It’s Getting Crowded — It Must Be Balloon Fest

The 4th Annual Lake Havasu City Balloon Festival kinda creeped up on us.

Jan returned last Thursday from visiting her relatives in Florida and then Balloon Fest arrived on Friday. It’s interesting because there is far more traffic and congestion than balloons in Lake Havasu.

The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta (their words, not mine) has over 700 balloons while Lake Havasu’s is under 100, but it doesn’t take much to congest this city. Even the mail was late today.

Anyway, a lot of folks rolled into our campground this weekend — especially from nearby California — causing a brownout (low voltage) Saturday morning which forced our RV electrical system to disconnect from campground power and to start up our coach’s generator.

But that’s the worst of it. The balloons were fun to watch and the couple who camped next to us turned out to be a teacher and elementary school principal who were just starting to RV.

Both Ellie and Flirt went swimming today. Flirt chases stones and Ellie just wades. They loved it.

Here are some photos of a Jeepin’ trip to nearby Parker Dam I took last week . . .
