We're back home in Queen Creek, Arizona. The weather is absolutely beautiful - bright blue sky, sunny and warm, with just a breath of wind. The desert is incredibly green. I'm at my computer desk, looking out my window and observing a little gecko as it scurries along our cinder block fence. This has not escaped the attention of Champie the cat, who is clearly fascinated by this strange little creature. Terry is watching the Flames hockey game while floating in the pool, beer in hand. It's nice to be home.
We've been doing a little looking for places to rent for next year. Judy and Joel will for sure need accommodation for a month, and we are seriously thinking of not taking the RV down, but instead renting a place (the economics make more sense depending on how long we stay - the jury is still out on that one). Terry, Judy and I took a road trip to Lo De Marcos to check out a house on the beach that was available for a very reasonable price.
After we set up camp in the RV Park, we unloaded the SUV and did a whirlwind tour of nearby San Carlos so Judy could see how lovely it is there. We stopped for a margarita and to watch the sunset at the 'Soggy Peso' beach bar. Magnificent sunset and lovely ambiance, but we almost froze to death! You are definitely out of the tropics and back into the cooler desert air that far north.
Brenda and Adrian happened to be staying at the Hotel Playa de Cortes RV Park as well, so we enjoyed a visit that evening and breakfast in the hotel with them the next morning. We then carried on with our plan to be home to Queen Creek that evening.
