Can’t say exactly what we’ve been doing but the days are sure flying by. We moved campsites a few days ago to a spot away from the road dust and a different view. We were joined by Jimbo and our favorite chihuahua Chica.
She is fascinated by our cats, barking at them and following them around. Elvis is trying to ignore her but she scares him even though she’s half his size.
Always room for another Lazy Daze.
We’ve done several hikes in our backyard. Here are some photos from our last hike with John and Susan before they left earlier in the week.
We came across several rock paintings, but not sure of their significance.
On Monday we drove the RV to get some propane and stopped at Action Upholstery in Yuma to get an estimate for our chairs. We decided to let them do the job, picked out what we hope will be cat-proof material, and left the chairs. When we pick them up next week we will leave the sofa cushions to have them recovered also. So in keeping with being trailer trash, we are using our new Coleman Patio Sling chairs for indoor seating, which means carrying them outside for happy hour. Luckily they are pretty comfortable for folding chairs.
After hiking on slippery slopes in Quartzsite, Jimbo decided to buy some hiking poles. We took him on a little hike to try them out, and found some interesting rock cairns in the middle of nowhere.
Yesterday Jimbo accompanied Debbie and me to Algodones for some more dental work. It turned out to be a many hour affair, but I only have one more appointment next week and am satisfied with the work so far. We ran into Chris, another Lazy Daze owner we met in Quartzsite, who is also frequenting a Mexican dentist.
The other day we finally took a longer bike ride (other than the half mile to the dumpster) and came across Laguna Dam, finished in 1909 and the oldest of nine dams along the Colorado River within Arizona. We haven’t found any trails to ride the bikes on, since the ones we’ve hiked have been too steep and rocky for our biking skills, but there are miles of dirt roads to explore.
After I got back from Mexico we took the Lazy Daze 7 miles down the road to Laguna RV Park, where they charge $10 to dump and $5 for water. Since our site is free we don’t mind paying for a convenient dump and water.
I almost forgot to mention the inexpensive and wonderful fresh produce we picked up at a local stand. Yuma is definitely growing on us.
