I’ve Been Lazy

I’ve been a bit lazy lately and haven’t really gone out for more photos. Bill and I have been busy with moving and getting adjusted to life in Mexico. So I decided to go back through some of my photos and re-post some of  my favorite photos from over the years. I hope to get back out on the streets soon for more photos. Enjoy!

Charco Del Ingenio

Kathy, ReAnn and I visited Charco Del Ingenio (botanical gardens) yesterday. I thought we might see a lot of flowers, but the blooming season has past. What we did find were all kinds of unusual critters. I have no idea what kind of bugs these are, but I’ve never seem them in the states. The gardens are located above town and it was a nice way to spend the morning. Enjoy!

Bronce a la cera perdida

There is a new (to me) art installation adjacent to the El Jardin. It’s a large bronze statue of an angel in a boat. It is very cool! Here are a few photos of the angel, the parroquia (church) and a wonderful trumpet man. Enjoy!

The Living Desert II

It’s been a warm weekend here in the desert, but I decided to head back out to the Living Desert to see how my favorite animals are doing. I managed to get a few nice photos. Enjoy!

The Living Desert

I decided to run out to the Living Desert in Palm Desert this morning to see what’s new. They’re doing a lot of construction that (I believe) will be ready in the fall. Anyway, it was toasty warm this morning so the animals weren’t too active, but I managed to get a couple of nice photos. Enjoy!

RIP Mr. Simon

Today, we lost our beloved Simon. He was only 8 years old and left us far too soon. We will miss him terribly, but we’ll keep him in our memories forever. He will always be “the boy” to us. Rest in peace, Simon. You gave us so much love and devotion. You will live forever in our hearts.

Comic-Con at the Palm Springs Library

Yesterday was Comic-con at the Palm Springs Library. Lots of kids and parents showed up for the event and some were in costume. The library provided a wonderful assortment of crafts and games for the kids of all ages. Darth Vader even showed! Enjoy.
