Sometimes different is good.......

7:35 am - Monday - February 24th - Borrego Springs, CA - 44° F, 82% humidity, wind 3 mph out of the northeast.....clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 80° F.  The view this morning......↴


The winds from Saturday, which appeared to have been vanquished, returned Sunday morning, and with the same ferocity.  That initially put a damper on some things I wished to accomplish outdoors, but Mr. Jello was in our corner this time....the winds began to abate by 10 am, and our windless solitude was restored once again.

The days are beginning to blend together as is often the case when you boondock. We pretty much have the same wonderful blue skies, and balmy temperatures every single day.  With a couple of exceptions the sunrises, and sunsets all look the same.  I don't mean to complain, but sometimes it is nice to get lots of clouds, or rain, or just something different.  Even having winds the past couple of days was different, and changed things up a bit.  Not that I like wind, but you know, it's different.  The sunny days are wonderful as we get a nice charge into our house batteries every single day, even when it's a little overcast, but sometimes it is nice to have 'weather'.

Around 1 pm we drove into town to fill up our 6 gallon water container to add to our fresh water tank.  After 20 days we are down 75 gallons of fresh water, and that should be enough to see us through our departure date of March 2nd.  Our black tank has just reached half full with just 9 days to go in our Anza Borrego sojourn.

After our return from town I spent some time repairing the wood trim on one of our entry steps by re-gluing it, and then using four 'C' clamps to apply pressure and hold it in place while the glue dried.  That was the sum total of my productivity for Sunday.  I spent the rest of the afternoon watching the final round of the PGA even being held in Mexico City.  Patrick Reed came from behind to win it by one stroke.

With cloudless skies we knew our sunset would be subtle, and it was.......


.....just a flash of light as the golden orb dipped beneath the western mountains bringing to an end another Anza Borrego day....thanks for stopping by!
