a day outside

Today was a good day. This morning I met my friend and her sweet baby at the DP harbor, one of my favorite places to walk, hang out, people watch, drink coffee, etc. Speaking of people watching there was an interesting NCIS moment that happened. As we were walking over the bridge to the island we noticed the FBI searching a big boat. We could not take our eyes away. We were dying to know what happened, but we did not ask the agents when we walked passed them later. Too chicken and it is not like they are going to tell us.

Later I took the girls to Casper Wilderness Park off Ortega Highway.

It is only a few miles from our house and feels a million miles away. Let me just say it was empty. Of course, it was 90+ degrees, but that place is always empty. They have an awesome playground area. Then we went up to the nature center, which was not open today, but we took in the views from the observation deck. We also viewed an old historic windmill and mining car.

There are mountain lions out here.

The dry San Juan Creek bed is down on the bottom right. If you look real close in the upper right portion of the picture and see the two white water towers, that is where I have worked for the last 16 years. Beautiful. (click to enlarge)

Here the girls are making rock pies. I have been informed they are just like mud pies, but with rocks. Of course.
