Woke up to this view from my bedroom window this morning.

Today was Bloggerfest 2016 near Quartzsite, Arizona.  The event was located about seven miles south on hwy 95 in the La Posa South LTVA (Long Term Visitor Area).

Dolly and I dressed in our best jeans, washed the dogs and off we went to meet other bloggers.  Some blogs we follow; but we learned of many others that are new to us.

The weather was overcast, but warm.  Perfect for an outside event.  No sunburns today.

Like a dummy, I never read the directions to the event.  I just assumed it was at the place we had it last year.  Got to Plomosa Drive seven miles north of Quartzsite and found no signs to Bloggerfest.  Finally, I pulled over and read the directions on the Our Awesome Travels blog and I saw the word south.  I knew right away, I was on the wrong side of town.

After reading the directions carefully, I knew where to go and off we went back through the mind boggling traffic in Quartzsite for the second time.  We arrived at 1:15, so we were barely late for the 1 PM start time.

When we arived there was already a large group gathered.  Fifteen minutes means a lot to this group.  They were well underway and ready to make introductions.

The first thing on the agenda was for everyone to give their names and a brief history of where they are from and years of travel and their blog (if they had one).

Introductions all around

Dolly and I met many fellow bloggers.  Fergie and Yuma got to meet new doggie friends.  I must say, Yuma wore me out trying to keep him out of trouble.  He wanted to meet and play with every dog there.

We had a great time and are looking forward to talking with our fellow bloggers online.  

Beautiful sunset.

    1. It was a nice time. If Dolly and I had passports we would look into joining your caravan next month.
      Maybe next year if you do it again.
      Will be following your journey.

  3. You might have been confused on the directions because in the beginning it was going to be at the old spot, but then someone suggested a place with a toilet.

    1. Thanks Jan. I'll use that as my excuse for not reading the flyer more carefully. Had a great time.

  4. So fun to meet Dolly and Fergie this year. What in the world were Barbara and I talking about that had me put my arms in the air. Too funny. Always good to see you and Yuma. So much energy and I love those ears.
