My Point of View

Where Are We Today
Another day in the desert, no projects to speak of, just my point of view on the day.

Sun popping over the mountain

 Not long after 7 a.m. we were both up ready to our day. After some blog reading, I said to Pat that I would go for a walk with her this morning, yes I am feeling alright. So off we went, back to the edge of "The Magic Circle", then headed in a westerly direction towards the front of the LTVA.
We came upon some nice open areas that we will remember for the next time we are here. As we walked we both took pictures of things that interest us, landscape, mountains and cactus.

There's the shadow guy waiting for her to catch up.

Looking towards Quartzsite

Love the shape of this old Saguaro Cactus
 After about an hour we were back to our spot with a couple of kilometers on our FITBITS. Breakfast was in order then dishes and a shower for me.
The rest of the day was taken over by laziness, reading and enjoying the bright blue cloudless sky.

There is a birds nest near the top

Clemson spent a good part of the day in his tent, in the shade.
 Happy hour happened at our place, while it was more like 2.5 happy hour, filled with good friends, great conversation and laughter. Cool air was setting in and the sun was making a nose dive for the mountains, so we said our goodbyes as everyone headed for home and start supper.

(Clockwise) George, Pat, Deb, Tom, Len, Brenda and Suzie

End of another day the setting sun said.

Meatballs and spaghetti  squash on the BBQ
 Supper tonight was spaghetti, mine cooked inside, Pat's  and the  meatballs, cooked on the BBQ. For dessert, we had rhubarb pie that Pat had made early today.

While I was BBQing, Pat took the little guy for a walk.

Good night from the desert in Quartzsite

After the dishes we both sat to write these words that you so kindly read. Thanks for taking the time to read my point of view, until the next time, take care and be safe. Look forward to reading your comments if you care to leave one.



  1. Wow, you are becoming a regular over there at the edge of the Magic Circle, I wonder if that's where the open spaces were. Hahaha

    Great pictures, it's almost impossible not take pictures of the cacti.

    Happy Hours looked fun, what a great crowd!Thanks for sharing your point of view Bill.

    1. Hahahahaha, actually, I believe Patsy is over there more times than I am. I agree about the picture taking of cacti. Happy hours are always a good time, well they better be or we would have to call them sad hours. That's my point of view.

  2. Nice that you are getting our walking right along and taking some pictures , of your point of view.

  3. It is so nice to just be able to relax and enjoy this way of life without always having to work. (I'm looking forward to it.)
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  4. You and Patsy really are getting in some nice walks. Enjoyed you pictures of the Saguaro. Relaxing day, beautiful blue skies, time with friends, followed by a nice dinner, and a quiet evening...another pretty good day in the desert...:)
