Visiting the Markets

This morning the campground had a breakfast that we went to. For $4.00 the breakfast consisted of pancakes or biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs and a sausage pattie plus orange juice and coffee. It was very tasty as we usually eat oatmeal for breakfast.
Tom had read about 2 flea market/swap meet markets located here in Yuma so we thought we would check them out. The first one we stopped was called Yuma Swap Meet and we were not impressed at all. Seemed like alot of junky stuff and the place was not neatly kept. We were hesitant to go to the second place, the Marketplace, but we did and were pleasantly surprised at the difference. It was very neat and clean and the vendors had nicer merchadise. It was also very large in area and we did not go through the entire market, maybe we will get back another day before leaving the area. At both markets we were charged an admission of $.50 per person, this was a first for us.
After returning to the campground we spent the afternoon during housekeeping chores. The windows got a good washing inside and out. Tom set up the satalite dish so we could receive more than the 6 or 7 snowy channels on the campground's cable.
