Celeste threw a party and we had a wonderful time saying good-bye to one another over several bottles of wine:) It's hard saying good-bye. I just hide it better than most. Life revolves around birds for me BUT life is more than just the birds. It's about the people and friendships that form because of the birds.
By the end of the week, I felt like we had done an amazing job exploring the world of Arizona. A special thank you to Celeste, Dom, Gordon, Chuck, Cynthia and Roger for one hell of a week. The Lesser Sand Plover trek lasted 4 days total and what an amazing trek it was! Kathie, I miss you and love you. Our next trek will be to Monhegan Island. You will not get sea sick. And maybe Gordon will join us? For now, I am going to rest. My body and mind are both exhausted. Life is a wonderful adventure but I sure do need my sleep:) Until next time.....
