St. David

Welcome to our maiden voyage in our building on wheels! We're sitting in a pretty little resort in St. David, AZ. It's about 35 miles from our house. Just far enough to feel like we've "gotten away" but close enough that we can do it in a weekend.
St. David sits atop Artisian wells so it's like an oasis in the middle of the desert. Many properties have ponds and there are huge Cottonwoods everywhere. There is a beautiful monastery in town that is very lush and canopied with trees where they have an arts and crafts fair every year. We like to go just to walk around the grounds. Here at the St. David campgrounds there are probably 150 campsites. On the lower level, where we like to stay, there are two "lakes" full of fish, about 20 ducks, and a couple of geese. The ducks and geese have no fear of people or dogs and for some strange reason, thankfully, our dogs don't have much interest in them. There are probably only 7 or 8 campers on this level but when we walked the dogs to the upper level we were very surprised to see LOTS of RVs up there. Full hook ups there. :) But it's like camping in a parking lot up there...not for us. This time of year we get snowbirds from all over the country and because of the price of gas we were happy to see that we are not the only crazy people in RVs.
When we left home on Friday, we crated Willy since he can be such a spaz about this house moving. After about 20 miles we let him out and although he acted like he was going to have a heart attack and was shaking like a leaf, his laid down next to Shasta for the duration of the ride.
This trip was also to figure out how we were going to get on the internet and send/receive email on the road. Poor Ron worked for a day and a half to figure it out and obviously he did. So now when we leave town next month for Santa Cruz we'll still be hooked up! Just need to figure out how to download pictures while away from home. I'll try to post some Monday when we get home.
Gotta go...Ron's turn at the computer. :)
