A Yuma, Arizona Sunrise And Reflections

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at the Paradise Casino in Yuma, Arizona. I expect to depart here January 10th.

 

Yesterday morning at 7:30 AM, I looked out my kitchen window and saw this sunrise…

Reflections Of An Early Morning Light…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Palm Springs RV Resort at Palm Desert, California. Mary remains at home and I expecting her to rejoin me in mid-January

Two days ago I caught a glimpse of red in the morning sky through the kitchen window just before sunrise at 6:15 AM. Since the way I’m parked the sun rises at the rear of the motorhome…I opened the door and this is what I saw…

ARRIVED HOME SAFELY.

DSC05364 (Copy)

We left Lake Minden north of Sacramento yesterday and arrived in Murphys at about 1:30. I walked the lake the night before without my camera and missed some great shots of two big catfish surfacing, mouths open, holding above water long enough for a photo. Dang. I should always carry my camera, I know that. So, I told Jim, we had to walk the lake again before we left in the early morning-with camera. Reflections on a “glass” surface.

DSC05365 (Copy)

Clear and beautiful.

DSC05380 (Copy)

The fish were feeding, and jumping and biting, but just try to get a photo.

DSC05376 (Copy)

A fish would surface, grab an insect and be under before you could snap the photo. I have multiple pictures of gray shadows in the water.

DSC05371 (Copy)

It is a pretty place, and peaceful here. Jim gets exhausted driving with one eye impaired. He has to concentrate so hard that we move very slowly. So, it was a lovely last night on the road.

DSC05381 (Copy)

I got home to my usual pounds of mail and then made the mistake of looking at the news.  What mediocrity we call news. Everyone is incriminating Obama because he saluted the flag with a cup of coffee in his hand. There are life and death issues to deal with and the news focuses on a cup of coffee?

10649873_10152395951021167_3421925196405342285_n (Copy)

Did the “newspapers” ever make a fuss about Bush saluting with his dog?  What crap passes for news. I used to give Jim a bad time about getting rid of his news feeds. I don’t any more. It is mostly garbage and good luck trying to tell the truth from the lies. Lies have become standard and accepted. Money to both parties is like a river, while very little work gets done by the people we elect TO SERVE US. What shame that we have entrusted our fate to legislators that  govern from where their largest donations come from. Corporate interests.

Different Shades Of Red…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Birch Bay RV Resort in Blaine, Washington. This location marks the furthest northern most point of our planned 2014 travels. I’ve been here several times over the years and always enjoy the area. Our departure date is set at August 12th.

DIFFERENT SHADES OF RED…

Last Thursday we got in the Bronco to go grocery shopping and there it was…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

The red light came on indicating the battery was no longer being charged. Who needs it???

DSC01134

I was able to drive it in this condition to Blaine, 5 miles distant, to the NAPA store and garage…

DSC01137

In about 2.5 hours and about $250 later, they replaced the 7-year-old battery and installed a new alternator. Red light gone and all is well once again. When events such as these happen, I do not begrudge them for both the motorhome and Bronco are only mechanical/electrical devices that work really hard to bring us to many wonderful places and experiences. Such is life…

On Friday evening, on returning to the motorhome after listening to some live music here in the park at 9 PM…I saw some other reds in the windshield of our motorhome…

Silent Wings Museum – Lubbock, Texas

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. She is busy with personal matters.

Last September during my eye exam at the Seattle, Washington VA Hospital I was told I have a large cataract in my right eye that should be attended to in the next year. My new doctor has made the necessary arrangements to have my eye problem corrected. I’m hoping to have my cataract surgery completed prior to Mary going to Turkey with her grandson on April 18th.

My new eye exam date is now March 19th.

Some extra photos today. Yesterday early morning, I saw a portion of Mary’s bottle wall being reflected in the motorhome driver’s outside rear view mirror…

A more relaxed mode..

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

To read about today’s photo album location, click this link… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silent_Wings_Museum

CLICK ON THE BELOW PHOTO. ONCE YOU ARRIVE AT THE PHOTO ALBUM, SIMPLY CLICK “SLIDESHOW” AND ENJOY!

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a sunny day at 68 degrees. Forecast for today is a sunny day at 69 degrees.
