2014 rolls into 2015

Boomers reduced res-6350


(Jan) Borrego Springs was our home for the close of the year 2014. Boomer couples Duane & Betty, Mark & Judie and Bill & Gisela joined us out on Rock House Road to Boondock & bring in the new year. So what do eight sixty-somethings do to celebrate New Years? Our Creative Director & Professional Photographer Judie had us wearing 2015 glasses and writing with flash lights! We also sang a ton of oldies around the campfire!

Carlees Lunch Bunch (2)Games of Desert Bocci Ball were played outside and hilarious games of Telephone Pictionary were played inside.

We drove into Borrego Springs to eat at Carlee’s on New Years New Years 2014-6442Eve Day and then returned several days later because the food was so good.

New Years Day we sat down to a feast of Trash can turkey & all the fixings, Irish stew and several yummy salads; great food with friends in a gorgeous setting!

Fonts Point2 (1)


On Sunday night we caravanned over to Fonts Point to watch the Sunset.  There’s a gorgeous view of the ‘badlands’ of Borrego and a great place to have Happy Hour and watch the sunset. Chuck got this great photo of our group.






On the 4th Chuck and I went to join our friends Dean & Judy over on Ogilby Road near Yuma. We enjoyed lots of visiting over morning coffee and a campfire or two. They were looking for a new Motor Home and found just what they were looking for on the first day.  We were able to join them on the sales lot to look it over. So exciting! The rest of the Borrego group joined us after a couple of days. Our routines settled into everyone getting chores, bookwork, laundry, haircuts and repairs done but we did take time for coffee in the mornings each day and Happy Hours in the afternoon. On the 10th we all drove over to the Yuma Foothills to a gathering that Ron & Sharon were hosting.  Ron grilled hot dogs and we all brought side dishes. It was very nice to see lots of Boomers that we hadn’t seen in a while  Judie got a group photo of the 72 of us!

That brings us up to the present; Boomerville! It’s time for the Boomer’s annual gathering in the southeast corner of Scadden Wash BLM land near Quartzsite. We’ll be here for a couple of weeks enjoying 200 or so of our old and new best friends.
