On Sunday, Nov. 18th we were awake and up to new surroundings by 6:30. Still dark but I opened the blinds anyway. Only our friends to see in our windows and I doubt they were up yet. Behind us is a hill of rock, stone and sand and occasionally (depending on the time of day) our quail friends. We are in Site 9 and I’m blown away by how empty the park is this time.
Things are very neat and old rv’s that seemed to sit with no inhabitants have been moved out and/or onward to rv heaven. It was too dark to walk but the temperature was lovely at 54F already. Bill and I had our morning brew and read a few recent blog posts from our friends. I didn’t go back any further than yesterday, mainly at this time, I just wanted to see where everyone was and what they were up to.

Then, with my tea finished, I went for a walk around the park. I do love this park. The wind doesn’t bother us and we were welcomed yesterday with some beautiful calm weather. The temperature today made a steady climb from the early morning 54F to mid-70’s by 2 o’clock. Perfect weather in our books. Bill and Rob had started yesterday on trying to fix our bedroom slide.
|What's not to like?|
|I am never disappointed with the views here|
This morning, they did a double-take to see exactly what they’d need and drove into Bullhead City. I asked Pat if she wanted to walk with me around 10 so we headed out as the guys were just returning. We had a nice walk around the perimeter and into the clubhouse to check things out. I'd signed us all up for the park's Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. It is a potluck so we'll need to have to come up with a contribution each.

With the purchase of a cable, clamps, eye bolts, a pair of bolt cutters and about 5 hours of labour, there were 3 smiling faces. They were thrilled that they were able to replace cables etc. and with only one break for coffee and cookies, very tired and dirty. Our bedroom slide was now moving in and out. Not perfect, but close to it. It just needed an eyeball on it each time.
|There they are, working hard and steady|
These guys don't give up
and thank goodness for that
|Nothing wrong with this site|
Nobody behind us, good friends beside us
and the sky is pure blue
|The clubhouse has been recovered in stone that has the look of|
weathered wood - I love it!
|the pool is nicely heated now and I will be in it a few times before we leave|
I opened a can of low salt (noticeably so) chicken noodle soup and we had a couple of slices of freshly baked Italian bread with peanut butter. It was simple, tasty and filling. Bill was recording Madame Secretary while we watched American Pickers, one of the shows we enjoy. After all, we both visited their shop in Iowa last fall so we must like it.
|Can you feel it? sitting in that heated outdoor pool|
looking at that gorgeous view
|The clubhouse is set up nicely for breakfast or ice cream social or just playing cards|
|This morning, I contributed 6 pieces to this creation|
|There are 4 or 5 new rental cabins throughout the park|
|a lovely picture of my lovely buddy Pat|
|And I had to include this collage from yesterday's pictures|

Pat sent these to me and I love them! (thank you Pat!)
Good night from all of us at Ridgeview RV Resort
