Thursday, December 24, 2020
A quiet day here at the Stinger "B" a few preparations for tomorrow as we will have company for dinner. It was an indoor cloudy and cool, windy day. It was a day to keep busy because as much as we love this life style today and tomorrow are days we especially miss our children and grandchildren. As I am writing this it is hard to believe how quickly the years have gone by. There are moments it seems like just "yesterday" we had little ones anxious for Christmas. Now those once little ones have little ones of their own.
We had a steady wind all day yesterday fortunately we parked pointed into the wind. It finally stopped at some point in the night as it was quiet when we got up this morning. Pulling the shades though revealed dull grey skies.
The one thing about a dark grey day is the sand dunes
shine bright in the distance.
On our way to Yuma and the sun is trying
to make an appearance.
On our way back I can see
St. Thomas Yuma Indian Mission in the distance.
This is a beautiful little church and the view from
their upper parking lot is breath taking.
We could not see the sun setting tonight though
it did light up the clouds as it went down.
Then we were treated to a pretty afterglow.
Some rosy pink in the clouds off to the Northwest.
A nice way to brighten the sky before darkness engulfed us.
We had wind most of today, though not as strong as yesterday, and not long after I took the above pictures we heard rain drops on the roof for a short time. We heard those drops a couple more times as the evening progressed. Still it was a good day to be thankful we are healthy and living our retirement dream.
We are glad you took the time to stop by!
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a joyous 2021.ReplyDelete
