We stopped along the road on the Catcus Highway to take photos of the wild flowers...As you can see by my hairdo, the wind was blowing when Cindy took this photo of me. We totally lucked out when we got there as the Museum was holding an artisan craft fair...lucky us!
We had lunch at El Charro where Cindy and I enjoyed such a great meal.
Today is a pool day as it will be 88F today.
You are only given a little spark of madness. You musn't lose it.
Cindy arrives today for a week of fun and shopping..or shopping which is fun.
We hope to visit to several of the Botanical gardens within our area and I am sure that what ever we do it will be a great visit. Tomorrow we are heading to the Tempe Art's Festival. I am sure we will have plenty of photos to share.
First of all, we took the bus around the Zoo. It is a good way to get your bearings. The ariel tram ride even gave you a better over view and then we walked the Zoo from end to end. I am sure we must of missed a few things as it covers 100 acres
The animals are as follow:
Hippos, White Nose Monkey, Harpy Eagel, Okapi, and Malayan Tiger
How lucky we are to be part of a large family. Here I am with my brother Heinz and sister Evelyne. As you know, Evelyne is married to Richard. This is Richard with his 2 sisters, Janice and Maxine who join up and travel with them for parts of winter as well. We met up at their RV Park to enjoy lunch together. We have know each other's family for more than 40 years.
As you can see, I am trying to make my banners more interesting and to reflect the time of year.
Heading out this morning to see my sister Evelyne and Richard, and brother Heinz and Marlene. Some of them are heading back to BC and we are invited for lunch. Taking the camera, so who knows what I photos will capture my eye! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Photograph: a picture painted by the sun without instruction in art. Ambrose Bierce
~~~~ Karen and I had allot of fun at this jewelery course and came home with a reasonably nice bracelet that I am happy to wear. We learned new techniques on how to wire wrap, adding jump rings correctly and how to crimp the ends. I plan to make a few more!
How about those Olympics? We are so proud to be Canadian and to share with the world what a great host country we were.Who will ever be able to forget that nail-biter of the overtime goal by Sidney Crosby!!!
