Wayne and I missed Pam and Ernie during our week-plus stay at Lake Havasu City too. In Quartzsite, Ernie won a free week-long stay at The Palms RV Resort so they took advantage of the warm stop in Yuma on their way east from Chula Vista.

Within a few minutes the three rigs were set up and we were all together again.
|Our campsite. It looks out over the desert.|
The campground is nice and our sites face outward into the desert and the setting sun.
The weather is cooperative too, giving us just the right temperature to sit out until dusk.

Right away, we met our neighbors, who pulled in at the same time as all of us. Dave and Sherry are from near Wasilla, Alaska. Yes, they've met Sarah, but no, they don't know her intimately.

That's Sherry and Dave's coach behind them.

Breakfast at Cafe Verde
I called Montezuma Veterinary Services -- just down the road from the campground on our way to breakfast the next morning and was given a 4:15 appointment time. We left Lexie and Ozzie in the coach while we ate. Upon our return, Lexie's pain seemed worse. I called the vet office again to give notice that we would be coming earlier. A stream of emergencies had come into their office and they couldn't guarantee we'd get her seen sooner, but we would be there in case we could get in earlier.
Lexie appears to have Intervertebral Disc Disease. She was given a longer prescription of steroids to heal the injury again. Upon advise of the vet, the little foam steps she used to go to and from the sofa have been reduced to two small foam beds and she is now an official "floor" dog.
As for our plan to see Sedona today, it's okay... we've been there once already and didn't mind missing it, though we did miss being with Joyce, Charlie, Pam and Ernie who had a great day.
