Great Desert Day

Today has been one of the days I'll treasure. Not because I got the dogs bathed and the laundry done. Not because it's the last day we'll spend in the Bounder.

The weather has been just right, not too cold, not too hot. We did get things on our list done, laundry, dogs cleaned up, a few last minute business things taken care of. I will treasure this day - just because. We're here, we're healthy and we're loving what we're doing. It just doesn't get much better than this.

We visited with friends, made plans, took a walk in the desert with Sandra and Gordon, got some good pictures. It's just been a good day.

The wildflowers are becoming more prevalent in the desert every day. This is a new one for me, Globemallow.

We also got treated to some birds and critters.

I think this is a Pyrrhuloxia.

A Curve-Billed Thrasher

A Mourning Dove
Here's a Round-tail Ground Squirrel

On our walk with Sandra and Gordon, here's Sandra.

Gordon, at work.

We will be taking the Bounder to La Mesa RV in the morning for the big trade. It's possible we'll spend the night there, if we don't finish moving. Sandra and Gordon will be leaving Friday morning, so I hope we get to see them before they take off. We'll certainly miss them!

Another couple we've met here, Mike and Janna, have a little black Miniature Schnauzer named Jazz. They are leaving tomorrow, so we said our "See Ya's" to them as well.

It's just been a great desert day!

Ellie, I noticed in the ad for Diamond RV that they restrict to one week stays? Is this correct.
