     Another very warm night for sleeping windows open, less blankets and was very comfortable. After the coffees, breaky and computing this morning really nice to get a walkabout enjoying this area and another nice sunrise. This was about 6:30 this morning down by the Hot Springs.
Even early morning the Hot Springs are getting busy with a bunch
of friendly people enjoying this area
     I love to check out this lagoon here really reminds me of an Oasis in the desert.
overflow from the hot springs
       Back home I puttered around for a cut checked out our Mr Heater, and having an issue with it, Cleaned it the other day and does not want to stay lit. Hmmmm, will check this out tomorrow when we have more time, don't really need it much with this very warm weather anyway.
        Then at 8:30 we headed down to the meeting place for the FREE Casino shuttle. Needed up 35 people from this LTVA boarded the bus. And now nonstop to the Casino.
a few of us from this corner
getting everyone ready to board
A very nice Highway coach with blinds, air-conditioning and a washroom
nice FREE bus ride 6o miles to the casino
a nice coach 
     Ewe were thinking of going there anyway for the Prime Rib dinner deal, but heck a free bus ride! we enjoyed the scenery, saved money on fuel and got to enjoy our books for an hour each way. Ok Did look up a few times to see new sights.
lots of crops growing here as well
huge solar farms as far as you can see,
making good use if the desert
passed a few ghost towns always makes me think
 back of what it was like back then.
 
lots of wind turbines as well
       Before we knew it at the Casino 80 minute drive that flew on by chatting with a few people and enjoying our e-readers,  This bus trip to the Golden Acorn Casino in Campo California  was sure an awesome deal ! And a fun day.  
here we are 10:10 am
        Now because we took the bus and have new players cards we each got $30.00 of free slot Play. Really that is a great deal! Well we played the slots and were doing well, then stopped to meet some of our friends for lunch.
Suzie had more luck than me but we were having fun
        The 7 of us met at the restaurant for lunch 11;45 we ordered off the menu but I was here and a few others for The Prime Rib Special $7.77 now that was an awesome deal! And I Had a craving for that for a while but did not want to spend $50.00 on a roast, on sale! Just for me.
our happy group here, LR, Suzie, Judy, Janis, Aline,  Barb, Alvin
and ME the empty chair
     Suzie had Fish and chips that came with a salad we shared
just right for the 2 of us
very tasty fish n chips that she enjoyed 
My prime rib excellent a bit more done than I like but still very tender
for the price no complaints
     After lunch we did a walkabout outside in the sun, Casinos are known to be cooler and here at over 4,000 feet elevation is cooler weather but the bight sunny skies and fresh air for a few minutes was wonderful.
these shrubs all around,
do you know what they are with the red berries?
think I used to years ago, hmm...
      Back inside we still plying the penny slots and having a ball we have never played so long on the slots with their free money. We were both up and down. I cashed in $15.00 and at one point Suzie was up $48.93 but we still had 2 hours before the bus left and she was having a ball. Go for it it is free money and fun entertainment .
she was having good luck here and it
was all with their free money anyway
      It was a different day us but also a fun time, Free Bus ride, $60.00 free slot play between us (actually Suzie go and extra $5.00). I cash in my winnings so we pretty well had a free lunch relaxing drive, fun with friends and even a couple of hours enjoying our e-readers.
       Now back here at 4:10 pm we all get together for Happy hour.The weather perfect just cooling down slightly in the shade.
Hang on Judy, Cody is a wild ride!
    What a great group we had here today for Happy hour according to Don (red shirt at the front) the largest group yet, So I got a few shots, just because I could and again as usual I am not in them but heck can't have everything on the spur of the moment.
almost everybody , but Patsy Hiding behind the Umbrella
thanks for ducking down Patsy ,now we gotcha
     Soon it was cooling down, bare eegs and arms getting chilly so time to call in a night and head in inside.
Cody and the Puppies getting treats
     What a fun day we had pour of the moment thing. Sometimes these are the beast times. Fun with friends, casino time a great meal and a very warm sunny day.
      Thanks for taking the time to check us out and like I say hope y;all had a great day as well.

  2. The Golden Acorn. It's our stop going east and often west - clean restrooms, free soft drinks and coffee. Food is pretty good too. We've also taken advantage of their free over-night parking, aka Casino Camping. I usually put $1 in a dollar slot to pay for the facilities.
