A very Happy Easter to all.
Our time in Casa Grande is coming to a close. We have had a wonderful time but it is getting hot. I know that it is a DRY heat but an oven also has DRY heat – LOL!!!
Did you all get to see that blood moon? I stayed up but my pictures did not come out the best (I need to practice those night shots!)
The full moon rising over the desert on the 14th.
We did learn that the glow in the east as the sun sets in the west is actually the earth’s shadow – also known as Venus’s Girdle. Thanks Steve for the information.
The eclipse starting:
Is that another planet or ??????:
The desert is also starting to bloom.
The saguaros with lots of flowers and buds:
And more (these were taken from around the park):
We have also been visiting the local Moose Lodge and Elks Lodge. This night we were celebrating Katy’s first night as a Moosette. (L-R: Jan, Katy, Gary, Andy, Diane, Ken):
Always a good time. Jan and Ken have a home in Arizona City and that is where we all were today for Easter dinner – thank you so much Jan and Ken for hosting. A wonderful time with good friends.
In February, Andy got a smartphone and yesterday, I got one – this is going to be a lot of fun (I think). Learning new things is good for us – keeps the brain active.
Tomorrow starts our summer travels. First stop will be Show Low, Arizona. We know many folks who stay there for the summer (much cooler) so we thought we would check it out.
Stay tuned and enjoy today!
