Thursday, Nov. 25th arrived with us sleeping in. There was no rush to get up and that’s a good thing, since we stayed up last night until 11 watching a movie. We’ve seen it before but is a more ‘realistic’ one and I enjoy the characters. ‘Trading Christmas’ is the name and it is predictable but we enjoyed watching it together. We were both fighting to keep our eyes open though because of all the stupid commercials!
So, today, we got up around 7:30 and I went for a 25-minute walk around the near vicinity. It was a cool 48F/9C but I bundled for it and walked briskly. 😊 I circled our area and found where we parked in our group in 2020. It has a motorhome in the middle right now but maybe it will be open for us in January. We’ll miss the large group of friends we’ve had in the past but we’re hopeful that a few at least will be here.

This is our spot, where the Class A is
I had my tea when I returned and as the sun rose higher in the sky, it heated things up a bit. That darn wind had returned so it wasn’t exactly warm for our 10 o’clock Happy Hour. We all found a spot on the patio mat where we were comfortable and we enjoyed conversation for an hour and a half. Nice to see Lorne and Sue and great too that Gayle and John joined us. ♥
Another example of what campers are doing
This one is different
As is this one
Everyone does what they can do with what means they have
For those who have never been here,
this is what it is like
Not desert sand, but rocky sand
You drive in and just park anywhere
Lots of spaces right now - January might be a whole lot different
It was close to noon when we came inside and I made pancakes for lunch. I’ll need to do much more walking if we continue to eat like this! After dishes, we did some online stuff and Bill went up for a snooze, Gibbs curled up under my chair and I went outside to the heat of the day. Give me my sunshine! I read, I dozed and visited with Gayle for a bit.
The winds weren’t as gusty today so they were very welcome in the hot sun. The day went by slowly and because Bill had plans with the boys for 6, we had supper earlier. If it wasn’t for the residential fridge, we would have been fine, but Bill turned the genny on briefly while I cooked my veggies in the microwave. We had wieners and beans as well, cooked on the stove. It was a poor man’s meal, fitting, ha ha, and it was good. 😊
After dishes, I took Gibbs out and Bill and John left to pick Lorne up and any of the other guys at his site who wanted to go. They were headed to the Quartzsite flying club for night flying. We went last year and it was a treat to see the radio-controlled planes’ lights when you could see nothing else in the pitch black sky. This was a quiet day and I enjoyed it very much.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends, near and far. I hope you are having an awesome day. We are very grateful to call y'all our friends, whether we've met you or not. 💓💕💕💖Thank you for stopping around.
