One Big Circle

At Laughlin
We left Quartzsite on March 9 and traveled up to Laughlin, NV.  Friends Chad & Robin from Tri-Cities, WA were flying down to Laughlin for a few days so we decided to meet up with them.  We stayed at Don Laughlin’s Riverside RV Resort so we were within walking distance of the casinos and restaurants.    It was great to see our friends again, we had a fun visit, went to some yummy restaurants, strolled along the Riverwalk, took the water taxi to visit some of the far off casinos and just had a good time.

From Laughlin we drove to one of our favorite Thousand Trails parks… Verde Valley in Cottonwood, AZ.  The weather was good and the stay peaceful.  We did drive up to Flagstaff one day.  Another day we went to visit our friends Ron & Marilyn at Lake Pleasant.  Other than that we really didn’t do much that was blog-worthy!

Now we are back at Quartzsite…like the title says, one big circle!  It’s been a bit windy since we got here but that’s okay because it’s also been warm.  We can’t run our air conditioner while we are running on solar power and our generator isn’t powerful enough to run the air either….so a breeze is welcome!   We are expecting our friends Dave & Anne to join us here for a few days before they head home to England.  Looking forward to seeing them and catching up on what they have been doing.

Cheye turned 7 last month, and yep, she is turning white...of course my hair is getting a bit of white in it too!

your photos are always amazing! Just lovely.
We used to have two pair of Orioles that would come to our hummingbird feeder many times a day in southern AZ. Aren't they beautiful!
Yes, Cheye is probably so very happy in her old stompin' grounds!

Dave and Lori said...

Thanks!! Yes the Orioles are so striking...they must have a sweet tooth to love that sugar water so much!

Your photos are beautiful, especially the gorgeous sunsets. Love your dog, too.

I have two Orioles that are visiting my hummingbird feeder this last week. They are so bright in color.

Thanks! I guess hummingbirds aren't the only birds that like sugar water. :o)
