This morning came early. I woke up at 6:30 feeling sore so I took a couple of Tylenol and went back to sleep. Finally got up at 8:45 and started breakfast after taking Yuma out. I could see the weekend warriors had moved into the area.It is a beautiful warm and sunny morning. While eating breakfast I decided that Yuma and I would investigate the Salton Sea area just east of us.This thinking is hard! As I sat there in my lounge chair I could see the kids racing by.
At noon, Yuma and I jumped in the Jeep and headed the three of four miles down to the sea.
|Certainly enjoying their day!|
|Yuma loves running in the sand.|
|Long way back to the Jeep.|
|If I tried driving down here this would be my fate!|
|Snow capped mountains to the north near Indio.|
This area is very mucky and smelly. Not much fun walking here. As we were walking along, a motorized paraglider flew right over us.I could see more up the beach so Yuma and I headed up to see what was up.
There were lots of folks in the sandy area of the beach practicing their craft. This area looks more like a beach by the sea. Long way from the water though.
|Getting ready to take off.|
Southern California folks certainly do like their winter weekends outdoors! After watching them for awhile, we drove north on the beach until we couldn't anymore.As we drove through the residential areas, I am surprised at the terrible roads and the poor condition most of the homes are in. Don't think there is much money in Salton City. We came on home and just enjoyed the warm afternoon. Took a shower and just can't do anything with my hair😀So glad the warm weather is back. After publishing this it will be time to fix dinner, watch a little TV and then go to bed once the kids get done running around this evening.
|They were everywhere.|
See you later.
You sure had your share of visitors in all types of powered vehicles. I'm sure they were fun to watch. I remember Salton Sea as being very mucky and smelly, but interesting. Were there quite a few birds? Always nice to have a relaxing, sunny afternoon.ReplyDelete
There are alot of recreational things around here on weekends. Saw a few sea gulls and so glad it's warm again.Delete
The Salton Sea used to be a luxury resort, but with no added water other than rain, it became so salty it killed all the fish with the resulting smell. Check close to the water and you will find all that "sand" is really tiny fish bones. That killed the resorts and people just moved away. They couldn't even sell their homes ... they just left. There are still a few hardy souls who stay because they have no where else to go. You can meet them at the local bar.ReplyDelete
Too bad there isn't a way to bring good water back. This could be a great area to live. Probably miss the locals. 😀Delete
I would have loved to see the paragliders....fun! Yesterday was a beautiful day here too.ReplyDelete
First time I've been up close to watch the prepare. Interesting.Delete
Your first picture had me swooning. The beautiful sky, sun and both you and Yuma relaxing.ReplyDelete
Salton Sea is definitely a must see but too stinky to hang around for too long.
So glad the warm mornings are back. I haven't noticed any smells except when I was right at the edge. Otherwise it was fine. Could be I have covid 😀Delete
Lots of boys with their toys out there! Hope they don't play with them all night!ReplyDelete
There are a number. They quit around midnight. Slowed down earlier, but not a bother. They'll be back at work on Monday 😀Delete
The longer the dead fish rot the less the smell.ReplyDelete
Glad the Weekend Warriors weren't too much of a bother.
Be Safe and Enjoy the Freedom.
It's about time.
Thanks Rick. I think it's the muck at the edge of the lake that smells.Delete
