Happy Valentines Day... Under the Sea Dance last night

I hope everyone had a Happy Valentines Day with your sweetheart. We spent the day with me playing some Pickleball, Glenda getting her walk in, lunch at Native Grill and Wings Restaurant, then at the Mesa Flea Market and  some grocery shopping. Native Grill and Wings is also known as Native New Yorker in Mesa, AZ. I had the Club Sandwich and Glenda had the Fish Sliders. Both had fries and were very tasty. We then headed home are relaxing this evening.

Last night however, we attended the RV resort Valentines Dance. The theme was "Under the Sea". Like the dances we used to attend back in high school......many years ago. :-)  The decorations were incredible. Due to the lighting my photos I wasn't able to show how detailed and colorful the decorations were.

Very colorful

The band played the type 60's and 70's music and folks were doing the twist, the stroll and even some tried to do some line dancing to the music. It was a BYOB dance for those that wanted some alcohol but they did provide popcorn and soda along with all the candy at the candy bar. Of course there were all my favorites - licorice, Good and Plenty, Reese's peanut butter cups, Mike and Ike, Jolly Ranchers and other treats. I did my part in consuming the treats.
 
I typically don't do much dancing since I have two left feet but I did my best in keeping up with Glenda. She has great rhythm and looks so good on the dance floor. We had a great time.
 
They had the typical area for having photos taken so I asked one of the workampers to help us out. He did a good job and my Valentine looks so great. I am a lucky guy.
 
Can't believe it been 43 years of marriage
 
We've made so many good friends since we've been here and last night we sat with Bob and Judy. Bob and Judy are full-timer's too and doing some workamping as they travel.
 
 
Bob is a lot like me in regard to dancing and Judy is a lot like Glenda. Bob and I did our best to keep up. At the end of the night our wives were very pleased with our efforts. Two more weeks here at Canyon Vistas and then off to Kartchner Caverns SP. We plan to get in as much fun and activity as we can until then. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and be safe.

  3. So I'm a little behind in my blog reading, must have something to do working the last week and a half. Looks like you had a great Valentine's day. We have an interview Friday with Cal-Am to work in the decor dept, have a feeling that's where all the Valentines decor came from. We'd be staying at Val Vistas Villages in Mesa. Sure would be great to have a job pinned down so we can get a handle on what we are doing next winter. Hope to see you soon.

    1. Faye N Dave, glad to hear you are interviewing with Cal Am. They have an extensive décor department and as you can see they are very detailed in their decorations for events. If you do get the workamping job we'll definitely be seeing you. Looks like you would be just down the road a bit from this park. Good Luck on the interview.
