Hubby and I decided to take a little week-end trip to Yuma. We had been there many years ago for a competition and went through the old prison but it has become a snow bird community and there have been changes. We stayed at the Radisson Hotel
and it was a great place to stay. Close to the freeway, close parking, great room and bed, friendly people, nice restaurant and the best free breakfast ever!
We drove down to old town and the main street was pretty as a picture...
This fountain was in the center of the road creating a circle to drive around:)
The old Saint Carlos hotel, even had some old timers sitting the bench chatting.
the old theatre
A cute Italian place and don't you love the bikes in the front!
We went to Algodones, Mexico which is only 7 miles from Yuma. I had heard how this was a good place and very safe and etc. Well, it is safe but for my taste it was not good. It is streets lined with vendors that hawk at you as you walk by...Lady!! Pretty jewelry, need a dentist? Glasses? and etc. A typical border town I guess you would say. We spent about an hour, had a beer and headed back. When we checked back in to the U.S. the man checking our passports was surprised we hadn't bought anything and had nothing to claim.
All in all we had a nice time and the weather was perfect:)

Did you know

This is a old medicine from my youth that is used as a poultice for boils or sebaceous cysts. I have a tendency to get the cysts and until recently forgot about this but remembered and went digging in the medicine cabinet and found some. I am happy to report it WORKS!!

Cat's Claw

This is cat's claw blooming on my back fence and
on the little half wall on the driveway.
This plant is very aggressive and has a 3 pronged claw that enable it to climb most anywhere. These blooms turn into 12-18 inch pods that are not so attractive.
Cats Claw is a vine commonly known as Una de Gato and is used traditionally in Peruvian medicine for the treatment of a wide range of health problems, particularly digestive complaints and arthritis and to treat wounds, stomach problems, cancer, and more but not used here in the U.S. that I know of.
