Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Today has started out to be hot. The weatherman is talking about record breaking temperatures over the weekend. I am glad it is warm, but 70’s would be fine with me, but I better not complain or I will get in trouble back home.
After exchanging Valentine’s cards, we had breakfast, then put all the dirty clothes, empty water bottles and garbage in the jeep, and headed for town. Started the generator before leaving so we would be fully charged by the time we return. I am tired of that thing and will be glad to have solar panels so I don’t have to listen or smell that thing each day.
After we finished with the laundry, we took a small tour of Ajo. On the south side, there appeared to be new apartment homes that were brightly colored. There were several blocks of them with only one road in and one road out. Kind of like a gated community for the average folk.
There is a beautiful full wall mural that meshed with the roof angle of the adjoining building. If you look at the mural closely you will find many different subjects within. Look closely at the clouds and you will see cowboys on a cattle drive; different animals in the mountains scene, etc. We stopped by the home/art studio of Mike who did the mural. Wasn’t sure if he still lived there, so did not stop in. There is a lizard engraved in concrete on the side of the building.
See you later.
