Saturday tour around the park

Hello once again.  It's hard to describe what beautiful PERFECT weather we are having to those of you who aren't here yet.  Upper 70s or low 80s day after day after day with LOTS of beautiful clear blue sky.  

Don and I took a nice long cart ride around the park this morning and stopped to say hello to lots of folks along the way.  We found a group of worker bees over by the Palm Creek float as they labored away decorating the float that will adorn the electric light parade next Saturday.

 
 
 
 
 
 

All the industrial fencing is gone from the north end of the park so we took a peek around the corner of the wall to look at Cottonwood.
 

The cotton field across the street looks bountiful.

The big dog run is growing in nicely and will be a great place for the BIG puppies to romp and run.
 

We can once again get close to the gardens and see the efforts of the garden club as they nurture their crops.
 
 
 
 

All looks well maintained!
 
 

We took a picture of the two new street signs in the construction area.   
 
 

Back inside the resort, we came upon this couple (Kitt and Mike) as they were out decorating their RV for the upcoming Christmas season.  They're from Montana so I thought it would be nice for their friends and family back home to see them out decorating in shorts, t-shirts, and sandals instead of parkas, wool caps, boots and mittens.
 

They're out here "roughing it" in their motor home with a full outdoor kitchen, grill, sink with running water, refrigerator, TV, and stereo music.    
 

The Fuller's at 1269 installed this pretty green turf around their home.  What a pretty alternative to the typical gravel.  Very nice!  Cathy says its really easy to maintain with a leaf blower.
 

Just around the corner, Don spied this flag sign and stopped for a quick picture.
Too bad Louise or Doug weren't outside at the time.


All decorated for Christmas. 

We spotted Roger Balzan chatting with his neighbor, Joanne.  They're both quite camera shy though.


We spied Sam Cox outside with a lariat!  And he really knows how to use it as we saw him successfully rope his hose caddy!  After a brief chat, we learned that he used to ride the rodeo circuit and roped cattle from horseback.........just like I see on TV.  Awesome!!  Ya just never know who you'll meet while out cruising in this park.


This gent and his dog were out for a stroll so we said Howdy.  His cute dog's name is Larry.  I hope everyone stops for a friendly chat and meets a new neighbor.  It's so fun to meet such friendly folks.


We could see the tennis courts were occupied so stopped in for a visit.




Captured some nice action shots.  Can you find the yellow ball in these two photos??




  


I took these tree climber photos Wednesday as we were enjoying a delicious taco salad out on the patio at poolside.  Stop up there each Wednesday for a delicious lunch and chat with neighbors and make new friends.



I end today with this beautiful shot from the pond and waterfall at the end of the 18th hole.


Have a GREAT day!!!
