Where are we today

           Saturday already, where does the time go? And its gonna be another wonderful day. After coffees and computing a bit I did a quick trip to the grocery store at 7:30 am to pick up a few things for supper tonight.
           Then we head back down to the London Bridge to take the Ferry across the lake to Havasu Landing Casino in California.. Not to go to the casino but just to take the 15 minute boat ride across the lake for 2 dollars each return. Cheaper than the lake cruises at $20 each.
        First thing I did was take a picture of these Lions. According to Anna of the Mutton Years, they are still around the financial district of London England. Thanks for the info Anna.
got our tickets here for the ferry
from 11 am they head over there on the hour
these people on paddle boards

We walked in and around
then back on the ferry to head back
Havasu City Arizona
cool board
nice beach on the channel
back to London Bridge
        Then we headed back home for lunch, were gonna check out the Museum but not open until 1 pm today. So a nice light snack and I headed back do to the beach check out the Sand, Water, Rv EXPO. Suzie was not interested so she relaxed at home.
       Lots of very cool dune buggies, sand rails, boats, atv's and toy hauler trailers. Which I enjoyed looking at for an hour or so and not too crowded, perfect !
one amazing machine!
read the spec below
962 horsepower used only 53 K
      Then the engines on some of these boats are amazing! Can't imagine going that fast on the water, and the fuel cost would be.......
2- 400 horse power outboards
fishing Kayak
this one 2 parachutes on the back !
very nice beach
     And saw a couple of very cool motorcycles as well.
        Back home I prepped supper for the 6 of us. And enjoyed a Happy hour while it was cooking.
George and his brother off for a tour
yup we are sharing stories
and a few laughs
           For supper I grilled a 5 lb pork loin roast and some sweet potatoes with apples and cinnamon on our Weber Q. For our Hosts George and Roseanne, and his brother Logan his wife that arrived today to visit. For the Sweet potato recipe click HERE or my recipe blog top right sidebar. When it was about ready Roseanne cooked up some corn and peas to go with it.
         Thanks guys for a wonderful camping spot and your great hospitality.
our Weber Q 100 sure does the trick
all is good
so very tasty
Was almost 6 pm when we done
so getting chilly a sweater needed.
Hey that's us!
          Another fun day here in Havasu City Arizona with more amazing weather, only got to 78f today, but mostly sunny , we will take it. Think we will head on down the road in the morning , maybe, a bit further south and more desert would be wonderful, we are craving it !
        Thanks for stopping on by, hope you enjoyed your day too.

Where have we been this Winter


  1. Looks like you had an exciting day in a warmer climate than we are in. Soon we'll be heading in the same direction for the warmth.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. No complaints here about the nice weather, will be cooling down soon though.

  2. Always fun to look at big engines, but man oh man, I sure wouldn't want to "feed" one of them. And who wants to go that fast on the water? Truly scary.

    1. You said it Bob, fuel cost and that fast on the water, with very scary.

  3. The ferry ride looks like a lot of fun. What a gorgeous day to take the ride.
    Boy did some people put some money into painting those boats. At least you would be able to see them on the water.

    1. It was a perfect day for all this fun. The money for the paint snd the engines, plus fuel costs makes it a very expensive hobby. They do look wonderful though.

  4. Just a heads up...I just read another blog where the people are in the Lake Havasu area. They went to the Lake Havasu Wildlife Preserve. It looks beautiful. Just in case you are looking for something else to do.

    1. Thanks for the tip, maybe another time, the desert is calling us...

  5. Didn't know they had a copy of our lighthouse at Lake Havasu.

    1. I guess its fairly new, there is quite a few all around the shores here.

  6. We rode the boat out to the casino and then turned around and rode it right back. The casino wasn't worth staying at anyway. Enjoy !

    1. That's what we thought too, but the boat ride was nice.

  7. I grew up in Lake Havasu. I lived there from 1967 (5 yrs old) until 1980 (18 years old). It sure was a fun place to grow up. Your pictures bring back a lot of memories.

  8. The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys. Dinner looks awesome. Great picture of you two.

    1. Thanks Peter it was very tasty.
      Guess I am still a boy, too pricey for me.

  9. A fun day on the water and a fun time looking at all of those cool toys.

  10. It is so nice to see that you are enjoying Lake Havasu City, AZ! I enjoy being there, when I visit my cousin who lives there. Enjoy! Blessings, Lynn
