This is the perfect weather we are here for, sunshine, warm temps, clear blue skies and no wind.

Where are we today

         Now this is the desert weather we love.  Cool nights warm sunny days, clear blue skies and so much space. Early morning coffees from our stove top perk that we use when boon docking, makes the best coffee! Then a walkabout for a mile or so as the sun comes up around 7 am.
hey that's my shadow following me

and tea pot on the right
     About 8:30 into town 5 minutes away and stopped into the Quartzsite General store. They have a butcher there and some wonderful smoked pork chops that we just love. I snagged 2 chops and the woman behind me bought all the rest. Sure glad I was there early.

      Then down the street to check out the Roadrunner market. They have a different selection of food and some wonderful fresh fruits and veggies.

the owner came out hopped in turned the key
and drove away purred like a kitten
          Now home to read for a while, putter around enjoying this perfect weather. The temperature here on the north side of the coach 64F, on the south side 80f and both taken in the shade. We opened our awning and set up the sunscreen was wonderful. But we have learned over the years we do not open the awning unless we are here and under it, never know when a huge gust of wind will decide to zip on by.
yup its is nice and so peaceful
       Shortly after 3 pm we whipped on over to visit good friends of ours John and Barb from Ontario, we saw them last summer at Galvin Bay Resort near Buckhorn Ont.

We stopped by for Happy Hour and
to catch up with them
         Back home by 5 pm fired up our Weber Q to grill a couple of these tasty smoked pork chops to add to our Salad.
5:30 dusk is here but still
 enough light to cook
about 4 minutes a side
perfect
chops, salad and cantaloupe
           Thanks for stopping by and joining us today. Hope yours was a great one too. Sure beats being back in Ontario as the cold weather is starting to settle in.

    1. Relaxing is what this lifestyle is all about, along with lots fresh air and exercise.
      We get to cold nights here but warms up nicely when the sunrises.

  4. Amazing that old car ran. We have a few in the UK and generally they look spotless being well cared for hobby cars.

    1. Have seen lots of spotless ones around but this old car just lives in the desert, and the sun takes it's toll on the paint.

  5. Cars from the twenties usually don't purr like a cat, so this guy must have put a modern engine into it.

    1. It was smooth running, not real quiet.
      Did not see under the hood, but sure sounded nice, not like a modern engine.

  6. Looks like the old car is due a paint job before it rusts away

  8. Such a small world and I'm lovin' every minute of it! Meeting Oscar and his family from Ontario made us chuckle but then when they started talking about you two, we outright had to laugh at the coincidence. It makes for a great Thanksgiving too!
