      It cooled down overnight again, 38F at 5 am,  Did not take long to turn some heat on and get toasty warm inside. With the lovely sunrise this morning came some warmth and was quite comfortable for my first walkabout, for about a mile. 
     Interestingly I saw some hoof prints in a few places from the burros,  but still have not spotted any yet. 
another nice desert sunrise
the burros have been here
nice landscaping on some sites here
       Shortly after 9 am our good friends Ron, Loree and Freddy had secured their coach and headed on out eastbound on their way home for some scenic drives. We had our hugs and see ya laters, safe travels guys and see you when we get back home,  in a month or so.

  1. Nice pictures of the fair. Those wood carvings would have interested me just for decoration in my kitchen. Looks like it is now the perfect weather and time to be in Ajo.

    1. It was a fun fair , I have made many of those wood carvings and still have a few on the go. We are loving this weather.

  2. The fair looked great loved the wooden kitchen ware. I hear the wild flowers are everywhere out there

    1. The wooden ware and carvings are very nice and fun to make. More wildflowers arriving every day

  3. What a nice surprise to find the Ajo festival. Something happened to your font, so teeny but it came back at the end of your post. :) You're not even near alien country yet.

    1. It was a nice surprise and interesting event for sure. Yeah my font went funky , was having issues with my intern et for a while on my phone, tried to fix it and copy and past to a new template, same thing, The aliens are after me I think.

  4. What a great market! I love spending time looking at all the goodies!!

  5. Looks like everybody turned out for the festival. So much fun for the small town, glad you stumbled over it and shared the experience.

    1. It was so nice to see this on a usually quiet day here in AJO.

  6. What a wonderful festival. Such vivid colours in some of your photos. The produce looked amazing. Glad you're enjoying your time there.

    1. (t was very nice , glad I decided to go to town for a few supplies or would have missed it,,
      Thanks Deb we are enjoying these wonderful clear blue sunny skies.

  7. Those fresh veggies at the fair looked amazing. Wish we could get some that good here where we live.

  8. I've been meaning to tell you, if you ever run out of your favorites to read try Michael McGarrity's books. Tularosa: A Kevin Kerney Novel Series Book 1. They are set in the SW and I think you might like them. McGarrity is an ex-cop so he does a good job writing this series.

    1. Hey Joyce thanks for the tip we will check him out and am sure we enjoying his books as well.

  9. The flea market would be just up my alley! Between good food and all those other goodies I know I'd enjoy it especially in beautiful weather! I'm so glad you enjoyed the pizza! I made on yesterday too to take over to our neighbor Karen's and she loved it too! I do enjoy your recipes as seen from the other night. Those tuna melts are so delicious!

    1. The pizza was excellent we both enjoyed it, will do it again, Glad your enjoy some of my recipes they are usually quick easy and tasty. Gotta do the tuna melt again soon.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
