Where Are Your RVing Parents?

Yuma, Arizona      High 72 Low 58

The weather yesterday was a bit warm. Today it was ideal. Another hard day in paradise.

My mother in law has mostly been working on puzzles since she has been here. Below is an example of one she finished. She has been going for rides on her scooter but she feels cold fairly quick so the puzzles are her entertainment.

Cindy's Mom and sister, Linda.
Cindy had one of the ladies in the sewing group show her Swedish weaving. She has been trying it out and seems to like doing it. Just what she needs, one more hobby.
We have been enjoying the Park and all the activities. We both are way more active than if we were home in Utah.

Yesterday was the full moon. We found out from one of the campers in our Park about what they call Howling at the Moon. Whenever weather permits and the full moon rises in the evening, a large group of people in Yuma get together east of the Foot Hills and have a big party. There is entertainment and dancing. The singers were very good.

The party started out small when they  first started doing it, and it has gotten bigger for the last few years. The man that told us about it said that at first only 30 or 40 people came out and when he last went there were about 1500. They announced last night that this time was the most people they have had and they estimated about 3000 people were there.

It was about 1/4 mile from where we parked to the party.

There was a little boy dressed in a ware-wolf costume.

The main singer.
There are also some food wagons selling Pizza at one and sandwiches and hot dogs and drinks at the other.

There was a very long Conga line that had so many people in it that they could hardly move along. They also had a lot of people do the Hocky Pocky. Everyone seemed to have a good time.

Some of the other singers.

The only minor problem was it was too cloudy to see the moon rise. But that still didn't stop anyone from howling at the moon. At the time the moon was coming over the mountain, people howled at where the moon was supposed to be. Then everyone went home. We were home by 7:00. The party starts at about 3:00 in the afternoon.

So to answer the question of where are your parents........They are in Yuma, Arizona howling at the moon and having a good time.  

Thanks for visiting.
