When I go for my three or four mile hike around the area, this is what I see. The city of Wellton does a fine job of presenting itself to the snow bird public.
This is the field directly across the street from the road into town and also across the street from the road to the RV park. We all marvel at the precision of the rows. We all watch their every step, so I guess we could start our own veggie fields. The best thing is that we have good prices on veggies from the locals. Notice the proximity of the railroad. They are not allowed to blow the horn at the crossing in the middle of the night in deference to us snow birds.
Sometimes I take a walk directly west; actually most of the people in the park do who don’t want to walk the inside of the park. This goes past Tier Drop RV park and Valley View Estates. Gary and I stayed at Tier Drop in May of 2005 after his the operation on his arm from the IV infection. Pioneer was open, but they didn’t do business in the summer. Valley View Estates is just some fields that a farmer sold to a local developer, but it does have a pretty view.
The landscaping on the right hand side of this picture is different from four years ago. They had planted that area with California poppies and I had some kick ass pictures of that, and it was the screen saver on my old lap top. They may be on my old lap top, but I don’t know how to get them back. Oh well! I love to take pictures of clouds. You never know when you might need them for some scrapbooking project.
Speaking of scrapbooking projects, my newest friend Norma has drawn me into the card making group; however, I did tell her about Photo Shop Elements 9, so we will soon both be into that. We also went to Alagodones, Mexico with her cousins on Monday. Nobody had a camera, but we did have a great time. Our new singles group is going back on December 4, and I will have pictures of that. What I do have are pictures of is last Thursday’s hike. We are supposed to hike this Thursday, but since it is Thanksgiving and we are all going to a big dinner, I don’t know.
We found an abandoned geocache site. I think that would be fun to do, and they do have some groups around here.
Looks like we’re going to have some weather for the next few days. That only makes for good picture-taking.
