"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

BeBe to Q


We left the Big Bend area last Friday morning.  Stopped at the rest area dedicated to the Marfa Lights.  The state of Texas has created quite a facility with overnight parking for viewing.  Not sure how often they appear, but they have been doing it for quite some time.

  • After bypassing El Paso to the North, we planned to spend the night in Las Cruces.  We arrived there earlier than planed, so after a Walmart shopping experience we decided to head on to Deming.  Met a friend (Eileen) from Pheonix while checking in at the RV park in Deming. She was on her way to Lajitas to direct the Casitas in Lajitas Rally. We had a good visit before spending a windy and cold Friday night.  Saturday found us in Gilbert Ray campground in Tucson.  Had a wonderful visit with a dear friend that fulltimes in his Casita.  It’s always great to see Ed (Dutchman to many of you Casita Forum readers).  we also experienced our first Arizona sunset.

Leaving Gilbert Ray late on Sunday morning had us arriving at Quartzite just in time for a Dome Rock sunset.

Shortly after arriving, we received the news that there was to be a wedding on Tuesday, and we were invited.  The two people most responsible for giving us the courage to try  desert boondocking were getting married.

Shortly after the ceremony we gathered at the Yacht Club for a reception dinner.  It was fun for all.

Wednesday morning, Wanda and I made our way into town and to the local flea market.

Love all the bright colors.  The lighting wasn’t that good but they all still stood out. Scarves, shirts, and I’m not sure what they were.

Bags and hats.

And of course, don’t forget the concrete statuary for your RV.

And, if you had an ache or pain, relief was just minutes away.
