     A windy day passing by the Imperial Sand Dunes we having sand drifts across the interstate.
       We left at 10:20 am and arrived at the Hot Spring in Holtville at 10:50 sixty miles down the road, pretty good eh, but gained an hour with the time zones.
         Now here we set up near our friends, very hot and sunny. Awning out next to no wind gotta love it. The reason we are here was to check out the Carrot Festival and Parade tomorrow. But we find out after the Parade over to the Ranch for an afternoon party, bring a dish. Ok we have been there a couple times before and sounds like fun.
        So a quick trip to town for supplies and back home to enjoy reading in the shade for a while.
fields of carrots being irrigated
        Now you know its warm out when Suzie is in shorts!
       Being it was so nice I had to whip over to the Hotspring for a refreshing dip and warm soak, oh so nice.
love the hot spring here
        They the always have Happy Hour at 3:30, get together socialize a bit and light snacks, Meet some old friends and sometimes new friends.
Doggies get treats too
for Happy Hour
         Things were discussed and was decided that 6 or us would go to Barbara Worth Resort and Country club in town for the friday night chicken wing deal again. $5.00 for a bucket of 20 excellent wings (celery, carrots and dip included) and $2.00 beers or margaritas. $2.00 for a large french fry too. The 2 of us had a feast could barely finish for $13.00 including 3 beers too.
We had fun again
And of course a wonderful desert sunset
        Thanks for stopping by, we had a wonderful day hope you did too.

Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this Fall and Winter..


  1. Ah so that's how the dates im eating look on the tree.

  2. I remember how sweet and soft those dates are when bought right where they grow.. delicious!

  3. Wow! That's a good feed for $13.00. Enjoy the sun!

    1. Hard to turn down a meal deal like that, we love wings too.
      Love the sunny blue skies as well.

  4. I'm always amazed at what can be grown in the dessert with a little water. Sounds like a super deal on wings and drinks.

    1. The desert crops here in the winter are a sight to see.

  5. Back in time for the Carrot Festival! Wish we could go, will have to enjoy it thru your blog.

    1. We are looking forward to it thanks for joining us.

  6. Hey! I love the Cocopah Water tower! Especially the name, thank you George. This Holtville Hot Spring is on my list of places to visit. I love the idea of a hot spring dip. :)

    1. So many places to see and things to do, you can't do it all at once, take your time and enjoy it.

  7. You definitely are having yet another great winter ( last year was the exception ). I would love to get one of those $2.00 margaritas.

    1. Yep its all good so far this year, Tom had 2 of them said they were excellent.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
