Apache Junction- Update 1

Apache Junction, AZ  

Judy and I have been at our winter park for exactly one week.  We are still getting used to the park routine.  I have not finished unpacking things from the basement area yet that usually comes out for extended stays, such as the grill and tables. That will be my project for today.

Judy and I have joined one card group and the morning shuffleboard group.  I plan to take advantage of the exercise facilities but haven’t gotten around to it yet.  Judy is working on her “walking routine”.  The computer club will be presenting a number of classes for computer users of different skill levels from novice to advanced.  Judy and I are going to sign up for the Excel class.

This being the first week, we haven’t ventured out for any day trips.  I am looking forward to getting up into the nearby Superstition Mountains.  The Grand Canyon is within driving distance also.

Thursday we celebrated Thanksgiving by stopping by a local restaurant for the holiday meal and then went to see a movie.  Many of the park residents participated in the park sponsored dinner. 

The movie we chose to view was “MockingJay Part 1”.  The movie is the third in the “Hunger Games” trilogy. I agree with the decision to divide the book into two movies.  If you plan to go see the movie and have not seen the previous two or read the books, I recommend you rent the first two movies first.

That is all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. We sure miss you guys here at Adelaide, but it's great to know how busy you're going to be. Grand Canyon will be a fantastic trip and you may go more then once. Have fun!

  2. I hope that at some point we can winter somewhere without working. We did decide to take a job in Montana this summer, only 2 days on. No pay, but more time to explore.

    1. I checked out the CG you are going to be at. It looks like a great area.

  3. On our trip out that way this past summer we enjoyed day trips to Tombstone and the Meteor Crater. Also, if you're at all interested in musical instruments, there is a wonderful Musical Instrument Museum on the north side of Phoenix. We were really surprised at how big and comprehensive it is... hard to see it all in one visit.

  4. Hoping they have a card group at Arcadia rv park, really enjoyed those card games at Adelaide's. Plus we still have two bags of coins, one of nickels and one of dimes, so we are ready! That photo you have on the blog on the timeline is that in St. Augustine? It is beautiful and looks very familiar to me.
