Lake Havasu RV Resort, L.H.C., AZ
On Saturday, Feb. 29th I was up and out the door for my walk at 7. Bill had his shower while I was gone then he started packing up – with a vengeance.

Our Mobile Suite in the sunlight at the opposite end
We had said 9 – 9:30 for departure and we were hooking up by 9. Kim and Ken walked down to say goodbye so that was very nice. We had no issue with the hookup and pull out so that was a sigh of relief. As we rounded the corner, Dean and Cheri were just hopping in their truck so stopped and waved as well.
|Our friends say s'long!|
I texted Jo-Anne and Bob once we pulled out of the park and agreed to meet at a designated spot near the foothills on I-95. Our gps took us around Yuma on Fortuna Drive and that was pretty easy with one tight turn. It was only tight because the motor home in the right lane neglected to acknowledge that we were turning in the left lane at the same time. It was close but we dodged a bullet there and at one other spot along the interstate where a neighbourly Albertan tried a similar move with his pick up. Bob saw this guy almost wipe us out.
|Driving around Yuma we noticed the horizon was heavy|
Never did find out what it was
The scenery was gorgeous and ever changing so of course, my camera, was doing double duty. This blog will end up more like a photo shop today. We arrived at Lake Havasu around 1:30 and the park is very full. We couldn’t get on the east side of London Bridge Rd but she set us up side by side on the west. It is a tight squeeze and other than moving into the wrong sites, we are quite happy with our back end facing a fence.

I like the pool and clubhouse on the other side so will probably go there for any swims. I need to check out the rooms here to see about puzzles. I think the week will go fast enough so won’t be trying to jam too much extra in. With the satellite dish set up, we moved inside. There were quite a few upsets inside the Suite when I walked in. Where did we hit so many bumps? It took me a fair bit of time putting things back in order and that did nothing for my mood.

After notifying a couple of people that we’ve arrived safely, I started this post. Started and finished it, basically. With one of Bill’s movies on downstairs, I took my book upstairs to read a few chapters. It was very warm when we pulled in, 79F so when the clouds moved overhead, it was a bit of a relief. I opened the windows and stretched out on the bed. As you would expect, it wasn’t long and I was having to close my book for a snooze.
|The drive was beautiful|
|And eventually into Lake Havasu City|
|For lunch, we stopped at Mcdonald's|
and I had a coupe of egg sandwiches
without eating all of the biscuits
|They weren't as good as Tim Horton's breakfasts but not bad|
I heard Bill’s phone indicating a text message and he called up to tell me that Keith was settling in at Lone Tree BLM to the north of Lake Havasu City. We are happy that he is there, it is our favourite in the area………..well, with the exception of one personal property on Kibby that we’ve camped on. We think that Keith will like it up there very much and he is only 7 miles from our park. We’ll take a drive tomorrow to see him and his set up.
After I came downstairs at 5, Bill said he wasn’t overly hungry (we’d had a big lunch) and was happy with a peanut butter and cheese sandwich. I needed to find something so ate the last of the Caesar salad and opened a can of salmon. That was tasty and hit the spot with a cup of tea on the side. Bill took care of the dishes tonight and then we walked next door to see if Jo-Anne and Bob were up for a visit. We’d skipped Happy Hour today; we just weren’t in the right frame of mind.

We got our friends eating but instead of letting us leave they invited us in while they ate. We caught up a bit on what has been going on and a few tips were shared with each other. Higgins was typical Higgins, with his chewed-up toys, his face kisses and the way he just stretches out on the floor after greeting us. Such a little cutie pie, he is. I missed him. It was around 7 when we said goodnight after making plans to go to the flea market in the morning. I hope it is still a Sunday event.
|We visited the Francis' after supper|
As I wrote the last of my blog and downloaded pictures, Bill watched a movie. I’d mixed up a package of sugar-free, low carb chocolate pudding and whipped cream so got us each a dish. It was very good and guilt-free! That’s it for the night, uneventful. The air had cooled off since the sun went down and even though some wind was still evident at the tree tops, 72F felt quite nice filtering in through the windows of the Suite.
|An easy tasty supper|
This was a good day and we are set up in a new park in a pretty city. I'll get a picture of our sites for tomorrow's blog post.
|Dessert was quite good|
Good night from Lake Havasu City
Thank you for checking us out!
