Mittry Lake near Yuma, Arizona
I could hear the wind this morning when I woke and that is never good. Looked outside and it was cloudy. Looked at the temperature and it was 53 degrees and that was good. At least it is not chilly to the bone out there. Going to get up to 67 degrees this afternoon. Can't beat that.
Got up and had another slow breakfast and read blogs and wrote my comments. I thought about going into town and getting a haircut,
but when I stepped outside, the sun was popping out and the skies were now a puffy white and blue. Still a breeze, but not bad. Decided to skip the haircut. What's another month?
|Now that's plain scarey.|
Yuma and I decided this would be a perfect afternoon to take a little drive and get some ice cream. I have been a good little boy for over a year and with my great glucose readings lately, I decided it was time to splurge.
We headed North to Laguna Dam Road and took a left towards Imperial Dam Road. I think I pass into California somewhere, but see no signs. We passed a pretty little lake,
and then Imperial Dam.
As we were rolling along beside the canal,
I saw several prime real estate properties.
|Comes with a fancy boat too.|
There is our destination--Imperial Date Gardens.
|Bet you can guess which one's mine!|
We then drove just a little further up the road to Cloud Museum while we ate our ice cream. I've taken the tour before, so we just looked at the stuff at the entrance.
Happy New Year to family and friends! Hope 2020 is another great year.
See you next year!
Oh, wow! That is awesome, Doug! What beautiful rocks you found! Thank you and happy 2020!ReplyDelete

Happy New Year Doug and Yuma. Ice cream is a fantastic way to celebrate a new year. I'm really hoping to see sun again. Way too cloudy up in Apache Junction.ReplyDelete
Thank you. Happy New Year to you two. I think the sun will bless us this new year.Delete
My cousin had a whole lot of dates to mail out to family. She said she bought them at the Nunez Date Farm. Where? After checking, it was the Imperial Date Farm. Google the info on this date farm and the Nunez family. It's a nice story on the possibilities available to us when you work for it.ReplyDelete
I will. I've been stopping by there for a number of years now and always find it relaxing. Happy New Year!Delete
Your pictures as always are wonderful. Great last sunset of 2019.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year to you, Dolly and Yuma! May 2020 be filled with love and joy.
Thank you Deb. I wish you and Tom the best for 2020. My new camera is waiting for me this New Year's day. :))Delete
Dates are actually healthy for you as well as tasty.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year to you and your entire family.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
Than you Rick. Happy New Year to you and Kathy. May 2020 get you back to the Southwest again.Delete
