By now having checked out the weather reports for Winterhaven and Quartzsite we knew this would be our last night here. I always find it bittersweet when it is time to leave a place we have truly enjoyed but then if there is not a little sadness in leaving why spend time there. At the same time with leaving there is always the opportunity of adventure ahead.
(A reminder for myself this evenings pictures were taken using my zoom lens.)
Wednesday Morning, February 24, 2021
Our last morning here and I was determined to enjoy every minute. It was one of those perfect mornings to sit out and watch the sunrise over the mountains. Though a little bit chilly there was no wind and the early morning desert was quiet. I could hear highway noises in the distance and a train then its whistle as it crossed Ogilby Road just a short distance from us. Yet even those noises seem muffled in the early morning light where everything seems soft and just slightly blurry. At some point I could hear that Tom had gotten up because I could hear the sounds of coffee being made. As always a welcome sound because I know he will bring it out and join me in a short time. In the mean time I will enjoy this alone time watching the beginning of the day unfold.
We have enjoyed our time out here spent across the wash from Cathy and Shane. There is a certain sadness in the leaving but we know we will see them again down the road. For now they have adventures to enjoy and so do we. It was a wonderful nineteen days.
