Hangin' in Quartzsite...

This past week we've just been relaxing and taking walks with Emma. The weather is beautiful...sunny and in the mid to upper 70s...a perfect time to take advantage of the lawn chairs and get some sun.

One day we took a walk down the main street in Quartzsite and took pics of an old gas station and post office, and a picture of Emma, when she decided that she was hot and tired and wanted to take a break under an antique car that was for sale along the side of the road.

On this same walk, we stopped at the Tyson Wells Stage Station Museum, which was pretty interesting. Built in 1866 by Charlie Tyson, it served as a way-station on the California/Arizona line, and even had a small hotel for stayovers. The restoration began in 1980 and strived to maintain as much of the original structure as possible. A little village of cement and stone houses was built by Walter Barrett and was donated to the museum.

We were sitting outside one evening, soaking in the sun, when we saw a parasailer overhead...pretty cool!

We're waiting for Flat Hayden to arrive in the mail so we can take him on our travels to Yuma and possibly back to Parker and the London Bridge.

That's all for now, folks!
