Silver Strand SB, Coronado, CA Jan 26-31, 2017

This was another first...staying at Silver Strand State Beach.  It's quite expensive, and the campsites are anything but spacious...but the views of the Pacific Ocean are priceless.  We were backed up right to the beach, so our "backyard" was gorgeous!


The weather was great...and we were able to walk on the beach every day.  So relaxing!!




When we weren't walking on the beach, we were sitting...




Although the sites were narrow, they still had a nice view



We drove in to Coronado on our Wedding Anniversary (18 years) and walked all around the town and had a nice dinner at Coronado Brewing Company.

Sweetwater Summit Park - Bonita, CA Jan 22-28, 2017

This was our first time to Sweetwater Summit Regional Park.  It's near Chula Vista...in a town called Bonita.  So, it's very close to the city, but it feels like you are out in the country.  They have miles of equestrian trails and pretty large campsites with full hookups.  Unfortunately, the weather was quite windy and rainy much of the time, but we were able to get out and enjoy the campground in between rain showers.




Our campsite (31) would be great in the summer time, because we had plenty of shade.  If we stayed here again during the winter we would probably opt for site 129... or one of the others along the outer edge.  Those sites had sweeping views of the valleys.

The grass was very green everywhere in the area.  We suspect it's because of all the previous rain.  We also heard that San Diego is no longer in a drought, so that's great news for them!

Looks like it's time for another picture!

Imperial Beach Pier at sunset has some pretty dramatic views.

Boulder City, NV Dec 1 - Jan 22, 2017

It's great being back in Vegas for the Christmas and New Year Holidays.  Lots of time with friends and family.  We stayed in Boulder City all but two nights, when we stayed at Lake Mead for New Years Eve with Tim, Cindy and some other friends.  We also were able to make several trips to Arizona to visit with Mom & Dad Robinson and Linda's Mom & Ron.  

Winter-time in Boulder City at the Park.

Pahrump, NV - Nov 25-30, 2016

We went to Pahrump the day after Thanksgiving and stayed at Tom & Debbie's for several days and celebrated Thanksgiving with Linda's sisters and their families.  More great food, a campfire and a lot of catching up with the family.  After that, we stayed at Lakeside RV Resort for 3 nights.  They had a special going on...stay 1 night, and get 2 free!  That's less than $11 a day!!  

 
Lakeside RV Resort is a great place to stay in Pahrump.  They have a beautiful man-made lake with a walking path around it...and lots of trees! 
Every site has full hookups and most have nice views



Tom offered a great haircut for both Linda and me.  And Debbie even pampered Linda with a manicure....Just like a day at the spa!!

Lake Mead - Boulder Beach - NV Nov 22-25, 2016

After leaving Arizona, we headed for Lake Mead - Boulder Beach Campground, where we boondocked for several days.  It was a good chance to fire up the generator again.  While there, our grandson Myles stayed with us for 2 nights.  He is a happy guy and a lot of fun to be around.  We celebrated Thanksgiving at Brian and Terri's house again this year.  So much good food and conversation!  We really have a lot to be thankful for!

Myles, Me and Linda went on a bike ride from the campground down to the beach.  Since the Lake Mead water level has dropped so much, it was a long ride back up the hill!


Myles is already 5-1/2 years old and fun to hang out with!


Brian, Terri and their growing family


Our campsite #54 was pretty nice...with a great view of the lake from the window!

Northern Arizona - Nov 18-22, 2016

It's nice being back in NW Arizona to see our parents.  We spent 2 days at Linda's Mom's...and 2 days at my Mom & Dad's...Lots of time for playing cards, eating good food...and lots of good conversation!
We stayed here for 2 nights at the Avi Resort...in the Dry Camping area.  Not bad for free!

Linda, Ron and Mom waiting for our breakfast at the Avi.  We had a great time seeing them...and their beautiful new home in Fort Mohave.

We stayed 2 nights here at Zuni Village RV Park in Kingman.  It's a nice place that also accepts Passport America - so it's half the normal rate!

Me and Mom & Dad - It's always great getting back together to visit.

Prescott, Arizona - Nov 4-18, 2016

We've had a fun stay in Prescott.  My brother and his wife were in town for a few days, and it was great seeing them again.  Our other friends - Doug and Michelle were also staying in Prescott, and we always have fun when they are around.  



Brian, Terri, Linda and Myself spent some time in Jerome, AZ.  Jerome is a small mining town that was once home to about 10,000 people...but now is home to thousands of visitors.  It still maintains it's rustic charm and character of the old days.





The four of us went on a great little hike at Lynx Lake.  It's a great trail that winds it's way around the lake...and surrounded by lots of Ponderosa and Juniper trees






Downtown Prescott has Courthouse Square surrounded by gift shops, bars and restaurants.  It's a great place to walk and see the sights.


Linda and I hiked around the beautiful Watson Lake



The blue water of Watson Lake has a gorgeous contrast with the huge granite boulders







Thanks to my brother Brian, we found this great little pub.  It's called "Far From Folsom".  Doug and Michelle went with us on Election Night where everyone voted for 'Willie Nelson for President'.  I guess we got the next best thing...
Enjoying Dinner and Cocktails with Doug & Michelle!!


Our friends from Maine - Bob & Judy invited us to their place in Gold Canyon, AZ.  They are spending the Winter at a really beautiful RV Resort...full of non-stop activities. Lots of Fun!!
