Random acts of kindness on the road

Our neighbor at the spectacular Anza-Borrego Desert State Park suddenly appeared in our site, bearing gifts.

"I've got some beanies for you," she said, handing over a colorful head warmer for me and a calming neutral cap for Johnny. "It's my thing, I just love to knit." 

Wow, how freaking cool. Thanks for the generous gesture, Debbie!

Before she returned to her Class A, we learned she was from San Diego and her cute dog's name was Daisy. We also got a cool tip on where to camp near Lake Havasu, a RV-centric destination in the Colorado River Valley. We're going to check out Havasu RV Resort down the road for sure. 

As we sat under the starry skies later that night, we talked about how the world would be a better place if there were more people in it like Debbie. She definitely gave new meaning to the phrase "good neighbor"!
