To post photos of cleaning, vacuuming, laundry and more seem pointless. With plenty of time to take long hikes around here though, the photos that follow feature this nice - but sadly under utilized and poorly managed - RV facility.
|Would have loved to take a ride too......!|
|Nice planters that dot the marina boardwalk|
|The marina is very, very quiet but the restaurant and bar remain open.|
|Great landscaping along the riverside chalets.|
|A solitary houseboat awaiting the summer party crowds.|
|Great idea for a water fall. Sounds great too.|
|No shortage of diverse views. This photo points towards the little mining town of Oatman, Arizona in the far away mountain range.|
Now? Take at look at one of the riverside pods in the photo below. No RVers here!
|No RVers in this pod too.|
|Awesome sand dunes along the river's edge.|
Were it not for storing our fiver in the secure facility, including 24 hour security, - while we are back at home for Christmas - we likely would not roll back here. We may well change our storage plans come next winter.
That said, this was a good place to be, for our stated purpose, these past three nights. Rather than placing our RV on the peninsula riverside sites, we chose a paved site near the river estuary, next to the boat launch and marina. We are one of five sites that are occupied. The paved site here can easily accommodate more than 50 RVs. Sad!
We do have awesome memories of our time spent here, in years past. Hiking the familiar trails, the riverside and the hillsides is a pleasure. Kayaking up and down the Colorado River brings back great memories too. Doing so with so few people around is nice....but it leaves us feeling sad for what this place was and could once again be. But that is out of our control. I don't get the thinking by county politicians and executives.
Anyhow, a few more minor chores and we'll be set to drive further north. Las Vegas awaits! It is where we will catch our flight back home for Christmas, this Thursday, Dec. 18th. Something else for Jeanette and I to look forward to.
Thanks for dropping in.
