It was a quiet sort of day and when I look back on it I am not sure I will remember exactly what I did with the morning and early afternoon. Around 2:00 I heard from friends Jeanne and Tony that they had arrived and could see us, the Stinger "B", so we knew they were close by. So Tom took a look and thought he could see them just down the way so we took a walk to say hello. Coming back we could see the group of friends we are parked with sitting in a circle so we knew Happy Hour was in progress so Tom grabbed our chairs and we joined them. We met Keith, a friend of Patsy and Bill's, and Oreo, his dog. He arrived today and has joined our neighborhood. Happy Hour as always was an enjoyable time filled with conversation that just seems to flow easily as we sit in the Arizona sun. Around 5:00 that sun starts to make its way down in the west and takes its warmth along. Heading home we could still feel a little of its warmth sitting out in our patio area. So we sat for a short time as the sun continued its journey down behind the mountains and I snapped the pictures of that journey below.

We started the day before the sun was up in the sky and there was still a chill in the air. We headed over to the Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show, aka "The Big Tent" around 8 O'clock in order to be able to get a parking space in the nearby parking lot. The gates open at 9 and as you can see in the pictures below we were not the only ones there. It is fun to be there opening day even with the crowds. Plus, there is free "stuff" and if you have ever been to a fair or large event like this you know what I am talking about. We were back home before noon but I am sure we will make at least one more visit later in the week when there will be less people to try and walk around. There are a couple of things we would like to get a better look at but today it was almost impossible to get close to a lot of the booths.
|Doesn't she have some beautiful eye lashes?
|Leaving the show and heading back towards LaPosa South
the traffic going north was bumper to bumper for a few miles.
|Looking at the pictures I am thinking I need to look for a
|different location/angle to take them from. Though beautiful
it does look like I used the same pictures.
|Just a touch of the pink was left when I looked out.
Today was a good day we had a fun time walking up and down the aisle in the tent and around the outside. The sun was out and we could feel the warmth as we enjoyed our Happy Hour. Around 5 we could again feel the chill in the air as the sun was lower in the sky and it was time to pick up our chairs and head home. Our patio was still in the sunlight so Tom and I sat out a little longer watching the sun slip out of sight. I am writing this Saturday evening and will post it in the morning. I had a message while I was writing this blog and I do believe tomorrow, Sunday, is going to be a great day.
We are glad you stopped by!
