LAKE HAVASU, AZ.
Lake Havasu was named for local Indians. The lake itself was formed by damming the Colorado River. Beautiful canyon country plus water, drew people to the area. Then when an entrepreneur developer bought the London Bridge and rebuilt part of it in Arizona, its charm and quaintness brought the real population rush.
Many communities established themselves around this beautiful lake. Like other parts of Arizona, the weather attracts Westerners who spend retirement winters here and live in a more northern clime. The attraction for snow birds and RVers is obvious. Like us, people enjoy the beauty and quiet serenity.
We left the area yesterday and spent the night in Yuma. We'll be here for several days. We are still experiencing a low signal.
