Summer is hot here in the Valley...103 yesterday. Just after 1200 and it's 93 out there.
We've been keeping an eye on the pauraque down by the back gate. She kept moving her nest...Last we say was in the middle of the drive last Saturday. But she's gone now. I can't imagine why any bird would want to lay eggs in direct sunlight. I know that the one egg we saw looked just like the rocks she was sitting on.

Jim has been painting, not a job he cares for, but the Clubhouse looks ever so much better. It's a lighter color than the yellowish shade it was before.
He's now working on the North laundry and it's going to match the clubhouse
That's our rig, just wanted to show you how tall the Mexican Bird of Paradise is on the site next to us. It apparently thrives in this weather. As does the Esperanza
All of the palm trees here and at Retama have been trimmed. Also all those on the frontage road. I wonder how long it will take for them to look like palm trees again? I'll let you know!
Because.....it's official, we're working the winter season in guest services again.
All is right in our world
