       Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends, another day to reflect on how blessed we are to be enjoying this wonderful lifestyle. Our good health, lovely families and  friends.
      Did get a few very nice walkabouts this park a couple miles in and a nice sunrise before 9 am sure feels good in the warm sunshine and cloudless blue skies.
a nice desert sunrise
love the wide open spaces and mountain views
Came across this HUGE sentry Plant
looks like a bird up there
yup a big bird, hawk maybe?
garden shed looks like a barn,
barn quilt on the side, kinda
cool to see here in the desert
         Back home we enjoying the outside weather and chatted with Jean and Skip for a while , more catching up. Then time for a light lunch.
          At 2:15 we headed to the large clubhouse at the back for our Thanksgiving dinner at 3 pm. It was a free potluck the campground cooked 3 turkeys , 2 bone in hams and supplied gravy. the rest was potluck. 
this is the place set up for 70 people
we took this huge apple pie and went over well
we had our choice of seats but nice to relax and chat
with Jean and Skip
lots of deserts
lots of food
so many choices too
we got lucky and were first in the lineup
it was all excellent, no way to sample everything,
but I tried! 
the line up moved quickly and still lotsa food
      Finally just after 4 pm we rolled outta there and drive the short distance home, Just to plop ourselves in our lawn chairs,and enjoy some more relaxing reading in the shade on this amazing day.
shortly after 5 pm the sun begins to set
and the air cools down
another nice desert sunset
     Still nice out side for a while so bundled up, sweaters, socks and long pants then continue to enjoy this outside fresh air. Posting this blog and some more quality reading time. What's not to love about that?
     That was our wonderful second Thanksgiving celebration this year. And was excellent as usual. Hope y'all had a great one as well.
     Thanks again for stopping on by for another peek at our lifestyle.

  3. Looks like you had a great Thanksgiving dinner. Glad that you had fun and enjoyed yourselves.

    We have noticed some "barn quilts" on our drive through, Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. They are now becoming quite the "thing".

    1. We did have fun and the meal excellent.
      The barn quilts are becoming very popular and have seen lots in our travels as well,

  4. Campgrounds look like a great place to be for Thanksgiving dinner - I guess no too plates of food look the same.

    1. Thats for sure, and you can pick the foods you like always lots of tasty dishes.

  5. WOW!! I think that's the longest potluck line I've ever seen!! What fun!!

  6. Looks like a great meal. Did you say you drove back to the clubhouse? I would have had to walk off the food! Glad you had a nice meal with Jean and Skip.

    1. We drove back because we had coolers, and more stuff to carry so was much easier. However I did walk the park a few times and logged on 3.5 miles yesterday as I do most days.

  7. A delicious spread! Happy thanksgiving!
