WORRALL TRAVEL R'S ARE ON THE ROAD AGAINAfter the winter holidays, we stowed the decorations, played a few last rounds of golf in the California sun, and headed south....first to Las Vegas for a short visit to daughter Abby, son-in-law Neal, and Noodles, the dog who doesn't know she is a dog. Hope she's not reading this! Boy will she have a shock when Baby #1 is due in about six weeks! While in Vegas, Russ helped Abby build a footstool/toybox for the baby's room, and we had the opportunity to visit the high school where Neal teaches English. His school is a career technical academy for students interested in engineering, robotics, medicine, hospitality-cuisine. It is a first class facility, and we can see why Neal loves teaching here.
Our 3 days in Vegas passed quickly, and once again we were on the road again to southern Arizona to Casa Grande and the Palm Creek RV and Golf Resort. We will call this home for the next 3 months, short of the time we spend commuting to Vegas when our second granddaughter is born. Palm Creek is a five star RV resort. We came here to play and relax. So far it's been all play...golf, pickle ball, tennis, bicycling, hot tub, photo club, Mac Users club, Zumba, woodshop, silversmithing, card playing, bingo, and field trips to surrounding areas. I am not sure we can count the few hours of sleep we are getting as the relaxing part. At some point, we really do look forward to sitting by the pool and reading, but it hasn't happened yet.
Today, we went with the photo club on field trip to Saguaro National Park. Cactus was certainly my theme for the day. These desert plants are beautifully complex, their bristles glowing in the morning light. Enjoy some of the photos, and if you can identify the some of them, let me know.

While the namesake cactus of the National Park is indeed the most prevalent and artistically decorate the landscape,

Tomorrow, we play in a golf scramble, and are looking forward to the weekend when our dance card looks pretty clear. Maybe we'll make it to the pool.
HEY ROLLING FRIENDS, COME AND VISIT US AT PALM CREEK in CASA GRANDE!
