The Mellott's Summer 2010 Adventures travel blog

Hello Everyone,

Well this is my first entry to our journal and I am quite frustrated. Who said this would be easy!! I have just spent about 2 hours on trying to download some pictures and still haven't been successful. Thanks Wayne for helping me to resize my picture files, that helped! However, a new glitch arose and I'm still not able to get the pictures downloaded. Sorry about that, I will get the pictures to you as soon as possible.

Our neighbors, Gordon and Judy took a couple of pictures of us as we were leaving and we were on our way. We left our house at about 8:15am and arrived here in Earp, CA at 11:45am. The only thing that bothers me about the trip is our cat Molly. She has found a cubby hole in the bedroom and we can't get her to come out. She has taken a couple of trips with us prior to this with no problems so I'm not sure whats up with her now. I think she might be mad at us for taking her away from her secure home again. I hope she gets over it soon.

We are settled in at the Emerald Cove RV Park, which is located on the beautiful Colorado River between Arizona and California. It is a real popular spot for water sports. Our site looks out at the river with a beautiul community of homes across the river. It's a nice place with three swimming pools and a recreation room, miniture golf course and kind of a golf course. I don't think people come here for the golf.

After we got settled yesterday, we went up to Havasu City which is about 30 minutes away. We drove over the Parker Dam, which creates Lake Havasu from the Colorado River. Havasu City is located on the east side of the lake. This little town has something very unique. We went to London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, AZ, which is based on the 1831 London Bridge which spanned the River Thames in London, England until it was dismantled in 1967. The Arizona bridge is a reinforced concrete structure clad in the original masonry of the 1830s bridge, which was bought by Robert P. McCulloch from the City of London. McCulloch had exterior granite blocks from the original bridge numbered and transported to America, in order to construct the present bridge in Lake Havasu City, a planned community he established in 1964 on the shore of Lake Havasu. The bridge was completed in 1971 along with a canal, and links an island in the lake with the main part of Lake Havasu City.

We're off tomorrow, Thursday, to Las Vegas and Nellis Air Force Base. I'll send another entry from there and hopfully I'll have the picture problem taken care of.
