When setting up in our RV site, earlier in the afternoon, the front jacks were making an uncommon sound. I discovered a loose bolt that had unthreaded and was missing the lock nut. The bolt was damaged. Early Sunday morning, Jeanette and I drove over to a large hardware store where I found the perfect bolt, with thin thread and lock nut. That fixed the problem.
We were returning from the RV resort office when we walked by a group of motorcyclists who were meeting up for a group ride. We spotted a couple of Alberta license plates, one BC plate and a few Arizona plates. We engaged them in chat and, within mere seconds, we were invited to join the ride. Alright!
We quickly changed out into riding clothes and rolled out of the RV park with the other riders. Our destination? Martinez Lake for lunch.

To walk by the motorcycle riders - who winter in the Fortuna de Oro RV Resort - and to quickly be invited to join their ride....and to later discover that three of the riders grew up and went to school with Jeanette is quite unbelievable. But that is precisely what happened. Amazing!
|Our new motorcycle riding friends.....and a friendly bunch they are!|

On Sunday evening, we 'Face Timed' Deni/Courtney and grandson Owen (in Edmonton, Alberta) before another 'Face Time' with Ginette/Trevor and grand kids Brie and Easton (in Langley, BC). We closed the 'Face Time' on our iPad after having a pleasant chat with a good friend from back home.
Thanks for dropping by.
