Walleye From Lake Erie, Friends Leave, Beautiful Sunsets

Saturday, December 28, 2019

We are enjoying our days here at Pilot Knob RV and today was certainly was one of those enjoyable days. JoAnne and Bob invited the gang over to their place for fish and chips. What a nice treat that was. Bob cooked and shared Walleye he had caught in Lake Erie. Everyone chipped in and brought a dish and we certainly had a delicious meal. The star though was the fish that Bob and JoAnne shared with us. Thank you for the invitation and the wonderful meal.

It was an evening filled with laughter, good food, stories,
picture taking, and time spent with friends.
Happy hour extended to about five hours.

The sun was already up a ways as we headed into Yuma.

At Immaculate Conception Catholic Church
the front entrance is decorated for Christmas
and they have a small creche next to the stairs.

Inside is decorated for Christmas.
The top left and bottom right pictures are panels
on either side of the entrance into the church.
After Mass we headed over to the Black Bear Diner for
breakfast. The food was good and enough leftovers for
another breakfast Monday morning.

Since we were already at the Palms Mall after breakfast we did a little shopping.

While we were gone Cheryl and Dave packed up and headed out for new adventurous further west. Hated to see them leave but their plan is to head back towards Quartzsite in a couple of weeks. So we will be looking forward to getting a chance to visit some more then.

We made it back to the park in time for Happy Hour which was at Kim and Ken's today. With the sun shining we were actually able to enjoy a couple of hours sitting outside. Right around 5 with the sun making its way down we could all feel the cold setting in and it was time to head home.

Tonight's sunset was  fantastic.


While sitting, eating, and watching the sunset 
we noticed Patsy and Bill walk by. Bill was carrying 
a plane so we also had a nice view of its flight while we ate.

Actually slept in this morning. Sort of a laid back day today. Happy Hour was gong to be here tonight and we will be inside. So I did pick up and do a little dusting. Even though trying to stay ahead of the dust in the desert is a losing battle I keep trying to win. It was fun to have everyone in for a visit. After everyone headed home we warmed up leftovers for dinner and then Tom took off to play poker. While he was gone I took down and packed away our Christmas Decorations it seemed like a good opportunity to do so.  In the next couple of days we will take down the outside decorations. As much as we have enjoyed our time here on the 2nd it will be time for us to move on down the road.

We did not see the sun all day but just before it dropped
below the horizon it made an appearance.

We are glad you stopped by!
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.


  1. It was a brilliant sunset the other night and you got great pictures of the occasion. Those happy hours do look like fun and I'm sure will be missed when you two leave, but that's the RV way.

    1. Thank you, Doug.
      We will miss our time here and the Happy Hours when we leave but like you said, it is the RV way and it will be time for us to move down the road.

  2. You guys are all having so much fun together, what a great way to spend the holiday season when you can't be home with your family. We wish you and Tom safe travels and all the best for 2020.
