SNOW?? We like this type of Arizona snow!

Where are we today ?
         Whadda we doing today? Not a heck of a lot, because we don't have to. 
         Walkabouts, putter around with a few things. Removed our house batteries, cleaned them up a topped up with distilled water. Took only one cup of water for the two 6 volt Trojans after 6 months.They are holding out really well.
         Gonna be here for two weeks altogether, and have been here many, many times before. Looks like March break is still going on in this area, from the number of children in the campground and by the pool. Think we can avoid that until next week.
         Early morning walkabouts is so nice and peaceful. Spotted this Cardinal, so nice to see and managed to get a couple pics.
snow?
      The lower campground has a lot of trees and think they are cottonwood trees. They are "snowing" all over the campground. We can handle this type of early morning snow when it is over 70f.
snow? 
      Enjoyed my walkabouts checking out a few things in this park.
Gold Mine?
hiking trail
this camping area is closed, sewer problems,
we usually camped here
cool looking building
          Now by the pool a few people hanging out enjoying the warm pool and spa, lots of young children on the sidelines. We wait till they go away before enjoying the pool.
a few fishing in the pond
so peaceful here
cactus blooming
desert landscaping?
lots of these little guys everywhere
        A short "happy hour" and fired up our Weber Q to grill a cornish hen and an Egg Plant a friendly neighbor gave us, he also gave us a 1/2 dozen fresh tomatoes as well.
         We have never had Egg Plant before and neither one of us were fussy on it. Grilled with olive oil, garlic and herb spices, just did not turn our crank. So at least we have tried it. Still the hen and tomato was excellent, I baked Suzie a potato that she enjoyed.
        After supper did manage to catch another wonderful Arizona sunset, sure gonna miss these when we leave.
       Now that was a day we both really enjoyed, relaxing in the shade, putter around, read our books and chat with neighbors. Perfect! We have a couple other things we may do before we leave the area but that will happen when the spirit moves us.
       Thanks for relaxing with us again, it was fun.

  1. We're not eggplant people either. We'll let you cook all of those you want and not be tempted by your pictures of them. Spring break and all the kids in the campground is a lot like summer. That's not really a bad thing. Sometimes your adult neighbors are more rowdy than the little ones.

    1. How right you are about the kids, it was actually their parents that were annoying. No more egg plant for us, been there done that.

  2. I agree that the snow falling in your desert area is most acceptable.

  3. With all those cottonwoods you might want to just double check your air conditioner before you leave to make sure it hasn't been clogged. When we leave our son's driveway in Montana we always have to clean out the cotton. You can keep the eggplant. Not very high on my list of good foods. Love the cardinals.

  4. Okay, I will agree to disagree. Not everyone is 'cotton' (ha ha) to eggplant but I for one love it fried and will now try it on the Q as well. I'm sure it will be delicious too. :) Trade you snow, George! We didn't get anything overnight but my sister is in Hanover and got 8" overnight!!! I guess they won't be visiting today after all. LOL The park you are in looks gorgeous, the pool and the pond. We'll keep that one on our list.

    1. I guess thats why there is so many different foods for different palates.
      We will deal with this snow, hope you get rid of that snow before we get back.
      It is a nice campground.

  5. I can handle the snow easier than the cottonwoods... allergies go crazy during this time. Eggplant is one of my favorites... fixed about any way. BUT... just have to let you know that I bought some asparagus (fresh and lovely) at H.E.B. yesterday for $3.98.... your asparagus made me drool all the time we were in Costa Rica, where the same amount, but not nearly as fresh, would have cost about $10.00.

    1. Now you are getting your asparagus fix, enjoy, only $1.50 a lb here lately.
      The cottonwoods do affect my allergies too, glad we are not in that area of the lower campground.

  6. Not overly keen on eggplant. I've had it as a "filler" in Lasagna and it was fine, but by itself I have a texture issue. But hey, you gave it a try.

    1. Maybe as a filler, but think I will pass, will try about anything once.

  7. Here in Mississippi they serve eggplant deep fried. Actually they serve almost everything deep fried.

    1. Yes everything deep fried in the Mississippi is usually pretty good, but no crazy on the flavor of eggplant now.

  8. That's the kind of snow I like.

    Fried eggplant is yummy. Nice and crisp and great texture.

  10. Good for you for trying something different. We do like it from time to time. Great shots of the park. That was our home park when we still belonged to Western Horizons.

  11. Nice campground! Not a big fan of Eggplant - tried it once and that was enough.

  12. I can see why they are called cottonwoods and it does look like snow in your shots.

    1. Much nicer then snow, but does affect some allergies.

  13. How pretty ... don't recall ever seeing cottonwoods do their thing.... food looks good.. I like eggplant parmesan if prepared well... eggplant can be rubbery by books like me...

    I am finally going check out that grill you and Rick carry on about... looks easy peasy to cook and clean on/with
