A Lazy Saturday

We seemed to have had trouble getting started this morning. It was really cloudy and dreary looking unlike most mornings in this desert area. After our morning walk we drove to the postoffice to mail off a letter. We then stopped at the London Bridge so Tom could take some pictures.
From 2010-01-17

The area under the bridge along the water is commercialized with little shops, restaurants and boat tours. I did go into the information center to get some information on what to see and do in this area.
This afternoon we spent relaxing and were glad to see the sun make an appearence.
I just read today that on Friday the 15th of January the state of Arizona has decided to close many of their state parks. The Yuma Territorial Prison that we had been to last week is one of the parks that will be closed. This is a real shame that these places will not be open to the public. Arizona seems to be in dire straits. Its been on the news that the state is selling off its state buildings.
