A Day of Rest.... (March 9: Day 6--Blythe, CA)

Today is a rest day....a day to catch up on things and do laundry.  I thought we might sleep in, but we were up almost at the usual time.  I am rooming with Lynn these two days, and she is a perky Floridian with a spirit of adventure as big as Texas!  She is a traveling nurse, which means she takes assignments all over the US--her next adventure/assignment could be Alaska.  Mind you, she just doesn't sit while she is there; she works then explores the area with the curiosity and gusto of Lewis and Clark.  She is a perky morning person.....and she serves me coffee in bed since I am not.  {{SIGH}} Life is good.  Her blog is lynn-tour.blogspot.com

Well, perky Lynn taught a yoga class this morning at 8:30

 Then, at 9:30, we had a bike maintenance clinic, headed by our tour guide, Carol.  After a 25-year career with the US Navy,  she now enjoys the unstructured life of retirement.  She tells it like it is and has a wicked sense of humor.  She can also power lift 350 pounds, so look out.

After her demonstration, I got my turn:
And soon, Baby was clean....

She really wasn't that dirty because I had taken good care of her after being in the rain....plus, if you recall, I chose NOT to ride while it was raining.

The rest of the day was spent getting to know the town a bit, and grabbing some lunch.  We found a great little Mexican restaurant--it's been open 50 years in Blythe.   It doesn't look very appetizing in the picture, but it was mmm-mmm good and I haven't gotten sick....life is good.

You know what, this is a really lame post tonight.  It is getting late and I am rushing to get it up in addition to doing some other stuff, so my apologies.  Just wanted to get it posted.......Girl Scout honor the next one won't be as rushed!

Gotta run--gotta pack for tomorrow.  There will be no post tomorrow as the hotel/motel doesn't have any wifi service.  As I understand it, it doesn't have much of anything (and I certainly hope that includes bedbugs!) and it will make the Jacumba Inn look like the Ritz.  So until Thursday, I will bid you adieu.

By the way, Thursday is Bob's birthday, so please harass him with birthday wishes in my absence.
