MAR 26th, left Imperial Dam and drove to Lake Havasu City.

Did a bit of touristy thingie in Lake Havasu.
Above is the London Bridge that was moved from London brick by brick and put up in Havasu.

We went on a bit of a cruise to the other side of the Lake on this ferry.  These townhouses are for people who are a bit richer than us.
Just gorgeous.  Right on the canal.
Camp site on the shore of Lake Havasu.  They sure pack them in.

A few pics taken at Imperial Dam, Az in March.

Our friend Don took us on a walk through a small canyon not too far from our campsite.

We went to visit the Yuma Territorial jail museum.

Getting close to going north time.

Have to mention that MJ did not catch a stripper but a striper.  lol.  Tks Betsy for pointing that out.  Maybe I should do a spell check before publishing.  lol


Yep, it’s getting time to roll north soon.  The temperature has been pretty high in the last couple week.  33 to 35 degrees C.  Thank goodness for shade.


Our friends Lynden and Charlie arrived here a couple weeks ago and their son Trent arrived a couple days ago.  sooo nice to see them.  Having fires, dinner, happy hour and what nots with them.  Real nice.


As promised, here are more pics of our trip to Los Algadones, Mexido.  One big flea market.

This blog will be made up of a mixture of stuff.


MJ catches her first stripper.

MJ went fishing down the Colorado River with one of our neighbours, Eric and caught her first  stripper bass.  Quite the happy girl.




We had friends here for a Hot dog  burn.




Went to LOS ALGADONES, Mexico with Eric (in his Prevost bus), Rick, Gord, Wayne, Lynn, MJ and me. 

It was very busy and had to wait a couple hours to cross back into the US.  So, we all went into a bar to wait it out.  Gord went into the line up about an hour afterwards and we met him about half an hour later we in the line up.  Thanks to him, we just sat and drank pop, beer, margaritas, margaritas, did I say margaritas.

The following pics will show some of the vendors and their goods.



Started this blog about a week ago, so thought I may as well publish it half done, because who knows when I will finish it.  So, more pics of Algadones later.
