We've arrived at home...

This is the view from our 'hill' this evening, pretty cool!


After resting a bit, we had a bite to eat before taking a stroll along the riverwalk. The weather was beautiful and there were very few folks on the path. Everyone seems to be gathered out front along the main highway where all the action is. There were several water taxi's running, providing transportation back & forth between Bullhead City and Laughlin, as well as a large double decker dinner vessel on the river.

We took our time and enjoyed ourselves very much. There were some mallards doing head stands in the river, they were cracking us up! We passed a newly married serviceman and his lovely bride. Larry thanked him for his service to our country and we complimented the bride on her pretty dress. These young men are a blessing to our country and it feels great to tell one of them so!

Continuing on we found it interesting that the path cuts right through the middle of Joe's Crab Shack! One of our favorite restaurants. Love the bbq'd dungeness crab. We might have eaten there this evening if we'd realized it was here. Ah well, maybe next time.

Eventually we cut out to the front of the property and joined the mass of humanity. Larry found a hit'n miss engine helping to make Trudy's Poppin' Johnny ice cream. You might remember we saw a much larger version running the sawmill at King's Gold Mine & Ghost Town up near Jerome. Moving along we joined a large crowd listening to a very heavy rock band. The crowd went wild for a Stone's tune & the lead singer did his best to impersonate Mick Jagger!

There was an interesting portable bar complete with blue neon lights. The roof folds down when they're ready to call it a day and actually becomes the sides of the trailer. Wow, a bar you can hitch up and take wherever you like. Interesting concept.

Of course there were folks in every shape and size, all interesting in their own way. People watching is always fun, don't you think. We finally found ourselves back in front of our 'home' and took one last quick picture of the lighted palms and American flag. What an enjoyable evening. The roar of the bikes will probably continue for most of the night but I'm sure we'll sleep well anyway. We're pulling out in the morning, heading for Vegas for a week or two. So we'll check in again once there. Goodnight...
