A great sleep and the usual up early on a warmer morning with next to no wind, and the sunrising warming the desert up very nicely. Got a few walkabouts around the campground. Then seeing as we have not plans today we can pack away our Christmas decorations for another year.

Clear blue sunny skies and no wind!! Loving it, is gonna be an awesome day.
After a light lunch I hopped in the car to check out the Imperial Sand Dunes about 10 miles down the road west of here. And being a nice week during Christmas busy as always. Amazing to see all these people camped here with their dune buggies, atv's, motorcycles and sand rails having fun in this desert playground.

I headed down the the Plank road and checked it out , nice to see it has been restored very nicely.

About 5 pm we all headed home for supper. Tonight we are enjoying some catfish fillets and fries.
|I cut these fillets in half so they cook nicer in our fry daddy|
Fresh cut fries done and a set them in a pan on our weber Q to keep warm while the frier came came back to temperature and fried our catfish fillets, just so they are perfect.
Fries keeping warm and heat the lemon to make it juicy and in a few short minutes the fish was done. So moist tender and crispy just the way it should be. We do love our catfish.
Now we both enjoyed a wonderful fish and chip supper, with a few mixed veggies on the side
|oh yeah catfish and fries |
Then we managed to catch another wonderful desert sunset, never tire of these.
|a perfect sunset after a perfect day|
Now inside for the evening we can kick back, relax, finish this posting and watch a show/ movie on tv that Suzie has picked.
Info about The Arizona Market place
A local resident posted a information about why the Arizona Market Place
has fall out of favor here in Yuma
The guy that runs Marketplace (tenant) had a disagreement with the property owners. The tenant put up billboards around Yuma dissing the owners. He specifically called out Dr. Awar. The billboard idea backfired because Dr. Awar is a very well liked and respected Yuma doctor. Local people got mad at the tenant and stopped going.
That was our wonderful desert day enjoying more sunshine, warm weather and fun with our friends, Hope y'all had a great day too. Tank s for dropping in.
