Saturday was a pretty uneventful day. Steve and I got out for a walk and ran into Barb out walking Daisy, so she joined us. We had a good walk...2.65 miles today.
Back home, Steve was about to work on cutting the U bolt ends in the cargo box on his quad...but it started raining. We actually had quite a downpour...all while the sun was shining. Weird!
When that was over with, he hopped on his quad and rode into town to pick up some more cutting wheels for the dremel...then got to work. While he was doing that, I puttered around inside, worked on a blog, and got dinner going in the crockpot. After that, I spent the rest of the afternoon knitting.
Sunday morning we were ready shortly after 10:00...we're going to the Desert Bar today! We were going with Ray and Deb; Jim and Barb picked up Les and Sue...and Harry and Vicki had just arrived this morning and joined us as well.

We were going to ride our quads into town to the 'Shade Pro' booth to order an awning for our fifth-wheel but we had run out of propane in one of the tanks this morning, so Steve loaded the tank along with another one that he wanted to top off into the truck and we drove in. First stop was at Arco to fill up a few gas containers, then onto the Pit Stop for propane and fresh water...and finally Shade Pro.
Mid afternoon, Cec called...they were on their way. And a few minutes later, we watched as a red jeep made it's way over...followed by two more jeeps. Our friends, Alan and Cec popped by for a visit bringing with them two other couples that wanted to meet us. We have met up with Alan and Cec every year (sometimes more than once) since we first met them in Alaska back in 2013.
This year, however, they are not staying here at La Posa South. Instead they have only stopped for a couple of nights over at Dome Rock and made a point of coming over to see us for a visit. Their friends, Daryl and Danielle, and Trevor and Leanne stayed and visited for a few minutes and then headed off leaving Cec and Alan and us to have a good visit.

We quickly put the chairs away and got ready to head across the road...Deb and Ray have invited us for dinner. Yes, Deb seems to like to feed us...and we love to eat her delicious meals!
Freya and I relaxing before dinner...
It was a beautiful day Tuesday...for a road trip to Alamo State Park. Ray and Deb picked us up at 9:30 and after filling the fuel tank, we were on our way heading east on I-10. We took the exit to hwy 60 going northeast through Brenda, Salome...and then at Wenden, we turned north on Alamo Road.
Thirty-four miles later, we arrived at the park...
On the way to the lake, we passed Don's Cactus Bar in Wenden....and decided that it looked like a good spot for lunch...so after we had finished our tour of Alamo Lake, we headed there.
As it turned out the restaurant and the bar share the same building but are two separate businesses. However, we were able to order food in the restaurant and sit outside on the patio of the bar with the food delivered to us. Deb and I shared a mushroom swiss cheese burger, Steve had a bacon cheese burger and Ray fish and chips...the burgers were good, but it looked like Ray's fish was "packaged from the freezer", he did say it was good though.
We were back home at around 3:00...thanks for the tour, Ray and Deb!
Although I don't think it was something Steve really felt like doing, he decided to dump our holding tanks. This is the only time of day now that the dump station isn't very busy. So he spent the next two hours taking care of that. While he was busy, I worked on our blog and then decided to uninstall and reinstall our external hard drive that I use for backing up our laptop. For some reason, it had stopped working. That worked and although a little frustrating, I eventually go it running again.
It was after 5:00 by the time we sat outside with a cocktail and watched the sun go down behind the mountains...the end to another very fast day!
