A little break from the real world at Lake Havasu

Our destination at London Bridge was a beautiful oasis.

That’s London Bridge  behind me.  It was built in the 1830s and originally spanned the River Thames in London, England.  It was sold to the city of Lake Havasu City, dismantled in 1967 and relocated to Arizona.

Along side of the London Bridge were some great little restaurants including the Javalina Cantina where Dave got a burrito that was nearly as big as his head.

We loved staying at the Laughlin Avi Casino KOA.  It was right next door to the casino, where I spent my allowance.  (A little more quickly than I wanted to).  The KOA itself is clean, and lovely, with plenty of space to walk the dogs.

And the sunsets were amazing!

We left Laughlin after a few days and went to our next stop, The Islander Resort on Lake Havasu.  One of the things I missed over the summer spent in Williams was a view of the water.  With that in mind, we searched for something that was right on the water.

Yes, it was pricey.  But for two days, we enjoyed this…

Yep, we were right on the water.

  1. I really enjoyed your post. I learned alot about the areas you are visiting. They are beautiful!!!!! Looking forward to your next post.

  2. Hi Dave and Suzy,
    Luv your blog. My significant other and I are just beginning to plan our journey as camp workers. We currently live in Tucson and it would be great to stop by and chat with you two regarding your experiences regarding the camper life.
    Like yourselves, we really enjoyed Laughlin and Lake Havasu. They have a really nice golf course there.

    1. Hi Grace!

      Congratulations on your decision to become full time travelers! We left Atlanta 2 years ago and have never regretted a thing! Work camping is an adventure in itself. You meet lots of great people, have lots of great experiences, and get to look at an area of the country as the locals do.

      We will be in Tucson until April 1. Hope to see you sometime!

  3. When you go on a tour for up to 6 hours, what do you do with your dogs? Do they stay in the RV ? Thanks for any info, as we have a dog and don’t visit many places for long periods of time because of our pet.

    1. Hi Dee!

      Since beginning traveling in the RV and working at campgrounds, our dogs have always been with us. They consider the coach their home and have no problem being alone while we are gone. We have left them for as long as 8 hours while working our jobs at the campground. They keep each other company and are good about not messing up the coach.

      We generally put all the blinds down when we are gone so that they do not see anything going on outside that will make them bark, we turn the lights on, and the music up. They usually listen to Ozzie’s Boneyard. My dogs are head bangers. LOL!

      I think it helps that there are two of them to keep each other company. In the real world when we were commuting into Atlanta every day for work, we were gone an average of 12 hours a day. One of the many perks of no longer doing that is being able to spend more time with them.

      1. Okay, thanks for your fast reply. I was just curious because we have a furboy and wasn’t sure if we could leave him alone in the RV for a long period of time while we out touring. I would hate for someone to report us for leaving an animal alone like that, especially if he barked, which he does if he hears an unfamiliar noise. Thanks again.
