We've been here at Borrego Springs for a few days and the view from my window has changed drastically, while still staying the same.
We arrived to find strong winds kicking up sand in the desert, holed up inside to escape a very rainy Friday and sat outside reading on a picture perfect Saturday.
Thursday we managed to get out, between gusts, to check out our immediate surroundings and pick up a Julian pie.
A few miles past the entrance to our RV park we came across these huge creatures squaring off in the desert.
They are just a few of the whimsical metal sculptures, created by Ricardo Brecada, that pepper this area.
A few miles further down the same road and we found ourselves driving through miles of citrus orchards.
Heavy rain started Thursday night and kept up pretty much all day Friday. We stayed busy inside but enjoyed a wonderful hummingbird show right outside our window.
Hummingbirds are very territorial and this little immature Black Chinned boy spent the entire day zooming between our window feeder and his self appointed job at Beluga's mirror. It was an exhausting job.
He'd drink, then fly to the top of the mirror to, presumably, digest for a second or two before energetically attacking the other black chin he saw in the mirror.
Back and forth, back and forth, all day long.
I know....we're easily amused.
Today was warm and sunny, just lovely. Since it's a weekend, and we don't generally like to sight see on weekends, we planted ourselves on our patio and enjoyed the day.
