Feeling Like Children Again…
Wish it were that easy!
Well our time at the Fountain of Youth RV Resort is over and we are back in the desert for only a few weeks more…we leave the day after Easter and slowly begin our way to Bryce Canyon where we will be going from extreme heat to the cold again.
We enjoyed our time at the Fountain of Youth and took full advantage of the pools and even though we do not feel like we are in our 20’s, we do feel the difference those soaking did for our tired and sore bodies.
We also spoke to several of the workers who were of course happy that their season was coming to an end but most of them really enjoy working there and many return year after year. Once we heard that and looked around the place and even though it is in the middle of the desert it feels like a community within itself, we decided to put in our resume so we might be able to spend next winter working there.
As for the desert, it is getting hotter every day and suppose to reach the 3 digits for the next few days then back into the 90’s afterward. Compounded with the heat from the grill in the kitchen, they have no sort of air or swamp cooler working in the Café, there are only a few fans with the doors and windows opened if the wind does not warrant them to be closed. Not a fun time at this point but we will muddle through as we always do.
The good news is once the sun goes down we are able to sit out on our patio and enjoy the stars and the temps drop to the lower 60’s and if the wind does not blow too hard we are able to sleep with our windows opened with the fan, otherwise most of the day the air conditioner is running full blast.
All of that will change in just a few short weeks since up in Bryce Canyon the temps at night are barely above freezing and the day highs are 60’s and 70’s. A bit on the brisk side but after having this extreme heat for the past few weeks it sounds very inviting.
I never thought I would say this but I miss working. There it is, in print so there is no taking it back. We are both looking forward to be out of the kitchen and once again working together all hours in a store with no worry about weather conditions. Running registers, stocking shelves, assisting customers and best of all working together. Both of us working full time and getting paid for all hours worked, being in an area where we can explore and see the magnificence. We are so excited and plan to embrace the time we are there for all it is worth.
For now we will enjoy the 10 days left in the desert the best we can and look forward to safe travels to our next adventure.
