Four Days in January Near Ogilby Road

Time has a way of just slipping by so peacefully when we are living in the quiet of the desert and out here parked just off of Ogilby Road that is what is happening. We are content to enjoy our time and wish the days would stretch out longer. The quiet of the mornings and the evenings with only the occasional sound of the long trains going by in the distance are wonderful. In between there is time spent with friends watching the sun go down, sharing our days, and the normal conversation that takes place between those that share a love for this lifestyle. As always there are the every day tasks to be taken care of yet there is still a contentment that being parked here brings to our days.

I had missed the sun rise but snapped this one a little later.
I know there was something on my lens but still wanted 

the picture on the blog.

The sun coming up

and bringing its light

and warmth to our day.

The contrails in the sky over head add their beauty to the sky.

A little after 3 o'clock Elva and Jerry drove over to sit and enjoy dinner with all of us parked over here. Not long after Doug and Yuma arrived, they brought their motorhome as they will be joining the neighborhood.  Deb and Riley brought burgers with the works and salads over along with some banana bread Riley had baked. Elva brought desert and I contributed a couple of salads. If you are guessing we ate well you are right.  We moved several times following the sun but the conversation and laughs easily flowed and never wavered or stopped as we moved.  It was a lovely evening that lasted until the sun dropped behind the horizon.

Deb asked a woman walking by if she would take some
pictures for us and she very nicely agreed.

Not long after this picture of the sun leaving the day.
The evening chill set in and we said our good nights.
It was a wonderful day to tuck into our memory  "box'.

The sun coming up on another day.

The wind was with us most of the night and
continued throughout 

As we were heading out to meet friends for lunch
we could see Doug resting in his chair.

Linda, Len, myself and Tom (I remembered to take a picture...😊)
We met this couple back in December of 2015 when we parked
the Crusader in the site next to them at the 

Saddle Mountain RV Park.

The friendship that started there as continued throughout the years and we get together once or twice when we are all in the Southwest. Today we met for lunch and then followed them to their lovely new home, and who knows next time I may remember to take pictures of it and their wonderful views. We always have such a fun time catching up. How lucky to have been assigned that spot back then.

sit and enjoy the evening.

The last glow on another day worth remembering.

Slept in today until just after 8 o'clock and the sun was up in the sky before I stepped out the door.

The same picture as above with the camera's
photo illustration effect on.
I just liked the look of it.

I was playing with the different effects

and snapped these. This is something burning in Mexico.
Probably garbage.

The sun leaving our day

and some of the color 

it left behind.

darken with the aid of the flash.

We ended our day in a circle chatting away with Deb, Riley, and Doug near the Igloo. The wind was still with us and as the light disappeared so did the day's warmth. Time to say good night to a day enjoyed.

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

  5. Your string of days has really caught the relaxing affects of life RVing in the desert. That picture of Riley and Yuma is priceless. Those two have a silent connection.
