Pilot Knob RV Resort, Winterhaven, CA
We had Bocce Ball at 9:30 on Thursday, Dec. 16th so we had no need to rush around. Gibbs and I slipped out for our walk around the park at 7:15. We both enjoy it and the little guy helps to keep me active in that regard. It’s too easy to say, ‘nah, not today’. 😊 We had our coffee and tea and bundled up for the outdoor game. It was a brisk 38F/4C!

It’s amazing how powerful that glorious sun is though. Down here, it is much closer to us than it is back home and if you didn’t know that, you’d wonder how it was possible that 64F/18C could be 'sleeveless tees and sandal' weather. But it is. One of the things that I count my blessings for every day. We played for 2 hours on 2 different courts again and after the first game, I had removed my jacket. That was only 55F/12C and it isn't a physical game. ♥
We chatted with Gord and Barb to a couple of newcomers. They are newcomers to everything down here. Mic and Michelle are from Pennsylvania and newly retired. They sold their house in the last 5 months and have gone full time in their 5th wheel toy hauler.
They are here for a change of pace and a good time! They seem quite nice so we
were all giving them details on visiting Los Algodones. There is so much to
learn with this lifestyle and really no ‘correct’ way to do things but helpful tips are good to know.

lunch of a wrap for me and sandwich for Bill, I did dishes and walked up to start
a puzzle. There was one on the table ready to open so I put the other 3 away
and began. I could have found a different one but
I liked the picture. While there, I signed us up for tomorrow night’s supper as
well as the Christmas dinner which is on Dec. 24th. I’m glad it is
not potluck, instead $15/pp which we think is reasonable and we're quite happy to
At 2:30 I
returned home to my boys and started my post. With a movie on upstairs, I was
able to sit downstairs quietly and read, in between dozing and tossing Gibbs’
rope toy. It’s something we spend a lot of time doing with/for him. I have him ‘dropping’
the ball or rope before I’ll touch it and that works well. Not with everyone
though, it depends on how patient you are as to how he behaves.
For supper, I baked 5 of the large Italian meatballs for 35 minutes. They were a bit frozen inside so they look a little longer than expected. We had some leftover stuffing so I reheated that, boiled a potato for Bill and fried some cauliflower rice for me.
We were eating by 6:30 finishing up the last of the cream pie. Yummy, a fulfilling meal. After dishes, Bill went back to his movies and I worked on my post and watched my vet shows downstairs.
a good day. Just as busy as we wanted for ourselves. I enjoyed myself. Tomorrow
we have a couple of things on the agenda too so tune in and see what we’re up
to if you’d like. 😊
