Wind has picked up substantially, temperature is dropping slowly and heavy clouds are moving in so I'm not interested in getting wet - cancel poodle bathing plans.
It will just have to be a nice lazy day. No complaints about that here!
I forgot to tell you about our pleasant and peaceful Thursday morning with fellow bloggers and full time RV'ers Gay and Joe (good-times-rollin.blogspot.com). We picked them up and made the short drive to the Matheson Wetlands Preserve. We were all looking forward to a nice stroll and the Preserve was just the place.
Dave and I had walked the Preserve last week without seeing many birds so we were hopeful, this time, we would have more success.
Dave and Joe followed Gay and I as we stopped and looked and listened along the gravel paths, raised boardwalks, and viewing blinds. They were deep in conversation.
Gay and I heard considerable rustling in the brush, birdsong and fleeting sightings but not much else. We did see a Spotted Towhee and a few Cinnamon Teals in the river, but the highlight of our stroll was a large and extremely loud rafter of turkey.
Some had vivid blue faces and some had knobby red ones. I don't know the difference between them, do you?
Around 12:30 we left the Preserve and went into Moab for a small Polygamy Porter and a delicious lunch at Zax. A nice, low key day indeed.
