Although I have posted pictures of our site and the pool at Cocopah RV and Golf Resort I realized I have never posted pictures of the other common areas in our winter home.
So here is what life is like when we are at our winter home. 🙂
Some days start off with a morning walk and watching the sunrise by the pond at the main office.
Other days start off with a morning walk and watching the sunrise over the lettuce fields.
My daily walk always includes a visit with Eddy the Egret … now I have no idea if other people call him Eddy but that’s what I call him when I say good morning to him.
Through out the day hubby will often join me for a walk and one day I took my camera along.
We are very close to the pool, laundry room, and cantina, so that is were we will begin our tour.
Hopefully this picture give you an idea of how close we are to everything!
Every second week we do laundry in the main laundry area, there is also another laundry area in the pet section of the park.
The Laundry Room is on the left of this building.
The laundry room also has a nice outside area for hanging clothes … I hope these clothes are okay with being in my blog!
Many people will sit outside in this seating area while waiting for the laundry to finish or they will sit by the pool which is just across the way.
The laundry room is across from the Cantina so laundry day always includes a visit to the Cantina for a pitcher of beer. On laundry day we sit inside the Cantina at the bar and have fun conversation with whoever is around. 😀
On Friday night we always attend the Egg Game, which is very popular in the park. It is held in the Cantina and we always sit outside for that.
On Friday nights this place is packed! We have to get here early to get a seat. I try to avoid posting pictures of people without their permission but this group was very happy to be included in my blog ☺
Across from the main entrance of the Cantina is the back of the ballroom, meeting rooms, and the library, which has a large selection of great books!
Along with a good selection of books there is also a large puzzle table.
Continuing on we pass the tennis and pickle ball courts.
To the left of the courts is the Activity Center where we can sign up for a multitude of events such as dances, live music, the Horse Races, etc.
On the right of the Activity Center and beside the pickle ball courts is the Fitness Centre.
As we continue on past the Activity Center we come up to the main resort office building. To the left on the picture below is the door to the mailboxes, the area to the right of the building is the back of the post office. The main door is in front and we can buy stamps, mail letters, and pick up parcels there.
The mailbox area has over 800 boxes so I have put a flip flop sticker on our box so that we can find it easier … because of course … Life Is Better In Flip Flops 🙂
The front of the above building is the main office, which handles registration, has a small store, and answers all kinds of questions.
This is Eddie’s pond but he was camera shy and flew out of the picture.
Now we turn back toward our site and we pass the restaurant.
We often make a small side trip down to the river and on our way we pass the picnic area where we usually have at least one of our block parties. I think our February block party will be held here this year. A block party is a potluck for all the people on our street and the street behind us … there were around eighty people at our January party.
The area along the Colorado River is often referred to as the beach, but I have never seen anyone use this area as a beach … but it is still pretty to come down and see the water 🙂
As we near the turn to our street we walk by the horseshoe pitch, there is also a large shuffleboard court but I forgot to get a picture of that.
And that is life at Cocopah. We really enjoy our time here but I have to say I am looking forward to heading home and seeing our family and friends!
Until next time …
