Catalina State Park

Catalina State Park

We are back at Catalina for the next two weeks.
We'll spend Christmas thru New Years here enjoying all that the area has to offer.

One of the things that the area has to offer is an endless array of beautiful
and varied sunsets.

Each day is different.   The sun bouncing off of the clouds onto the mountains,
or bouncing off of the clouds onto the mountains.

Its always a treat.

The clouds seem to be on fire.

Last night it was the mountains on fire and waxing moon.

Tonight my friend the Saguaro watches over the campground

The sun peeks thru the clouds and lights the lower elevations.

5 minutes the role is reversed and the mountains are illuminated.

10 minutes after that the scene has changed again.
Now the clouds reflect the color off of the mountains.

It's all part of the fun.   Waiting to see what the nights sunset will bring each day.

RV Faucet Replacement

Speaking of fun....

I had to replace the kitchen faucet in the RV

It was going to need some parts replacement, so rather than do a simple repair I decided
to replace it with the same model line, but with improved features.

I ordered the faucet online and had it delivered to the nearby Home Depot.
It was waiting for me when we got back here from Kartchner Caverns.

The Original had Soap, Faucet, Spout, Sprayer.

First on the list was empty out the cabinet and disconnect the old water lines
and remove the faucet and spout.

Then a trip to Home Depot for some misc plumbing parts.

I was happy that it only took one trip for parts.  
Sometimes more time is spend going for parts on plumbing jobs
than is actually spent doing the work.

I kept the soap dispenser and sprayer.  I need a plug for the sprayer hole.

The new spout has a pull down sprayer.
We now have two soap dispensers, one for dish soap  and one for hand soap.

The old sprayer is disconnected and merely hiding the hole for now till I find a suitable plug.

Works great and the pull down sprayer is more convenient.
We both think it looks better too.

The bus is getting more decked out in anticipation of Santas Visit,
which is now only 2 short days away.

Will he still come even though we don't have a chimney?


  1. Merry Christmas to you both. We'll be heading to Florida on New Years day for a couple of weeks. Safe travels.

  2. Why do I need to do the same? Our Bathroom faucet is leaking and "someone" is asking for a fix! Ho Ho Ho, maybe Santa can fix ours, I will leave the cookies there to see if that will help. Merry Christmas Greg, Kate and the KIDS, Lucy and Gracie. Hugs to all.
