Sunrise, Sunset, I Never Tire of Their Beauty

Location: La Posa South, Quartzsite, Az

Saturday, Dec. 10 was a L O V E L Y day! My favourite so far, especially if the weather is taken into account.

We were up before the birds and some neighbours at 6:30 am and headed into Quartzsite for an 8 o’clock appointment at RV Lifestyles. They were installing a Blue Flame propane heater in our Suite. No problem we had packed up what we needed to and hooked up the night before, so all we had to do was close the slides and go. After getting dressed, of course! Once more, I will let Bill post more on that, visit On Our Way

The weather was looking pretty fine, I’ll tell you. At 8 am it was a balmy 54F and by 9 it was hovering around 65F and by mid-afternoon it reached 78 beautiful Arizona degrees on our thermometer! 

I pulled out my counted cross stitch for the second time this week already and settled in the heat of the sun for about an hour. It is a continuing project, started in 1997 (don’t laugh) but one I intend to finish ONE day. I like that I can work on it for as long or as little as I want, put it away and still have it to work on another day.
this one was taken Friday, when the sun wasn't as full and it
was a bit cooler
Since we’d gone to Times Three Family Restaurant for breakfast while the rv was in the shop, I wasn’t in need of lunch. I continued counting stitches while Bill made a sandwich and he went with Clemson for a snooze. 

After about an hour I realized I needed to get up and move so I went for a long walk to the opposite end of La Posa South for a change. You could get lost in this place………as a matter of fact I know someone who has! Ha ha, you know who you are!

By 3 pm Gerry had invited us to their rv next door for happy hour so we made up a couple of Pina Coladas and took our chairs over. Barb joined us as did George and Suzie to share in the ‘Happy’.
Thursday's happy hour at the Yates'
The temperature starts dropping rapidly once the sun sets so we all went ‘home’ for dinner with interruptions only to take photo shots of the beautiful and ever changing sunset. These were Saturday night shots.

And the grand finale

Below, just shots of the last couple of nights. When you think you’ve seen the most gorgeous one yet, blink and look again. 

Tonight I saw Melinda and George out doing the same thing as I was!                  

Last night, it changed many times in a matter of minutes

Enjoy and thank you for reading.


  1. Glad the Blue Flame installation went off with no problems.
    We saw Times Three Family Restaurant the other day and when we were coming back to town today. We Plan on trying as many of the restaurants in this town as we can.
    We love the sunsets as well.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Yes we were very pleased with the installation and after having it on the lowest setting last night, we love it! The breakfast was great at Times Three. We don't eat out too often so were happy to pick a good one. :)

  2. You will really enjoy that Blur flame heater and over the years will pay you back many times. The solar guy is very reasonable too, but we have all we need and he actually installed our original system 19 years ago.

    1. Yes very happy with the heater already and I'm sure it will pay for itself. Looking forward to meeting with Brian today, I like that we won't have to move the rv to have it done too.

  3. I have so many sunset pics, and sunrises too.
    We will see you later today.

    1. Just keep taking the pics, and then keep the best ones. Looking forward to seeing you later.

  4. Glad to hear that two of my sisters have met up down in the 'sunny south'. We are sticking it out in south Western Ontario Canada. Tough Canucks I guess! We have a bit of snow and the temperature has gotten down to -6 but it is winter and we expect this and get used to it pretty quickly.

    1. Yes, they made good time and it was great to see them arrive safely. I guess you are tough Canucks and one day we will have to toughen up too but not for 15 to 20 years!
