It's almost Christmas. This year it will be just another day for us. Nothing exciting or interesting or fun, just another quiet, pleasant day.
When last we spoke we were getting ready to break camp and leave Lake Havasu and travel a short way to our next stop in Desert Hot Springs, California.
It was a nice, uneventful drive on a very familiar route with views of the Colorado River along the way.
We arrived at our site at the Catalina Spa and RV Resort about a week and a half ago. Since then we have driven to the grocery store, once. We understood that. since we were coming into California from another state, we would be required to quarantine for two weeks. Evidently no one here worries about such things. We do, however, so we limit our exploration to the aisles of Von's and Stater Bros. and will do so for our entire stay. We won't take part in any "activities" at the resort, and won't enjoy the warmth of the hot mineral pools. We'll sit in the sun, read, do little projects around the house, cook and generally live our lives as "normal" in 2020.
This resort is not as full as we've seen it but there are still plenty of people here. Our site is perfect for us.....Mount San Jacinto out the windshield and the desert behind us. To either side are sites that, evidently, Canadian's usually take for the season. Needless to say, they're empty now so it's lovely and quiet and safe.
We have plenty of welcome friends. So many that we often have to duck our heads during second cup and/or happy hour for fear of being struck in the forehead by them as they do their thing.
