Since our last post, we have been busy having fun and getting things done. First off, I had my days and dates all mixed up and we didn't check out of San Diego on the 17th as we were suppose to. I had it locked in my mind that the 17th was on a Wednesday...so on Tuesday, the 17th about 1:00 pm, I realized I had made a huge OOPS! It was too late to finish packing and head out so a decision was made to leave early the next morning and go the whole way to Tucson. Thank goodness our site was not reserved!
The Monday before we left we planned to visit Cabrillo NM. I had wanted to play in the tide pools. It was a cool, cloudy day, but that didn't deter us one little bit. It also didn't deter the many other folks with the same agenda. When we arrived at the park, we discovered admission was free as it was Presidents Day. Yikes...there were thousands of people with cameras in hand already exploring the pools and thousands of others looking for a parking place. None to be found and finally the road down to the tide pools was closed. Next visit, we will make this a priority and visit sooner.
Instead of going home totally disappointed, we took the short walk to the historic lighthouse there...something we didn't do 2 years ago. There is also a 2.5 miles walking path to enjoy.
The main reason for a return to Tucson is doctor visits. I am happy to report, Sally is A OK. She had a 3 month blood work up done at Ajo Veterinary Clinic to check her thyroid function. We feel very blessed to have found the best vets all over our country and Ajo is no exception. If you travel with pups and need a vet, we highly recommend Dr. Christensen and her vet tech. Belle also has an appointment for service the first week in March and I need glasses. There are also a couple of DIY projects we want to check off the list before we head north for the spring and summer.
Friday, the 20th, we had a nice surprise. Jim and Mary Ellen and their two Scotties pulled into Lazydays for the week-end on their way to San Diego. It was a busy fun-filled weekend...more on that next time.
On our walk at Cabrillo, a gentleman was very eager to share a find...there were several families around and he repeatedly said, "Anyone want to see an alligator lizard?" I was the only person who responded. How sad is that?
Until next time, take care and...
