Veterans Day Observance, Waxing the rig, A Rainbow and Pizza

Activities continue here at our winter stop, Canyon Vistas RV Resort. Last week the park had a Veterans Day parade, flag retiring and new flag raising in tribute to all the veterans that have served our country. A local high school band performed during the parade and the flag ceremony. The event was very respectful and moving since many residents here are military veterans from several wars.

Thank you to my Dad, my son and brother in law for their serve.

A number of folks decorated their golf carts and followed the band in the parade.Even the Canadian residents showed their respect. Perfect day for observing the sacrifices of our veterans.

With the great weather and having had the rig pressure washed the week before I was able to get started on waxing the rig. I first got on the roof and used some UV protectant and then after the sun was lower I got to work waxing the front cap. The job was made a lot easier with my new buffer I got this summer. Wax on, Wax off.

Camp Lowry is starting to look real good.
Still a lot to go with waxing but it's a start. We've had some rainy days lately so waxing has been put off but after today the sun is supposed to shine again and I can get going on the rest. However with the rain comes a rainbow and we were blessed to be able to get some photos of a beautiful rainbow over Superstition Mountain yesterday.

The rainbow was so wide I couldn't get the whole thing

Superstition Mountain

People were pulling off the side of the road in awe of the sight. Me included. These photos were just with my IPhone. I'm sure others with better cameras and lens were able to get some spectacular pictures. I'm happy with these though. Rainbows are beautiful but the mountains just make them better. My opinion.
We had a chance to get together last weekend to go for some pizza with our son. He recommended going to Gilbert, AZ. We went to Oregano's Chicago Style Pizza on Gilbert Rd. There are several location in the area. They have a great supreme type pizza with a thin crust. The crust was paper thin and perfectly crunchy. It's called the Numero One-O 
The menu reads like this:The name says it all. A traditional combo of house made sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, green peppers and mozzarella cheese makes one really tasty pizza. It's a must-have.A definite return visit is in order.
I continue to play Pickleball and we've done a little more hiking. More to come on our hike to Silly Mountain and our Shrimp boil with our Canadian friends, Ron and Patsy. 

Thanks for following along.
