It was sprinkling this morning as we started our departure procedure. The sprinkles soon stopped and we were able to hook up - sans rain. The wind had stopped and the only impediment we had was dancing around the fresh (gooey) dates on the ground brought down by the wind from the date palm overhead.

We traveled about 100 miles south along US 95 and a short section of I-40 to Lake Havasu, then continued to Parker. We did pass some interesting scenery today, particularly as we crossed back into AZ but, sorry – no photos. Parker has grown since our visit 2 years ago. They have some new stores including a Safeway grocery store and a few new restaurants. We crossed the not-so-mighty Colorado (at this point) and drove north on the California side to our new home for a month at River Lodge RV Resort (technically in the “town” of Parker Dam, CA).

Our “River” site isn’t quite on the River. We debated about how to set up on it and after jockeying around, ended up backing in so that we can have a view of the River. The site is not ideal but it will do. It will mean running the sewer hose under the trailer through the “patio area” to the connection. I guess the connections here, which are old, were set up for motorhomes?

After getting the jacks down we drove down the road about 6 miles or so to visit our friends Blair and Irene who are here from Alberta in their brand new Cedar Creek. We met them in Great Falls before departing for Canada and Alaska. Blair is a retired Mountie and just retired from a business he had. Irene just retired from her job at a college. They are great people and fun to spend time with. We got the tour of their new 5th wheel – nearly 40 feet long and very nice! After having a few adult beverages at the bar/cantina in their park, we enjoyed a steak dinner at the rec hall there. We expect to see them again tomorrow.
