This morning was another 8 o'clock morning with clear skies but a cool wind out of the north. Just had my two cups of coffee and crackers this morning and skipped the remaining courses.
As I was putting the last of my things away, Deb came over and gave me my bracelet. Friends I had met out here had made the bracelet of precious stones for me a number of years ago. I wore it all the time until the elastic band holding it all together broke. I put them away, but this year when I left home I brought them with me in hopes of getting a new band.
While talking with Deb last night, she said she made things like that for her grandkids and could fix me right up. This morning I now have a metal wire holding the beads with a clasp to put it on my wrist. Fits perfectly! What a nice going away gift, Deb. Thank you very much!Finished my packing and Yuma wanted to say goodbye to everyone.

Before I left Yuma, I stopped and filled with diesel then we were on our way again. Made one stop at 2 o'clock at the first rest area so Yuma could take his walk.The entire trip on I-8 was on good road and was flat after getting over the Fortuna Hills just east of Yuma. When we got to Gila Bend we turned south on hwy 85 and 40 miles later we arrived in Ajo. As I got into town at 4:30, I pulled into the Belly Acres RV Park and dumped tanks and took on water.
By the time that was done and we got to Darby Well Road where I planned to find a nice site, the sun was getting low in the west.

As it got dark I just parked across from where Darby Well Road splits with Scenic Loop Road in a small pull-off area. I will stay here until morning and take the Jeep to look for a permanent home.
It's 8 o'clock and time to get some dinner and call it a day. Thanks for stopping by.
