Departing early in the morning, I drove to Veteran’s Oasis Park in Chandler for one last visit this winter. A few birds posed as I walked the trails. I returned to Palm Creek, and then left before sunset to visit the normally closed Casa Grande National Monument for a luminary ceremony honoring the birthday of its first caretaker. There were a number of people there, many with children, making slow-speed photography (nighttime) difficult at best. I left there driving to the Tucson International Airport to pickup Kay returning from Arkansas. The airport provides a “cell phone” parking area near the gates for cars waiting on incoming passengers; after having arrived, the passenger may phone their pickup in the parking lot—neat and handy. Kay was glad to be back to great weather in Arizona.
