Christmas has come and gone and life keeps on going. We went out for dinner at the Cocopah Casino in Yuma with 4 friends on Christmas day. We did get our feed of turkey. It was very good.
Temperatures here have gone down a bit, but is quite nice still when the wind dies down.
These three first pictures show where our trailer is now situated. We moved from the first spot where we were because it was too windy up there.
MJ baked a corn bread in our Sun oven. We use it to cook everything from cookies to meats. We love it. All we do is put the food in and the sun cooks it.

Ya Ya, we have to do it at least twice a season. We did have a perfect reason to do so. We couldn’t use our Skype at the second site, so we had to get where we could call our brothers and friends.
We had to upgrade our solar system because our current system wasn’t adequate to work properly with the sun being so low in the winter.

Turantula at our neighbours house.
Another small canyon that Don took us to, just a short ways from here.
Sam and Jill, did you sell big blue in Yuma, lol. Saw this truck going down the street and had to take a pic of it.
Lemon tree, very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet, but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Hundreds of sheep clearing out the unwanted grass.

Yep, we had visitors from BC here a couple days ago. Ron and Roberta, friends we had not seen since summer of 2004 came to visit. Got in touch on Facebook and voila, we got together.
Yesterday, Wednesday, we went to visit Denise and the “Pand” as she pronounces it in her Newfie accent. To the rest of the world it is a Pond. Quite a nice spot where she is.
Today, Thursday, Nov. 22 is the American Thanksgiving. The section of the park called Hurricane Ridge has organized a turkey feast, where someone cooks a turkey and we all bring a side dish to share. Called pot luck. yummy.
Burros, they are soooo cute.
Sunset on Don’s Inukshuk.
A couple has these two wonderful parrots.
Trevor with his Yurt. Go and google yurt, you will get lot more info than what I can give.
This duck or goose has a tuft of hair on the side of his head. Can’t find him in my bird book, maybe this is a feather malfunction……. Can anyone help with a name?
Some kind of heron, I would say. Gerald, Janice and Doug, one of you should know.
Denise’s rig, and campfire.
Yep, I’m cooking potatoes and chicken in my Cobb grill.
However, when we sat down for dinner, the potatoes were not cooked.
What up wit dat, Denise, this is the second time you serve us raw potatoes…….
Scenery from Denise’s coach
There is that bird again.
Smoke from fire at a food processing plant on our way to the “Pand”. Smell at the campsite was not too nice, but bearable.

Yep, we had winds gusting at 29 mph and cold. Today, it is cloudy and 19 degrees. Are we complaining, noooooo. It is still better than rain.
When the wind comes up here, it is strong enough to take the horns off bulls. No, really, I’m serious. lol
We have been taking our walks up and down the hills around here. We follows the Burro trails. Get to see neat stuff.
