This morning, Yuma and I slept in till 8 a.m. Beautiful and sunny, but a little windy and cool. Promises to be a very nice day though.
It was so late by the time I finished the blog last night, I didn’t bother with dinner again, so this morning, after all my morning duties, I had bacon and eggs with the OJ and half a grapefruit. By this time it was 11 in the morning. I used to think if I didn’t get up and get going by 7 a.m., I was wasting the day, but now that I am older, getting going by 11 is just fine.
We decided to rest a little today. Yuma can’t help but clown around for the camera.
We did take the Jeep around part of the lake so you can see how beautiful it is. The residents of the dusty, dry city of Yuma are lucky to have a wildlife area like this so close for them to enjoy.
You can see the dock and launching area in the distance.
This is a pretty little inlet in the canal on the east side of the road I am driving. The Yuma Proving Ground is over there.
Here’s the boat dock and boat launching area.
You can see the tower of a base on the Yuma Proving Ground and the Castle Dome Mountains in the background.
There are several peninsulas on the lake with palm trees.
Yuma just had to run out to the end of the peninsula and scare all the Coots.
I can tell Yuma is happy to be out in the country again, so he can run and sniff without cars around and being tied to a leash.
The landscape here in the Yuma area is so much different than Ajo. No Saguaro cactus. In fact very few cactus of any kind. It is very dry, dusty and brown. Everything looks like it has dust on it. Maybe it does. But it still has beauty.
It turned out to be a beautiful day for driving and walking around the east side of the lake today. Actually got in about three and a half miles of walking today.
See you later.
