Friends on the Desert

February has been filled with friends — old and new. It’s been great to see them all and catch up on their travels.

Pam & Gary drove in from Gila Bend and surprised us with a lovely afternoon visit. We don’t often see our Nova Scotia members so this was a special treat.

SKP friends Nancy & Cal arrived on Wednesday as did their friends Gail & Doug. For Happy Hour that day we invited Don G and some new boondocking friends Karen & Richard who are just about to celebrate their first year of fulltiming. Longtime Boomer friends Robin & Don also joined us.

We started about 3 in the afternoon and were still chatting away several hours later. What a great time!

Nancy made a delicious stew for supper for the 6 of us. We ate on the patio and visited and watched the moon come up. A perfect ending to the day.

Thursday started with one of Nancy’s great breakfasts on the patio — pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon (and a big pot of Cal’s famous coffee). Then we were off for a hike on the desert. On our way out of town several javelinas and two tiny babies ran across the road in front of us — what a neat surprise. Gerry and I have seen several javelinas before but none this small.

Although we haven’t had any rain in a couple of months, there is still enough moisture in the ground to bring out some spring flowers.

We enjoyed a late lunch in town and later (after some naps!) we reconvened for happy hour. Once more the moon lit up our visit. I brought the guitar out and played a few songs, including one I wrote this week. Always nice to try things out on a friendly audience. 🙂
