Monday, January 24 – Travel Day! After our farewells to our new group of friends, we departed Quartzsite. After two weeks boondocking in the desert with no water, electric, or sewer hook-ups, it will be nice to get to a campground and take a long hot shower. We've relied on the water we carry (about 100 gallons), our holding tanks for waste, and our batteries and generator for power. It was an enlightening and fun experience. We know we can live for a while without hookups.

After a short drive, we arrived at Fortuna De Oro RV Park. Wow! What a fabulous campground. The temperature is in the high 70's with a bright sun in a blue sky. We may just stay here the rest of the winter.

This is our 100 DAYS ANNIVERSARY! We've been full-timing for 100 days. It's been great! It is so wonderful to see people our age.....guess that means Seniors......enjoying life like we've witnessed these past 100 days. Yeah, we've had a few bumps (repairs) but overall it's been absolutely fabulous! We'll celebrate are anniversary tonight!

We went downtown to the Lettuce Festival soon after arriving in Yuma. Marsha mentioned this in our last post. It's the healthiest festival we've ever attended. The focus is all the fresh vegetables grown in the Yuma area. We had a great salad for lunch! We casually walked through the the festival merchant area. It was a Southwestern theme which we really love.




Lots of crafters

Belly dancers entertain the crowd.

Flowers blooming everywhere

The old Yuma was very pretty

We returned to the campground and finished setting up. Marsha took Bella for a walk and we relaxed for the evening.

Tuesday, January 25 – Getting the MH washed and waxed this morning. A group of Mexicans have a business....Papi's Detailing....that come to the campground and wash and wax RV's plus your cars! We are having ours done today. The guys showed up at 8:00 a.m. They did a wonderful joy. The MH looked so good I almost decided not to have it waxed but had them go ahead and do the whole 9-yards. They even wash the car!




Marsha washed clothes and then walked Bella in the open desert next to the campground. She loves her walks.

I purchased fresh oranges and grapefruits from a vendor driving through the campground. They were delicious.

We grilled salmon and halibut on the grill. Some campers gave us the fish back in Columbus, TX. Again the Christmas gift grill worked perfectly.

Thanks for stopping by.
