Warm sunny Saturday and the soup and chowder festival.

Where are we today

      Today is another excellent desert day. I can;t say how much we love this scenery and weather.
      At noon today we went to the soup and chowder festival  at the QIA (Quartzsite Improvement association) because we  have never been here at this time before. And I am telling you what a great event. $5.00 per person and we got to sample as well as  judge 15 different soups and chowders, plus all the deserts and juices as well.
the QIA
          We parked beside this cool Motorcycle/car, a Slingshot, what a neat ride this would be. We have seen quite a few of these over the years in the southwest mostly.
like  a care with 3 wheels
             We purchased our tickets and got in line, not to0 bad in about 15 minutes we and got our samples I did one line and Suzie did he other so we did not have to do  itagain for the second round.
we passed some of deserts on the way in
the line moved quickly 
more deserts
we had 15 different soups and chowders to taste EACH
and really had our fill
most were very good
a really good crowd here
       For desert (that we don't usually do)  we both choose the Black Forest cake (with Brandy) and it was amazing !
very tasty desert
       Back home shortly after 1 pm and relaxed for a while enjoying our e-readers in the shade. Sun shade up and was 75 f with no wind on our site, perfect weather !
      A bit later Bill had his drone out and showed me and Gerry how it works, what an amazing toy. I controlled it for a bit, too much fun. Not in our budget though He took some pics that he sent me , I will post some tomorrow.
      From the picture I posted the other day got a comment from a fellow x blogger that saw their coach in the over head drone photo. So I wandered over to meet them and really was so nice to meet up with them, Bloggers I used to follow quite a few years ago.
Bills drone checking us out
       Then we enjoyed a fun (Happy ) social hour with Bill, Patsy, Melinda, Gerry and Barbara. And while we were there Brian stopped by to talk to them about solar. He will be back tomorrow to give them some ideas and quotes, VERY reasonable he is.He worked at discount solar for years and actually installed our system 10 years ago.
time for supper and another
amazing desert sunset
      Tonight a couple pan fried cod fillets on our Weber Q 100 with fish crisp, Suzie's favourite.
a salad, grilled lemon and the fish
          How can a Saturday get much better than that?
          Glad that y'all stopped in for a peek.

Where have we been this Winter


  1. That sounds like an event I would really enjoy and you fish looks delicious.

    1. Thanks Larry the samples were interesting, I was actually thinking that hey That Big Dude would enjoy this.

  2. Wow...15 samples is a lot of samples and they look huge. What a fun way to spend a few hours.

    1. It was a lot of samples and filling as well, pretty good deal and yes it was fun.

  3. That would have been so much fun to visit. I love the little festivals ... especially when there's food!

    1. It was fun and this time of year in Quartzsite, perfect no large crowds.

  4. It was indeed a perfect day........wish I was more of a sun lover! hahaha

  5. That's the type of day I would have preferred to have.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  6. That's about as perfect a day as we're going to get, with some great soup thrown in. I'm loving this weather, a perfect week ahead, too, I think. I enjoyed our visit yesterday! :)

    1. You are right and many more perfect days to come as well.

  7. We enjoyed a similar thing last year in San Miguel. It was a chilli cook off and the food was great. Those desserts look tasty too. We are vicariously enjoying the desert with you. Cheers from Vancouver where there is more snow in the froecast...

    1. A chili cookout is fun too glad you enjoyed it.
      Nice that you got the sunset as well, too bad about the snow stuff.

  8. Wow, that was a well spent 10 bucks! :c)

  9. I took a picture of that same sunset. We are in La Posa South LTVA. We started following your travels before we went full-time. You have been an inspiration for us. We put solar on our trailer and are sitting here in the desert on our computers like we were hooked up to electricity. Thanks for sharing your life as full-time RVers. Russ

  10. Beautiful picture of the sunset. Sounds like a fun day.


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