Where are we today ?
Another sunny warm day and we are on a mission first thing this morning. Heading in to Holtville at the Barbara Worth Resort and Country Club for the 29th annual Snowbirds Breakfast. We hitched a ride with Oscar and Judy at 8:15 am. This is a free pancake and Ham breakfast including coffee and orange juice. Lots of draws for free prizes and social time with hundreds of snowbirds here, I think mostly from Canada. This is sponsored by the El Centro Chamber of Commerce in appreciation to everyone wintering in the Imperial Valley and supporting the local economy.
|the lines move quickly|
|lotsa cooking going on and everyone |
is happy and friendly
|then we wandered about, chatted with a few people|
and got cards stamped from various vendors
for a draw on a $100. gift certificate at Walmart
Full tummies after breaky, we read in the shade as it's still pretty warm but thats why we are here. Puttered around a bit and a couple walkabouts. Had our daily visitor stop by for a visit with Suzie, think she will miss us when we leave tomorrow, Suzie miss her too.

The " Eldorado Ranch" is owned by a local family in town that like to have celebrations. So they invite lots of people, cook up a mess of meat, rice, beans and tortillas, supply the place and entertainment. This celebration is for Enrique's 67 birthday party. We brought a dish (macaroni salad I made yesterday, Sorry Lea its all gone) and our own beverages. A hand written sign was posted on the BLM bulletin board inviting everyone to attend.
I took many pictures but narrowed it to a few, still too many but you get the idea. It was an experience like no other. Very special that we were able to attend. Mexican Music some Mexican and American food. We were greeted and made very welcome by the host and hostess.
Wandered around listened to the music and singing, enjoyed the sites and conversation. Then time to enjoy the food, so many tasty dishes, and deserts it was awesome!
The hospitality was overwhelming.

A special thanks to our friends here at the Hotsprings, most from Northern Ontario. And keeping us informed of all these fun, free things to do here. Will most likely see them in Quarztsite too, along with a few other people we know.
Thanks for the visit and hope you had a wonderful Saturday too. In the morning we secure our rig and travel through the Sand Dunes to the Q.
