The view from our side yard -- A Babbling Brook!!!
One of the first people we saw after setting up was Phil. We had run into Phil several times in the past few months. In fact, we heard that he had won Gold in two Basketball events in the Palm Desert Senior Games -- The Free Throw and The Hot Shots!! When we asked him about it, he showed us his medals -- Impressive!!
Phil had told us he was coming to TT Pio Pico and how much he enjoyed the area because of the hiking and the Watercress that grows here. He agreed to take us on a short hike to gather Watercress that grows in a nearby creek. I was excited.
Before leaving, however, Phil and Ken argued about who had the better hiking sticks!! Phil's stick was made from Yucca cactus and Ken's was made from Saguaro cactus ribs. Both were strong and light weight!! But, Ken's was prettier!!
Thank you, Phil, for the adventure and the Watercress!! I have already made a delicious sandwich of soft bread and butter and Watercress. UUMMMMM!!
