passenger door and it's still there.

It feels good to be home it's nice and cool here in Morgan Hill very refreshing.
