Pilot Knob RV Resort, Winterhaven, CA
On Sunday, Dec. 29th, we were up by 7 and after Bill’s coffee, we were out the door by 8. It was a cool walk as it was only 41F/5C but we were bundled and we enjoyed the exercise. The sun came up over the Gila Mountain just as we rounded the back, east corner of the park. We saw and chatted with Joe, the manager, before returning home. It is very nice to see that he is feeling great again and back to work.

No wonder she gets excited when she sees us!
At home, Bill once more decided to take his Timber for a flight. It was very calm again. I came inside with my tea so got no pictures of his flight this morning. Around 9:30, we walked back to say goodbye to Dave and Cheryl. Before they got too involved in packing up, we got in our safe travel wishes and hugs. It truly has been nice getting to know them so well. We’ll see them in Quartzsite nearer the end of January so that will be awesome. I forgot to get a picture of the two of them beside their unit. Darn!

For breakfast, I made us a pkg of Cinnamon Rolls but we only had 2 each and I saved the last 4 for tomorrow morning. Bill had a yogourt to supplement his and because that was my suggestion. 😊 After dishes, he sat with his book for a bit and I walked up to the puzzle room for an hour and a half.
|Progress is made but I can't take all the credit|
|The hummers are happy too|
At 2, we met Kim and Ken and walked up for the Ice Cream social at the clubhouse. No banana today for me, they were too soft and need to be ‘made’ into something very soon. Ken and Kim offered to host Happy Hour today and we got back to normal. No food and no more than a couple of hours. We sat outside their Journey facing the sun and it was very warm for the first hour. Once clouds moved in, the temperature dropped. It was just before 5 when Bill and I brought our chairs home.

we were at the end of the line
Bill wanted to fly his plane at dusk, with the lights turned on so we decided to wait to eat. Just as the sky was painted a beautiful orange and pink, we walked out to the field on the other side of the fence.

|This kind of ruffling clouds always appeals to me|
I was snapping photos of the sunset as we walked because I know it changes quickly. Bill turned the ‘l e d’ lights on on his plane and up she went.

|And with the sunset as a backdrop|
What a pretty sight! Against the backdrop of the western sky, I snapped pictures throughout the 10-minute flight. That was long, believe it or not, the batteries on a higher throttle would only last about 5 minutes.
|My sweetie is in his glory|
You should be able to see the little plane too
We walked back and saw Ken and Bob outside watching and a few other rv’ers saw the plane and complimented Bill on the flight as well. We chatted with Lance and Bonnie, someone we’d met before, before returning home for supper. Bill grilled bacon cheeseburgers for us and that was all we wanted for tonight. We each craved a snack of chips later, something we haven’t had for over a month, so Bill cut some cheddar to eat along with it.

We’ve had a great day of relaxing and doing fun things. It was supposed to be a cool day of 57F, and I guess it was, but with the sun and light winds, it was the warmest one we’ve had in a while.
|there you have it|
An Arizona sunset for you
Thank you for checking in to see what we’re up to.
