Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends and we relocated today as well.

Where are we today ?

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends

   And us lucky people who get to celebrate it twice once in Canada before we head south and again right here, wherever me might be.
    Today we are one the move, our cheap week at the SKP park is over and we moved exactly one mile up the road back to Valley Vista, much smaller and more our style CTC coast for us $14.00 a night. We don't want to travel on Thanksgiving so it's nice to sit here until Monday when we move on down the road a little further.
     We secured the coach pulled out at 9:15 am moved up the road and all set up by 10 am.
love the entrance here
really like this site, same one
we had last time
Nice garden 2 sites down
        They have a Thanksgiving Turkey dinner here at 1 pm. Cost is free (we like free) The park supplies the Turkey , mashed taters, dressing and gravy the rest is a pot luck we sign up for. We are taking the fresh Cranberry sauce with Orange zest that I made yesterday, you probably saw the recipe yesterday's posting. My Cranberries were gone in no time oh so good, I even put some orange pieces in this time, as Walter suggested ! 
          12:30 down to the clubhouse for a Thanksgiving dinner with 60 of our closest friends, (quite few have have not met yet) Just take our dish, plates and utensils and a nice bottle of wine to share.
we got a table in the corner, pretty quiet,
just the way we like it
this Apple Resiling
Suzie's favorite we picked up
in Albuquerque
at the Bacon, Beer and Blues festival
         Right on time the feast began and the food so much nobody would leave hungry thats for sure and so many tasty dishes.
of course we ate too much
but the desert, I just sampled a bit
Blueberry pie and
apples and cinnamon for me
        Now this guy here Walter is a super fellow, he organized the meal and did the cooking, 3 large turkeys, garlic mashed potatoes, dressing , gravy and even baked some pies. Have been chatting with him since we first came here this year, helps that he does have a restaurant background too. Oh did I mention he did an awesome job!
Walter, has the lovely Cactus garden
2 sites down from us
        Now back to our site read outside in the warm afternoon sun. Then I made a quick trip to Walmart that was open today just to check it out. They are getting ready for their 6 pm sale today, All the aisles lined with pallets of items all shrink wrapped and labelled, areas closed off and the front of the store roped off for the people to line up. There is some amazing deals to be had Betcha it will be a zoo! But there is no way we will be there! Don't care how cheap the stuff is.
one of hundreds of pallets in the aisles
      Now back home enjoy the afternoon sunshine reading until the sunset then it's too cold to sit outside.
not a great sunset, but was still nice to see
        No supper needed tonight after that excellent Thanksgiving meal glad it was at 1 pm, don't feel so full now, maybe pop up a bit of popcorn later and watch a movie.
        Hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving with family and or friends, we all have so much to be Thankful for.
       And thank you for stopping by again.
Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this Fall and Winter..


  1. Nice Thanksgiving dinner. To travel today could have proven to be a busy one on th highways.

    1. The dinner was wonderful.
      We make it a point to try never travel on the holidays

  2. Sounds like another awesome day. Good decision re Walmart.

  3. We made green Apple Resiling wine this past summer. It is perfect for a warm sunny day.

    Looks like a great feast had by all.

    1. We used to make the green apple riesling when we had a house but non room for it now.
      The feast was wonderful .

  4. I felt stuffed just looking at your pictures of the food! ;c)

  5. We all look for excuses to pig out. Thanksgiving is the one big one where we can justify eating all we want.

    1. Yep we can do that an suffer later, then get back on track.

  6. I was so happy on Thanksgiving - my Canadian friends from Prince George, B.C. that I met last winter in Puerto Penasco came through Las Cruces. I cooked a Thanksgiving dinner for the first time! It was so much fun! They're on the way to fly out of L.A. in a couple of weeks to visit family in New Zealand. I'm glad you had a great "American" Thanksgiving - the food looks amazing! :-)

    1. That was awesome that you had company and a wonderful time. One of these times we will hook up, come see us in the desert will be fun.


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