Tuesday, January 27 -  We wrapped up our Quartzsite adventure this morning and headed to Yuma. We are staying in Villa Alameda RV Resort (Don't let the name fool you!), but after living in the desert any park with full-hookups is a resort!

We saw lots of migrate workers along the route to Yuma.

We almost got stuck without a place to land. After our previous stop in Quartzsite, five years ago, we moved to Yuma and stayed at Fortuna del Oro. We reserved a site there this year only to find at the very last minute, that they no longer honor Passport America. That drove the price above $40/night, which is way out of our price range. So we had to hold off leaving Q until we found a place to stay. We still got on the road by 9:00 a.m.

This is a nice enough park with paved streets, gravel sites, concrete patios, FHU/50amp sites, an activity center, laundry facilities, a pool, and a whole list of activities for the winter residents that spend several months here. We're just happy to find a place to stay for the next four nights.

We are on the corner so only one street view.

We're here to go to Los Algodones, Mexico, to visit the dentist for cleaning. Los Algodones is a destination for many in the area for inexpensive dentistry, optical, or prescription medicines. We are meeting several friends on Wednesday for our trip South of the Border.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
