What a mixed bag of weather we've been having here in southern California. High winds followed by one super calm day, followed by another super windy day. That doesn't stop us though!
We were both looking forward to a calm day to ply the waters of the Colorado River once again. That happened two days ago. It was dead calm.
|The river was calling!|
|But before that could happen, I decided to wash the truck.|
|Our fiver on the ridge overlooking the Colorado River.|
|We prepped the kayak then headed off.|
|Truly a picture perfect day.|
|Following an hour of dual kayaking, Jeanette headed for shore and I paddled away to ply the river on my own.|
|One of the 25 RV pods along the river.|
|Our 5th wheel is on the California side of the Colorado River. Here, I paddled to the east side of the river, which is the Arizona side.|
|Another great view from the Arizona side of the Colorado.|
|It's quite easy to paddle upstream on a calm day like this.|
|We are really enjoying this Sea Eagle kayak.|
|By 3:30 pm it was time to pack it in.|
|Checking out the repair, new tire and new air filter.|
|Since our arrival here, Jeanette had been wishing for a calm night... and the time to hold an old fashioned wiener roast. This was our chance.|
|'Twas a beautiful night, a great fire on the river, clear skies with a sliver of a moon, and stars aplenty.|
|Yesterday was set aside for a ride to Quartzsite, AZ. and the wily RV show in the desert.|
|RV spots around Parker, AZ.|
|Our RVing friend, Dave, is leading the way to Quartzsite.|
|Another - of the many - RV park in and around Parker, AZ|
|We found Hector and Diane who were boon docked near Quartzsite.|
|Just arrived at their boon dock site.|
|A dog stroller! Yikes! What has our world come too?|
Sheesh! I can't believe some people.
|We had been looking for a couple of new RV chairs....and Jeanette liked these.|
|We cut a deal with the vendor and moved on.|
|It's wall to wall people here.|
|We got back to Hector and Diane's sport ute and headed back for their boon dock spot.|
|We can now say we've been 'Quartzsited'.|
|Once back here, we suited up, said our good byes and saddled up for the two hour ride back to our RV site in Moabi. It was a good day....and even better to be riding. The ride back was breezy though!|
That led Jeanette to get some laundry done....and, speaking of that, it's time to get back to the rig and change out a load.
Thanks for dropping by.
