As a result of our new Players Card at the Riverside Casino we got a half off buffet. So for $4.99/person we really couldn't pass that up.....could we? Nope! So we headed over to the Riverside. Still too early to eat, we went to see some more cars that we missed on Monday. There is another display set up on the first floor. Not as large as the third floor display but certainly worth a visit.
|Electric cars aren't new. This cute little number is from 1995.|
|Cool! A Delorean!|
The dinner bell was ringing so off to the buffet we went. No pictures but the meal was pretty good and the view was great. Right on the river. On the way back to the truck we saw a couple of tour buses. Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee are in town for some concerts this week. Nice way to travel. I'm guessing they are pretty nice inside but we didn't have the nerve to ask for a tour!
After lunch we really needed to get some exercise so we parked by the river and took a walk. What a surprise, the cactus and other plants are starting to bloom.

|Nice walking trail.|
|Yep, pretty tiny.|

Next was a short ride up hwy 163 a few miles then down the gravel road toward Telephone Cove camping area. The road isn't too rough for the most part, just a few tight sections and hills but doable by most rigs.
The beach camping is very popular and folks come and go on a daily basis. The limit is seven days of free camping.
|Nice rock croppings|
|Great beach camping.|
There were a couple rigs with Manitoba plates and sure enough it was Lorne and Sue from A Place Called Away. We had followed their blog for a couple years now but had never met. They were camped with their friends Harold and Pat. We didn't have a long chat but we'll cross paths again either around Vegas or back home in Alberta in April. So nice to meet more bloggers and friends!
Back to Bullhead City for some quiet time. A very light supper as we were still full from lunch. I'm done with buffets!
.........and that was Our View From Here!
