While in Q, we had more shopping to do, see Bob’s new air compre3ssor hose, our old one cracked in two pieces while we were using it at Imperial Dam. The goal today was to get all the tires aired up and install the Tire Pressure Monitoring System we purchased.
This is a Stink Bug. Since we were in PA and VA this past fall, we picked up a few of these creatures. About every week at least two crawl out of where they were hiding. We have gotten very brave about squishing their hard shelled bodies.
On this trip back to California we now sport Texas license plates, so we were quite sure we would be stopped. Actually we thought we would go through an inspection station after leaving Bullhead City, but this one caught us off guard.
The agent was very polite, asked to board the coach and see what fruits and veggies we had to declare. The two plants passed fine, then came the fruits, two oranges, a huge kiwi fruit and a half of a grapefruit. I told him the oranges were from CA, a friend had picked them from the Orange Grove RV park in Bakersfield. He was surprised at the size of the palm sized kiwi, but it passed as well. He also checked two sweet potatoes we had, all in all everything passed and we were on our way. Whew!!
Our first shopping in Bullhead City, AZ was to a pet store to purchase another Betta, here is Blue Max. The color below is a little off, but he is blue with some red in his bottom fin.
The reason we stopped in Bullhead City was to surprise our friends George and Kelli. We first met before Christmas while staying at Betty’s RV park in Abbeville, LA. We sure had a great time enjoying a couple of yummy happy hours.
Guess what is in this truck? Bee hives, two truck loads full, all securely covered with a green netting.
Along, CA 58 in California we spotted this Joshua tree.
Since there are times our Garmin Nuvi 1450 tries to lead us astray, I also now use a navigation app on the DroidX as we travel. So now Bob has three females telling him where to go!! Poor Bob!
You can’t really see what I am doing in the photo below, but I am using our yard hand clippers to do some free pruning for the park we are staying in in Mojave, CA.
One morning while staying in Mojave we were blessed to a beautiful rainbow show for off and on for a hour. Just how many photos can you take? Hummm, don’t ask!
In a day or so we will be in the Sacramento area to see our kids and grandkids, plus work on cleaning out and working on our stick and brick house getting it ready to sell.
In this special moment in Life…look for and find rainbows
