New Year at Yuma

After San Diego, I headed back to Yuma to join up with the WINs at the same piece of BLM land behind the VFW that I stayed at in November. It was a lot more crowded this time, with about 100 WINs joining in.

We danced almost every day. Our favorite is "Keepin' It Country," who play 3 times a week at the VFW. Notice the train going by in the background -- added entertainment!


I enjoyed watching the hummingbirds, and playing with my new camera.


One day we went on a 4-wheel drive trip, that ended up being one car and lots of ATVs.


Usually when that happens, its hard for the car to keep up, but Carol was fearless.


We went over the mountain to the east of us to the little town of Wellton for lunch.


New Year's Eve we started out partying at dusk at our circle area.


Then we headed over to the VFW for finger foods and more dancing music from "Keepin' It Country."

Bagpipe Bob entertained us during their break -- those WINs never stop dancing!

Well, now I am impressed. That hummingbird picture is terrific! And the one of the four of us is pretty good too.

Loved the hummingbird photo. Always enjoy the bits of music too. You and Phil COULD dance a little closer.

Linda and Terry--

We were getting ready to do a fancy complicated set of turns. (Yeah, right....)

Hey, is that the photo I took (with your camera) of you and your sister (plus sweeties!)? Very cool!
