QUARTZSITE: IN THE DESERT WITH FRIENDS

 

We have arrived in Quartzsite once again.  We have, however, never been to Quartzsite this early in the “season”.

We are parked in just about the same place in the desert that we were last year.  Good friends Jeri and Terry are here.  Denise, fellow Canadian from Newfoundland, is here as well as a new friend, Barbara.

Some spots in the desert have been “landscaped”.  We have one of those.  We have a rock bordered path from our rig to Jeri and Terry’s.  Creosote bushes have been bordered as well.  Several Saguaro line the wash.  The mesquite bushes seem greener.

We gather and talk, and talk, and talk.  Today is the US election and even though Doug and I agreed not to discuss it with our American friends, they want to.  We will see what happens.

Right now Jeri and Terry have gone into town and we are watching Duchess.  As soon as she realized that they were leaving Duchess rushed over and hid behind a chair.  So now, Duchess is here

It's good to be with friends but it's too early for me yet. I get restless and need to move on. At least I used to do so. We'll see how often I get the urge to move this year now that I have to do the work of moving on my own. :)

It is good to be with friends. We've never hung around the desert this early. It's been really nice. Right now we have a great site and great people to be around.

Glad you are all together again. Makes me homesick to be there. I remember in Jan. 2010 being there with all of you. What a wonderful time we all had.
Love the idea of landscaping the area with desert beauty. Looks wonderful.
Keep on enjoying!
