...not as long as it had been during the "busy" season, thank goodness...
It was 10:30 by the time we had finished dumping and were heading out...goodbye La Posa South!
It was about noon when we pulled into Fortuna de Oro RV Park. Since we had reserved, we went directly to site 949, where we had been last year. I asked if we could do that and then return to the office to register later. Most RV parks have a big entrance parking area where you park, register and then go to your site...but not Fortuna de Oro, we learned that last year!
The thermometer was up into the 30's C/90's F as we set up...so happy to have full hook-ups to run the AC! We had a bite to eat and then headed off to Walmart...I had a major shop to do! By the time I had finished there, I decided our second stop could wait...Fry's for fresh vegetables and meat will have to wait for another day.
Tuesday morning we were off to Los Algodones, Mexico for my dentist appointment. Interstate 8 has some major road work being done, reducing it to a single lane in each direction, so we thought we'd follow Google Maps and take the detour route.
We were early for my 11:00 appointment at Bernal Dental Group but thought we'd stop in anyway to see if by chance, Dr. Bernal could take me early. No such luck...it was exactly the opposite...he was running about an hour behind.
So we decided to wander around the streets and take a look at the vendors.
I needed to have an old crown replaced...the tooth had already had a root canal, which was good. Another tooth just needed a filling...perfect! So he got started on the crown...once that was done, he did the filling and I didn't even need any freezing for that tooth (just the crown). It was a long afternoon but with another appointment made for the next day to have the crown put in, we were on our way to the border.
Some entertainment along the way...
The Colorado River on our way back towards I-8...
It wasn't so great when we got back to the trailer though...the air conditioner wasn't working and it was hot! At first we thought a fuse had blown but after Steve found it was still on he then went out to the power post outside and discovered the lights were out on our Surgeguard Voltage Regulator box. Just then a neighbour behind us said the power was out to parts of the park. Whew, thankfully it wasn't anything to do with our electrical...but sheesh, it was hot without the AC! Steve called the park emergency number and was told that maintenance was working on it.
So we sat outside where the sun was getting low in the sky and there was a bit of a breeze. Steve grilled burgers on the barbecue for dinner...then we continued to sit outside as it got dark. We saw the lights go out on the next loop over and figured that's not good, but about 10 minutes later just after 7:30 all the power came back on...yay!
My dental appointment Wednesday wasn't until 1:30, so we had a relaxing start to the day.
There was a long line up of cars waiting to cross the border back into the States...they had entertainment...
Needless to say, happy hour at the pool was over by the time we got home....drats! There had been a band playing for entertainment today...oh well, we at least got to one of their happy hours!
