Sunday, January 1, 2017, Imperial Dam, CA, Day 2, 0 Miles, 3,923.7 Miles For the Trip

Happy New Year. 2016 has been quite a year with some wonderful travels; I hope 2017 is at least as much fun for me & all of you.

While it was warm overnight, it rained off & on, and around 4:00AM the wind picked up enough that I had to go outside & close the front window cover - it was vibrating enough in the wind that I was worried about the support arms failing.

The rain & wind stopped by 8:00. I went for a walk around part of the Imperial Dam area since I wouldn't be walking for coffee. After breakfast and a cup of drip coffee, I did some reading, both my current book & a few blogs & forums on the computer. I also read the Sunday Syracuse Post Standard, my hometown Sunday paper. Once the sun came out it was warm enough to sit outside. The Ramada was wet enough that they canceled the Sunday music gathering, although I talked for awhile with a Washington state couple that stopped by hoping the music makers would appear.

I didn't do anything for the rest of the day except enjoy the sun and read my book. No photos today. While there were long periods of fairly heavy clouds, there was enough sun throughout the day to completely fill the batteries.

Dinner was a grilled chicken thigh, mashed potatoes, and more of the coleslaw. There is still enough coleslaw left for one more meal.

Until Tomorrow -
