Early the next day (Sunday morning) Easton and his dad, Trevor, arrived at our home, bright and early, to drive Jeanette and I over the Aldergrove border crossing, into the Bellingham city area of Washington State and to the airport for our 10:00 am flight to Las Vegas, NV.
|Jeanette and I were quite surprised when Easton teared up when we said our good byes. The little fella understood that we were leaving and he was very sad about that. Well, his grand parents were very sad too!|
Although the airport was busy with flights leaving for Seattle, Phoenix, and Hawaii, the line up to pass through security was long but relatively quick. By the time we got through that bit of business, the call to board the flight was only minutes later. Jeanette and I had pre-booked our seats and we sat on the left side of the MD-80 jet, in the very first row. Once on the ground in Las Vegas (and with no luggage other than a carry on bag) we were able to escape the crowd, jump into a cab and, ten minutes later, we had arrived at the Oasis RV Resort in south Las Vegas to retrieve our truck. It was stored in their locked compound for the entire month we were away. Our daily storage cost was $2.65/ day.....and more than well worth it for security and peace of mind.

We stopped at the office in Moabi/Pirates Cove Resort and booked a spot for one overnight. Once hitched up we drove all of two minutes away from the secure storage facility to the site in the photo below.

This incredibly nice weather (78 - 80 degree F) is fantastic. While we were setting up last evening, it was 77 degrees outdoors. What's not to like about that? Temperatures could easily reach 80 degrees here today. Yea!
One fantastic email we received last night was from DIL Courtney - Owen's mom. She sent two beautiful professional photos of Owen that were taken yesterday. WOW! What great photos these are.....and we'll share them here.

Back to the desert blog stuff, Jeanette and I had planned to leave Moabi Regional Park today for Yuma, AZ. We changed our minds this morning. With the long day yesterday - and so little time to set up before nightfall - we decided to hold back one more day to re-organize ourselves and our fiver before heading out tomorrow. We also want to take one nice hike here.
We chose to book into our regular Yuma spot, in the Foothills area, for the next three weeks. Our wheels will roll out tomorrow. Many activities await us in the Yuma area.
That's it from here for now.
Thanks for dropping by.
