On the road again Sunday Jan. 10 for Mass at Immaculate Conception. The church was packed. The priest said the Mass the fastest we can remember but the songs were very reverent, not rushed.
Arizona is famous for their colorful sunsets. On Monday I joined in on the Line Dancing class. I felt like a klutz but still enjoyed. Phil has been doing a lot of genealogy.
On the road again Tuesday to MEXICO. We drove to a secure parking lot and walked across the border like soooo many to Los Algondones. We saw lots of Optical Stores: glasses for $19, $29 for bifocals and $39 for progressive or trifocals.
There are also LOTS of pharmacies. And Dental offices. As soon as walking into the town we are asked "do you want dentist?" There were also many peddling all kinds of items.
|I was intrigued by the woman doing scenery painting using spray paints.|
|Using cardboard for the "scalloped" clouds in the sky.|
On the road Friday Jan 15 to the Yuma Proving Grounds. with other Escapee RV'ers.
The proving ground conducts tests on nearly every weapon system in the ground combat arsenal.
We had a very informed docent give a tour of the Museum. He had so many stories about artillery and munitions. Also about movable bridges used in World War II. (using tires)Phil's checking to see if there are any Goodyear tires.
Cauliflower field. The Yuma area also has fields and fields of lettuce and broccoli. We stopped at a vegetable stand and bought fresh cauliflower, oranges, tomatoes, lettuce & red peppers.I have never been so close to a hummingbird. I was talking to the owner of this Park Model. She said the hummingbirds know when she comes for the winter. They are at her home immediately.
We enjoyed our 10 days at the Kofa Escapees park. We joined in a pot luck dinner, happy hour, watched a second Packer game in the clubhouse, visited with many people from around the States and Canada, enjoyed time in the pool and hot tub, line dancing and exercise class.
I joined the ladies and a guy doing the "Adult Coloring." Mmh. Ok. But I get more satisfaction in crocheting shawls. I gave the lady who collects crocheted items a shawl I had completed.since we've been on the road.
