Another nice warm night for sleeping with the temperature shortly after 6 AM being 57F/ 13.8 C. Not a bad way to start the morning at all. It wasn’t long before Riley was awake and out of bed as well. Breakfast this morning was pancakes for a change. We haven’t had them for a while. We had a pretty busy morning ahead of us and wanted something to keep us going.
|Some of the sand dunes on our way to the rest area.|
By 8:30 AM we were in the Dogsled heading to the rest area for a garbage dumpster run as we seem to accumulate about a bag every couple of days. A quick drive to drop things off and we headed back along I-8 EAST toward Yuma.
|Amazing to see.|
Our first destination was the Arizona Market Place but I stopped for a drink of diesel at $3.09 per gallon on the way, then a quick peek around the Arizona Market Place even though we didn’t need anything. Riley found two nice tops she liked and made the grand purchase before heading back to the Dogsled. It was the only items we purchased there. We walked around for a little over an hour and by then I was ready to head out.
|We aren't going to any of those places but we could if we wanted to.|
From the Market Place we headed to Fry’s Drug and Grocery where we proceeded to check things off the grocery list. We find shopping from a list is easier for us than trying to remember what we need. My problem is I often forget the list. From Fry’s we headed off to Walmart to pick up the remaining items on the list. Finished shopping and after a battle with the GPS we were finally on the proper road heading towards home.
|Not going there either.|
As we approached the inspection station with our receipts ready I was heartened to see an middle aged gentleman standing there just waving everyone through not asking any questions at all. Our fruit was safe!!!
|Not sure what they are growing but it sure is straight and green.|
We were home by 2 pm, and getting all the groceries put away. Riley made some lunch and we enjoyed the rest of the few daylight hours available reading and watching out the windows. A few new rigs, a few have left and so the landscape changes with each one. We are liking this area a great deal.

So there you have it, our some what busy but definitely productive day. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
|Home off in the distance.|
Until next time… take care, be safe,
