SPOTTED THIS 'FAIRY DUSTER' ALONGSIDE THE ROAD
What a treat it was this morning to open the Motorhome door to quiet & calm air. The mountain sunrise & warmer temperatures had us outside within minutes relaxing in our pajamas with coffee in hand. Cactus Wrens were twerbling in the Mesquite trees & a hummingbird dropped by to say hello. Dragon Flies were in the air & we saw several butterflies. Wasn't long & we had nice little morning campfire going. Just might delay our Saturday departure for another day or two now.
GOLD ROCK RANCH LAUNDRAMAT
Happy to report that Kelly's Dad has been moved from the hospital to a re-hab center & is doing reasonably well. My Uncle Harry is still in the hospital & is slowly regaining strength. With a little bit of luck he may be back to his 'assisted living' facility sometime early next week.
SOME MEMORIES FOR OLDTIMERS
Having been in this area before we are familiar with where things are so headed up the road a few miles this morning to, GOLD ROCK RANCH RV RESORT. We had a load of laundry to do & we've used the laundromat there before. A lot of mining artifacts have ended up here in this RV Park & I took a lot of pics of things in December of 08. You can see those pics here at...GOLD ROCK PHOTOS & the blog for that same day here at...GOLD ROCK BLOG I also took a few more this morning while we were there & I will include them in this blog.
Last time here we also explored what was left of the old mining town of Tumco which is about 3 miles up the road from where we are camped now. An organization in El Centro later emailed me seeking permission to use some photos I took that day & I said yes. Never saw their project so I don't know which photos they used but you can see the photos of that day here... TUMCO PHOTOS (check out the large Cyanide tanks & old graves) & you can read my blog from that day here... TUMCO BLOG.
We've decided to stay another day so tomorrow we might see a few jets in the sky as the Blue Angels perform at the El Centro air show west of our location. We won't see the heart of the show but we might get some F/A 18 Hornets making some rather loud & sweeping turns out over the desert here closer to Yuma. I went to a lot of Air Shows years ago in London & Hamilton Ontario but I can't take the crowds anymore so we'll watch from the desert. First aerobatic team I ever saw was the Golden Hawks flying F 86 Saber jets way back in the 50's.
All & all we had a quiet afternoon just relaxing under the awning & soaking up this beautiful wind free & warm California day:))
