We spent Friday with our friends from Lasqueti Island, Charlotte and Mike arrived around ten.They brought their i-pad with pictures of the BLM campground they are staying at in Parker about 35 miles from Quartzsite. They have a lovely site right on the Colorado River, which costs $5.00 per night. We may go there for a week before we head to Yuma.We headed into Quartzsite for lunch at Carl Jrs, This was the first time Skip and I have been to a Carl Jrs restaurant, we had burgers with guacamole they were very good but very messy, I wore half of mine.
After lunch we drove around a bit, they showed us the BLM campground at Dome Mt, that we had tried to find when we first got here, we were on the right road we just didn’t drive far enough. Then we parked and wandered through all the tents that were set up, I don’t think anyone bought anything, but it is fun to look. They dropped us off at our site about three and they headed back to Parker. I left my camera on the charger so I didn’t take any pictures, but they go to a lot of the same areas we do and we will meet up again.
Yesterday (Saturday) Skip wanted to go to a car show that was being held at the Casino in Parker. WE also wanted a few things from the Wal-Mart there. There weren’t many cars at the show, but there were some nice ones.
This truck was turning on a pedestal so I cut off the back
This was Skips favorite
I had never seen bicycles entered in a show.
The music was really really loud, especially when we got to the cars with the hydraulics that hopped up and down. I was ready to go after one tour around, but Skip wanted to look some more so I gave him the camera and I went to check out the casino. It was really smokey so I didn’t stay long, I put some money in the penny slots and within a few minutes I had won $ 137.00 I am not sure how, a whole pile of wild cards kept paying off. I cashed in, got my money from the cashier and I was out of there. When I found Skip he was ready to go, so we went to Wal-Mart for a few groceries, went for lunch on my winnings and headed back to Quartzsite.
Today we didn’t do a thing except take the dogs for a couple of walks and sit in the sun reading. Tomorrow we have to do laundry….such a hard life this is.
