Doggie Happy Days In Anza Borrego
So we’ve not exactly been living a life of hardship at our new boondocking site. In fact I’ll go ahead and admit that we’ve been downright lazy. Sometimes a place just calls for it…things are so relaxing, so inviting, so very naturally pretty that you really don’t feel the need to go anywhere else. So we’ve just been hanging around and admiring the fabulous view at our site, prospecting the gazillions of interesting dirt roads around the valley on our bikes and letting both people and impressions come our way…..oh, and dogs too. In fact if there’s one thing that’s been happening out here in the boonies it’s that Polly has been having a most social time of it.
It all started with a little teaser I put in the blog a few days ago. When we arrived at Borrego Springs on Monday we spotted a rather familiar white rig with a sexy new antenna just a ways down the hill from us. Yup, it was RV Sue And Her Canine Crew snuggled into a rather nice and private spot in the valley. The next day we meandered on down to see her and were greeted in grand style by Bridget and Spike and invited for a sit-down and a good chat. The three doggies did their respective sniff-hellos and hung out in the shade while Sue and I chin-wagged about blogging, RVing and life in general . She’s been exploring the cool metal sculptures around Borrego Springs (just like we did last year) and has been totally captivated by them. In fact she’s managed to find many that I’ve never seen. Such a lovely and down-to-earth gal and it was just the kind of relaxing afternoon I like. Oh, and her new antenna set-up IS really, really cool.
But that’s not all the doggie business we’ve been up to. As well as making pals with our neighbors, our buddies from Desert Hot Springs Sue and Dave made it down here and came over for a happy hour and all-out doggie play. They
are confirmed pooch-lovers and have 2 black dogs, Lewis and Sasha, both lovely doggies. Lewis is about Polly’s age and the two are firm and fast playmates. In fact most of their action is so fast I can’t even catch it on the camera. While the dogs got serious with play we shared some excellent rum & cokes and enjoyed the sunset. As we were hanging out we even had a visit from another set of blog readers John and Pam who had come out from San Diego for a day visit to the area and spotted our rig in the desert. Didn’t I tell you this RVing business is seriously social stuff?
We’ll be seeing Sue & Dave again when Paul breaks out the smoker later this week-end, so this dog story is not even close to over. AND of course we’ll be continuing with our bike prospecting & sunset views. If we get the urge we may, may even do some more extensive sightseeing (there’s just no tellin’ what might happen). Either way one thing is clear…Doggie Happy Days are here to stay 🙂
