Mon. Feb. 27th, A very windy day!

Thanks for joining us on our journey of North America
 in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006

Where are we today ?
the resort
        Well we took advantage of yesterdays weather and enjoyed many hours of happiness with our friends here yesterday afternoon and last night. Good thing we did even thou we had a great sleep and the day was very bright, sunny and warm  85f (30c) the winds today were blowing us away. 20 mph (32 kph) winds with guts to 50 mph (80 kph). Trying a walkabout was very difficult but did get a bit done. Chatted with a few other people around the resort, nice to see some old familiar faces, not too many out today thou.
        I checked out the local area around the resort to see if anything new, just some desert flowers and greenery appearing, soon to be gone by the intense summer heat. Even the Rooster Cocburn Ostrich Ranch next door was closed due to high winds. Then we just puttered around did some more research on the net and found a place in Tucson that could checkout our propane system, it needs to be looked at. Will stop there Tuesday morning (tomorrow) on our way to Benson.

pool and hot tub
closed today too windy
        Looking out our front window a few times during the day we noticed large clouds of dust blowing across the desert floor, glad we were not on the road today!

        Before we knew it was time for supper, even thou the winds let up a bit it was still to windy to BBQ so tonight some fettucini Alfredo with shrimp and a little salad will do the trick.
        After supper we took a short walk to visit with our friends Steve, Barb, Spud and Jan again say for another short visit before we head out in the morning. Its always a delight stopping by to visit our friends on a regular basis.
        Then back home to relax a bit more with our books call it another great day to be retired and in a warm winter climate., even if it is windy.
