There is this park in Tucson called Agua Caliente that offers contrasting scenery to the normal Tucson landscape with cacti and more cacti. It’s an oasis of sorts and a hidden gem, reminding me of Palm Springs. There’s ducks and turtles in this large body of water that is surrounding by palm trees. On one of the walking paths, I happened upon this scene that reminded me of something from a fairy tale or some epic story like Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings, where the hero goes and meets the nemesis.
During a visit to Palm Springs with some friends, we visited Joshua Tree National Park. We didn’t go through the whole park (they say it takes 2 hours to drive through with no stops), but we did make some stops along along the way, including stopping at Skull Rock . The rock formations around the park as a whole were impressive, but it’s pretty cool to see how nature decided to make this ‘skull rock’.
Definitely would suggest going and seeing the park if you ever get a chance. It’s great to be in nature because sometimes when you’re stuck in the city or in the burbs where there’s a Target 10 minutes, you forget how great nature is.
Yogurt Bowl from this place called Raw Remedy.
This was a friends yogurt bowl and it looked too delish not to take a picture of before eating. I got one of their smoothies which was pretty good. I don’t remember what it was called, but it was purple and it tasted like it was healthy. I know this because usually with unhealthy stuff there’s just too much sugar from un-natural stuff… and chocolate.
I walked these streets for most of my life. In moving, and coming back to visit I was definitely was able to the city in a new perspective and with a new appreciation. It made me realize how often times we can easily become get trapped in our own bubble unless we go out of way to break out of it.
I guess I could have went and found more fancier windows, but a bird apparently flew into our window, left it’s mark – and probably died.
Where that bird went after slamming into the window, I have no idea, but I suppose it’s time to clean off the windows.
I realize, in moving to the desert city of Tucson, that I need to up my sandal game. My stiletto game is on-point I think, but after living in Seattle, all I got are these flip flops for sunny days.
So I’ve been rocking these since I moved here. Even though it rained, I still wore them.
My husband and I were out and about at the 5 o’clock hour. It was at no where exciting, just Lowes. Maybe some people find that exciting.
I realize that this is the 3rd picture of my dog, but she was smiling so… mission accomplished.
I was getting ready to do a creative photo of my bedside, and the dog decided to lay down where I was going to take a picture. So, I decided to go with the flow.
