Happy New Year!

 This morning started out beautifully with just a breeze and blue skies.  Got up around 7:30 and had my breakfast outside on the lounger.

Yuma loves the sunshine too.


Checked with Tom and Deb (Celebrating the Dance ) to see if they would be around 1 o'clock  today and if I could stop by.   Everything is a go.

I could see smoke billowing from across the sand dunes to the west.  So large it blacked out the sun and looked like an atomic bomb.


From what I've learned it is fire from a garbage dump in Mexico.  Lots of pollution!

Arrived at Tom and Deb's place and they had guests from just up the road visiting.  Turns out they are Yoopers as well living across the upper peninsula on the west side. They had been following Deb's blog and had first met in Texas. 

Deb, Tom, Cathy and Shane

Shane  and Cathy are in the first year of travels to the southwest and learning where the good places to go are through following their blog.

Tom had gathered tons of firewood to make a huge 🔥 this evening but wouldn't you know it. The wind kept getting stronger throughout the afternoon and looks to stick around this evening.

I noticed a nice remote place near their area, so decided because I've been in one place for 11 days I would move over there.  I do have to stick around till the 7th so that's a good place to move to be nearer friends.

Yuma and I headed for home at 4 o'clock to get dinner going and my blog finished so I can relax and watch a little TV this evening.

Wishing all my family and friends a wonderful 2021 😀


Happy New Year! 😀
