North of MM 4, Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, California
Tuesday, Feb 7 dawned with winds making the toppers flip and flap. The winds increased in speed until shortly after noon when they slowly started to subside. We had a few gusts later in the evening but the afternoon was pretty good for visiting.
The first grouping is yesterday's photos, the remainder are from today. Sunrise was pretty here in the southern California desert.
Not long after 1 pm yesterday a big truck with a camper was seen speeding toward our neighbourhood and in a cloud of dust it stopped between the Igloo and the Stinger B, the doors flew open and Jerry and Elva popped out. Hugs and handshakes, greetings were traded and before long the world problems were solved. As quickly as that happened another rig could be seen moseying along and before long with very little dust following The Mansion pulled to a stop and Ken and Shirley popped out. More hugs, handshakes and greetings were exchanged and soon we were once again solving problems. A pleasant afternoon that passed quickly and as the sun started sinking Jerry and Elva were heading back home to Welton. It was wonderful to see them again. Maybe the last time for this season.
Ken and Shirley stayed the night in the front yard and are settled in for a day or two. A chance for us all to visit a bit more and share a few laughs, tell a few tall tales and just enjoy the moments! Coffee time, happy hour and even a fire later in the evening made for a wonderful day. Truly a good day in the desert spent with good friends.
Until next time...
Take care, stay safe,
"It might be the last time for this season ". I had to hold back tears.ReplyDelete

This winter has been a very sociable one compared to previous years. It is fun to meet the bloggers you read about in person.ReplyDelete
Very much so, I am enjoying this year a great deal. Putting voices to faces is always fun! I feel as if I know these people since I read their words so often and now I will forever them in my mind.Delete
