             Wow a wonder full nights sleep we had. Nice and cool and so quiet. Mind you most of my nights are quiet when I take my hearing aides out LOL....
           Got a short nice early morning walkabout done at 6:30, but was still kinda chilly in my shorts. 49f,  So shortly after 8am  I whipped to the grocery store for some milk and veggies. Then shortly after 9 am Suzie ready to explore the area with me for a while.
         First the we gonna check out the London bridge that is famous for being moved here from London England in 1968.. click HERE mind you there is a lot more info on line just Google it .
visit the tourist center
me having fun
lots of light house  replicas around the island
     A very nice walkaway along the canal here, would be very busy here in the summer, pretty peaceful today. Just the way we like it.
lots of wonderful candles , made right here
Suzie almost bought one,
maybe tomorrow
accuse candes, wonderful
the London Bridge from a distance
a wonderful walkway
        Then we drove around the island and over the bridge, what a great experience it was.
this is it
         Now its close to noon, we have seen enough, head back home. Stopped by this .99 cent store on the way. Never seen one like this, amazing deals , fresh and frozen foods , think we will go back before we leave here,
      After a light lunch I did a nice walkabout the neighborhood. Good exercise and enjoyed these amassing Arizona style homes.
rv parking here
View over the lake from here
George and Roseane's driveway
         About 3:30 we got together for "Happy hour"  solve all the worlds problems,  caught up with each others day and had a fun tine.
yup we had fun

       Home to whip up supper as the sun was setting. Grill a couple  boneless, skinless chicken breasts on our grill mat added our salad, sure hit the spot.
   That was it for a great day here  checking things out and spending time with good friends,
   Thanks for stopping by.

  1. My grandfather walked across London Bridge many times when it was in London. Don't think he walked it in Arizona... ;c)

  2. Hard to believe the guy moved the bridge all that way, but it seems to have had the desired effect.

    1. It sure did turn out pretty good at a total cost of only 5.1 million dollars.

  4. First time I saw London Bridge in AZ was in 1996, In 1997 both od us went back there and since then several more visits have taken place. However, last time we were there we found that the little English Village at the bridge had fallen into disrepair and many of the little stores were closed up. In 1997 we were tenting along the lake and enjoying an hour-long swim in the lake. But that campground was gone when we returned years later.

    1. There was only a few shops here, but still pretty nice. Lots of campgrounds on the island and a few beaches. We first saw the Bridge in 2007 just a quick drive over, now we will check out the area a bit more.

  5. That was a good day spent visiting the sites in Lake Havasu. London Bridge is kind of interesting & so is the lake. Enjoy.

  6. another bucket list item for us. How cool that the bridge was moved, boggles the mind. Looks like a nice place, I like the idea of the .99 store!

    1. It is worth the time checking out the area and the .99 store pretty good too.

  7. I have to laugh because when they first bought London Bridge they actually thought London Bridge was the famous Tower Bridge in London so they were a little disappointed when it arrived but I guess it is still an attraction to many people. Glad you had a great day.

    1. According to the info we got there in the pamphlet, it says and I quote " Contrary to popular belief Robert McCulloch was not under the impression he was purchasing the tower bridge" The video on how they moved and rebuilt it is mind boggiling.

  8. Lake Havasu is a very pretty area. We enjoyed the two days we spent there. The making of the lake is a very interesting story.
    I used to collect candles and had some really cool and unusual ones. Some people are just so dang creative.

      Suzie used to collect candles as well, but not so practical in the motorhome.

  11. I'd have to look back to see when we were there.... but my memorable experience was being on a boat in the river and the ranger arresting a fellow who landed his ultra-light airplane on an island (Illegally) while we passengers were still in the boat. Wish I'd walked on it in London, but.... alas... no
