A down day to clean and do some house keeping. About 3:30 pm we went to visit with some friends, David and Diane. I’m so lucky she retrieved a package for me, plus it was her David’s birthday 🎉 We had appetizers and beers🍺 it was a fun time!!
Today Friday the 14th we are just chillin in the morning. This afternoon we will be playing golf.
The golf course is really beautiful but due to the altitude it was challenging. I could only due 9 holes and my heart rate was around 120 bpm and I got soooo tired. OMG am I of shape !!Light bulb moment. Yet the day was wonderful and I enjoyed the bloody mary while golfing which you all know had nothing to do with the tiredness…..🤣
Today, Tuesday the 11th is a down day and yes, laundry day. So while David did laundry I cleaned inside the rig. I even washed the floors today. As you noticed rving isn’t all fun sometimes you have to do cleaning!
Our cough is finally decreasing and we are getting better. Naps in the afternoon do help.
Used the crockpot to make supper, roast pork, red potatoes and corn. The smell in the RV was tempting all day! Yummy 💋
Just got this picture of my youngest grandson Sebastian playing baseball. I’m so proud! ❤
Evelyn finally got her package and she loved it!
We got up had coffee, breakfast then I got the hats, walking poles, food and water all ready. Off we went to the Grand Canyon.
We entered the Grand Canyon at the south entrance and drove all the way along the East rim!
Another beautiful day, the canyon leaves me speechless it is so beautiful. Today we explored the East side of the canyon. Tomorrow is a down day and meet up with some friends later in the day. ❤
After a great day yesterday, we relaxing when suddenly the whole RV shook and we heard a crunch. As we ran out other campers were yelling at the driver of motor home that was backing up into us. Luckily he stopped immediately and went forward. It was his ladder that hit us. Thank goodness there was no damage!
Another wonderful day. We took the train to the Grand Canyon. It was a beautiful, relaxing and entertaining. They have musicians and a show too, all on board. I saved up so we could sit in the luxury seats and it was well worth it. They had a small breakfast with a blueberry muffin, yogurt and cheese sticks. I put the cheese sticks in the back pack for later. The pictures are from the train, on the way to the Grand Canyon.
It was a short visit only 3 hours but we will be going back later this week. We want to explore more of the canyon and different rims. When we got back on board there was boxed snacks and champagne.
It was definitely a great day and experience. We do want to see more of the Grand Canyon so will come again this week.
Well both of us really felt crappy, stuffed up, itchy eyes and ears. So yesterday we went to a local clinic. Sure enough we had a dry coughing and nasally sounding. After we got checked out we were put on meds to help the coughing, antibiotics for the sinus infection and inhaler to help with bronchial spasms. All the med weren’t covered so again we dipped into our travel fund…grr $$
David was great, he didn’t feel good either and yet he made some homemade chicken noodle soup. Yummy 🍜
We were suppose to go golfing but I don’t feel up to it but after 2 days in the rig I need some out time. We will probably go to Bearizona cause you ride through 1/2 of the exhibits.
Bearizona is a 2 part park, one side you drive through 3 miles of animals in their own habitat. The 2nd part is a walk through of other exotic animals.After Bearizona we went into town for a bite to eat. I chose to go to Pine Country Restaurant. It homemade comfort food. Very good! Its been a really great Mothers day! Both boys called, My husband gave me a beautiful card as well as spending the whole day with me. Oh, yes even Peanut gave me a Mothers day card. Ahhhhhh….. happiness ❤
With a new lock on the door I definitely slept much better. Up early I might be a little excited to go see the Grand Canyon.
I was ready to get going but David is having a little altitude side effects, fatigue and slight dizziness when he gets up to fast. I sent him back to bed. So I think today we will just stay home. Maybe this afternoon we will go to Safeway for some groceries.
Well it looks my allergies are kicking my butt today. Awww we both don’t feel 100%, so down day it is! About 5pm we went to check out the Elephant Rocks golf course and finished at Safeway for some groceries. Easy dinner tonight, turkey sandwiches.
Today the 7th we went and met some friends, Mary and Sam. We met them when we went to Italy, 3 years ago. So we had lunch in old Town Cottonwood. So I did take some pictures on the way. They are along rte. 17. Silly, there was 4 of us with cameras on our phones and not 1 picture was taken….lol.
The next set of pictures is on the way through Sedona to Cathedral Rock. Then we went to The Chapel of the Holy Cross.
