Indio, California: The Motorcoach Country Club held their annual Poker Run social event this afternoon. The contest is fun, well-attended, and was created as a way to include/celebrate new owners so we can all get to know them and they can all get to know us. I did not volunteer this year (as I have previously). My Driver has been ill with the same crud that struck me a few weeks ago (now you know why it has been so quiet on this blog - we have been doing nothing but sneezing), we decided to not share our germs with the happy boaters. Honestly, a lot of people in our resort have been ill and I'm steering (pun intended) clear.
It was 85° in Indio today.
The best part of being a spectator, besides sipping on mimosas, is chatting with the boaters as they waited on our boat dock, to get to Colleen and Rick.
The names of the boats are so clever:
The above photos only represent a few of the boats participating today (and there were many more tied-up to their docks today as well). Everyone really was having a fun time!
After the contest was over, the boaters gathered on the top floor of the Yacht Club for a potluck Chili Dump. Though I may get nauseous just typing this - a Chili Dump is where everyone brings a quart of chili and it is all dumped into a giant pot, heated up and served. Oh goodness, that just sounds awful to me. Have any of My Dear Readers participated in such a "meal"... if I can call it a meal? Am I missing out on the best dining experience of my life?
Until my next update, I remain, your land-lubbing correspondent.
