We Move....But Not Far

I awoke to a cloudy day. We did have some rain overnight. Gordon was over at the entrance booth at 6:00 a.m. to see if we could get another site here. At that point there was only one RV in overflow and their log said that 15 people were to be leaving today so it was looking good for us to get another site. We had to come back at 9:00 a.m. I went for my walk, had breakfast and such then we drove around the campground to see who was leaving. Ah, site 74 is empty. That one was on our list of preferred sites so away to the entrance booth we went for 9:00 a.m. Now there were 3 RVs in overflow but we had no problem booking site 74.

This is a dead barrel cactus.

Here's our new site.

After packing up, going to the dump station, getting back to our new site and getting set up it was 11:50 a.m. So, we're here for another two weeks! We did have some sunny breaks this morning but when we were setting up it started to get cloudy and about an hour after we were set up it started to rain lightly. Since the campground showers aren't right beside us anymore and it was raining, we drove down to the shower house. Hopefully we won't have to do that often.

We weren't set up for very long when Mr. & Mrs. Gila Woodpecker arrived at our hummingbird feeder. Here's Mr. Woodpecker. They are so funny! The hummingbird feeder is right outside our dining room window in the palo verde tree.

I made some bracelets this afternoon. I had purchased some wooden beads at Michaels last week so concentrated on using them.

Around 4:00 p.m. the sun was coming out and the rain had stopped so the sky was interesting. I went out and took some photos, lots of the Superstition Mountains with the sun shining on them and lots of pretty little birds sitting in the ocotillo. The ocotillo are very pretty now all green with their little red flowers on top.

The mountain looked so pretty today with the sun shining on it.

This little cactus wren was cute all puffed up and sitting at the top of an ocotillo.

Gordon took off to climb the Merkle Hills to get some photos of the pretty skies but I stayed
behind as from our new location I can see the sunset from my recliner!
