Today was a cloudy day with some wind. It was still warm.
I saw this truck in one of the parking lots.

This morning we drove to the parking lot for Algodones.
Cindy wanted to see the Christmas decorations, which were pretty much non-existent.
I only saw one Christmas wreath on one of the shop doors.
When we got there the very large parking lot didn’t have
near as many cars in it as has been there in the past. But we are here 6 weeks
earlier than we have been in the past.
There were still as many vendors trying to sell their stuff
as usual, only not as many people.
We must be too early for the vegetables and strawberries
that have been for sale like we saw in the past.
Cindy wanted to see if there was any pottery for plants for
sale, which there was. If we bought them, I wondered how we would get them to
the car, but they assured us they would help get them to the gate, and then we
could use their dollies. We didn’t buy any of them today, but will wait until
next fall. I have also been told about a Mexican Flea Market here in Yuma,
which we intend to check out. We wouldn’t have had room to buy any of the large
pots anyway because of Cindy’s Mom’s scooter, which takes the whole trunk.
|Cindy liked this one and some smaller ones to match, but we will have to wait.|
While we were there we had to try out the shrimp taco’s
which were as good as last time. I noticed someone eating a very large tamale
and asked them how it was. The lady told me it was very good and I will
probably try one next time. We noticed a few changes around the town, including
a cover over the eating area. Also there was a new wall in the central part by
the City building which made that area seem a lot smaller and seemed to make it
more congested with all the vendors.
At one of the stores there were lots of piñatas, some of
When we went to leave, there wasn’t a single person in front
of us waiting for customs, so we were able to walk right through.
On the way out we got to see a man dressed like Mrs. Clause
and Santa was also coming in. I took their picture and didn’t notice what Santa
was up to until I looked at their picture later.
|Santa's having a good time!|
We had an enjoyable time visiting Algodones today.
