Yesterday, a very warm day with not a cloud in the clear blue sky,
we ventured away from the city for some time exploring the
mountainous desert countryside. Saguaro cacti, prickly pear,
scrub bushes cover the hills and valleys
To many of us this is a lot different from where we live - myself
included where I'm surrounded by massive oaks, hickories,
magnolia and pines etc.
This land is stunning scenery of a much different kind.
Every morning we awake to sunshine and clear blue
skies - must say I love that part of Arizona living - however
tomorrow we'll be packing up and heading home to chilly
North Carolina now certainly carpeted in rusty colored
leaves and early morning frosts.
Thanksgiving travel, seeing family, and enjoying a change of pace
has been wonderful, but heading home will be pleasant too, and I will
need to "get my skates on" and start on preparations for what will be
a quiet Christmas.
More from Raleigh later this week.
