The desert fun continues. Though the temps remain higher than advertised, it’s hard to complain. Particularly when the mid-day highs are mitigated simply by finding some shade.
It’s too hot for hiking but still … we manage to find some fun.
Wednesday, Jeanne, Barbara and I visited the Farmer’s Market in Old Town Yuma.
Barbara and Katie find a nifty tee.
My sole purchase is an intensely delicious $1.50 taco. !Muy bueno!
Later we dropped in at Best Buy. Barbara left with an iPad, me a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Then, of course, we did the mandatory Wal-Mart run.

Meanwhile back at camp, Jim and C.B. work to replace one of Jim and Gayle's damaged solar panels.
Yuma Proving Ground
Thursday was an amazing day and I sure regret leaving my camera in its holster. In a meet-up long in the making, after 30-something years, I finally met John’s old college pal, Jim. After a nice lunch and an all-too-brief attempt at 3 decades of catching-up, Jim treated Debbie and I to a VIP tour of the airfield that Jim manages at the Yuma Proving Grounds. What a thrill! We plan to return to the museum next week.
Yesterday, 5 of us girls headed to town once more for a few hours of strolling the massive Arizona Marketplace. Replete with vendors, browsing the covered shops was a perfect way to spend the day.
The market has lots of 4-legged customers.
We have more heat-resistant activities planned over the next few weeks.
