We arrived in Yuma at Cocopah Casino on November 4, the first two and a half weeks we enjoyed the gorgeous 30 c/ 86 f plus weather.

Finally the summer weather!
Our ice maker was working overtime, with all the ice-cold slushy drinks.
While one of us sat relaxing and reading a book, the other couldn’t sit still and decided to upgrade a hose that had a tiny leak behind the turbo.

It seems winter has now arrived in Yuma. This morning’s temp was much colder than we prefer.

😩 I don’t want to get out of bed!

Looking at Yuma forecast for the next week appears the ice maker needs to get out away and the kettle needs to come out.

Still not going to hear us complain about these temperatures.

Until next time friends and family, stay warm …..

It’s not always hot and sunny in Arizona

We don’t always bask in the sun when we are south, in fact it gets quite cool as soon as the sun goes down. Off goes the shorts, t-shirt’s and flip flops and on goes the long pants, bunny hugs, socks and shoes.

We have even been known to put on our winter jackets and a toque to watch the Super Bowl outside while we were in California a few years back.

This morning our phones were buzzing away, we have a weather freeze warning here in Yuma.

Guess today would be a good day for a pot of stew and fresh biscuits!

Even with these temps we can’t complain. Holy heck Batman, at least it’s not as cold as back home in Saskatchewan.

Stay warm our friends and family!

Cocopah Casino

We decided that Yuma,AZ would be our next stop as there is so much to see and do in the area. We decided instead of staying out in the desert that we would blacktop camp at Cocopah Casino just south of Yuma. The casino will allow you to stay in their RV parking lot for $6.00/night or $35.00/ week. This is just blacktop camping with no hookups. They do have level sites, security that drives around, and daily garbage pick up.

The RV sites are wide enough to have your slides out and be able to park beside your rig.

Unfortunately we didn’t get to cross as much off our list as we had planned, we did however spent quite a bit of time at the Foothills Animal Hospital in Yuma. Our little Miss Bella ended up with stuvite bladder stones that required emergency surgery.

The surgery went great, Miss Bella is doing fantastic and has healed quite nicely.

We did manage to take in some Yuma history which I will post in another blog.

We are hoping to make it back to Yuma later this winter to cross more off our list.
