Click on a pic to enlarge it
         A nice sunrise and warming up very nicely. 
         And that's great looks like we have a few fun things on the agenda. Shortly after 8:30 this morning a bunch of us piled in our cars and headed to El Centro for the 32nd annual Welcome Back Snowbirds Breakfast for anyone with an out of country drivers license, but did know there was people there out of state as well.
     There was a very long line but moved quickly and we were through and had our food in about 5 minutes or so.
two serving lines went quickly
      Usually we have had pancakes in the past but today biscuits w/sausage gravy and ham (not our favorite but was not too bad) Juice and coffee as well. Hey it was free and fun.
biscuits and gravy
lots of seating inside 
even more seating outside
the weather perfect
coffee and juice
they had lots of draws, but we did not win
and 2 final grand prizes $50.00
 gift certificates for Walmart
enjoying the sunshine and watching
 the young dancers
these dancers were good
           Now back home before noon and it was very hot in the sun, so I donned my swimsuit and headed over to the Hot Springs for a hot shower (no soap) and soak in the Hot tub oh so good, nice and relaxing and refreshing.
perfect day for the Hot spring
        Now to relax for a while with our e-readers until 1:45. Time to head out to the Silvarado Ranch in Holtville to Celebrate Enriques 69th birthday. A great turn out, we took my Macaroni salad I made yesterday and many more dishes there as well. What a feast. Enrique and Elvera supplied rice, bean, beef and gravy, chips salsa and a great party place at their Ranch live entertainment and large dance floor.

More dancing we even got in a few dances ouselves
          Then about 4:30 they played "King of the Road" and "Good Night Irene" perfect cue for us to head out, cooling down  and will be dark soon. So said a few goodbyes and headed back home.
love this fire pit on wheels,
great idea
          We wanted get a few things done before dark,  store our Weber Q, lawn chairs and tables and check tire pressures, We heading back to Quartzsite in the morning, Got things to do there.

Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this Fall and Winter..


  1. That looked like a fun day but I don't think you were following your diet.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Actually we are not on a diet just following a healthier everyday eating lifestyle. And it is ok to have a small portion of whatever we want occasionally. I did get a couple miles walking in as well.

  2. Looks like the Snowbird Breakfast was a huge success. Not so sure that I would be willing to stand in that line even if the food was free. Looks like you were on one eating frenzy to another.

    1. This Breakfast is always a success. We never did stand still in the line, slowly moving along chatting with people, maybe 5 minutes. Its a social event ya know.

  3. What a great day full of socializing and good looking food.

    1. It was a fun few days here with friends and good food, now time to move on down the road.

  4. Replies
    1. Yep we busy , time to take it easy for a while now.

  5. Eating, drinking, partying and soaking in the hot springs all in one day ... you were busy.

    1. Yes very busy, now to run away for a while, LOL...

  6. A fun day full of friends, yummy food and entertainment! Looks you are having a great time!

  7. What a LOT of people there! Just a few hundred of your new best friends? Y'all look like you're having a great time.

  8. Just goes to prove the early Snowbird gets the worm (or biscuits & gravy). :c)

  9. Wow guys are having a lot of fun. Loved to see Ron and Betty again. They always used to go to Enrique's party.

    1. We are having a ball and was so nice to meet them a wonderful couple they are.

  10. Looks like a fun time and lots of food! We would have been disappointed with the breakfast as we wouldn't have been able to eat any of it but the dinner is another story, it looked delicious. Have fun at Quartzsite.

    1. It was a fun day, we were disappointed with the breakfast too, but did eat a bit anyway. The Gluten does nit seem to bother us.
      Dinner was excellent and Quartzite is always fun.


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