How Many Great Days Can We Stand??

The wind picked up this morning giving our day a cool tinge—we spent much of our walk this morning down in the dry washes trying to escape the wind.  Michael noticed this ridge that was entirely quartz—why couldn’t we find some gold in that thar quartz???

Quartz Cactus and quartz3 And the cactus seem to be growing right out of the quartz.  This little cactus had some kind of red blossom or flower—it’s a little early for the cactus to be blooming.Cactus and quartz2 Cactus and quartz Welcome to the desert And this big saguaro seems to be saying, “come on, welcome to the desert.”

Decided to take the rig to the community park today, empty our tanks and take on fresh water.  It only took us about a hour.

Back home I finished up the potato salad for the gathering tonight and about 4pm we went up to John and Brenda’s.  Some friends of theirs, Margaret and Bill from Dease Lake (did I get that right John?) British Columbia joined us for sausages cooked over the open campfire, caesar salad and potato salad.  Brenda made Michael a very happy man again tonight—she baked another apple pie!  The meal was just the greatest, cooked outside—everything tasted so good. 

We visited around the campfire for a while before Bill and Margaret left to head back over to Quartzsite.  Now we are all tucked in with our generator running to replenish our batteries as we haven’t had time to run it all day today.   Such a busy social life!
