Weekend in Arizona

Friday night we had rain. We have never experienced rain here before. Man when it pours.  Saturday morning the air was fresh and the sun was shining! We looked for second hand bikes, but discovered we could buy new ones for less than second hand, so we walked 3 miles to pick them up.
We enjoyed a Christmas Latte from Starbucks...with Christmas Music!! (It amazes me how early they start the Christmas Music in the USA!)
We even bought helmets...
We visited a few Goodwill stores and picked up a picture for our new home. It cost a total of $4.00.
Saturday night...I think Arizona is one of the few states that does not have a time change...but I could be corrected on that!  So we missed out on an extra hour of sleep:)
Sunday morning we went to the 'Church in the Park'. 
 It is a wonderful informal gathering of many people from parks all over Yuma!
We spent the afternoon visiting a few of the Local Markets.

We are fortunate to be able to walk to two of the markets in the City! We were looking for bike baskets for our bikes but came home without them.
We did find a Vendor selling second hand books at great prices. I picked up some Hardy Boys Books. Hopefully the grandson's haven't read them...but for the price, we had to get them. They were $2.00 each.
Hubby was over joyed when he found a very old Mark Twain Book for $5.00!

  1. Sounds like you had a great day.
    I often think it would be just great if it would rain at night and then the days could be lovely. It usually works the other way around here!!!

  2. it sounds like you will love your new winter home! :) glad you already have bikes!

  3. What a great find on the Mark Twain book! There was a special on The Weather Channel about Yuma this weekend. :)

  4. So wonderful that you are visiting the States! Have a great time! blessings, Kathleen

  5. Looks like you are having a good time in the good old USA. Yes we do celebrate Christmas too early!

    We celebrated my husband's 65th birthday.


  6. Flora, it sounds like you two have found what you need to pretty close to your new winter home.
