Trip Pictures Part Two - Arizona

After spending a whir wind day and a half in San Diego, Ca. it was time to move onto Yuma, Az. I have to say I was absolutely fascinated by the cacti!

One Cacti...

Two Cacti...

Three Cacti...


Four! The mighty saguaro!

The guard tower at the Yuma Territorial Prison

More of Yuma Prison


A wee bit more of Yuma Prison

The mighty Colorado River, the view from the guard tower. The far side of the river is California

A pretty little yellow flower that Kathy and I discovered at the Yuma Crossing... it smelt heavenly!

This morning I had two medical appointments... how fun. My first appointment was 40 minutes behind schedule. That threw my whole morning off! I also took my car into the dealer, I needed the linkage of my windshield wipers replaced. I am relieved to say I have working wipers now! What a relief... it was downright terrifying driving home Monday night in the rain with no wipers! As usual it cost a pretty penny. I did make a little progress on Mini Cottages 8 while I waited... but not enough worth sharing since they had an Internet terminal at the dealer and I surfed the net for a good 40 minutes.
Today I got a start on Kathy's Sweetheart Tree RR, once I got home, its looking so pretty!

Great pictures, you have a wonderful record of your trip. Glad you got your wipers fixed. I've only had to drive in the rain once when a friend of mines didn't work, and you're right it was horrible.

Hey Dani,
Love the pics.
The pretty pink flower is a bougainvillea. I have some of those in my sunroom, but they're so nice in their native setting. Lucky you!
