Boulder City, NV and Ft Mohave, AZ Feb 25-Mar 2, 2018

After leaving the San Diego area, we returned to Vegas and stayed at Boulder Beach Campground for 3 days and 2 days in Ft Mohave.  Time to visit family and friends before heading to Prescott, AZ for 2 months.

While we were in Vegas, I was able to help Brian with putting in some artificial turf in his backyard.  In this photo we hauled some base material to the backyard.

Indian Hills Camp, Jamul, CA Feb 2-25, 2018

We spent the month of February volunteering again at Indian Hills Camp near San Diego.  We helped out with painting 10 cabins, 7 signs and the Dining Hall.  We met a lot of great people.  It is such an inspiration being here and seeing all the good work being done for God and his people.

Servants on Wheels Ever Ready (SOWER) left to right are Dave & Gayle, Linda & Bruce, Lynn & Al, Melissa & Rick

Dave is steadying the ladder while Al paints the cabin wall.

The ladies were all invited to a Tea Party at Karla's House...I guess that explains all the funny looking hats (lol)

Rick made this really cool 'Cat House' birdhouse for Linda and I.  He did a great job!

Linda and I stumbled upon this great sand sculpture at Ocean Beach

All 8 of us took a 2-hour harbor cruise in San Diego Bay.  We couldn't have asked for better weather!

Linda had lunch with her friend Sonja in La Jolla

Linda and I met up with one of her photographer friends...Patti and her husband Steve.  They are from Cape Cod, Mass and are vacationing here in the San Diego area.

Boulder Beach Campground and Pahrump, Hesperia, Jan 14-Feb 2, 2018

We stayed at Boulder Beach Campground for 2 weeks, and then 2 nights at the Oasis RV Resort...and 1 night in Pahrump, and 1 night at Hesperia Elks Lodge.  Our next stop will be at Indian Hills Camp in Jamul, CA.

On our 19th wedding anniversary we rode on the LINQ High Roller in Vegas.  At over 500 feet, what a view!

We were lucky enough to be the only 2 people on one of the 28 cabins.  So, we had an unobstructed 360 degree view.  It was beautiful watching the sun setting and the LV Strip beginning to light up.

After riding the LINQ, we had our fill of hors d'ouevres at several different restaurants, including Lagasse's Stadium and the Brooklyn Bowl.  We also had some drinks and enjoyed entertainment at Gilley's and Virgil's Real BBQ.

It was a great way to celebrate our anniversary.

We had fun visiting Erik, Jessica and the boys.

Isn't William the cutest!

Jessica and Myles strolling around the campground

We had fun at Ken & Ruth's place.  Tim, Cindy, Brian and Terry celebrated with Linda and I.

The views are one of the reasons we like staying at the Lake.

15 days at Lake Mead was a great place to test our new solar panels.  They worked great!

Pahrump, NV Jan 10-14, 2018

We stayed 3 nights at Preferred RV Resort and 1 night at Tom & Debbie's place.  We stayed pretty busy the whole time.  

This is the China Ranch Date Farm.  It's a historic Date Farm outside of Pahrump.  A very interesting history here.  We bought some date cookies, and they were delicious.

We spent an afternoon here soaking in the natural hot springs of Tecopa.

Hanging out at the Casita at Tom & Debbie's.

Lake Havasu, AZ Jan 2-10, 2018

We stayed at Lake Havasu State Park, aka Windsor Beach.  It's adjacent to the canal where London Bridge is located.  We really loved this place.  The sites are spacious and they provide water and 50Amp power.  Nearly every site has a view of the lake...and it's walking distance to the London Bridge.  After Havasu, we stayed 2 nights at the Avi Resort (dry-camp) and visited with Linda's Mom and Ron.

With at least 26 scaled down replicas, Lake Havasu is home to more lighthouses than any other city in the entire country.  The west side of the lake has replicas from the West Coast.  The east side has replicas from the East Coast, while the area around the island boasts replicas from the Great Lakes.  It would be fun to take one of the guided tours.

We couldn't pass up the opportunity to paddle under the London Bridge!

Downtown Lake Havasu is also bustling with antique shops, bars and restaurants.

We rode our bicycles downtown and snapped this picture in front of this fun saloon downtown.

We went out with Doug and Michelle to see this guy - Harry Luge - at the Flying X Saloon.  He is a very talented Country singer/songwriter.

This is the view out our front door...actually our only door! (lol)

Boulder Beach, Lake Mead Dec 27-Jan 2, 2018

We spent a week at Boulder Beach for New Years.  We watched the Grandkids for a while...and had a lot of fun with them.  They enjoyed playing outside and enjoying the fresh air!  Even though we didn't have any electric or water hookups, we survived just fine.  We're planning on returning later in the month.

Waking up every morning to a new sunrise.

We really enjoyed spending time with Myles and William.

The boys are being silly!

These two get along so well with each other, and love playing together.

Will is so cute!

We really like some of the new campsites.  This one (site 63) is a huge pull-thru.

Boulder City Elks Lodge - Oct 27- Dec 27, 2017

We spent a total of 61 days here in Boulder City at the Elks lodge. That's a record for us.  And we were pretty busy most the time. Between catching up with Family and doctor appointments, it seems like the time flew by.

We won't be going too far.  We'll be heading back to Lake mead to ring in the New Year with Linda's sister and Friends.

So just a few photos of what we were up 
to during the last two months.

My Dad's Birthday Celebration. 
He is 83 years young..  We had lunch at Calico's in Kingman.

Back at their house for some Birthday cake.

We spent time hanging out with the Grandkids.

Myles was All Smiles..

While here we had a chance to head to the Las Vegas strip.
Every time we go down there it seems like a different city than we remember.  The Linq is a new area to hang out.  With shops and pubs and restaurants we would definitely like to spend more time down there.

We walked up and down the strip which took hours.
Lets just say we made our Fitbit step goal for that day. LOL

We didn't get to do as much hiking as we would have liked, but it was fun to get out and hike the railroad tunnels at Lake Mead. 

Linda enjoyed meeting up with a girlfriend she's known since 
she was 18,  She lives right here in Boulder City.

Christmas celebrations at Linda's sisters house. 

Brielle, Myles and Tristan.
Cousins being silly. 

The Grandkids pretty excited about Christmas. 

Celebrating Christmas with the Borghoff Family. Good food and fun games at Jessica's house on Christmas Eve.

Mike, Boone, Tristan and John...Making Merry

We spent Christmas Day at Brian and Terri's.
Good food and good times were had by all. 

We won't be gone for too long.  We will be spending the second half of January right back here in Boulder City.
