We land at Hidden Beaches in Blythe, CA to deal with the house issues. (See former post.) It is on the Colorado River and sounds like a beautiful park. But not so with the full hookups. We are stuck in a slum, looking at a storage shed and our neighbor’s refrigerator. To be fair, the water sites are immaculate…we did not inquire on their cost. This is a PA park which is $16 with the discount.
We arrive at Dome Rock on Monday, 5 days before the huge fiberglass rally that happens the first weekend in February. Parking in the back close to John and BJ, we think we have a good spot. The next day Jerry and Wanda appear and then Glenda and Jeff . It is bloggers row!
I take few photos…can’t seem to get excited about taking pictures of trailers that look identical. The time is spent visiting and eating.
John, BJ and Turk.
The weather is turning hot! It gets up to 89 inside our trailer and more Casitas keep arriving. We are beginning to feel like a sandwich.
On Saturday morning, no longer having fun, we head east to Scottsdale for another short visit with family.
Trying something new, we make reservations at Westworld of Scottsdale. It is just for one night and much easier to park than the daughter’s back yard.
Our site is in a parking lot facing the polo field.
This large tent is the home of the famous Barrett-Jackson collector car auction. West World is huge! We walk 3 miles trying to see everything.
I know there are some cooler temperatures somewhere. We head up into the Tonto National Forest to a campground on Lake Roosevelt.
Beauty is found everywhere.
And it is cooler! A lovely breeze caresses us as we walk in the morning sun.
I am walking frequently, on a mission to lose some weight after seeing some disturbing photos of myself. Manage to complete 6 miles (according to the phone) the first full day.
Life is good…much like life right before we had the home crisis 7 days ago. And, again, another issue…much like the first one! This time a clog in the plumbing has resulted in an overflow and a very bad smell!
Thanks to a good friend who met the septic company and then met the plumbers, the crisis is resolved. Not sure at this writing if we must head back home early to take care of the aftermath. Don’t want to leave…each day here in the winter feels like a golden gift!
Will know something in a few days.
