A wonderful sunrise and sunset today but I'll have to post those photos tomorrow. Yes I know it's a day late but oh well. The day was full and I have enough photos of other things to amuse you all.

We started our morning by heading off to the Arizona (Yuma) Marketplace at 9 am. All 5 of us, Deb & Tom (Celebrating the Dance ), Doug (Miss Adventure Travels ), Riley and I climbed into the Dogsled and with Deb D giving directions we made our way there. Walking the aisles, buying a few things, but mostly just enjoying the slow pace and the views we all had a good time. A few photos and before we knew it we were pushing toward the noon hour as we headed for home.
Tom spoke up just as we were approaching The Q Casino and I was quick to head the Dogsled toward the border with Mexico. We all agreed it would be a good idea. We walked and visited a few places, noticed a few new things, had a bite to eat and just enjoyed the slow pace. We were sitting in a little cafe enjoying a drink when a couple stopped by, Diane and Andy (Our Journey) to introduce themselves. We were so happy to meet them and glad they had taken the time to do so, we chatted for a few minutes before they headed off. They hail from Pennsylvania. Doug & I followed them until we managed stop them for a photo. It is always nice to meet fellow bloggers!!
The line to come home was pretty long but we were heading through customs about an hour later, give or take a few minutes. We spoke with some fellow Canadians in line comparing places to go and before long we were passing through customs. We got home around 5 pm. Yuma was happy to see us and even though we'd spent all day together we visited for happy hour. A good day was had by all!!! We look forward to doing it again in the future.
A courtyard on our way to the border crossing. Very cute! The sugar they brought for Doug's coffee. I wondered if he was praying.... She looked pretty happy but I must stay, she missed a few spots. Lunch was chicken enchiladas, better at the other cafe.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all had a great day too.
Until next time.....
Take care, be safe,
