      This morning just another wonderful great desert day beginning. Was warmer this morning 40 f (4c) at 5 am but with our Mr heater we were soon toasty warm. But did not catch a nice sunrise, just because it was not visible.
       First thing I wanted to do after a nice walkabout, was head into town and pick up a few supplies for the next few days. Beat the crowds that we have seen in town, Thanks giving coming on so the stores are busy. At 7 am I did what I wanted to do. Should be good to go for a few days at least.
       Home by 9am . we muttered around for while and discussed what and where we might like to go in the next few weeks. Not sure yet and we don't like to plan ahead  just the way we roll, works for us.
another beautiful sunny day
     Eventually time for lunch , and Suzie's request was this New England Clam Chowder that I picked up in Buffalo New York.  It looks like it could be really good and it sure was. One of the best we have every had.
this chowder was amazing 
      Lunch done and I got a new more walkabouts the park just over 3 miles today. Then we can relax in the sun under the shade tree behind our coach, perfect. Did get up to82 f (27c) and was very nice in the partial shade we had.
you know it is a great day when Suzie is in shorts 
we behind this tree gives us a bit of shade
and warmth from the sun.
this lady walked by, her cat taking her for a walk
       Soon the sun was setting just after 5 pm , Starting to take shape for a nice sunset.
       While this was going on I fired up our Weber Q 100 to heat up a couple of Cornish Pasties that we bought in Grand Bend Ontario last fall.
not long to warm up
and these are so tasty
        Added some gravy left over from our beef roast the other day and these were amazing !
yummy? Yup they were
then another very nice desert sunset
to make another perfect desert day
      This past spring when we were here we visited  the Fairbanks Ghost town,if you like you can check it our HERE  it was an excellent ghost town to visit. No need to go back this soon.
       That was our very relaxing day in the life of us full-time rv'ers. Just the way we love to live.
       Thanks for the visit and hope ya'll had a wonderful day as well.

Where have we been this winter ?


  1. Sounds like a great day. Dinner looked amazing as usual. Hard not to wear short pants in this kind of weather. Amazing sunset, I am truly enjoying them.

    Take care, be safe,

    1. It was one of our normal days that we enjoy exercise, fresh air, sunshine, good books and good food.
      Gotta love this winter weather in the southwest.

  2. Love Cornish Pasties! Looks delish.

  3. Those pasties look delicious! We had never experienced a pastie until we visited Michigan's Upper Peninsula. So glad I found your blog! Dawn

    1. Thanks for stopping by Dawn glad to have you along. I had them first travelling through upper Michigan over 40 years ago, have been hooked ever since.

  4. Beautiful sunset! Those pasties look amazing! Again another perfect day for you two!

  5. Beautiful sunset and good looking meal. The route you normally travel won't likely get you near a Publix Grocery but if you do get near one, I suggest you give Tony's Clam Chowder a try.

    1. Thanks Larry, will keep an eye out for it, a good chowder is always a wonderful treat.

  6. You BBQ makes me hungry every day.
    We were visiting in the pool with people from Ontario yesterday and as a joke I asked it they knew George and Suzie.
    He said yes !! It was Bill and Pat Richards.

    1. LOL,
      Sure is a small world, were have known them for a few years now, a real super couple.

  7. I just love pasties, we discovered them on a trip to London a few years back. Wish they were more readily available in the U.S.

    1. They are rare to find them, Upper Michigan they are popular, and we found a few places in Ontario.

  8. The desert temps do tend to be chilly at night, perfect for sleeping and warm during the day, perfect for being outside. Are you far enough from town to enjoy the night sky?

    1. Another reason we love the south west desert, perfect temperatures. The Night time skies are pretty good but will be better in more remote places.


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