This morning when I woke up it was 33 degrees but felt much warmer inside. I believe the very light wind had something to do with how nice it felt. I even got up at 7:30 and went outside to catch the sun rising over Palm Tree Mountain.
Sunrise at camp.
Had a big breakfast of bacon and eggs with half a grapefruit and milk and OJ. Tasted great. I was really hungry.
Felt tired this morning, so didn’t do anything. Just rested. Yuma puts up with resting for awhile then he starts wanting to go places. I’m trying to read blogs and keep Yuma happy at the same time. He always wants attention making it hard for me to get things done. Spoiled brat, I think!
Did a lot of resting again this morning. It was just so beautiful out this morning, I couldn’t get motivated to do anything except lay in the sun.
The other day when I was using Google Maps to find out how far it is from Yuma to Quartzsite, I saw Bloggerfest on the map. I guess this event is getting famous. It made it on the map!
Around 2:30, after a big lunch, Yuma won and we hopped in the Jeep and went. Not to Quartzsite. Not ready for that yet. We turned south on hwy 95 and drove to Stone Cabin about 10 miles south of here.
I think it was our first year out here, Dolly, Fergie and I stopped for some lunch. This man had opened the Stone Cabin and had a tent to the side of it for an eating area. He cooked us great hamburgers and we sat in the tent and enjoyed our hamburgers and curly fries with a coca cola. He was struggling to make a business out of this lonely place on hwy 95 halfway between Yuma and Quartzsite. As you can see, he didn’t make it.
I met this young couple with four young children, ages one to seven. It reminded of Dolly and me many years ago. They were from California. Yuma is impressed with these two little hikers.
Yuma and I left our little hikers and their Mom and Dad and headed to the top of the ridge to see if there was a photo op up there. And there were.
Got back to camp around 5 P.M. and we’re ready to call it a day. Blogging time and dinner and then off to bed for us. This may be the first day I will eat three squares since beginning this journey. No wonder I’ve lost weight.
Almost missed a beautiful sunset.
See you later.
