A Lovely Summer/Winter Day and a Drive (with quite a few pictures)

Park Place RV Park

Bill was up with Gibbs around 6:30 and with very little encouragement, they went out for Gibbs’ morning constitution and Daddy walk. When Gibbs joined me back in bed, we stayed there, dozing, until 7.  Bill had his last club meeting at Jim’s hangar this morning so left around 8:30. I knew it was coffee hour at the clubhouse so didn’t rush over to work on the puzzle.

Gibbs and I got out for our walk
this morning

Now, do you think he is having
mischievous thoughts?
He's waiting for Daddy to share the cheese.

Gibbs and I sat in the gazebo until I heard the gatherers outside around 10:15 and then walked over. 😊 I worked away until noon hour and returned for lunch. I finished the asparagus soup with some cheddar on the side and know that my next batch needs to be strained better. It had a good taste but needs improvement.

Top picture is how I left it at noon
bottom shows how we left it at 4 pm

Bill had a wee headache and went upstairs for a snooze. I did half hour more on the corking until he came down. We’d planned to just hop in Black Beauty and go for a drive. Which way to go? A couple of bloggers mentioned Bouse and since it isn’t too far, we headed that way. Plomosa Rd to #72, right on Vicksburg Road and followed the roundabout onto #60W. It brought us back through Brenda and we returned home on I-10.

the drive to Bouse was very pretty
Even Gibbs enjoyed the scenery

Interesting story on this historic marker
I walked back to look at the swimming pool

I love how the mountains have the
initials on them
On the right hand roof of this Saloon, see the Saguaro growing
through the building?

An interesting spot to stop for some pictures

It was a very nice drive and we stopped in Bouse to get a few pictures of a few things.

We came home through Brenda
and this building caught my eye
I'd love a tour!

We were back home around 3 so I went back to the puzzle and worked with Adele and Robert until 4:15. It’s coming along nicely and should be done tomorrow after poker pool. For supper, we had rice, beans and barbecued sausages. It was good and was topped off with a piece of pie. Bill had cherry and I had pumpkin. 😊

Supper was good.

This was a great day, warming up to 73F/23C and even warmer for the days ahead. Yay!

Gibbs settled down nicely on the way home
Good night!

Thank you for the visit!


  1. The Bouse are is beautiful with lots of history. I too, took a picture of the Kofa Cafe. It just looks historic. The tales those walls could tell.

  2. What an interesting place to visit. A friend had an abandoned foundation on their property, repaired it and use it for a swimming pool as well.

    God bless.

  3. Looks like a great place for a quilt store!! LOL. I love reading about the history of places like that. Imagine ... a swimming pool!!

  4. The look on Gibbs' face waiting for his cheese is hilarious. What an interesting drive. A shame that the house was razed - I'm thinking it would have been a good place to explore.
    Enjoy that weather and send it my way - we're in for more snow!

  5. A very nice area, I hope you enjoyed the drive.


  6. Oh Gibbs has the cutest looks!! Looks like an awesome drive!
