Where are we today ? 
 clic a pic to enlarge it
       Just another wonderful quiet night and a good sleep.  Quite mild again 55F at 5 am  and by 10 it was 74F on a slightly overcast day, Another very nice warm desert day.
     No visible sunrise this morning and I did get short early morning walkabout. Then into Olsens in Ajo for a few groceries.
nice colourful flower
so beautiful and peaceful here
the quiet trails perfect
lots of nicely decorated sites
      After the groceries I stopped by the Open Pit copper mine just because I was in town anyway.  Back in the day this was the lifeblood of the community here. Now just one big hole in the ground.
      The new Cornelia Copper mine in AJO  this was shut down in 1983, The open pit mine is 1.5 miles across and 1,100 feet deep.
one huge hole in the ground
       Back home, putter around for a while enjoying this very nice day and at 81F overcast and no humidity it almost felt cool.
our afternoon views.
      Our friend Ron got a new tube for Loree's bicycle at Olsen's on Ajo. All fixed up and taking it for a test drive.
looking good Ron
a bit later he took Freddie for a run with his bike
     Then about 3:30 over to their pace for a fun Happy Hour, just because we could and they are here.
Ron even took a rare picture of us
Ron, Loree and Freddie
gotta love Freddie so beautiful playful and friendly
         Soon was time for us to head home and whip to supper, Tonight a breaded pork Schnitzel. I whipped up with fried onions and mushrooms topped with shredded cheese and homemade salsa to go with our salad,.
love a tasty Schnitzel
wow so tasty and tender , melt in your mouth
neighbour played taps so we caught a nice sunset
     A perfect way to end another perfect desert day.
     Thanks for taking the time to drop on by.
