Arizona and Mexico
Our trip takes us west from San Antonio, through New Mexico, into Arizona where we stopped at the Painted Desert...
then on to Flagstaff, for a nice visit with our friends Sue and Jim Joiner, punctuated by a sudden change in the weather.
By the time we arrived at the Canyon, the temperature had dropped into the low 40's, with high winds. Though the Canyon was spectacular, the climate convinced us to head south a couple of days early.
In Phoenix, we were joined by our friends Pokey and Gumby , Tudy and Jake, Dick and Bettye , Martie and Alex , and Scott and Katie. After overnighting in the Clark-Wayland parking lot, we caravanned our RVs down to Puerto Penasco, Mexico, where we were joined by Jayne's dad Jere, his wife Katy , Jayne's sister Michelle and her friend Joe at Jere's beach house. The house became our base of operations, and we used the sand rail for fun riding and local transportation.
During the day we hung out , bought jewelry , played Train Wreck , fished , and blasted through the sand in the rail. Every night was a shrimp fest . With fresh jumbo shrimp at $7-8 per lb, who could resist? Couple grilled or sautéed shrimp with a drop or two of wine and good friends, and you have the makings of a party!
Alas, our stay was much too short, and the drive home much too long...
