Pre-Departure Day

Laundry is drying. The sheets and towels are washed and dried. The holding tanks are clean and empty. The refrigerator is full (enough). Yep, after extending our stay from four days to ten days, tomorrow is our departure day.

We have one more social event before we leave, though - dinner! Our friend Carol has a menu planned; my assignment is Zucchini and Tomato Salad with Almonds. We bought the vegies at the Temecula Farmers' Market on Saturday, and picked the lemons off the trees in the Jojoba Hills lemon orchard this morning.

I had a big head of cauliflower stashed away, so I'm also taking my favorite, a simple roasted cauliflower with olive oil and red pepper. There is no shortage of delicious food here.

Luna is recovering quickly, begging to go outside again and able to jump to the top level of her kitty condo (aka the throne). Whew.

Tomorrow night's stopover - enroute to Tucson and Catalina State Park - is the big gravel lot at the Gila Bend Elks Lodge (our "home" lodge) where we will boondock overnight. We want to pull in just before dark; I think we've seen all Gila Bend has to offer. I'll try to remember to snap a photo for you all.
