Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog


We shared a pot of coffee before getting busy. I jumped into the shower and then dressed while Marilyn cleaned the kitchen.

As she took her turn in the bathroom I made the bed and straightened the bedroom.

Bob & Janet brought their luggage over and we could tell that they were anxious to get going, for the flight back to Missouri.

All four of us piled into our truck and headed east toward the Valley International Airport.

We chatted continually and the time went quickly.

We drove by the Iwo Jima memorial and the Marine Military Academy where our friend, Chuck, used to teach Math.

We dropped Bob & Janet at the departure entrance and wished them a safe journey with hugs and a promise to pick them up on their return.

Marilyn & I were in no hurry to get back on this beautiful day.

The warm sunshine with temperatures in the low 80’s and a stiff breeze, encouraged us to linger, so we drove to the newly built Bass Pro store, where we sauntered around looking at different merchandise on display.

We purchased a couple of items and then drove over to the Kohl’s store where we found a couple more items we couldn’t live without.

It was nearly lunch time when we arrived back at the resort. Marilyn walked over to see if Trent & Teresa would like to go for lunch at the “Blue Onion”.

They were eager to go and offered to drive so we hopped in with them for the short drive to the restaurant.

We ordered the lunch special which was a delicious tomato basil garlic soup offered with half a sandwich.

Each of us had the soup, and then the sandwich selection.

Marilyn selected the shrimp pesto wrap, Teresa opted for the shrimp pesto po’ boy, Trent had a gyro sandwich while I chose the gyro wrap.

Everyone seemed quite happy with their selection and we returned to the resort in the awesome weather.

Marilyn and Teresa each went to their lounge chairs with a good book, while Trent took a walk and I did some chores.

I dumped the holding tanks, then swept out the truck and chose to haul our trash down to the dumpster.

I then spent some time inside, in the recliner beside an open window, the breeze steady across my face.

I am reading a book sent to me by a good friend from Uvalde, Texas. Charlie sent the book, “Seven Days in Utopia”, written by David L. Cook, PhD.

The book has now been made into a major motion picture starring Robert Duvall and Lucas Black.

I am enjoying the book!

Thanks, Charlie!

Marilyn & I collaborated on a dinner of chicken & noodles with mashed potatoes, and a veggie.

Tonight is movie night for us as we need to watch a couple of movies loaned to us by our friends, Trent & Teresa, so that we can return them.

Life is Good!
