Pilot Knob RV Resort, Winterhaven, CA
Bill and I were up by 7. I opted to join him with a cup of tea this morning and then at 8 we headed out for our walk. Brrr. The wind was brisk and it was only 41F making for not a very pleasant morning. We walked out the front entrance and down the road behind us. It is a nice walk around the outside perimeter of the park. We were back home after our mile and a half, quite refreshed. How nice to walk into a warm home!
|Our walk took us out and around the park
This is looking back to the Interstate and the traffic going west
There is a train going by as well but I didn't zoom in
|Gila Mountains to the east
|A wee bit of pink sunrise along the horizon
and that was the extent of pretty sky until it set tonight
At 9:20 we headed towards the Bocce ball court and stopped to say goodbye to our new friends, Steve and Lynne (and Jack). By the time we got to the court, Gordon was waving us on, saying the wind chill was making it nasty. No bocce ball today. That worked for us as we really wanted to get into Yuma for some running around and food shopping. Which we did, right promptly. First stop, Ross’s for me. I ran in quickly and picked up a second pair of Polo shoes. Yay!
|I like walking this road

Notice the flag blowing in the wind
It kept it up all day
From there, we went to Sam’s Club for about 8 items and came out with 12. After that we drove to Southwest Exchange in the Foothills of Yuma. Bill wanted to talk to someone there about what was the best way to fix the area on our roof/slide-out that was leaking earlier in the fall. We’ve had some suggestions and some ideas but now at least have a better idea how NOT to spend our hard-earned dollars. I’m glad he asked a professional so now at least we’ll look for the right stuff. That doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate help from our friends!
|This is such a pretty tree and usually this corner site is taken
|Just when I know the way to Yuma Palms Mall
Bill changes the route
Before leaving the parking lot at Fry’s, Bill pulled up to their gas pumps to fill the truck. Because of a mix-up on our card, we had 2 for some reason, we missed out on the discount. Now that we’ve got it straightened out, next time we will get 20¢/gallon off. It was 1:30 or later when we left the hobby store so Bill took me to IHop for lunch. We hadn’t eaten before we left home at 10 and other than a snack bar on the drive. This was a treat! I ordered a bacon tomato and cheese omelette with hash browns on the side. Heaven!
|What is Ptooties doing in the parking lot?
Did she follow us to Arizona?
|In honour of Rob, we ate at IHop
|Lots to choose from just on this omelette page
I had the Bacon Temptation, 2nd from the bottom
Bill had the 2 x 2 x 2 (eggs, sausage and pancakes)
|A great meal and I ate the whole thing!
|We're seeing a little more pink sky at sunset than we did at sunrise
Hopefully sunshine tomorrow!
Good night y'all!
Thank you for your visit.
