It’s been a very peaceful, warm sunny week at Lake Havasu. No snow or rain or hail to report, just one nice warm day after another. Shorts and sandals are the order of the day around here.
Today it was a short hike up a nearby mountain with a good view of the lake and runway 14 at the Lake Havasu airport.
This little guy was lounging on the rocks and agreed to pose for a couple of photos.
Yesterday while hiking along the channel under London Bridge, I came across this group who were flying a fancy twin-engined R/C plane out of a parking lot just back of the beach. It was equipped with moveable cameras, and all kind of high tech communications. They had a virtual ‘mission control’ set up with more electronics, directional antennas, and computers to monitor the flight.
On the channel, the local outrigger canoe club was out touring, and I got this shot of both the Sherrif’s boat and the Havasu police boat on the water together. I imagine there are fights for this assignment!
In one of the parking lots, I came across this dog and it’s owner out for a ride.
Hailey gets to come along most days if it is not too hot for her in the truck. Here, she’s exhausted from watching me do laundry.
Back at home, she tests the reinforced window coverings mentioned in the last post.
A couple of views of the neighborhood at Craggy Wash. There is a large lizard that lives up here, but so far has been too shy to photograph.
There is also a group of small bats that come out every evening to do aerobatics while they feed on the flying insects, and of course the hummingbirds are always evident here, seeming more attracted to the yellow flowers on the area bushes than the many feeders hanging from area RV’s.
And of course the ‘tabby tiger’ gets out whenever she can to climb the cliff in search of prey.
Lots of RV rigs on the road today – most headed northward. I guess the great migration has begun.
I imagine we will be following suit fairly shortly, but we do not want to risk the foul weather that the Bayfield Bunch have been encountering on their final push north. I suspect that not many miles will pass before we find another location that needs further exploration. I would like to have a look at the new bridge by Hoover Dam for example, but not sure if there are any good boondocking spots in that area? I know there are further north on Lake Mead, but not sure if I want to commit to getting on the north side of the canyon just yet.
Seen on the back of a ‘Toad’ recently!
That’s it for this time.
