It Was a Blast!



Cocopah RV Resort
Yuma, AZ
February 5 - March 5, 2014


Our time in Yuma has come and gone. Time flies when you're having fun...

Our puppies had a great time too! 



I'm really going to miss our walks there...
 



 
I don't know the name of this little guy, but he was very interested in the clanging noise made by the flag on the flagpole.
 

Sure gave me a chuckle...what a way to start the day!



 
And speaking of starting the day...every morning we welcomed the sun rising and the sweet smell of fresh celery from the field behind us...
 
 
...or the clean smell of freshly plowed dirt as we walked to the doggie park.
 
 
 
We were never lacking in something to do or somewhere we wanted to go. Cooper was a real trooper. In fact I nicknamed him Trooper Cooper. He endured dusty rides in Pearl, hikes,
 
 
and being left alone while we enjoyed margaritas and tacos in Algodones AGAIN!!
 



 
Joe and I were more than pleasantly surprised at how scenic Yuma and the surrounding area is. Between the Colorado River, the desert, historical sites, and farm lands, I was never lacking in opportunities to photograph this beautiful land we call our home. 
 






 
 
In addition to all the exploring, we had many nice evenings sharing dinner with Ronnie and Carol. Ronnie can sure cook some lip smacking, fall off the bone yummy ribs!
 
There were no goodbyes this morning...instead, hugs and  "until next time"...
 

"safe travels" and...

 
enjoy!

  7. You sure are developing an eye for picture taking! Great bird photos! Love the tree pic. Love the colors of Algodones. And the homeyness of the two porch chairs. It sounds like you found the perfect Winter home. Safe travels you two.

  9. We can see why you're going to miss being in that area but there is still so much more of this land to explore.
    Leaving friends new or old to go in different directions is always the hardest thing to do.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  10. You have definitely convinced me that Yuma is high on the list of possibilities for a winter stay next year. We are still tying to decide if we will make our annual trek to Florida from Oregon again or try a West Coast winter. Margaritas and tacos in Algodones are a significant factor!

    Love the photo of the vintage chairs against the weathered wood.

    1. Thank you Pam...the picture of the chairs was taken at the From the Farm farmers market where we had date shakes.
      There is a lot to do here if you like the outdoors. The bike paths thru the city parks and wetlands are awesome.
      There are dusty, dirty areas, but I just choose not to see them.
      Isn't it just so nice that we have the choices about where we want to call home for a season? It's a wonderful life and adventure!