Well today the 5th is a down day as we wait for the locksmith to come and fix the door. About 4pm the locksmith came and put in a new lock, $$$ oh well. We now can lock our rig! So now some decompression time. We rode down rte. 66 visited a few places and end up having drinks. Ahhhhhh!
Found a diner with a pie shop in it! So it was chocolate cake and chocolate cream pie, to go. Yummy 🍰🍮
Well today was a down day and much better then yesterday! We are now chillin watching the mask singer. Good night ahhhh sweet dreams 💋
Today, May 4th and we are on our way to Williams AZ. The flowers are blooming on some of the desert cactus.
Thank goodness the 3 hour drive to Williams was uneventful except for a 8 mile span of route 40 highway was awful! Here are some pictures along the way.
Well we finally got to the Williams KOA. Hmm? A little disappointing the site was a back in and that’s OK. What was surprising was the site was small. There is just enough room for the RV, trailer and car. This leaves very little space to sit outside or use the picnic table. The park is clean and neat, and they are getting ready to open the pool.
So now, David was outside and tried the RV door, it wouldn’t open. I was inside the RV and heard a knock on the door. I went to open the door and it wouldn’t budge. David and I played with the door for about 10 minutes. I finally got the panel off the lock. I continued to play with it and finally all the gears lined up and the door opened.
So I called a couple of locksmiths to find one that could fix the lock. I was lucky that one was going to take care of it tomorrow. Phew…..
David decided to take a shower. I guess the shower had low pressure but hot anyway. Well while getting dressed his glasses slipped and fell on the floor. One of the lenses popped out. So of course he couldn’t see to fix them. He brought them back to the RV and handed me the 2 pieces. They were delicate and so I carefully put the lens back into the glasses. It has been quite a day….. good night 💋
It was a beautiful day Saturday, my nephew’s wedding ❤
Monday just a chill day. David did laundry. H & R called are taxes are done. Had a home happy hour.
Tuesday, got an invite to go to lunch with Annette ( my boss and friend) we went to Papa Leone for a couple of beers and a pizza. Yummy! It was a great afternoon 😁
Wednesday did another storage bin under the RV. Only one side left, leaving day is getting closer, only 6 days left and then off to Williams, AZ. Grand canyon here we come.
The back of our friends RV, being personalized.
Went an got our taxes then stopped for our last happy hour in Lake Havasu city.
It has been a good season and a few more small things to do before we leave. We are leaving on Tuesday May 4th. I’m getting excited to seeing the west. Grand Canyon, Sedona, Teton, Yellowstone, yes the tourist route…lol.
It is starting off as a quiet week. David did some Uber driving and I just puttered around the RV. Getting ready for the oil change on Wednesday. Monday we brought the paperwork to H and R Block to have our taxes done. After we decided to do some Door Dashing. We quit early and went to eat Chinese food, yummy!. I noticed when we got home I had lost my glasses. UGH !!
Tuesday got 2 new pairs of glasses and some more paint. I want to do a little more painting on the 2nd wall I started. We had salads from Chili’s and left over spaghetti for dinner.
I got a couple of pictures from Seth. Nolan pitching for 2 innings and catching the rest of the game.
Wednesday was busy, we were out the door at 7:30 am to have the RV oil change, a light fixed and new windshield wipers put on. While they were doing that went and got coffee from dunkin donut. Next egg mcmuffins from McDonald’s, we went to the dog park where there are picnic tables. After breakfast I was curious if there was a cemetery in Lake Havasu city. Yup we found it! Small and no headstones only flat markers. In the middle of checking it out the call came, the RV was ready except the guy at the parts store gave him the wrong blades. So off to the parts store again.
Once we got the RV back to the resort and got settled we went grocery shopping. Ugh….. well done for another month. Later David returned the 1st set of blades and I puttered around the RV. The rest of the day was quiet even to the point I got a nap in. 😀 It was a good day, busy but nice to spend the time together.
Today is one of our princesses Birthday ❤🎉🎁🎂 Evelyn is 7 years old. Phew where does time go!?
David has been working, Uber, on Friday and Saturday. I have very puttering around the RV. Getting ready to leave on May 4th, headed to the Grand canyon. Doing cleaning like the vents, cabinets, fridge and microwave. Today, Saturday I will start the outside cubby holes under the RV. They need cleaning and reorganizing. Getting ready to get going.
