Saturday we started the day by driving over to RV Lifestyles to get some things checked out on the Stinger "B" and while they took care of that we drove over to the Mountain Quail Cafe for breakfast. If we are going out to breakfast in Quartzsite this is the place we are headed to. The food and the service are always excellent.
Parked back in our neighborhood I decided to take the new camera out for a walk. Below are some of the photos.
|First stop was to check out the Ocotillo across the way. Some green on the|
branches but no sign of little green leaves.
|Trying out the zoom.|
|Not sure why I liked the look of these rocks but I did.|
|Tall stately Saguaro.|

January 14, 2018
Early this morning we headed into Parker for 8 o'clock Mass at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. The light was just starting to peak over the mountains as we pulled out and once we turned north onto
US-95 I tried to capture some of the color. This is only my second day using the new camera and they did not turn out to badly. I am reading the book and I can tell this is going to be a process but one I am going to enjoy.
|I could tell the sun had come up over the mountains behind us by|
the light on the mountains in the west.
|The road ahead.|
After Mass we had breakfast at the Crossroad Cafe and we would go back again. They even offered Mimosa's and Bloody Mary's but knowing I was going to be doing some grocery shopping afterwards I decided coffee was to be the beverage of choice.
On the way home we took a quick ride down Plomosa Road.
|Tom and I are guessing this is their "RV"|

|In past years when we have parked in this area in March there are maybe|
a half dozen RV's parked near us. Just a "few" more in January.

Black Beauty can be seen on the left.
As we were sitting and chatting at today's Happy Hour George mentioned that Nancy Kissack, Kissack Adventures, had contacted him about stopping out to meet them and it was not long after that she pulled up. To end up meeting not two but six fellow bloggers. She was a wonderful addition to the Happy Hour. It was nice to meet another blogging RV'er and with that in common the conversation just continued to flow.
|Tonight's Happy Hour and I barely got Tom in the picture. Going right:|
Bill, George, Suzie, Nancy, and Patsy.

We have had a couple of great days parked out in the desert. We hope you enjoyed your weekend.
