Although we’ve been to see the London Bridge at Lake Havasu City, Arizona, a few times we went for another visit today. Um..I should mention that it was 80F and sunny and just a beautiful day.
On both sides of the canal that runs under the bridge is a nice paved riverwalk so we walked up and down both sides and enjoyed the views. The Lake Havasu Lighthouse Club is a group of citizens dedicated to improving the navigational lighting on Lake Havasu. They have placed small-scale replicas of actual American lighthouses along the canal and on the lake shore. We saw a few of them today.
After all that walking we returned to Craggy Wash for the rest of the day. Since the sun was so cooperative today I prepared a package of cornbread mix to cook in my home-made solar oven that I had made a few months ago. I have cooked vegetables a few times with great success but I wanted to see how cornbread would work, so this is my experiment.
Did I mention it was 80 degrees? Oh, yes, I did.
I stuck an oven thermometer next to the covered pot and it read 200F while it cooked. I wasn’t sure of the time required, so I let it go two hours. That was generous; I think 1.5 hours may have been enough today. I was surprised to see how nice it looked! It even browned!
People in the RV beside us were curious about the solar oven and came to see it when I set it up. I was so excited about how well it turned out that I took some over to them. I will do this again. Maybe next time I’ll try something like banana bread…maybe even cake!
