I don't know where the time goes, why does it seem to move so quickly yet so slowly. We're still not doing much of anything but time continues to fly by.

We'll be here for another week before we move on to Catalina State Park, near Tucson. We're on a pretty golf course and we have good friends right next door! Pam and John have joined us and Lewis is beyond happy.
|It's John! does he see me? Hey John, I'm over here! John, Johnnnnn!
He's the only one to visit "inside", the rest of us (humans) limit our socializing time to when we can sit outside together or on the golf course. We're all careful and enjoy what we have.
The weather has been up and down. Sometimes sunny and warm, sometimes a little rain, sometimes dramatic cloud formations promising weather that they can't deliver.
|they smell so good.....
|I wonder if Mom knows the twins brought a friend.....
|what are you lookin at?
We're still pretty much only eating what I produce, we but did have our first take out meal in a very long time. Yes, it was just pizza but it felt grand!
|Dave takes Calico's pizza very seriously
Oh, and the pie......We're just too close to the Julian Pie Company to not have pie while we're here. Every day we're here. Strawberry/Rhubarb Pie, Cherry Pie, which one is best? We haven't decided and we're still in the discovery phase so it's pie every night.
|Strawberry/Rhubarb - last bite
We did just a bit of exploring one day. Since it has been raining everywhere around us we wondered if Coyote Creek was running and if there were any wildflowers nearby.

We followed DiGiorgio Road, past our rv park and the acres of citrus trees, until the pavement ended and it became sand. Just what I like!
Not much color this year.....some Ocotillo have begun to leaf out and flower, some just flowering with no leaves whatsoever.
A few weakly flowering Chuparosa dotted the wash but that was about all we saw. It's the journey, right?
A curious, twisted dead tree trunk caught our eye and was good for a few minutes of close inspection before we continued on. Small pleasures.
At third crossing we finally encountered water. We decided not to try and cross it, however, since there had been lots of serious rain in the mountains and the ground under the water looked "iffy", too new and silty for us to chance crossing twice. The fun was in finding it so we parked and walked up the bubbling stream awhile, seeing what we could see.

That just about wraps up what we've been doing since we last "talked" with you. We have another week, however, so who knows? Stay tuned.
