Sunday, November 13, 2011 (Eagle View RV Resort, Fort McDowell, AZ)

We had a pretty laid-back day today.  After all the sightseeing we did in the Sedona area before heading down here...we figured we would just relax today.

After our usual coffee time, we did our exercises, showered and had breakfast.  After that we sat inside for was cloudy and had rained quite a bit last night.  I worked on our travel journal while Steve watched some programs on TV...still lots of post-Veteran’s Day shows on the Military station. 
We finally decided that we should get outside and go for a walk around the RV Park.  We walked the perimeter of the park and then checked out the swimming pool...

...stopped at the clubhouse...where they serve a free continental breakfast every morning...and checked out the laundry and fitness facilities.

After we had finished our “outing” we settled back inside...resuming our previous positions.  The Fort Casino is just down the road and the RV Resort offers free shuttle service so we thought we would go out tonight.  When we checked in, we were also given coupons for $15 each to play the slots and we also were told that it was “all you can eat” crab legs night at the buffet.  So we decided to have a date night.
Shortly after 5:00 we walked over to the office area where the shuttle pick-up is and using the direct phone, called for a shuttle to pick us up.  It’s just a short drive down Fort McDowell Road, across the highway and you are, the parking lot was full...a very busy place!  The shuttle driver said that business was just starting to pick up...I guess it’s pretty quiet around here in the summer time.  Must be all the snowbirds that flock south in the winter that brings in all the business!
The first thing we did was find the spot where we redeem our coupons for a $15 cash-card.  Okay, that’s done; we decided to go over to the Lucky Seven Bar where we heard a live band playing.  We sat up at the bar and ordered drinks...$1/glass of beer (albeit a rather small glass) and $2 margaritas...sweet!
It was a country band playing...Country Floyd, I think was their name...they were quite good...considering we have never been big fans of country least the old whiney stuff.
We had a few drinks and then headed to the buffet for dinner...all very tasty and good...not that big on the crab legs, though...just too much work and too messy for me!
After dinner, we decided to go try out our cash-card.  They only work on select slot machines....and needless to say, they really didn’t let us win much.  Steve had a bit more luck than I did...but then his winnings were gone...time to call the shuttle for our return to the RV Park.  Unfortunately, there was about a half hour we had another beer...really not enjoyed due to the fact that we were so stuffed from dinner.
The shuttle dropped us off right at our was just before 10:00.  After a nice Skype call with Rob and Angie, we headed to bed.  We had had a great evening out...we both really enjoyed it.  They are having “all you can eat” shrimp and prime rib on Thursday...we might just have to have another evening out (which would be a good thing...we are running low on food since I don’t want to go grocery shopping before we put the rig into storage on Saturday).
