January 10 (Wednesday)
Today we went to the University of Arizona Moody Demonstration Garden in Yuma. The garden was planted by city, county and University staff and volunteers. It's a great way to be introduced to various plants, trees and cactus that live in and around the area.
I took well over 200 pictures and certainly won't bore you with all of them, but here are a few, well quite a few of our favorites. When I take pictures in a setting like this I try to get a shot of the sign, then a close-up of the detail, then get a picture of the whole plant if possible. This way I have a record for my own purposes, and hopefully helps when sharing. If you are familiar with desert plants then just scroll to the bottom.

After this workout (ha!) we thought we should try out Lin's Chinese Buffet. It comes highly recommended so today was as good a day as any. There will be NO supper tonight!

|Fruit for dessert.....and ice-milk ice cream. Low cal all the way!|
Tonight we were treated to a very nice sunset. Once the sun goes down the colors linger for nearly an hour before night takes over. That was Our View From Here!
