Arizona Sunsets and Camp Chairs . . .

Jan and I didn’t get up until about 9:30 this morning. Not unusual for me, but very unusual for Jan as she’s normally up between 7 and 8. But we both had a lot of early mornings and long busy days to make up for, so sleeping in really hit the spot.

Around 11 we all started talking about our plans for the rest of the day. Jan and Terry wanted to do the Yuma Indoor Market Place, and Chris Yust decided to join us, Nick didn’t want to do the market, but he followed us down to Mi Fajita to have lunch, and then came home afterwards while we headed to the market.

We spent several hours walking up and down the long rows of everything from jewelry to custom golf clubs, and remote control helicopters to tools.

Jan and I bought a couple of new camp chairs to replace our 5 year old bag chairs that recently bit the dust. And I found a new water filter that I was looking for, while Jan picked up some books from the used book store.

We finally headed home about 4pm, all pretty pooped. But Chris Yust and I still had work to do.

She wants me to get their website up and running to advertise the GMAC insurance and Good Sam products they sell, so we spent several hours going over the particulars of the new site.

Then about 6:30 everyone started getting hungry so we headed out to have dinner at La Fonda, a local Mexican restaurant that we wanted to try. But when we got there about 7:30, it was CLOSED.

What kind of Mexican restaurant closes on Saturday night? According to the sign on the door, their Saturday hours are 10am to 3pm.

Huh?  So we decided to take our business down the street to Burgers & Beer, a well-regarded local place.

The food was good, but the conversation was even better. We laughed and talked, teased the waitress, and then laughed some more. In fact it was almost 10pm before we got out of there.

But we sure had fun.

Tomorrow Nick and Terry, and Jan and I will head for Tucson for a couple of weeks, with a stop-over at Sofia’s in Gila Bend for lunch along the way.

We’ve really enjoyed the hospitality of Daryl and Cheri Lawrence who let us park on their lot for a couple of days here in the Yuma Foothills. And hopefully we’ll all meet up again in Celina, OH for the next Gypsy Journal Rally this fall.

Earlier in the evening before we left for dinner, I did get this great Arizona sunset shot.

Perfect end to a great day.
