Always in the shadows learning, but now wearing my invisible cloak for good.
What once was unknown is now known. What once was new is worn. End of the line.
5 years doesn't seem like a long time ago. But it has changed me in ways I never imagined. Now I join "the others" who also have vanished from the public spotlight. Africa, Australia, Fiji, Cape Verde, the Arctic, Argentina.........
A woman once told me as a beginning birder, "The first two years are the most exciting because everything is new. But then the game gets harder." During my 4 years as a birder, it was all thrilling. Then, during this 5th year, I felt a shift happen. The game has gotten harder and my patience shorter.

While I am here in Tucson, I will enjoy the birds. I will save the $$ and then on my time off, I will fly.

As you'll see, Las Aventuras is heading out for some fun along the ocean in a few short weeks. I'm looking forward to birding alone for awhile. As the weather cools down, the epic birding will start to take off! So many stories to tell over the next several weeks....so stay tuned for more:)
