Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas to you all!   I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and fabulous New Year!

We arrived in Quartzsite, AZ  on the 14th,  coming from Borrego Springs, CA.  It’s was a wonderful 2 + weeks at Borrego.  Mike and Joan joined us a few days before we took off, it was fun to have some company.  Oh…we did have friends Gary and Janice stop by for a few hours one day also.  Besides that it was just us 3, Dave, Cheyenne and me.  Another beautiful, relaxing boondocking stay.

Our plan is to be in the Quartzsite area through the big show.  We’ve never been but understand it gets a bit insane around here, so we thought we’d arrive early!  The show isn’t until the end of January, I imagine it will be hopping around here but it should be fun.  So far it’s pretty quiet…but more people arrive daily.

Out in the desert by Quartzsite, AZ

See the sticks up in the arms of the cactus?  Maybe a nest?

Don't get too close :o)

A nice sunny day!

A Merry Christmas to you and Dave in the southwestern desert. You both have seemed to 'fall' into the 'boondockin' way of life. Someday Linda and I will join ya' if we can get away from the east coast. Love your pics!

She might be a silly, sweet girl, but she's also a beauty!
Love the sunrise & rising moon photos!
We're in Palm Springs for a bit before we start making our way back through AZ.
Merry Christmas!

Hi Lisa! Yes she is a pretty girl too...I say she is silly because almost every day she makes me laugh.
I was quite excited to get that moon pic. I've taken others but that was the clearest I've gotten.
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
