Enjoying our time here and the weather amazing!

Where are we today ?

       What a wonderful warm night, windows open, fantastic fan on, blowing out so we got a nice breeze coming in through the bedroom windows, no comforter needed.
      As usual up early enjoying this warm weather but no exciting sunrise here like in the desert, So quick trip to Parker for some groceries and home by 8:30.
sunrise across the Colorado River
looking north down he beach
south by the cove
         Just puttered around , chatted with our neighbours from Alliston Ontario and enjoyed a light tasty lunch.
        Right after lunch I did a short drive down the road about a mile and checked out the BLM area there on the river. Very nice sites, on the river  dry camping and only $5.00 a night. The sites are no bigger than what we had here for 10 bucks a night with our membership. Always nice to check out alternatives though when we are in the area.
this where we are
       Now another walkabout just checking out more of this huge campground. Lots of neat things to see. it is a very well maintained large campground.
    Then a very interesting mini golf course, looks like fun.
        Gotta check out the clubhouse as well always lots going on here, bingos, meals, card rooms, pool hall, whatever you need.
oh yeah puzzles for Patsy on the go too
even the Country star is well stocked
friendly staff as well
       Now we are enjoying another wonderful warm afternoon in the shade of the palm trees getting in to our page turners. Not bad at all only 88f with a slight breeze and the shade very comfortable.
a very nice view of the river
Volleyball in one pool
this pool nice for relaxing and playing tabletennis
        But a problem we have here with being close to the Tiki Bar is we can smell the food cooking all afternoon, Darn we got a craving. Do we go for a pitcher of beer for4 bucks or stay here? So for our Happy Hour here (we have beer) I wandered over for a snack. Breaded cauliflower, sounds almost health except they are breaded and deep fried. but heck was a very tasty snack,
breaded cauliflower 
       That craving was taken care of and a bit later time to begin supper. Tonight a very real treat. I  came across some awesome looking fillet mignon steaks at Safeway this morning 1/2 price so that is on the menu with a baked potato, mushrooms and onions plus some fresh asparagus also on sale only $1.99.
almost ready, extra potato for later .
homefried potatoes at some point
what a feast, steaks done about medium
I like mine rare but still amazingly fork tender
         By the time we finished supper we missed the sunset, No way I was leaving my meal looking for one, We have lots of sunset pictures anyway .
         Just another great day here enjoying the full hookup facilities, Might get to the pool yet when not so busy looks like the mornings are best for me to go, we will see. Finishing up this posting still outside at 8 pm and still a comfortable 64F soon time to head inside though for the night.
       Thanks for taking the time to stop by, we will see what we can come up with in the next few days. Maybe something, maybe not , tomorrow is another day.

  4. Excellent day. The snack looked interesting. I'm not sure if that's legal, breading cauliflower. Hahaha...

    Enjoy your time there...

    1. Thanks Deb it was a nice day, The cauliflower was a tasty treat, maybe legal but sure not too healthy. A nice change of pace here from the desert.

  5. Looks like a very nice campground with plenty to do and the price is hard to beat - having memberships is serving you well. Your supper looks outstanding.

  6. My goodness, you had my mouth watering with that picture of your dinner. Looking at that nice campground by the river, happy hour by the pool and reading books in the shade while we had new snowfalls one after another and more to come. Wish we were there, too!

  8. thank you for indicating the park name. We've certainly heard of Emerald Cove from Lake Havasu campers talking about it but now we have first hand knowledge. :)
    It looks lovely and will definitely go on our list. You know I'd love the beach and the pool.
    Keep on enjoying it, you have a beautiful view.

    1. The teak perfect a nice treat. The potatoes about an hour until fork tender, Steak maybe 10 minutes until 145f eternal temp, lest rest covered with foil about 5 minutes. Yummy.

  10. The fillet mignon looked great. I have stayed on that strip closer to the Parker Dam, with a lot of wild burrows. Any in your campground.

    1. It was wonderful thanks Peter. Have not seen any burrows here yet, but there is signs on the highway to watch for them.

  11. Looks you might be on the same site we had last year! Great spot, view of the river and close to the pools and Tiki Hut. There is some free BLM land further down from Emerald Cove. Lots of free boondocking down that way too.

    1. It is a nice spot , the BLM next door is Full tight now. and yes lots of other free places to stay as well.

  12. Well, if you have to give up the wide open spaces of the desert and "suffer" through full hook-ups that looks like a pretty nice place to do so. What a beautiful place on the Colorado River not to mention almost next door to a TiKi Bar. Enjoy! I am pretty sure deep fried cauliflower is mostly healthy...lol
