Finally – Loma Linda!

Loma Linda at last.  Lisa and I pulled into our apartment complex around 3:00 pm (PST) yesterday and got settled into our new place.  Our apartment is in a small complex of four “cottages” and is an upstairs unit with a balcony.  We met a really nice couple living here while the husband receives cancer treatments at the hospital.  Apparently many patients stay here during their treatment.  Donna and Gary live in Northern California and told us they were members of a Latter Day Saints church.  We hit it off really well and will enjoy getting to know them.  Gary said it was an hour and half to two-hour drive to Disneyland (depending on the traffic) which sort of disappointed me as I am hoping to be able to work there but that may not work out.

We met one of the apartment office managers who came by to see if we needed anything.  Prince is a native of Ghana and is in his second year of med school at the University.  The Loma Linda medical campus consists of the hospital and a university and is about a five-minute walk from our apartment.

It took us about four hours to get here from Las Vegas and the traffic became insane the closer we got to Los Angeles.  We were told that the Loma Linda area is very quiet and safe with many seniors in the area (they can now add two more) but that the San Bernardino side of the interstate is a lot different with higher crime rate.

Hopefully we will get all that figured out and soon.

We will tell more of our story and experiences here in California as we get settled.

Thanks for reading!

Steve and Lisa

  1. All the leaves are brown
    And the sky is gray
    I’ve been for a walk
    On a winter’s day

    I’d be safe and warm
    If I was in LA (or Loma Linda)
    California dreamin’
    On such a winters’ day.

    I know you’ll enjoy your stay there. You’ll make the best of everything situation. I would agree with your neighbor that Disneyland is too far away to drive with the added traffic time. I’m sure you’ll find a cool place though to use your expertise and wonderful people skills to the max!
