Shiny Stinger "B" (Staying Put and An Appointment in Scottsdale--Catch up Post)

Saturday, March 23, 2019

We had planned on going over to Tombstone for lunch today but then realizing it was Saturday decided maybe not today and decided Monday would be a better choice. Before I could say, so what do you want to do today, Tom said he was going over to the office to get a permit to wash the Stinger "B" which is exactly what he did. I ended up running into Sierra Vista to pick up a few things and by the time I got back he had the glass cleaner out and was working on the windows.

Tom grilled hamburgers for dinner and just as he was bringing them in I realized I did not even go out and take a picture of the sunset. I actually did not take one picture today. Below is a picture of last nights sunset which I forgot to add to the 100 plus photos in last nights post.

Not a bad day. The Stinger "B" is clean. I took care of some errands and three batches of laundry are done.

So this was a stay put and go no where type of day. The pictures are of the sunset or I should say what was left of it when I decided to grab the camera and go out the door. It truly was a day of not moving.

The sun had dropped out of sight

but there was a little bit of color in the clouds in the southwest.

Always enjoy the way the mountains in the east light up when the sun has
dipped behind the mountains in the west.
Things got a little brighter in the southwest

and there was a faint bit of pink in the eastern sky.

The sun was gone but left a little bit of color behind.

Trying to get a picture of the little bit of pink in the clouds I did manage to
get the moon peaking out from under one of the clouds.
The moon is right in the center of this picture.

So ended the daylight on a very quiet day in our neighborhood.

I had an early follow up appointment with the eye doctor in Scottsdale this morning, a couple of issues he wanted to be sure had cleared up, so we were on our way before the sun was up.

Sunlight is faintly showing behind the mountains.

and the mountains in the west have caught its light.
The flash made everything greener and brighter.)

On I-10 heading east it is getting brighter.

The sun's light slowly lights up the landscape.

It has popped up. Excuse the dirty windshield.
Even though we are moving right along

I can see the light making its way across the desert floor.

Appointment done we are now making our way back west on I-10.

We stopped in Avondale for lunch and some quick shopping then we were on our way again.

It is nice how several cities in Arizona honor those in the service.
I only caught these two pictures.

A blur of orange wildflowers.

With clouds come lots of 

shadows in the mountains and on the desert floor.

There are a lot of semis driving across our country.
This afternoon I decided to take some pictures of a few.
Notice the middle right one, I have never seen an Amazon one before.

I would say these drivers move a lot of "stuff" we all enjoy using .

The light is constantly changing
as clouds float by
causing light and dark areas to appear.

We were back in time to watch 
the sun

slowly set
behind the


We had some nice color around us after the sunset.

The moon rising with some color
still with us from the sun.

Super Vivid

Our home in the blue twilight.

It was a long day but it ended with a beautiful sunset to enjoy before we settled in for the night.

We are glad you stopped by for a visit and hope you enjoyed the pictures.
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.


  1. You have definitely been keeping busy before and since your move.
    Be Safe and Enjoy some down time.

    It's about time.

  2. Love the desert shots and the sunsets. We miss them!
    Good point about the truckers. We curse the traffic and hate getting stuck behind them but where would be be if the trucks disappeared? Our economy depends on them. I just hope the trucker I'm passing doesn't fall asleep or get distracted by his cellphone!

    1. We agree about hoping the truckers do not fall asleep or get distracted. I, also, hope they stay safe. So many times, from our vantage point, we see cars make stupid decisions when passing semis and we hold our breath.

  3. Love all the pictures are right about the truckers! We love the backroads when we can take them over the interstates! Glad your eye issues have been taken care of!

    1. Thank you, Shirley. We love the back roads, also. Unfortunately, sometimes the Interstate is the best choice for us.
