Some Ho-Hum Days

Friday we didn't do much--our Algodones trip exhausted us probably due to the heat--so we spent most of the day just relaxing.

Saturday we decided to go check out the garage sale at the RV park next door--that's always a mistake when married to a collector of treasures as Michael is! But it was me that ended up collecting treasures--I snagged a large copper pot with lid that I will plant flowers in for the deck this summer and I got the cutest little antique kerosene stove, chrome and black that I will also put out on the deck. Michael picked up a couple of odds and ends for the RV and we were back home. We spent the rest of the day napping and relaxing--are we bums or what????

AZ has been in the midst of a heat wave, unusual temperatures for this time of year. The forecast called for a break in the heat brought by a front packing very strong winds that was to arrive early Sunday morning. So, we got up and got started very early for us, we pulled out of Black Rock RV Park before 8am and made it to Yuma just as the winds were starting. We've been rocking and rolling ever since! There is a huge cloud of dust hanging over Yuma and everything inside the RV is coated with a fine layer of dust.

We went to Wal Mart and picked up a few groceries and had a late breakfast at Penny's Diner--very good. We were going to a fruit stand I noticed on the drive in but they had closed up their tent probably due to the wind and dust.

I would love to take some photos of this dust storm but I don't want my camera out in all the dirt--maybe tomorrow.

We are staying in the Yuma Escapees park and it has been a very pleasant surprise--we have had a couple bad experiences at Escapees parks but this one has been great. The park is totally leased, there is a waiting list to get in and the person on the top of the waiting list has been on that list since 2003! The lots are rented out when the owners are away and we are renting one of those lots--very nice, large site near the 7 acre fenced dog park! Yuma has a year round population of 80,000 which doubles in the winter!

We are off to Mexico again tomorrow for more dental work--I'm taking the camera this time.
