A lazy day just puttering around.

Where are we today ?
         What can I say just another great day. No plans just let the day unfold. Early morning walkabout new places to explore is just wonderful. Got over a mile done then home by 8 am.
so peaceful here
down by the canal over the berm
Heading home this burro watching me
need solar?they have it here
       Cruising around this area some many nice places to camp here.
washrooms and cold showers
        A drive across the dam you can dry camp here in a parking lot
for $15.00 a night. Not sure why because we can camp where we are for $40.00 for 14 days and other LTVA areas as well, same permit we had in Quartzsite and many other areas.
          Back home again the burros like this trailer behind us,
Looks like mom and 2 kids
          Then at 10 am we drove down to the thrift store here by the Christian Centre. About a 1/2 mile away to check it out
Propane sold here 
thrift store with lots bargoons
            Now home for lunch and putter around for a while. I am having an issue with the lights on our towed. Check things out tested and fooled with this for a couple hours, partly working but not all done. Gotta sleep on it some more to see if I can come up with a solution. Yes the ground wire is good seems to be a problem in the coach somewhere. This could be a nightmare.
            That's it, time to relax, have a shower and get some quality reading time in the shade enjoy this magnificent view.
       Soon time to fire up our Weber Q 100. Grill another 5 lb chicken we picked up the other day. Good deal for only $3.93. we will get a lot of mileage out of this bird.
80 minutes of the Q = perfect !
add to a salad and we good to go,
lots leftovers
and another great desert sunset
      We heading out in the morning to Hot Springs Holtville CA LTVA for a few days in the morning, visit some friends and check out the Carrot Festival in Holtville CA as well.
     That's it we done for the day. Thanks for stopping by.

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


  1. What's that trailer doing right behind you? I thought you were all by yourselves up there. Not very nice of them to pull in so close to you with all of that empty space up there.

    We were in that area exactly one year ago today!

    1. Actually there is nobody there in that trailer just the burros.

  2. Crikey ..... you're going to a CARROT festival??????? I LOVE carrots!!

    1. We have missed the Carrot festival every year so gonna try again this year. We love carrots too.

  3. You've got to watch where you step with all those burros around. Love the festivals and I'm sure you'll have a great time.

  4. The sunshine looks so inviting. I love the burros. No worries what so ever. You two have that in worries, just enjoying the good life.

    1. Yep that's they way we like to be, "don't worry, be happy."

  5. A carrot festival? Now that sounds interesting...
    Beautiful day in the desert.

  6. I'm a map-a-holic so I've been off seeing where you are on a map then Google Earth and when you move, I'll get to do it again. Looks like a fine place to hang out.

    1. Lots of wonderful places in the southwest, wilderness is what we enjoy.
      no cities and not many restaurants.

  7. Burrows love carrots. Bring some back for them.

  8. Do those burros bray? Alonzo, a burro that lives a couple miles from us (here in Lo de Marcos) brays and sometimes we hear him when we're walking in the mornings. Funny how sounds carry....

    1. In our 3 days there have never heard them at all. And as you can see they are pretty close.


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