Yesterday and Looking Back at February

 Friday, March 18, 2022

As I typed today's date it hit me once again how quickly the time is flying by. It will not be long before we turn the nose of the Stinger "B"  east and start the trek back to Michigan but for now we are enjoying this bonus time here in this place in the desert.  I had mentioned in the last post we had planned on starting east on the 17th of February but dental appointments interfered with that plan. When a plan does not happen we can dwell on what will not be or we can accept what is and enjoy what will be. Those "detours" as I mentioned have been some of our best times. This one is no exception. Being back at Roadrunner BLM we have a found a beautifully quiet and peaceful place we both needed even if we did not realize it. 

Today's Sunrise

You may get tired of my pictures of these views 

but I will never get tired of sitting out and enjoying them.

Nor will we ever get tired of seeing these little guys show up.

 We enjoyed a wonderful Happy Hour today.

Gayle, Patsy and Bill
We were expecting Patsy and Bill plus hoping Nancy 
would make it. What a nice surprise to have
Gayle and John join us.

Two of the Saguaros near by. 
My phone updated today and when I went to put together
a collage I found this choice. 

The sun setting on our day.

A last little burst of light as the sun sank 
behind the mountains.

Another good day to file in the memory book!

(Part 1) of adding February to our blog. I have several pictures I want to add to our memories from out time out off of Ogilby Road. I do love sunsets and sunrises, though I do not always make it up for the sunrises, and the sunsets out on Ogilby never disappoint so there will be quite of few sunset pictures.

We spent the first couple of days of February parked out at Roadrunner BLM and before we left to head down by Yuma we went out to dinner at Silly Al's with Patsy and Bill.  I remember we talked about what a thoroughly nice evening we had enjoyed as we drove home afterwards and we were happy for the opportunity to get together before we headed out. 

A nice memory. 

The sun had left the sky before we got back home 
but there was this lovely color still on the horizon.

Today was a travel day and we were up and moving early. After we got the Stinger "B" ready to go Tom headed into Quartzsite to top off our diesel then make a stop at the RV Pit Stop to dump, get water and top off our propane tank. While he did that I made a quick stop at Coyote's for some groceries and made one last stop at Gem World. Then we met back out at Roadrunner to hook the Jeep up and head south. We were on our way to Ogilby Road but had one stop to make first at the Arizona Market Place to drop off our old front window drapes.  They needed our old ones as a guide for making our much needed new ones.  

What I thought at the time was our last sunset at
Roadrunner for this Adventure.

While I was waiting for Tom to get back out to Roadrunner

I took a couple of pictures of the

Dome Rock Mountains.

Finally here comes the Stinger "B".
After hooking up the Jeep we were off.

The Border Patrol check is closed 

but they are still there.

Sorry about the dirty windshield but this is my
favorite view between Quartzsite and Yuma.

I always enjoy the views 

as we travel between Quartzsite and Yuma.

You cannot tell in the picture but the Ocotillos looked green.

Once we got out to Ogilby we unhooked the Jeep and took a ride to visit friends, Cathy and Shane, to say hello and then we checked out a few spots to park. The final decisions was where we had been parked in December. We had a good travel day and after what turned out to be a longer then planned day it felt good to be parked and settled for a couple of weeks.

We were up and moving early this morning, also. We were expecting company after lunch and I wanted to finish getting things set up inside. It was to windy to set up our patio area today and besides with the wind it would be to chilly to sit outside. 

The sun coming up on our day.

Shirley and Ken, stopped by for a visit this afternoon. It had been almost two years since the last time we got together so as you can well imagine there was a lot of talking going on as we caught up. The afternoon sped by and all to soon it was time to say our "see you laters". Just as they were getting ready to leave Ken remembered to take a selfie. He got us all in and we are all smiling. Thank you, Ken. I usually think about a picture as friends are driving away. A couple of hugs and they were off. 

Another memory day to add to our collection.

I am not going to pretend I remember what or if we did anything today. The pictures tells me we did sit out for Happy Hour. I know I use the phrase often, I never tire of........, but that is because it is true😊. The views out here as the sun comes up and goes down are beautiful.

The shadows stretching across the desert floor 
as the sunsets.

I never get tired of this view or

the sunsets.

Since, I put these together in a collage I am going
to guess I took them all at sunset.

More of those views beautiful views I mentioned.

The Ogilby Hills in the distance.

Imperial Sand Dunes 

The Cargo Muchacho Mountains at Sunset.

The sunsets out here

never disappoint.

A little visitor as the sun disappears from our day.

We had a soft rosy afterglow this evening.

Then some more color appeared where the sun had 
disappeared earlier.
