London Bridge in America

We certainly found southern Arizona hotter than we did the Baja.  There might be breezes here, but they are dry, hot and dusty.  We spent 1.5 days (2 nights) in Lake Havasu City area checking out the London Bridge area, swimming,  and picking up our kayak,  figuring out the best way to stack it on Reggie (our nickname for the van).

  1. Isn’t it the coolest? The bridge I mean =)
    We saw it in January while there for the balloon festival. And the weather was/fabulous that time of year =)

    • Ah, I took a picture inside of the Visitor Center with the bridge and hot air balloons and immediately thought of you. I betcha it was gorgeous.

  2. Love that picture of Dad teaching the little boys how to slide down the handrails. Remember taking a picture of me teaching Maret that same thing in Sault St. Marie at the locks there? That was fun.
    Looks like you guys are having fun even if the temp is hotter.

    • We were thinking about Sault Set Marie when they were doing this, too! Good memories, stirred up again and again. When we sat on a stone wall while the younger 3 or 4 played on the steps by the bridge I commented that we never know what are the memories that will stick out for them, maybe these sliding on the handrail. After all, one of Anders’ fav memories of these travels was throwing rocks into a tree in the dark and watching the bats escape.

      • About 3 days after arriving in Mexico we stayed with a family near La Bufadora (blow hole) and they took us on a nighttime walk to the open Pacific where the kids played in the moonlight in the surf. On the way back their son showed the kids about the bats. Well, Anders loved throwing the rocks of course, mesmerized by the fluttering response.

I'm opinionated, friendly & chatty... I hope you are, too
