Where do you belong?

On the spur of the moment Saturday night we decided to travel down to Yuma for my Monday dental implant surgical appointment on Sunday, spend the night at Shilo Inn, go to the dentist and then return on Monday afternoon......there is nothing much worse than driving into the rising sun in a 2001 VW Beetle with sun visors which give marginal sun visoring coverage.  According to my brother-in-law, Elliott, this design flaw was corrected in a later model.  

At any rate we went to bed Saturday evening with the knowledge we had secured a reservation at The Shilo Inn and slept in Sunday morning until close to 7:30.....nice!  We went out to do some shopping and run the car through a car wash around 11, and were home by noon.  We departed Fontana around 2 pm with temps in the low 90's which we saw climb as high as 98 as we passed through Indio.  The drive south was completely uneventful.....I drove the first 110 miles to the ARCO Travel Center in Salton City, and TLE the final 108 to Yuma.....we arrived just before 5:30, and were on our way over to Prison Hill Brewing by 6......

PHB* - This is where I belong!

.....we had planned to sit outside, but the outdoor temps were still a little warm when we arrived at 6:15, so we found a secluded table inside and had barely touched butt to seat when our server arrived to take our drink orders.  We immediately ordered a couple of brews.....TLE a double cappuccino, and for me a harvest amber....once I took that first sip I felt at home.  Prison Hill is one of our favorite micro has above average brews made on site, and a great selection of local draft brews, and some of the best micro brewery food we have ever had.  I ordered the deep fried avocado appetizer, then their fish and chips for dinner.....TLE ordered some kind of grilled sausage.....I especially love their coleslaw! We sat talking, sipping and eating for about an hour before heading back to our room for the evening.  

To cap off the evening I watched the L.A. Dodgers defeat the San Francisco Giants 3-1, and the L.A. Clippers defeat the Portland Trailblazers in game one of the first round of the NBA playoffs.

Thanks for stopping by!
