We arrived in Yuma Wednesday at Southern Mesa RV Park about 3 miles as the crow flies from Mexico. Blue skies, warm temperatures and a couple of old classmates of Dick's all welcomed us but yesterday they changed their tune: did you bring this weather with you! It was rainy and cold all day. Today, though, we're back to what we'd like to consider our new normal - sunny and in the 70's.
Yuma's a surprise to us - palm trees, lemon groves, lettuce, broccoli and asparagus fields.We bought a sack of 10 grapefruit for $2 from a roadside stand and I treated myself to a date shake, the first ever. We going to ease into the warm here for a while.
I'll post some pictures when I get a chance.
