Fun With Friends/ Camp Verde
Oct 27, 2015
|Jan and then Eddie joined us for coffee this morning.
When we went outdoors we noticed Mike cleaning bugs off his windshield. We chatted for a few minutes, then Mike walked over to show us his method for cleaning bugs off the coach.
Eddie and I were both amazed at the efficiency and the speed of making those bugs disappear.
When the demo was over, I took my truck to fuel it up for our trip on Thursday.
By the time I returned, it was nearly time for us to head off to Camp Verde for lunch.
Eddie and Mike rode with me while Sandy drove their car with Jan and Marilyn riding along.
We didn't expect the place to be so busy in spite of the fact that the restaurant is rated one of the top 100 restaurants in the entire USA.
We had to wait an hour to get a table for the six of us, but that gave us time to explore this place. Camp Verde was established in 1857 as an Army post where, for the next 12 years, the Army experimented with the idea of using Camels. They even brought Arabs over to the USA to train the soldiers in using Camels for transportation.
The horses were afraid of the Camels and that was part of the reason that the experiment was deemed a failure.
In any case, the food was great, as was the service, and we left totally packed.
In fact, we were so full that we weren't hungry when five o'clock rolled around. We had talked about having BBQ for dinner, but decided on a Happy Hour instead.
Jan fixed a delicious snack called Armadillo Eggs, and Marilyn brought some garlic bread.
The conversation and good natured banter made the evening a fine success.
It was around 7:30 when we were all back inside our RV's.
Game one of the World Series was on TV so that is what we watched. Go Royals!!
Life is Good!
