Tuesday, November 30, 2021 - Whitewater Draw, McNeal, AZ, Day 2 - 0 Miles, 3,319.3 Miles for the Trip

I'm not a morning person, at least since retiring. Never the less, I climbed out of bed after my 7:00 AM eye drops and headed to the pond, hoping to catch the mass exodus of cranes heading for the fields to eat. Evidently the Sandhill Cranes deal with mornings earlier than I do. They were already gone, with a few left on the far end of the pond. I did see a few ducks. Last night the arrival of the huge flocks didn't happen until the light was gone. I guess if I want the photo, I'm going to have to get up & out before dawn - don't think that is going to happen. By the way, still cold at night - 31°F early this morning, another reason for staying in bed!

After returning to the trailer and breakfast, I read for a bit then headed out for a walk around the pond around 11:00. A number of cranes are back so I took a few images.

Another clear, hot day. I sat in the shade reading, and eventually headed back down to the pond when the light started to look interesting.

I didn't stay too long; the mosquitoes were even worse than yesterday.

Dinner was an evol Butternut Squash & Sage Ravioli microwave dinner.

Until Tomorrow -
