California Here We Come

We were awakened at 7:30 this morning by a very noisy wood chipper.  7:30 isn’t all that early, but when we were struggling to stay asleep through the night because of all the trains passing by we could have used a sleep-in.
We decided to move on.  Yuma has many RV Resorts, not as many as Mesa, but a lot.  There are also RV parks and private campgrounds, but why pay when you can stay for free?  Our first night was free at the BLM land we found north of town.  We filled up our water tank, dumped the dirty tanks, and then went to find a gas station to fill that up before we head to California.

Early Morning Wood Chipper

 We really didn’t go very far, only a few miles, into California. Yuma is just across the bridge. So we’re now in the Pacific Time Zone.  There is a casino here with a very large parking area for RVs to park for free.  So that’s where we are tonight.  I think there are at least 50 other RVs here with us.
We’re In There Somewhere
 I understand it’s around 0 degrees back home in Minnesota… too bad, so sad.  It was 73 here today.  That awful sunshine is so annoying, it’s so bright and that darned sun is so low in the sky it gets in my eyes, and causes such harsh shadows on the pictures.
After getting settled in at our new location we went for a drive in the country, not looking for anything in particular.  We saw field after field of vegetables.  Cauliflower for sure, and different kinds of lettuces.  More, that I could not identify, perhaps artichokes, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, and more.
There was a lot of activity in the fields, crops being harvested.  Most were too far out to get a good picture, or that annoying sun was in my eyes.  This was the best picture I could get.  The pickers were working so fast and furious, and they had loud music playing.  I’m not sure if the music was for fun or to keep them working at that fast pace in time to the music…maybe a bit of both.  That looked like such hard work, it made me tired just watching them.
