We moved to Why, Arizona yesterday and today is going to be a strictly do nothing type of day. This post and the next couple are going to include catch up posts. I was hoping not to use that phrase any more but it is what it is and I am who I am...😎

having our morning mug of coffee.

light on the mountains to the East.
|The sun set behind the clouds this evening and I could see
some light in the clouds but no color.
It was a quiet day here at Coyote Howls RV Park and we enjoyed the quiet.

Today we took a ride. We left Roadrunner going north on US-95 then merged on to I-10 going west. We took Exit 1 and headed North on Ehrenberg-Parker Highway eventually connecting to US-95 going north in California. Turning East at CA-62 we crossed back into Arizona where we turned North on AZ-95. Our end goal was the Black Pearl Restaurant at Pirates Den Resort on Riverside Drive in Parker, AZ. After dinner we headed South on AZ-95 which eventually connects back to US-95 in Quartzsite and then home to Roadrunner and the Stinger "B". It was an enjoyable ride and the pictures below tell the story of our day.

|We made a brief stop at Wyatt Earp's Cottage in Vidal, CA
for a couple of pictures. Friends, Cheryl and Dave, had
mentioned visiting here so we thought it would be a fun stop.

It was a little pricey but the food was delicious and we
will definitely go back again.

and ducks swimming by on the river.

This was our last full day parked out in the Roadrunner BLM for this our 9th Adventure. We do like it out here and will be sad to leave but at the same time are looking forward to what the road ahead brings. Tomorrow we will head south back to Ogilby Road and park next to Deb and Riley in the same spot we left just a little over three weeks ago and we are definitely looking forward to our time there.
Today was a day to start packing up and get ready for our move. I, also, went into Quartzsite to pick up a few things at Gem World and Coyotes Market. The plan for the evening was sitting out and watching the sunset, a nice dinner, and a campfire.

we will be gone.
|Venus and Jupiter
|This is a collage of three pictures. I was trying to show
how quickly the black inkiness of the desert takes over
in just a few feet.
|First there was a glow over the mountains, bottom picture.
Then the moon popped up over the mountains, top picture.
|It is always amazing to me just how much light the full
moon brings to the desert.
It was a beautiful night and we enjoyed sitting out near the fire. A perfect last evening in one of our favorite spots parked out in the desert in Arizona.
