Pilot Knob RV Resort, Winterhaven, CA
On Saturday, Dec. 11th, it was almost a repeat of yesterday. Almost. Gibbs and I were up at 7:30 and out the door for a walk, leaving our Sleeping beauty at home in bed. I never question what time he comes to bed, but since he doesn’t wake me as he crawls in, it doesn’t matter. It’s nice for him to sleep with no concern of alarms or schedules.
|It was a very windy morning|
Today, it was quite windy and this made our walk a chilly one. I’m not whining, just informing. It was 52F/11C at the time we left the Suite. Gibbs has become accustomed to our walks, I think, and although we don’t trudge far, we cover a lot of ground in 30 minutes. We both walk fast. When we returned, Bill was up, making the bed so I fed Gibbs and we sat and had our coffee and tea together.
I tried the yogourt that I bought at Fry’s. ☹ Let’s just say that unless I add something to it, I won’t be enjoying it like my ‘good’ stuff. Fresh fruit might be necessary. Anyway, Bill reminded me that ‘we’ were going to do laundry, so I sorted 2 loads and took Black Beauty up to the laundromat. The 4 washers were free so after loading ours, I returned home.
When I went back up 30 minutes later, I transferred them to the dryers and popped into the clubhouse. The puzzle room is still closed, and could be for the whole time we’re here, but the back table in the ch has puzzles on the go now. I sat and worked away until the clothes were ready. I was in my happy place again. ♥ It’s interesting when conversations are going on in other parts of the room, I can block them out or listen in quietly if there is anything ‘good’. 😊
I returned home with the clean laundry and we had bacon and eggs for lunch. I made the eggs for dipping and had a slice of bread with it. After dishes, Bill and Gibbs dozed while I had my shower. We agree that in a park, we can have as many showers as we want, we’re paying for it! It was around 1:15 AZ time that we loaded into the truck and drove to Holtville Hot Springs LTVA.
Our good friends, Lori and Roland (& Schatzi) are there for the whole season and we try to never miss a visit when we’re this close. I’m a sentimental gal and love reminiscing about how we met our special friends. We met Lori’s Dad first, Oscar, when we parked beside them in Bullhead City, AZ in Nov. 2016. There is a story there that we’ll likely never forget and one we all still laugh about. We miss seeing Oscar and Judy though. ☹

ambitious date palms
Our visit lasted for a couple of hours but in that time, we got a tour of their new Alliance 5th wheel toy hauler, had a snack and some drinks, caught up from the last couple of years and Schatzi and Gibbs briefly met. We think Gibbs is a small dog but next to this little pip squeak, well, our boy seems quite big. I believe he frightened her. We said goodbye for now, with plans to see other again at our place.
Back home, neither of us were hungry so waited until 7 to have supper. Warm chicken and mayo on a warm bun with Caesar salad. Yum, that was delicious! I wish I had dessert but that is just habit, since Lori had made some yummy fudge. Dessert before supper, who says that isn’t okay? (besides our Moms). After dishes, we watched movies. I was surprised to see another Jason Bourne movie was on so watched it. Parts were familiar so that made me very curious.
|It was wonderful to see these guys again|
This was another wonderful day in Paradise. 😊 We’re having a nice time here at the Knob.
Thank you for stopping around.
