It was a lazy day of just hanging out at the Stinger B and enjoying the day.
|The sun setting on what has been a"do nothing day".|
|A wonderful sideways burst of light between the clouds|
just before the sun slipped behind the mountains.
|A lovely glow as the sun slipped down behind the mountains.|
Then with a couple of bursts of light, in the clouds,
darkness started to descend on our day.

As I write this Tom is getting us ready to move up front to refill our fresh water tanks and dump the not so fresh. Not sure what else the day will bring as it unfolds but we will take it as it comes and enjoy the moments.
|The color was beautiful this morning |
while the sun was still below the mountains.
|Towards the southeast the clouds were tinged in pink.|
That little sliver of white in the upper left is the moon.
|The clouds in the northeast had touches of pink with a soft gold glow.|
|Even the clouds in the west had a soft glow of pink.|
As the sun started to rise behind the clouds in the east I loved how the clouds all around us kept changing.
|(Starting at the bottom)|
The sun made every effort to peek through the clouds.
|Pulling out onto the road and heading to the front to take|
care of business.
The rest of the day:
While Tom took care of business I took a ride looking for a place to park. We had a general idea of where I just needed to find a spot with a view we would enjoy looking at. After Tom was done he parked the Stinger B, out of the way, just off the road so we could take a ride to the spot I had found. to make sure he could get the motor home to it. We then had a late breakfast and I ran into Quartzsite to run a few errands. Mainly I was going in to buy beads. (I am more then willing to admit it, it is an obsession.) While I was gone Tom got us parked and then the wind started. When I checked the weather it said something like 15 mph winds with gusts of 23 mph. We think they were a little bit off with their "predictions" especially when Tom had to hold the Jeep door open so I could get out.
|This is our new patio view.|
You can see in the pictures below how quickly our view out the front window of the Stinger B changed.
|Then the rain started and we have been hearing it on and off all evening.|
Between moving, the wind, and the rain we decided to go out to dinner.
|A sliver of light over the mountains to the west as we were leaving|
to go into Quartzsite for dinner.
|To the southeast the clouds just look dark.|
|As the sun was setting the sky toward the east had a pink tinge and|
rewarded us with a rainbow.
|Looking down Main Street as the sun sets it is casting|
a glow on the mountains in the east.
|As we were going into Silly Al's I took this picture of tonight's sunset.|
"Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light.
Give thanks for your life and strength.
Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.
And if perchance you see no reason for giving thanks,
rest assured the fault is in yourself."
We hope you are enjoying a beautiful Spring.
