This post is a continuation of the previous post "The Park is Ours!"

Seasonal Ranger Ronnie, and her husband, Richard, invited Jeff and I, along with Jim and Jan, over to their house for Pizza, Drinks, and meeting new friends. 

We met Ralph and Pat, and Larry and Jeanine.
All four of these couples meet up in Lake Havasu each winter. 
Maybe we will join them this year!

A couple days after Ginny left, Jeff's cousins came for a visit.  AND... Cousin Dave brought his boat!  What a treat!  We watch boaters come and go but we havent been able to go out on the lake.

Some decided to take a swim break... but not me!

Then one more stop on the ride back...

Floating Toilets... how cool is that!
and Jeff had the "privilege" of helping to clean and dump them,
a few days before.  There are 2 of these on the lake.

When we came in, we had another fun treat! 
Our new friends, Larry and Jeannine, brought their Sea-Doo's to the lake
and we all got a chance to try them out!

This was a first time for Jeff and I. 
Infact... to ride a Jet-Ski or Sea-Doo was on our bucket list!

After all the lake fun, we enjoyed some time together at our camp,

Jeff showed Dave pictures until Dave finally admitted he had seen enough!

We thought we would play cards and dice games, but the pool and hot tub back at their motel
was sounding really inviting... so we let them go.

The next morning, Dave and Wendy took their boat and went home.  FINE!

But Chuck and Christine had a cabin rented at the main park,
and two friends were joining them.
Laurie and Cindy, mother and daughter, arrived mid-morning,
 so we all enjoyed the day and evening together at the cabin.

And that was it for our company since we've been here.  We enjoy all the get togethers with family and friends (old and new)... but we also savor our time alone.

Jeff continues to throw a line out in the water... but has yet to catch a fish.
He says its just a time of contemplation.

My Mom and Dad came through yesterday on their way to Canada
 to visit my sister,
 so we met in Prineville for breakfast.

There were some things they forgot...
but I was relieved to hear that their passports were not among the things they forgot.
So on to Canada they go!


  1. boy for being alone in the is looking mighty crowded!!

  2. You two have been having a great time with family and friends. It looks like everyday is a party! I have never heard of Floating Toilets! What a cool idea but I wouldn't want to clean them. Your parents look really good! Enjoy the ride.

    Many diseases are caused when our body is not in the correct balance.

    Nowadays, maintaining a balance with our busy lifestyles can be quite challenging. The quality of foods, a variety of diets and supplements can be overwhelming.

    What we need first and foremost is a balanced diet that is more alkaline than acidic. That way our organs will function properly, and our skeletal health will remain strong.

    Nature has provided us with a humble little seed, the quinoa, which is a powerhouse of nutrients. Queens Quinoa- Grain & Flour is the first naturally grown grain that can help us to maintain an excellent health.
