We had plans this morning, but before leaving, I decided to see if the White Lion would start after a night's rest. About 8:15, I went up to the front and turned the key. To my amazement, the engine turned over and it started. What am I going to do? I'm thinking now, it's a starter problem. Maybe the hammer against the starter did the trick. Thanks to my commenters, we may know the problem. That's something to work with, but at 9, I shut it off hoping it will start again later.
Right at 9 o’clock, Tom and Deb, Celebrating the Dance, Deb and Riley, On a long and lonesome highway.... and I were heading to Yuma for a visit to the Yuma Market Place. Poor Yuma was in for a long day guarding the White Lion.
We had an enjoyable time walking around the many sales booths and even had some coffee. We were early, so there wasn't much of a crowd.
We were on the way home before noon, when someone had the idea we should head down to Los Aldogones for brunch. It was just about noon when we arrived.

By Noon, the town was hopping with street vendors and busy shop owners. We walked for a bit, then it was time for a siesta. We stopped at a very nice outside food and beverage place. The place had music and beautiful colors everywhere you looked.
|Before brunch beverages. Several, I think.|
The next place, Tom and Deb had been to before and Tom said there was a barbershop right next to where we sat down.Since I wasn't drinking, I went over and tried talking to this pretty young lady about cutting my hair. Luckily, her partner could speak some English, and we decided on a trim.Our Journey.

Yuma was so happy to see us all when we got home. He ran to everyone's place and we met up at Tom and Deb's place for one last chat and then the day was over. It was a busy day, but fun for everyone. We had a little bit of everything today.
That is a beautiful sunset. You travelers had quite a day if it. All the pictures of Los Algodones are so colorful and vibrant. It's hard to believe you had to go to a foreign country to get a haircut! Great that you finally tried some native fare. That's quite an interesting ship at the Yuma Market Place. Its amazing that you met some fellow RVers while sitting in a restaurant in Mexico.ReplyDelete
We had a full day with lots going on. Haircut makes me look a little cleaner but not much. We have fans everywhere.Delete
I came by for happy hour but only Yuma was around! Gave up and went to watch hockey, from my new camp a mile to the north!ReplyDelete
Sorry we missed you Ivan. We hopefully will see you today.Delete
It was a fantastic day. It was fun meeting Diane and Andy, always interesting to meet fellow bloggers. Yuma looked fine and well rested when we got home. The trim looks better after you hacked it some more. LolReplyDelete
I worried about Yuma and glad he was okay. We did have a fun and interesting day.Delete
Did you happen to see the fabric store at the Yuma Marketplace? Yessirree ... that's where I'm headed at the end of January!!! I love that place. The haircut may not have been the best, but I'm betting it was cheap!!ReplyDelete
I'm afraid I wouldn't notice a fabric store if it hit me in the face, Nancy. :) The smile on the young lady's face was worth the six bucks.Delete
You all had a busy day but fun! Might be another two years before you get your hair cut! Looks like it all turned out ok and you're looking good!ReplyDelete
I hope not Steve. I think I'm at the end of the rope with long hair. Getting close to the time when I get a "regular".Delete
You all make me smile. What a fun day!ReplyDelete
We had a great time. It was off the cuff kind of day.Delete
Looks like an amazing time, of course those margaritas are a nice addition LOL. Food looks yummy to me, but of course I love mexican dishes! You're looking very handsome with your new cut! Glad the US let you back over! What kind of ID are you supposed to have if not a passport?ReplyDelete
We did have a different day with the just dropping into Mexico trick. I didn't have my birth certificate with me and that would have been the extra certificate they needed. Mexican food is not really my cup of tea, but for a change it was okay. When in Mexico, do as the Mexicans do, comes to mind.Delete
a fun day for sure! Nice to meet fellow bloggers. Well, the haircut is a start, Doug! Nice! Maybe you need to consider a passport! :) The food looked good.ReplyDelete
It was a surprising place to meet fellow bloggers. You just never know when or where. I agree. A real haircut is not far off in my future.Delete
Great meeting you all today! What a nice surprise.ReplyDelete
