Rich and Margie - Our Neighbors at KOA Gila Bend, AZ

Aloha Everyone,

We were amazed to see Honu looking shiny and clean. J.J. explained that it’s because there is very little pollution in Mesa, AZ.

Arrived at KOA Gila Bend in two hours including a leisurely lunch at Mimi’s Bistro. I ordered French Onion Soup and Reuben. My dishes were quite photogenic but not to my taste. J.J. graciously exchanged his French dip sandwich and corn chowder with me :-).

Special Valentines desserts were tasty but not healthy for us! Oh well, we have weaknesses for chocolate and cheesecake.

Rich & Margie from San Diego are newbies in retirement. They are on their first major road trip with their 5th wheeler. Rich retired from the Department of Defense as a civilian contractor. Margie had a long career with a dental office. On their way to Organ Pipe National Monument, the couple’s goal is to visit all of the national parks.

When I brought out our flat granddaughter and her friend, Rich brought out his “No Name” gnome and Margie her little bird. Rich loves Harley Davidson motorcycles and his “No Name” gnome resembles him.

Aloha -- Cathi
