The picture below was from yesterday’s Palm Canyon hike, the desert is noticeably greener these days. Many ocotillo are blooming, I’m hoping it will be a colorful year for desert flowers.
Today was a shopping day. Janna and Mike mentioned visiting the market in Yuma, plus a Sam’s Club stop. A lunch at Famous Dave’s was also on the agenda.
Janna and Mike were not terribly impressed with the market. I think they expected more antiques, but this was row after row of little shops featuring all sorts of merchandise, everything from tools to dog sunglasses!
We looked for awhile and then headed off to Sam’s Club to pick up the things we needed from there. Famous Dave’s was next, with a quick stop at Dairy Queen for small ice creams. The guys managed a fast run through the Harbor Freight store as well.
Then it was getting to be time to start back to our desert homes. As we pulled up the road, I noticed a motorhome parked – TOO CLOSE to us!! It slipped out of my mouth before I could stop it, “Oh NO!!!” Everyone else thought something really bad had happened, like our coach had been broken into or something. No, nothing like that. Just – neighbors! I’m taking a lot of teasing about how territorial I’ve become. Yikes. One of these days I know we’ll be heading out of this beautiful, peaceful, quiet, remote place and pulling into an RV Park, squeezed in between a bunch of other RV’s. Now, that’s a scary thought!
