I didn't take many photos at Leasburg, none worth posting unfortunately; I've gotten some good bird shots here at Percha. We were here in late April last year, so we're a month earlier right now. I don't know how the birding will be now, but the Robins are out and singing up a storm this morning. We are parked along the Rio Grande, but we're above it, so I can't see it from our site, but it's super close.
Katie and I walked down the path going along the river and there is definitely more water than last year. Thank you, Monsoons!
There is a small amount of water coming into the river through the pipes below the dam. Not a lot, but it's something.
I snapped a few bird shots that are below.

One of the problems here are the goat heads - I think that's what they call these stickers. Katie isn't too excited about walking very far because she keeps getting these stuck in her pads. I've been taking my shoes off outside The Palms and carrying them in to pull out the stickers.
Can you imagine stepping on these with your bare feet? Poor Katie!
I'm ordering another little dog stroller like the one along the left sidebar, but I want the 3-wheel style which will be better for off-road walking. Not only are there lots of stickers, but Katie's ankle keeps swelling, too, like it did last fall. She'll start out walking just fine, then stop and won't go any further. I check her ankle and it's swollen. She always walks back fine; she seems to know the half-way mark. So if I want to walk and not leave Katie home, a stroller will be the answer. That purple running stroller I got at Quartzsite would have been great for Katie here because the path along the Rio Grande is sand, but it was just too big to carry around and I think the dog one will be easier to travel with. This is what I ordered today:
I wanted to show you a few pictures from my granddaughter, Kennedy's, Launch Party for her jewelry business, Touched by Charms. It was last week and they had over 20 guests and did quite a bit in sales. This is really cool jewelry, for kids, parents and even seniors like me, but even so - Kennedy and Trish were quite surprised at how successful the first party was. They are flying to Sacramento and Vacaville to host two more parties in the next couple of weeks.
Below is a "candy bar" they had set up - nice, huh? My kind of party!
That's it for now - from me and Katie, have a great Tuesday, everyone! :)
