Woke about 7:45 and was up by 8:15 and fixing coffee. Can't remember if I mentioned it or not but I'm no longer using the percolator pot anymore. I have moved up to the electric model and I like it better. Only problem is I have to turn the generator on while it is percolating, but I don't need it to keep the pot hot.
Had my two coffees and 12 Ritz crackers and it was quite warm when I stepped outside. Few clouds but mostly sunny. Supposed to get to 70 today. :) We walked over and chatted with Tom and Deb until around noon. Then Yuma and I went back home to finish breakfast. Quite warm outside.
It wasn't till later in the afternoon that Yuma wanted to go somewhere, so decided we would drive into Ajo and wander around in areas I hadn't been to before. It had clouded up and without the sun the temperature had dropped to 66 and it felt cool.
Driving along just outside of town on the old highway into Ajo, I saw lots of ravens off to my left. Found the town dump.
|Ajo is to the southwest of the dump|
The next place I stumbled onto is the Ajo Cemetery. I was surprised at how many residents were here. I think there are more here than living in Ajo.
The other thing that surprised me is the condition it is in. It is to say, the least, unkempt. After visiting the Darby Well Cemetery the other day way out in the middle of nowhere and seeing how neat and clean it was, this cemetery is a disaster.
It was nearly 5 o'clock by the time we returned to the White Lion and time for dinner. Had a nice steak with grilled potatoes and corn. It was yummy.
Just as Yuma and I finished dinner, Tom stopped by and said he was getting ready to start a fire, so we headed over to sit in front of the raging fire. There was no wind and the clouds had dissipated, so the evening was perfect. After a couple hours, the air was cooling down as was the fire, so it was time to head back home.We had a very nice relaxing visit and once we got home, it was time for dessert and get the blog done. Had a very relaxing day and now it's time to call it a night.
See you later.
