Yuma, AZ

Saturday night before we were leaving Casa Grande, we had a delightful dinner with Bob & Maggie.  We have been traveling together for the last 3 months and we had some great times together.

Sunday morning we packed everything up and headed to the Gypsy Journal Rally in Yuma, AZ.  We have subscribed to the journal for about 8 years and enjoy reading it.  And we read Nick’s Blog almost everyday.  And he’s a down to earth fulltimer who always writes something interesting.

As we left Casa Grande, guess what happened? Yep, it started to rain.  It seems that every time we travel lately we have bad weather.  It not only was raining but the wind was blowing hard.  I had to really pay attention because a sudden gust against the side of the MoHo can push you sideways.  When we arrived we had to wait in a staging area while some other RV were late in leaving because of the weather.

When we finally got in, through a very narrow gate, we found something we really liked.IMG_1761 Real grass for our dog Pearl.  She was very happy, even with the rain.  We’re right across the street from the Marine Air Station.  It’s home to some Harrier jets and F-5s. IMG_1770 It’s like an alarm clock, but we think of them as the Sound of Freedom! They’re really not that bad because they don’t fly late at night.  We did get a beautiful sunset tonight.IMG_1771We’ll be here until the rally ends on Friday.  Thursday afternoon I’m giving my Wine talk, so we’ll see how it goes.  It should be a fun week.
