As they say “what a difference a day makes”.
We awoke to the sound of the wind blowing and the awnings on the trailer slides flapping. The wind has blown all day today and so far is continuing into the night. Today’s high was 10 degrees cooler than yesterday. The local weather report says more of the same tomorrow and this evening the local CBS channel went off of the air due to the wind.
We took Raider for a long walk through the West Wetlands Park next to the RV Park, but the wind got stronger the longer we were out. Consequently today was spent mostly reading. If you are interested in history Over the Edge of the World: Magellan's Terrifying Circumnavigation of the Globe is a great read. http://www.amazon.com/Over-Edge-World-Terrifying-Circumnavigation/dp/006093638X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1200546481&sr=1-1
I haven’t written much about birding lately but, no matter where we are or what we are doing, we are always birding. While walking Raider along the river a few evenings ago we spooked a Green Heron which is a new year bird. We have also noticed that there seem to be plenty of Cooper’s Hawks in Yuma. We have seen them in several parts of Yuma.
