We're Back at our Happy Place off Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, California

After spending several days at the Paradise Casino rv parking lot, in Yuma, we moved out off Ogilby Road where we spent most of last winter.  We usually don't mind spending time at Paradise because that casino is right in town and it makes it easy to do shopping and laundry and such, but saturday they started burning trash or something in a pit near the rv parking area and it got pretty stinky so it was time to leave.  We left Paradise around 4:30pm and raced the sun to get out into the desert before it set.  Phew, made it in time to take a few pictures.

Not quite a full moon.

Be back soon.

What We Did on our Thanksgiving Vacation

We went home to Northern California for 2 weeks at Thanksgiving time.  While there we opened our storage unit to see what we had kept when we down sized out of our house.  The first picture is when we first opened it up.  The second picture is what was left with after two weeks and 5 trips to the senior center with donations.

We rented a small uhaul trailer and moved what you see here to an even smaller storage unit in the Yuma area.  I had rented a unit before leaving Yuma and we left the car there in storage so we could tow the trailer back south with us.  The northern california unit was 5' x 10', now our things are in Yuma in a 4' x 8' storage closet.

And to keep the spirit of downsizing going I downsized my laptop computer.  I went from a 5 pound MacBook Pro to an under 3 pound MacBook and I love it.

The smaller lighter laptop is much easier to carry and move around, which I do a lot.

We're back in the Yuma area for a few days then back to the San Diego area to take storage things to my daughter, then back to Yuma to have a few things done to the rv and go to the dentist in Mexico. 

We've run into a couple of friends, Bette in her Winnebago and Beverly in her red Lazy Daze,  we haven't seen them since last winter in Quartzsite. Always nice to see friends along the way.

By for now.
