February 12 to 18, 2024

Where are we?

Monday and Tuesday, February 12 and 13, 2024

When the sun goes down, it cools right off. When I use the BBQ, I turn on our patio heater to keep warm.

On Tuesday, Gaétan and I went around the park to pre-sell 50/50 tickets for Valentine's Day.
Michele made some hats for us for Valentine's Day. They have curlers on them. We look like we are getting ready for Valentine's Day.

For some reason, our hats increase our sales of 50/50 tickets.

Our son, Jérémy, has it pretty tough in the military. He is deployed in Hawaii for three weeks.

It is now all work. Jeremy and his coworker do some hiking around the island.

The view from the top.

The reward for the hard work.

Meanwhile, Kristin and Natasha visit Kristin's parents, John and Audrey.
On their way to the airport.

It is Natasha's first-ever airplane ride. She even got to visit the cockpit.

Having fun with Grandpa John.

And back to Yuma, for Valentine's Day, we have live music on the patio as well as two food trucks.

We have a dance in the evening.

We had a good time.

Thursday, February 15, 2024.

Today, we are going to the small town of Hope to visit our friends Jan and Jannie.
The first stop on our two hour journey is at Burger King because we have a discount coupon.
All this food for only $9.00.

When we got out of the Burger King, we saw this truck and camper... No windshield either.

It is about a two hours drive from Yuma to Hope.

We are not used to seeing the desert so green.

Even the cactus is full of water.

We have to go through Quartzsite.

Next, we take the State Route 60.

State routes are usually very good roads.

Our destination.

We had a lot of catching up to do. After lunch, Jan suggested a side-by-side ride in the area. Sure!
We took a break next to a mine called Blue Mine.

Another access to the mine.

This mine has three entrances.

As usual, Jannie cooked us a great meal. We are spending the night here.

We had coffee while watching the sun climb in the sky.

I took a walk in the park.
An area had desert art.

The park also has an 18 hole golf course. Even the greens are just sand.

The entrance of the park.

Jannie and Jan made a good breakfast.

This park has lots of cactus.

A Saguaro cactus with an Ocotillo.

Our good friends, Jan and Jannie.
Thank you for having us stay over. We will see each other again in a few weeks.

On our way back, we stopped in Quartzsite and the flea market.

Natasha is having a great time in the snow while visiting her grandparents in Regina.

Saturday, February 17, 2024.

Natasha is still having fun in the snow.

We went for a walk at the Arizona Market. It is like a flea market.

Michele finally finished the puzzle everyone hated.
To top it off, two pieces were missing. Michele took it apart and threw it in the garbage.

We are having ribs for supper.

After this good meal, we spent about an hour on the patio.

The temperature has been going up since yesterday. It has been +25 since yesterday. The nights are also getting warmer.
This is great.

Sunday, February 18, 2024.

A nice and warm day.

We joined friends on the patio after supper. We are all French.
As to be expected, we laughed a lot.

Until next time.

Life is good...
