This morning was a little warmer so we decided to sit out for awhile with our coffee. Deb and Riley joined us then the wind picked up and Riley decided to head inside before her sinuses started to bother her. The wind picks up quickly out here; one second it is as calm as can be and the next it is gusting. It was not to long after that we all headed in as that wind, also, brought a chill to the air.
We decided to drive over to Parker for 5 o'clock mass at Sacred Heart Catholic Church this evening. After Mass we made a quick stop at Walmart to pick up a few groceries. Then we decided to try the El Sarape Mexican Restaurant in Parker for dinner. Not bad food and the service was decent we would stop again if we were in Parker and hungry. What it was not was a restaurant that we would say lets go to Parker for dinner at El Sarape's.

of the mountains were hidden in dust.

The bottom left was the sky as we walked out of Walmart.
We were home with our groceries around 9 o'clock and after putting them away the rest of the night was spent relaxing. It was just another day living our lives and enjoying the journey we are on.

Somedays go by and if I do not have any pictures it is hard to remember what we did. I know we sat out for a little while but otherwise I am not sure what we did until later in the day. At around 3:45PM Riley, Tom, and I joined Deb in the Dogsled and she drove us over to LaPosa South LTVA for Happy Hour at Cheryl and Dave's. It was nice to sit out in the sun and just chat for a couple of hours. This may be the last time we will see some of these guys for this adventure so we were glad for the invite. Plus, we had another opportunity for hugs all around before parting ways.

|The sun had already slipped behind the Dome Rock Mountains|
when we got home. I aimed the camera on my phone to where
the sun sets and it picked up a little light and some pretty colors.
It was a good day.

Today started slowly and that was pretty much how the whole day went. Tom and I did drive into Quartzsite after lunch to run a few errands and stopped at La Posa South to fill our water bladder. We were back home in time for Happy Hour and that was pretty much our day.

We decided to test our Solar System to see if the adjustment the tech made helped. We never ran the generator today and watched a movie this evening. When we went to bed the batteries were at 12.4 and they held at that overnight. So it does seem to be doing better and we are happy with how everything is running at this point.
|There are a lot of Teddy Bear cholla in this area.|

At this point we started a short hike to the Horse Tanks. There will be more pictures in the next couple of blogs.
