Moon set was cool, and beautiful blue skies sure did it for us.

Where are we today ?
      Hey today is Wednesday, wow how the time flies when we having fun we have been here a week already ! Thinking pretty soon we need to go somewhere else. But still have a few things on our agenda we play it by ear.
        This morning a very interesting moon with a ring around it. Not sure what it was but kinda cool. Think it means something but not something I know about. Any input out there ?
the moon this morning, not great pic of the ring
but I don't have a great camera either
           Got a few miles walkabout today just enjoying the desert.  Right behind us a few desert bushes make for nice scenery.
right behind us
        Now we can enjoy some quality reading time under our awning, Very intense desert sun here!
under our awning is nice
this guy has his trailer and a boat on his truck,
nice way to bring it along
enjoying the shade, under
beautiful blue sunny skies
         Then about 3 pm "Happy Hour" with John, Barb, Clancy and the dogs. Sharing more information and flapping our gums. Always a nice social time.
         Whipped up a salad and grilled a couple bone in chicken breasts and an acorn squash for supper. Sun setting in the desert here as the Weber Q is done.
nice
worked for us and leftovers too
        That was it for us after another perfect day, soon time to call it a night. Blogging and a Tv show just to wind down.
          Glad that y'all dropped by again, Hope you enjoyed your day as much as we did.

  6. The ring is called a Halo. We have seen them several times, especially around the sun. They are caused by the light of the sun or moon passing through a very thin layer of ice-crystal clouds in the upper atmosphere. The ice crystals refract the light of the moon, similar to the way water droplets in the lower atmosphere can refract sunlight to produce a rainbow. Aren't they lovely!
