Ok, a couple of new experiences here. First, it is absolutely wonderful to be able to use the pool and hot tub in December while looking at palm trees and desert cactus. A far cry from last December when we were looking at snow and trying to keep the chicken's water from freezing in the coop. The sign at the pool was a new twist for us... We're glad it's there though.
Another thing we ran into and took advantage of was a mobile vegetable and fruit vendor. We heard the typical ice cream truck "London Bridge is falling down" music approaching, and were shocked to see a truck pulling a trailer load of great looking fresh fruit and vegetables trolling the RV park. We bought asparagus, lemons, grapefruit and tomatoes. It was all very good.
The next new experience was kind of dirty... Really dirty. Back in Las Cruces New Mexico, we had the RV washed and waxed. It looked fantastic thanks to a couple hours of very hard work from a crew of three men and two women. Sitting in Yuma one night, the wind picked up and carried copious amounts of sand and dust with it... I didn't realize it was as bad as it was until I took the dogs out for their late night walk in a choking 35mph dust storm. The windows were open on the RV and we woke up to a thick layer of dust inside, a filthy RV outside, and one totally filthy Jeep. The dog water bowl outside looked like it was filled with mud...
Speaking of dogs, life is never dull. We enjoy working on the occasional jigsaw puzzle during longer stays in parks and just recently found out that beagles really enjoy eating any dropped pieces... We were just glad that he left us one corner of the piece so we wouldn't be searching for it. The aussie on the other hand finds himself in the strangest places. In the photo, he is perched on the 10 inch deep counter in the bathroom. Cats have nothing on this guy. Coming next, the trip into California.
