Today more of this amazing weather. Out and about for a nice walkabout the park at 7:30 as the sun rose over the river. Then back home we decided to take a drive up to the Parker Dam enjoying the scenery along the way .
|34.7 miles today|
|approaching the Dam|
|looking down river from the dam|
|now to drive slowly across the dam|
From here our plan was to stop by the Bluewater Casino and see some of the boats for the Drag races here this weekend. The Drag Boat Races at Blue Water Casino in Parker Arizona. We could hear them roaring up the river and drove around and down the boat launch ramp.
Here we got lucky just by chance. We can get a first hand look at these amazing boats as they are being launched and heading to the starting line not far from us.
|one of many beautiful boats|
|the gas ones move to the starting line under their own power usually,|
the Highpower fuel dragsters get towed.
|the roar of their thousands of horsepower is amazing|
Gonna watch this one looks like it could be amazing. And was!
|keeping an eye on this guy a fuel dragster|
|getting ready to launch|
|wow! the roar and take off was amazing|

less the 5 seconds and done
over 200 mph in 1,000 feet.
|another roar and shaking the ground ,. awesome|
|in a few seconds they are gone|
|2 more , amazing|
|this tiny boat just flew down the strip|
|really get to see them here before they go in the water|
From here a quick stop at Walmart and Beals outlet for Suzie to check things out nothing she saw ( a very quick in and out shopper) and back home by 11 am.
Just in time for a light lunch then I can get a few walkabouts this afternoon before it it gets to warm.
|nice beach on the north side of the park too|
|love the quiet pool here|
|relaxing by the pool she is|
|these are small?|
melting quickly in this warm weather
|a few dogs relaxing by the pool in the shade|
|this was another wonderful meal we had here and a great price as well.|
|we got here early before the clubhouse gets too busy|
Now just enjoying more of this weather here outside at 7:30pm and still 70 F (21C) no complaints here thats for sure. We can still enjoy the songs right here from our site as long as we are outside. We have the perfect campsite here in this park.
Hope y'all had a great day and want to thank you for dropping on by again. Life is good every day when we are upright and breathing.
