We have arrived in Yuma at last. Well, actually we went past Yuma and landed in Winterhaven CA at a place called the Rivers Edge RV Resort.
Our plan was to stay at KOFA, the Escapees Park, but they were full to the brim. We were offered dry camping and getting on their list but there was no guarantee. Well, this girl has had enough of dry camping and was longing for electricity and water again…so we continued onward.
This park is nice, the lots are spacious with a cement pad, big shade trees and we were fortunate to be positioned next to the river as well as close to the laundry. There’s a bit of highway noise and a train once in a while, but the rent was affordable and we just wanted to settle in for a while.
The first night we laid low and the following morning we set out in search of what Yuma has to offer. Our first stop was at the branch of the public library, not that far from where we are staying. Here we found free wireless internet with large quiet rooms to use for accessing the net. There are also some study rooms you can use for a two hour period that may come in handy later when it’s time to do the taxes and longer projects. After we got caught up with our email, Facebook and reading the blogs we went in search of food.
On the way to lunch we dropped off Left Brain’s prescriptions at Wal-Mart where we were told it would be a two hour wait, so those will be picked up later.
We agreed on checking out Bubba’s for lunch. In my mind it was close enough to Bubbe’s for me. He had the pulled pork sandwich and I had a very nice reuben. After satisfying our hunger he dropped me off at Fry’s supermarket and then went across the street to a carwash. He’s wanted to wash the car (and the RV) for a long time after all the dirt and dust from our stay in Quartzsite.
Since I was at my own leisure I walked up and down each and every aisle – what a nice store! It had great selections and amenities. After shopping I went outside to wait for my chauffer to pick me up. The car was so shiny I wasn’t sure who it was stopping for me.
After putting away the frozen and refrigerated items I carried the laundry over to put it in the machines. It sure felt good to get everything clean again.
We have been living full time now for nine months. It’s hard to believe we’ve been on the road this long already.
