While traveling back to Casa Grande from a Major League Baseball Spring Training game about a few days ago, I chipped a crown on my lower teeth. Oops. After considering the option, we decided to cut short our time at the Palm Creek Golf and RV Resort and go to Yuma.
While in Yuma we went across the border to a Sani-Dental to get my tooth fixed and to get our teeth cleaned. And to do some shopping which we were there in Los Algodones.
Then we enjoyed our time at the Fortuna De Oro RV Resort. We parked near friends Gerri and Art. We hung out at happy hour and had some fun. This resort is not quite as fancy as Palm Creek, but then neither was the price.
We went back to Mexico the next day for a quick followup to the dentist and then back to our campsite and hung out. While there we were able to schedule a wash and wax job for the Roadrunner and got that done. $100 was well worth it.
There was also time for some pool and some golf at the campground.
I originally was told the visit to the dentist would take 72 hours and that my last appointment was going to be Monday. It actually got done on my third visit on Saturday. I was pleased with the result and I also got my teeth cleaned. Total bill for two teeth cleanings, consultation, X-ray and a crown - $310.
Saturday after the visit to the dentist we walked around and did some more shopping. It takes a minute to get shopping game face on. The shop owners don't give up on the first try. We had some lunch, talked with a couple from Montana that had been going to Yuma for a number of years and had a nice time.
Saturday was also the town's annual party for the winter visitors. They had free food and drink and
entertainment which was a nice gesture.
We saw our friends some more and watched a number of winter visitors at the campground depart for the journey north back home. Some said adios and took off, one couple spent two or three hours after they hooked up and pulled out of their space. It was just too hard from them to say goodbye. They had such a good time, leaving was something they really didn't want to go.
We on the other hand, had to get on with it and we departed early on Tuesday morning for the trip to Albuquerque.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
