Pilot Knob RV Resort
This morning, Tuesday, Oct. 31st, we were up shortly after 6. It was a good, quiet but warm night’s sleep. I should have left my window open as I had to kick the covers off a few times. It was a very mild 57F/14C overnight. This park has certainly changed, there are only about 27 rv’s in here right now. They have made numberous improvements as Gibbs and I noticed on our walk arount the perimeter. Things can change with the upcoming November and beyond guests but I wonder how much it will?
|Caught the sunrise just as I came out of the shower.|
|And just a few minutes later, we were walking|
into Los Algodones, Mexico. I had to stop taking
pictures for a while, not allowed at the border.
We had our morning drinks together plus some breakfast before having our showers. It wasn't long after that we were giving Gibbs his ‘look after the house’ treat. It was 10 when we left for Mexico. Our appointments weren’t until 1 pm at the dentist but Bill thought we’d get there early enough to get our/his eyes checked and new glasses ordered. We didn’t want to have to go back. 😊
|Waiting for Bill at OK Vision. Each time now, it seems|
we go to a new place. As long as they're friendly, we're good.
Bill's progressive, transition lenses were $180. Pretty good price
and ready in 2 hours.
A trip in to Los Algodones doesn’t need to include a meal and a drink for us when we’re on our own, so we like to try and get things done in one visit – if possible. There were changes upon entry into the parking area, still $6 though, and it was getting busy already. It was a beautiful, windy morning so we wore shorts and light tops. Bill got his eyes tested, he thought there was a change and he was right. He ordered new lenses for his frames and we left to do some shopping.
|You'll have to wait and see the stained glass|
but this is the metal frame work we both agreed on.
It should look good at the Ridge!
We found a stained glass window for the Suite’s door plus we found some metal art work for the Ridge gate. Andy, our favourite greeter, helped us find the right vendor for the latter. It wa s wrapped up tightly and since it was still early, we went to the yellow food court for a sit down. I needed a cold drink so we each had a lemonade. No margaritas before a dental appointment, not for us. 😊
|We had a sit down and bathroom break|
at this yellow cafe/eatery. Never can remember
the name of it.
|We turn our sign (forefront) to say NO salesmen|
and we don't get bothered while we have our drink.
|Just lemonade today for these|
It was refreshing, cold and wet!
The dentist was almost 2 hours delayed so it was 3:15 when we walked out with a clean checkup. While waiting, Bill nipped back to collect his ‘new’ glasses. Two hours, done and done! ♥ Lastly, a stop at the Purple Pharmacy and Liquor store for my pills ($8/50 compared to $10 last spring), a bottle of Appleton’s rum and 2 bottles of pure vanilla. We were tired and we had a pooch waiting back at the park for us.
|Then we waited in Dr. Eva's cheery courtyard|
|Our medicinal purchases|
I have enough of my shingles meds now
to last me over a year. It works like a charm as
I haven't had a breakout since January 2023.
For .16¢ a pill, I'm a happy camper!
He was good and very happy to see us. It was quite comfortable with windows open in the Suite, which is good. It reached a high 81F/27C today. For supper, we’ll have leftover chicken and salad with little pies for dessert. Yum, they were so cheap at Fry’s, I had to buy 4. I noticed last night that some of my programs I was getting back home and in Indiana have disappeared. Put on hold? I’ll have to find others to watch. Hmmm.
with some chicken left for sandwiches
The carcass is cleaned off.
|A sweet little cherry pie for each of us.|
|After tonight, I'll have to walk further to get|
the sunset on camera.
|But the trade off is that we'll be at our new HOME|
for 5 months. ♥ Yay!
Thank you for the visit today.
