Shopping and Laundry in Parker, Ken and Tom Took a Ride, Two Happy Hours with Friends!

Saturday, December 2, 2023

For the most part it was a quiet day in our neighborhood. We enjoyed a late coffee hour just before lunch. Then we came back together for Happy Hour and enjoyed some lively conversation till the darkness and the cold desert air chased us inside our homes for some warmth and dinner. It was one of those days that quietly slipped by in this place where we have found enjoyment spending time with friends.

The sun had slipped behind the mountains when I took the
time to walk out from our patio to take a picture.

Looking towards the north walking back to our home
I took this picture

and this one of the group.

Then I took these as we were sitting, enjoying 
the evening, and the Happy Hour Conversation.

The sky went from a golden orange to orange 
with some touches of pink.

Up late this morning, I forgot to set the alarm, we still headed out with fingers crossed we would make it to Mass in Parker. We did not, and we do not like going in as late as we were. So we stopped for coffee and I dropped Tom of at the laundromat to do some wash while I headed over to Walmart to pick up a few things including groceries. He may have had the best part of the deal.

The sun slowly making its way up behind the Kofa Mountains

as we make our way out of the Roadrunner BLM.

On AZ-95 north of Quartzsite the sun popped into view.

Looking across the desert floor

as the sun brings

light to the day.

Parker just ahead.

In the distance I could see a plane landing at their airport.

I finally caught this sign as we drove into Parker.
I keep missing this picture.
Not quite the whole thing but enough to say I got it.

Could this be a Human Bean Coffee Shop?

A pretty Christmas Tree at their community park.

Looking out at the Dome Rock Mountains as

we make our way home on the Pipeline Road.

Ken and Tom went for a ride in the Jeep East of Scaddan Wash.

The sun set tonight as we sat and enjoyed a Happy Hour with
Kim, Ken, and Deb leaving behind a lovely rosy afterglow.

Two Good Days with friends in the Sonoran Desert near Quartzsite, Arizona!

    1. I believe there is a movie theater in the Casino.
