Even on a day where there is a misty rain and the clouds are looming, the parking lot is full.
As we walk across the covered bridge, we can see a bunch of new construction going on to expand the place. Harold and I noticed that there must have been a hurry for the worker to leave on friday, because he or she just dropped the tape measure and the welding hat and left. Somebody must have yelled "Beer time"!!!1
There were lots of people inside and they have found lots of ways to allow you to spend your money, from T-shirts and hats, to great food, and lots of beer. There was a band playing most of the time we were there as well.
And look who we ran into!!! Rick and Kathy Rousseau from the blog Its About Time . They are camped just to the east of us on Plomosa Road and are taking in the boondocking rally there. Nice to see them again.
After we bought the T-shirt we decided to have something to eat. Down in the bottom should be a good spot we figured.
But first a trip to the bathroom. We had heard about the open air style bathrooms here and they sure were. From the men's you could stand and see down over the mountain. That was a little bit of a different thing.
But Sue said that from the ladies you could look down over the mens and she did observe one young gentleman proudly having a pee!!!
We found a nice spot under an umbrella to have some lunch and a chat. Lots of empty tables now because the light rain was making people leave.
Then it was time to leave. We were just not in the party mood today so off we went.
These rigs look like the right thing to be out here in the desert mountains. I bet they ride smooth.
They even had a little of my type of history up here. Old tractors always interest me.
And a parting picture for the photo album. We are getting good at this.
Still a bit of rain on the windshield but not enough to slow us down on our trip back out the bumpy road.
And a quick stop at Walmart in Parker where I noticed that they are RV friendly. They even have a sign welcoming RVers.
Somebody didn't make out so well on the highway last night. The car was completely burned out but the weird thing was that it was up on jack stands, like they had taken the tires off before it burned. I could just picture the car on fire and the guy yelling "hurry up Ethel, get the tires off, they are brand new!!"
The view from our window tonight:
