We spent a couple of fun days with our good friends JoAnne Ferguson, her daughter LeAnn, and son Mike. Thirty years ago, we all lived in Casper, Wyoming. It’s so great when you see an old friend that you don’t get to see very often, and it’s just like it was yesterday.
The photo below was taken after breakfast at Rick’s Restaurant and Bakery in Palm Springs. Kip was looking for a place with good cinnamon rolls. The one pictured was big and delicious! It took him two days to eat it.
The bottom picture shows the view we enjoyed from our RV site.
The Tram to the top of Mt. San Jacinto
We got off the tram at the top of Mt. San Jacinto and walked around to the different view sites. It was exhilarating and beautiful. The temperature at the top was about 20 degrees colder than down below. That’s why Kip and I are wearing our “now much in demand” Wal-Mart sweatshirts. We heard they are flying off the shelves. Queen Val asked me if we got the same color on purpose…probably.
The top pics were taken at a place in Cathedral City where we took the dogs to let them run. If you’re able to open the one on the left, you will see a Coyote running across the area that resembles a spillway.
The beautiful lady is JoAnne holding Lexi. The not so beautiful legs are Kip’s.. Top right..Kip is disconnecting everything. He has a lot of hoses and cords to deal with. I get the inside ready to go, and we both hook-up the Jeep we tow behind.
This morning we stopped and walked along the Salton Sea. It has seven times more salt in it than The Great Salt Lake. Cyndie had fun chasing seagulls. We made a quick sandwich for lunch and we were off.
Our destination is a campground at Cat Tail State Park near Lake Havasu. Below are the incredible things we have seen on the way.
Above is Frank Sinatra Ave., a grove of palm trees, and a vineyard. We also saw miles of lemon and grapefruit trees.
The old Bridge reaches over the Colorado River. We’re near Parker, AZ.
We’re getting close to the park and just in time. The picture on the bottom right shows the shadows are getting long, and darkness will come quickly. Tomorrow we explore Lake Havasu and London Bridge.
