Lake Mead Cruise with RV Friends

12 March 2020

We rode with Phil and Denise to the Lake Mead Cruise Marina via Lake Mead Hwy and passed Las Vegas Lake. Very nice and scenic drive..our first time.

 The tour aboard the Desert Princess Paddlewheel very relaxing with views of the painted hills and basalt mountains. The trip is 90 minutes and takes you to the backside of Hoover Dam. They also offer a brunch cruise, dinner cruise and the 230 departue which we took. Our group gathered on the upper open deck. Unfortunately did not see any of the Long Horned Sheep. Someone said it was the birthing season. The Marina is located in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

February Come and Gone

29 February 2020

February come and gone affording more visits with friends, movies and dining out.

The month started out with a Super Bowl pot luck at Bill and Lorraine's in circle 1. A good time was had by all and the food contributions delicious. Got so involved with conversations forgot to take some photos.

On the 6th we had Red Rock Wash come out to wash and wax the motorhome and also clean the carpet. Paul did a great job.
Wish the campgrounds would allow you for a fee to wash. We may have to have them come again before we depart.

On Valentine's Day we went with good friends Rose Mary and Chuck to Bagel Cafe for lunch. Of course we had to get bagels and a huge piece of coconut cafe to bring home. Had a nice visit.

On the 21st the campground had a pot luck for Nascar and there was so much food. Nice that the campground does this several times a year. Gives you a chance to meet fellow campers.

On the 23rd we once again went to lunch with Rose Mary and Chuck at Lola's Restaurant in Town Center. On Sunday they offer Beignets with the brunch.

On the 26th we went to see "Call of the Wild" at Aliante with our group and dinner afterwards at TGIF. Only had to close my eyes twice due to the mistreatment of the dogs. The first movie was made in 1935 with Clark Gable and Loretta Young.a totally different storyline. You should do a search. Think I need to read the book again.

During the month John had several doctor appointments and I reworked our continuing itinerary thru 2020 and part of 2021.
We were supposed to depart here on the 18 March and spend 3 weeks in Coronado and 2 weeks at China Lake NWS in Ridgecrest, but due to Coronavirus John felt we should skip California and continue on to Oregon. We will now depart on 1 April. Sure hated to miss the beachtime in Coronado.
