London Bridge Lake Havasu and Lake Pleasant

posted in: California | 0
We have arrived at the London Bridge in the little town of Havasu City, Arizona and found the bridge complete with cool weather and pigeons. The only things missing are fog, the people with funny accents, spies, fast cars and insane traffic. All of which London can keep! So we would say this is the setting for an optimal visit.

There are no people around here at all, save the two cowboys trying to pickup on the cute sophisticated red head. She gave them their 8 minutes I figure, much longer than the 8 seconds they would get in the ring, but none the less it was a crash and burn. She went her direction the cowboys left in theirs. Based on what I saw, she was too much for the local boys and belongs in the knobs of the big city. The two guys; they have each other I guess, and had  probably better get their Dad’s truck back home and full of gas too.

This is the reason I am glad I do not own a boat. You can’t bring your boat from lake to lake any more with out risking persecution because of these things.  Lake Havasu has more of these than rocks! I figure the only way they could get from lake to lake as fast as they do is via bird. There is nothing like air travel for efficiency. The best way to get rid of these things, is make them worth money! I wonder if they are edible. Maybe they could be steamed and washed down with Tequila much like the oyster. Perhaps we could turn them in to a deep fried delicacy like the Rocky Mountains Oyster. In the end maybe the government will stop fining us for transporting them and start charging us to take them eventually leading to their being included on the endangered species list.

I put laundry soap in fountain a few times my self. When I did it, the soap suds reached the top and stretched down the road. Come on guys when you pull a prank, don’t go cheap!

85 is too slow for Quartzite! At these speeds, I doubt there are many law suites. He got around us just fine, and semi knew who had more to lose.

Travel Day again, headed to Lake Pleasant by Peoria, Az. Some really big object is in front of us, and is using all the road. One might want to always verify his bladder is empty before getting on the road!

What ever it is, it is big and requires half the Arizona Highway Patrol to move it.

We got set into Lake Pleasant Camp ground. The tree managed to survive riding in our office from Palm Springs to Lake Pleasant. I really expected total CHAOS!

Arizona greeted us with rain in hopes that we would feel at home. (Note: the ground gets soft in the rain, don’t drive off the highway in the rain! Even with the four wheel drive we were throwing mud and praying not to sink. The thought of calling the tow truck and having him share this fresh knowledge with us kept my foot on the gas until were back on hard surfaced highway.) Lastly, 3 point turns on the pavement work quite well.

Mama cactus and two baby cactus. If you see something else, don’t tell us. This is a family oriented web site.

We woke up to this little guy. I don’t know what kind of bird it is, but he is staring us down hard! We would have been nervous that he might be considering us for breakfast. We were glad to have the windshield between us and him. He looks as ferocious as a parakeet with the intensity of a Doberman.

These cactus are tall, like a tree. I hope I never fall from one.

Sarah has to work. The blue thing is a block of ice, we use them to cool our laptops.

She said the water temp. is somewhere between warm and cold leaning more toward cold. Hmm…

Sarah took a picture of Martin and Vicky and I. They are our Texas friends who happened to be in town and came up to see us. Spent the whole day. It was an honor to have them drive all the way up from the city just to see us.

This would be my next boat if there were no muscle laws.

Well, the sun is coming out just in time for Christmas. Looks like a beautiful Oregon Spring. What a wonderful gift from our father above.
