Pilot Knob RV Resort
On Monday, Jan. 3rd we followed our normal routine. Gibbs and I were up at 7:30 for our walk. The sky was clear blue and it was 43F/6C. We walked fast but it was another lovely walk with the little guy. He carried a plastic bottle almost the whole way and remembered to stop briefly for a couple of territory markings.
When we got back, Bill was upstairs and the door was closed but once I put food in Gibbs’ dish, he ate it right up. I can’t figure him out but I’m glad he didn’t hesitate to gobble up his breakfast. 😊 Bill and I sat and had our morning drinks together and because the sun was bright and there was very little wind, I went to play Bocce Ball and Bill went through the fence and flew his electric plane in the desert.
Oft times, we all make pretty good shots
Sometimes the measuring tape comes out but close up, it was obvious who was closest to the pea ball (ps, I was blue, red wond)
We couldn’t hear it but we could all see it from our court. It was fun playing and we soon all warmed up. At noon, I made us bacon and eggs for lunch and after dishes and a rest, we followed through on a plan we made after our arrival here. Well, it was me more than Bill that wanted to visit the History of Granite Museum at Felicity and he agreed to go with me. Today was the day. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
The website quoted $3 entry/pp but it was actually now $5 + $3 if you wanted to go into the pyramid to stand on the actual ‘Centre of the World’. It may sound like a lot but we had a bit of a tour from Joshua and received a personalized certificate to take with us. Then we were free to roam the grounds with all of the granite monument walls at our own pace. The sun was warm, making for a nice day to be outside. It was very interesting and I do recommend it if you are in the area. 😊
I walked up to the clubhouse and the puzzle for an hour and a half while Bill and Gibbs remained at the Suite. Bill was charging his plane batteries while I was gone. With just a few days left here, we’ve decided we only have a couple of things that ‘have’ to be done before we leave. Groceries one day, laundry one day and Bill will do the things around the rv in preparation for our move.
For supper, nothing special, just some cleanup from the fridge leftovers. Pork strips and meatball sauce to reheat and I’ll fill the rest of our plates with salad and a potato for Bill. Tonight, is the beginning of our shows for the next season so we’ll have a busy evening. Too bad they put most of them on the same night. Supper was good, filling and we cleaned things out of the fridge.
After dishes, we started our procession of shows by watching 9-1-1, Lone Star. I wrote my blog during commercials and the evening passed uneventfully. This was a good day, warming up to 64F/18C before the sun started to drop. No complaints, it will be even warmer tomorrow. ♥
That museum looks like an interesting place to visit. I will have to look it up to see how they've determined it to be the center of the world. (I always thought that was Toronto, Canada, lol!)ReplyDelete
It was very interesting. :)Delete
We enjoyed that museum too.ReplyDelete
You've ptobably heard lockdown in Ontario for the next 21 days for sure. Nice that you can miss that.
I'm glad we finally got to the museum, it was worth it.Delete
I didn't hear how long the lockdown was for. Sorry, it's just going on forever!
What an interesting place to visit.ReplyDelete
Yes, we thought so too.Delete
Glad for the walk through of the Felicity church and Granite carvings. Now you two have been to the Centre of the Earth. Very interesting day.ReplyDelete
We've talked about it before and never gone, well, me more than Bill but he was glad he went too. :)Delete
I enjoyed your visit too! WE've never been but could see how it would be interesting for sure! Dinner looks yummy to me!ReplyDelete
It was a good visit, I'm glad we went.Delete
Didn't know the Centre of the World was in Arizona - or is it California you're now in?ReplyDelete
Felicity is in California. Interesting story on how the town got it's name. We actually met Felicia, the Mayor's wife. :)Delete
It was interesting reading about Centre of the World, we have driven by many times and keep saying we will stop but have never done so. I always call the stairs the "Stairway to Heaven" but now I know the real story.ReplyDelete
Not w I know what is at the museum. Thanks for the tour.ReplyDelete
