And thanks, also, for the Magpie answer for the birds around my campsite. They are so beautiful, they should have a fancier name, I think. I've never been a birder, but I can see I'm getting more and more interested in knowing what the birds are that come around. I might have to get a book of Western birds with good photos so I can do my own research.
Tomorrow we are leaving Rock Creek RV Park in Idaho. I'd like to start heading through Utah, to Las Vegas and finally Arizona where I plan to stay for a while. I've never been to Utah or Arizona. I was in Las Vegas once for a weekend - to get married. But let's not talk about that. :(
I've read a lot about the boondocking opportunities in Arizona and want to check them out. I'm thinking I might have trouble finding a good spot in an RV Park with all the regular fulltimers reserving in advance, but boondocking shouldn't be a problem.
The camp hosts here, Angie and Keith, were telling me lots of things yesterday. They gave me the info for a good on-site RV repairman that they trust in Yuma, and also the company in Yuma that handled their solar system. They had very good references for both in case I need them. They used to spend every winter there. They live here in Twin Falls and spend half the year at home and half the year here at the RV park as hosts. They drive home two days a week to keep up the home front. They've got the best of both worlds.
Where we end up tomorrow will probably depend on the weather. I'd like to find somewhere a bit warmer, although it has been a nice weekend here. I don't take Katie for very good walks when it's cold outside, and we're both getting cabin fever a little. We did take a good long walk this afternoon, though, and it felt good.
This morning I fixed myself cereal and raspberries. I dropped a few of the berries and thought I got them all, but I guess I missed a big one that rolled under the lower kitchen cabinets. Later in the day, Katie was acting funny, walking back and forth from the kitchen to the dinette, looking at me, back to the kitchen, etc. Finally she went into the kitchen, stuck her nose under the cupboards and came out with the berry in her mouth.
She came back to me, jumped up on the dinette bench and just looked at me. I told her she could eat it, but she just sat there. It was so funny. She acted like she didn't know what to do with it, but she didn't want to let it go. She doesn't usually get people food, and has never had a berry before.
Finally she jumped over to the couch and ate it.
