We are in Glendale, AZ and Katie found a duck's nest full of eggs. The female duck, who was sitting on the eggs, jumped off the nest and quickly flew away, over to the water where the other ducks were swimming around.
|Duck eggs inside a grassy plant, there are 10 or 11; about the size of hen's eggs.|
Here is where we are parked today, at the edge of a large mall parking lot. There's a type of water canal with fountains down the middle and ducks swimming. It's a great place to hang for the day. I have the windows open and there's a little breeze. I can hear the birds singing and the fountains splashing. The parking lot is on one side, then a main road, and Cabela's is across the street. That's where we are going to spend the night.
|One of these females is the mom.|
There are palm trees and other desert plantings along each side of the water. Lots of birds, too. This black bird was singing to me in the sunshine:
|Ohhhh, solo mio...|
|...sta nfronte a te! Look at that face, isn't he cute?|
He had a beautiful singing voice.
This was Katie on our way here. She continues to love her dog car seat, and often climbs into it over the back of the passenger seat during the day to rest and look out the windows.
|Hi, Mom, I love you.|
Since she has the car seat, she sleeps more when we're on the road.
We are staying at Cabela's overnight and in the morning will visit my solar guy, Ron. My solar regulator stopped showing it's digital readout on Thursday and it has a 5-year warranty, so we'll see if Ron can fix or replace it. I'm planning to be there at 8 am, and after it's fixed, head on to New Mexico.
From me and Katie, have a good day, everyone! :)
