Oxbow of the Colorado

We overstayed (15 days instead of allotted 14) at Squaw Lake and finally headed to Oxbow further up the Colorado River after getting some business done in Yuma and a few hours of playtime for the kids at the Castle Playground we found a couple of weeks ago.  We now have our Mexican vehicle insurance valid for 6 months starting next week on the 5th.

It’s fairly quiet here at Oxbow, a couple of other campers and supposedly some rattlesnakes still up and about in the area.  We have yet to spot one, which is fine with us.  We are curious about them but would like to see one in a somewhat controlled situation (other than a zoo or cage).

The children are busy along the waters edge at a sandy/silty beach.  We hear bees buzzing all the time but haven’t found a hive yet.  They haven’t bothered us, and we evidently haven’t bothered them too much as we are living in harmony so far.

We’ve set up the vestibule here to get all of the kids sleeping outside of the van.  Forgot to take pics.  Sorry, I’ll have to remember to post them later.  But have a look at When You Spy a Better Campsite.

Toveli and Anders weren’t too keen on the idea but after one sleep in it they seem to enjoy it.  Seems more like a bedroom to them.  Toveli thinks its a fairy house, living inside of a tulip.  She also built a new fairy house down at the beach, quite different from the one the kids built at Squaw Lake.  Their imaginations never cease to amaze me.
