We're all settled in now at Fiesta RV Resort, where we'll lay back and enjoy our winter. Arrived on Wednesday the 23rd..
There are a lot of activities in this park, and if we get bored it will be our own fault.

On Saturday (26th) Doug and Ginette arrived en-route to their winter place in Desert Hot Springs. They are friends from home (Kamloops) whom we met through Steve and Doreen (you've seen pictures in previous blogs). They pulled their new rig into the site next to ours, and although our park doesn't usually rent by the night, they accommodated them with hook ups for two nights. We had a great visit. Even took in the 2 for 1 Buffet ($14.99) at the AVI Casino for all-you-can-eat Alaska King Crab legs. The guys went crazy!! They ate a LOT of crab legs.
We played at the casino, enjoyed the pool and the hot tub, and Ginette and I even took in the Pychic Fair at the Aquarius Casino.

Today we arrived at our winter destination - Fiesta RV Resort in Bullhead City, AZ. We'll be here until March, when we'll pull up the jacks and travel around a bit before heading home.  We had a very enjoyable, uneventful trip. Leaving home on October 17th, we put in a nice day and spent our first night at a nice Rec. Site along the Salmon River in Idaho called Skookumchuk. The second night we were in Jackpot, NV.  We arrived early (around 2:30) but decided we'd spend the night and catch a show. Motown Legends were at Cactus Pete's Casino and the tickets were so reasonable, we just had to go... $20.00 each and that included 2 drinks each! They had great entertainment with appearances from Michael Jackson and KC (pictured above with myself) Tina Turner (pictured to the left with Michel) and also Stevie wonder, Gladys Knight, Chuck Brown to name most of them. It was a good evening.
Next day we ended up at the Pahranacat Wild Life Preserve, where we spent two days just relaxing, and I took a few pictures.....it's a nice little place, a well kept secret, because it's a quick turn when you see the sign coming from the north.  It's easy to miss.

So that brings us into Vegas on October 21st (day 5 of our journey). Took in the Strip in the evening, but decided to leave the next day - only one day in Vegas. That's enough!! Now we can relax for a few months. Thanks for reading - I'll try to keep you all posted on what is happening with us.... Bye for now!

Our last trip to Kelowna before we head south for the winter. We spent a nice evening with Michel's parents, went out for dinner, played some cards.

This time we had the opportunity to visit with Michel's son Richard and his family. It seems like work and commitment has kept us from seeing them this summer, but we had a great visit (though short) and we got to meet baby Halle for the first time. She is now 5 months old!

Richard and Shannon - with their two youngest children, Addy and Halle.
