We have moved south only 24 miles to the parking lot at Bluewater Casino at Parker, Arizona. When we went to see if we needed to register or pay anything they said no, that they “got rid of all that.” The parking lot is quite sloped but there is a gravel area just beyond the blacktop that is the most level so we joined the other rigs that were already there.
We did go inside the casino and signed up for their Players Club card, something we frequently do as often times we get free stuff when we do that. They gave us each $10 in free slot play plus a voucher for free breakfast buffet in the morning. Of course we had to use the free slot play and we made enough money to pay for lunch in their restaurant!
Behind the casino hotel there is a marina on the Colorado River, but it’s quite empty this time of year. Next to that is a long picnic area with lots of sheltered picnic tables. Nobody around.
More motor homes arrived later in the afternoon. It was a comfortable sunny 70F degrees, no wind. Most of the rest of the day was spent visiting with our new neighbors from Missouri, Washington State, and Canada until the sun went down and it got cold.
