Besides the great views, the site is larger, and there is more open space around me. I had some great neighbors in the other loop, but this spot puts me closest to Mary and Elaine who I met years before I got a lot in this park. In fact, I came here for their wedding back in 2006. Actually, they are away far more than they are here.
Moving one's home, when you live in an RV is pretty simple. But the lots have sheds on them and somehow mine managed to fill up. I was appalled at how much was in it. I had moved some things before we had a heavy rainfall and I discovered the shed on the new lot leaked. Our volunteers have been putting new shingles on sheds this year, but hadn't gotten to my neighborhood yet. But, they made it a priority and it is finished and the old shed is cleared out, as of this afternoon. But the new shed is just a pile of plastic containers and misc. Previous owners built a loft so I can store things I don't need often up there and have more space to move around in. UH OH. More space means more room for stuff. I have to promise myself to keep it open.
Here are some of the views of my new home base. As always, I am not here in the summers. The site has shade, just not as deep a shade as the old site.

The final photo is not taken in Park Sierra. Coming back after Thanksgiving, we drove by this orchard in Fresno. It was a grey day and the leaves were vibrant.
