I know I haven't been talking much about knitting these days, instead it's been about Arizona! Last week the humidity was so bad...or after a week in AZ I had acclimated myself to NO humidity...today the A/C's are going in the windows cause the weatherman is forecasting higher humidity heading into the weekend. Today was very nice, but as a native SW Virginian I know that's NOT normal for this time of year!
How about some more vacation?
Part 1 Yeah, I know you are going to get tired of this, but I promise I'll shut up...soon!
About Arizona...I've been going through my pictures to
In the evening we would venture up to change for dinner and find our place here...
The Vista Lounge, and OH what a Vista! Here's a small sampling of the "Wildlife" you could see.
While enjoying a drink and knitting we watched these cute little critters...
There were 9 little ducklings with their Momma every afternoon.
Desert Cottontails...were EVERYWHERE! Just call it Bunny Heaven! In the afternoon they would come out and lounge in the shade and the little ones would chase each other. It was as though they were employed by the resort and did their "thing" at a scheduled time!
This is the Gamble's Quail...I like to call the "Kramer Bird"...remember "Seinfeld"? The pair would come out, both have "the feather", as their head bobbed around that little feather reminded me of Kramer's hair! I'm sure he was wondering how to rid himself of that pesky feather!
The Saguaro Cactus where amazing, after reading up a little about them, it takes up to 75 years before they grow one arm! Look at this one:
How old do you think this one is? They are an endangered species because of their slow growing nature and "plugging"! Wanna know what that is? Read this story about one David Grundman, he even had a song written about him...too bad he's not around to hear it!
You can see Four Peaks in the background, part of the Tonto National Forest.
Well...plenty of knitting to do! Stay tuned...
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!
