Friday, May 10
“Okay, poopies. This is going to be a short walk. Get your business done and we’ll go back for breakfast.”
We start out on the campground loop at Sand Island Campground, Bluff, Utah.
Well, looks like our neighbors left early this morning. I wonder what their site looks like. Bridget, Spike, and I snoop around the campsite and follow a path that goes to the river. Before I realize it, we’re embarking on a riverside hike downstream.
Spike takes his first soak of the year 2013!
A maze of dirt roads leads to a few boondocking sites.
By the time Bridget, Spike and I return to camp, we are starving!
After breakfast I take a bath and wash my hair. I’m outside letting my hair dry in the sun when friends Geri and Chuck pull up in their truck, towing their fifth wheel! I expected their arrival this afternoon. They made good time from their camp last night at Canyon de Chelly, Arizona, and I’m happy to see them again.
Chuck and Geri live in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.
This is a special get-together for all of us because they are selling their home to full-time, spending the winter in Appalachicola, Florida. It may be a long time before we’re together again and it’s been over a year since we were last together.
The crew is excited to see their pals, Radar and Doogie Bowser.
After sliding their fifth-wheel into a nearby campsite, Chuck and Geri come back to our campsite, and we put our canines in the pen. We sit in the shade of the BLT’s awning and have a good chat.
Aren’t these little nutcakes cute?
Later Bridget and Spike go on a play date!
Geri, Chuck, and I leave the four canines in their fifth wheel while we go to the Twin Rocks Cafe in Bluff.
Geri orders BBQ ribs. Chuck and I share a Classic Navajo Pizza. And then we share a Supreme Navajo Pizza! And then Geri rolls us out to their truck . . .
Tomorrow — a day trip to Mesa Verde!
