RV club friends from Vancouver Island, Bev and Dan, have wintered in Mesa and we got together with them a few times. We took them on a road trip last Saturday exploring some of the back roads to the southeast of Florence. We took a picnic lunch and enjoyed a peaceful drive. Very few other vehicles out there and the flowers were coming on nicely.
This week will be hectic as is usual for our last week in the park. Properties have been selling quickly this year and several of our friends have decided to give up their winter homes mostly due to age or health issues. Tonight is our last ATV club potluck. Today is probably my last club ride of the season. Aileen and I hope to get out once more before we put the RZR to bed for the summer.
Aileen was thrilled to see this Desert Tortoise up close and personal. She had been wanting to see one for years and suddenly here was one in front of us.
Good year for poppies
