Arizona marketplace and visiting fellow Rv friends.

Where are we today ?
        Sunshine again and more great weather. Today we have a plan to head out to Arizona Marketplace a huge fleamarket that we love to go to when in the area. Today is a perfect day to browse, not too busy and not many crowds.
        Left here about 9:30 this morning so as not to rush at the market. Wander about for a few hours here. Lots of neat things to check out and real great prices if you take the time to check. And we did. Not much we needed but did find a few cheap things to buy. A tiny window thermometer we have been looking for and a new pair of Dawg sandals that Suzie likes for a good price.
In the food court a nice country band playing
nice fresh produce at very good prices too
      Now its noon and time for something different for a bite to eat.
tasty chilly/cheese fries to share
one fish taco each hit the spot,
nice light lunch
      Then down the road to visit with our friends, Mike and Wendy from Alberta Canada. Have not seen them for two years. We first met them in Rock Port Texas in 2006 and almost every year since then in our travels. So nice to catch up with them such a super couple. They had invited us over for Happy Hour a couple hours before their friends and relatives showed up, just so we could catchup!
Mike and Wendy
        They got themselves a wonderful new 40 ft 5th wheel trailer this year, and mainly stay in Yuma Arizona for the winter and Alberta Canada in the summer months. They have a really nice site, all set up and comfortable for them. Not our style, but suits them perfectly.
nice site, nice patio
Nice doggy fix for Suzie
Lotsa friends for Happy Hour
very tasty snacks too
       Thanks, Mike and Wendy for the great get together, tasty snacks and meeting some of your family and friends. we had an awesome visit.
      Not wanting to wear our our welcome headed back home before it got too late.
      Just relax for a bit in the sunshine and read while our Weber Q heated up to grill a couple chicken breasts. I tenderized and marinated, grilled for a few short minutes and enjoyed a grilled chicken breast sandwich and tossed salad for a light supper.
quick and easy
sure hit the spot
       That was another fun day, exploring and visiting here in southern Arizona, Our day was awesome hope yours was too.
        Thanks for stopping by and making a comment, or just reading our about our fun day.

    1. We spent last winter in that area and never get real warm. Here we have warm very sunny days and cold nights, but that works great for us.
