Military Appreciation Day – Yuma, Arizona

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 22nd 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 was expecting to leave here recently, but I’ve changed my mind. I currently have reservations at Thousand Trails in Palm Desert, California, February 13th. Between now and then???? For the moment I remain in Yuma.

 

 

I just love the ability to change plans at a moments notice. As I tell everyone…All my plans are firmly etched in Jello!

 

 

Today’s subject: Military Appreciation Day…

 

 

Yesterday was Military Appreciation Day here in Yuma, Arizona. The following blog posting is from when I attended that event in 2015. The location this year was in a different location but essentially the same as 2015. The booths are associated with providing different services to all veterans…

 

 

Yuma has strong military ties which you can read about by clicking this link…http://www.visityuma.com/military.html

 

 

About three blocks of Main Street was shut off for vendors  and display booths. I enjoyed about one hour there talking to a number of other veterans.

 

 

On my way there I stopped atop St. Thomas Indian Mission Hill (see below sunset) and took a 180 degree panorama looking north. 1 is the motorhome parking location. 2 is the Colorado River. 3 is the Guardhouse at the Yuma Territorial Prison…

Today’s subject: Beautiful winter Skies Over Yuma, Arizona…

 

This blog was first posted in December, 2015…

 

 

The other day I mentioned Yuma, Arizona claims the title of the sunniest place on earth according to the Guinness Book Of Records which you can read about by clicking this Wikipedia link… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuma,_Arizona

 

 

So, clouds do not happen often here, especially during the Winter. But when they do appear, they are beautiful. Like yesterday morning about 7:30 AM…

Breath-taking beauty!

 

 

Just for the record, the winter 0f 2016-2017, like the rest of the west coast, is experiencing a somewhat , cooler, cloudier and rainier winter season. That does not mean that there is still LOTS of sunshine!  🙂

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was sunny and 64 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 63 degrees.

Another Neat Yuma, Arizona Sunrise

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 was expecting to leave here yesterday, but I’ve changed my mind. I currently have reservations at Thousand Trails in Palm Desert, California, February 13th. Between now and then???? For the moment I remain in Yuma.

 

I just love the ability to change plans at a moments notice. As I tell everyone…All my plans are firmly etched in Jello!

 

Yesterday we had another neat sunrise. At about 7:15 am, I looked out of my kitchen window and this is what I saw. Unfortunately, I’m parked at the eastern most edge of the parking lot and brush obscures my horizon line…

 

 

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…

So I climbed upon my motorhome roof to take the following four photos…

Finally, a look to the west to see the reflection off of the clouds…

And a bonus photo, yesterday’s sunset…

I just love the beautiful sunrises and sunsets in this area during the winter!

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was mostly cloudy and 70 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 69 degrees.
