Day 23 - Travel Day to Mesa/Phoenix, AZ

We have another travel day for our blog.  It rained all night and was still raining as we left the campground and Quartzsite.  Walmart plastic bags come in handy to keep John’s shoes dry as he hitched up, although the rest of him was wet.

We have been seeing the dry desert, but today we saw pools of water on the land and even some green spots outside of Buckeye.

After we arrived in Mesa and parked our rig, we met up with friends from New Jersey at Organ Spot Pizza.  The main attraction is a Wurlitzer theater organ and the man who plays it.  The organ has 6000 pipes and is covered in real gold worth about one million dollars.  It was fun and the pizza was good too. 

We saw the Dutton Family Show in the evening.  They are an interesting group of talented musicians from the smallest child to the oldest adult.  We really enjoyed seeing the children perform.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable day.

Note:  USA Today, Thursday, January 25, had a picture of the larger than life statue of Marilyn Monroe in Palm Springs, getting a cleansing shower from the aerial truck of the Palm Springs Fire Department.
