We have been in our RV spot for a couple of months now. We have a pretty nice view of the golf course and hills in the background. We rented a propane heater from our neighbors which makes for more comfortable sitting on chilly evenings.
I have my little flower garden up and running. With my croc knee it’s nice to be able to deadhead the petunias without kneeling.
We have had several visits from a roadrunner. He is quick so it’s hard to get a good close up pic.
The highlight of our holiday season was having both our lads staying for a few days. We were able do some good slot canyon hiking. Our four legged granddaughter Maya was so happy to explore the canyons too.
She waited patiently for Jay to haul her up the many ladders.
Several narrow slots to maneuver through.
There was plenty of squeezing under and around boulders.
Sometimes you just have to lay back and enjoy the ride.
Dax was happy to have some nice sunshiney days down in the desert.
We even managed a bit of pickleball.
Everyone pitched in to wash Jay’s grubby car.
There were a few friendly competitions.
We borrowed our friends grill and had smoked turkey.
All the trimmings were delicious too. I used my griddle as a warming tray. It kept everything toasty hot.
This is a desert Christmas tree.
Most everything is closed in the area and the park we are staying at is really quiet as no Canadians are down for the winter. We are able to play Pickleball with a few Americans that are here. Thank goodness for our good friends Leslie and Stuart. They are our hiking buddies.
We found a new rope hike that was quite demanding.
Yikes! Which do I move first, hands or legs.
A push and a pull was all Leslie needed.
This rock was so comfy.
Not much wildlife on the trails but a cute tarantula posed for a pic.
Stuart had his drone up flying about taking good pictures. I think it would be even better if it could bring me a cocktail.
The lads were running short on soap so I had a soap making week and now have a a nice supply curing on the dash. No problems keeping squeaky clean for the next few months.
We have had several beautiful sunsets lately.
Hopefully we will all be vaccinated up quick smart and this wretched Covid will be a thing of the past. We both wish you a happy and healthy 2021.
