This morning we reluctantly finished packing up to leave where we have been parked since, February 28th. First stop, LaPosa South to empty our tanks, no need to add water we have more than half a tank and will be in full hookups by Friday at Quail Ridge RV in Huachuca City. Second stop, Love's Service Center to have our tire checked out. It turns out it was not as bad as it looked and after checking it out there is no issue with the tire or leaks and no charge. Then Tom stopped at the Pit Stop for Propane and then Arco for diesel. Then we hooked up the Jeep and we were on our way. Tonight we are parked at the Holt Shell Station, between the semis, in Gila Bend.
|Up then out the door early. I did not want to miss our last sunrise at this spot.|
|As the sun was rising the moon was setting in the west.|
|This has always been my favorite part of the day when we are out in the|
desert. Watching the shadow stretch across the floor as the sun rises.
|A shadow selfie.|
|The sun is slowly making its way above the mountain|
|and the shadows continue to make there way across the floor of the desert.|
|Everything seems to sparkle in the morning sun.|
|Even the tiniest plant have shadows in the early sunlight.|
|We are packed and the engine is running I know Tom is watching|
|as I walk around taking some last pictures of our home parked here.|
|Then I spotted this little lizard, I wonder if it is the same guy as yesterday.|
I guess this may be his neighborhood.
|The lights have been checked, I have moved the Jeep,|
and Tom is heading out.
|One last picture of our lovely spot|
|and our surrounding|
|and I started the Jeep|
|and I am following Tom.|
|I rolled down the window for one last picture.|
Thanks for all the memories we take with us.
|This would be a just because I thought it was so cute picture.|
For Sale and parked along the road at LaPosa South.
|I could not resist. I took a ride over to|
where we were parked in January to
visit this Ocotillo.
|We have left Quartzsite .|
Sad to leave but looking forward to what is down the road.
|It is hard to tell in this picture, as we are moving, but the floor of the desert|
|is covered in bright orange flowers.|
|The road ahead is filled with traffic.|
|We have now turned south on to AZ-85.|
Tomorrow morning before we leave there will be pictures of the dinosaurs taken and posted. We do have grandchildren.
Sunday, March 17, 2019 (Happy St. Patrick's Day)
It was a lazy Sunday and we mostly just relaxed and enjoyed the day. I did do some cooking but other than that I enjoyed the sunshine. Tom did a couple of chores but, also, mostly enjoyed the sunshine. We did go to Mass at Queen of Peace Catholic Mission here in Quartzsite our last time there this adventure.
We stopped to pick up a couple of things at the Dollar General and then head back home to the Stinger "B" and sat out and enjoyed the evening and the sunset.
|This morning's view as we sat outside and enjoyed our morning coffee.|
|These are the prettiest little tiny white flowers, they look like miniature|
daisies, that make there way out between the rocks.
|There may have been a small amount of an adult beverage in our second|
cup of coffee this morning while we continued to look at the view.
After all it was St. Patrick's Day.
|One of the many Palo Verde in our neighborhood.|
|The sun setting|
|on our day.|
|The last bit of light can be|
|seen over the mountain before darkness descends.|
|Then I decided to take a few pictures|
|with the Super Vivid Effect setting.|
|I love how it takes the tiniest bit of color and light and intensifies it.|
Plus, the flash lights up the bushes close by.
Sunday, March 10, 2019
This Sunday we had dumping the tanks on the agenda. Now doesn't that sound like fun. Actually, I think I have mentioned it before, Tom is the only one having the "fun". I just go along for the ride.
While waiting in line, yes even in March there can be a line though it is a short one, we saw this little Dust Devil come across the road.
Later in the day we went to Mass at Queen of Peace Catholic Mission in Quartzsite.
|As we headed away from the Mission after mass I looked up at the clouds|
and saw what I thought looked like an angel.
Dinner tonight was at the Mountain Quail Cafe. The sun was setting as we made our way home.and we could see some lovely rosy pink in the sky on our right as we made our way south on US-95.
|Starting at the bottom: The sun is setting at the end of Kuehn Street.|
the next two above I took as we were moving. The top one Tom
took just as we turned into Roadrunner BLM.
We then made our way back to the Stinger "B" in the last of the evenings light.
We are happy you stopped by for a visit and hope you enjoyed the pictures.
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
