Poolside

Today is our last full day here in Arizona. We leave tomorrow evening. It was our warmest day so far (85F) so we spent a couple hours relaxing by the pool soaking up some sun. Although we had the pool heater going all day the water was still too cold for swimming (74F). We'll try to sneak in some swimming time tomorrow if the water warms up.

This was my view from my comfortable chair - such white feet!

This little guy was tormenting me. I've been trying for three years now to get a good picture of a hummingbird. This one flitted from our lime tree to the saguaro cactus to the top of the tipu tree while I tried to take his picture. Finally got one while he/she sat still on the very top of the tree.


This is as far as we could go in the water. Once it hit the backs of our knees we wimped out - it was soooo cold. It was pleasant sitting with our feet dangling in the water though.

It's been a lovely week - a pleasant break from the cold and snow that'll be awaiting us as we get off the plane tomorrow night.

At least you were sitting in the sun! Can almost feel the warmth! Loving all those those beautiful palms around the pool too. Gorgeous!

You must be doing something wrong regarding the heater...when we were there in Jan (much much colder) I'd turn the heater on the morning and by the afternoon the water would be 80+.

85 sounds nice.

So by now your white feet are back in several layers of socks instead of soaking up some rays?? Hope you are having a break from the rigid winter like we are having today!!

Noooo...don't leavvvvvve! You've got to start coming down for longer periods of time. We haven't had lunch, yet. :)

BTW wasn't it 65 when we went in once?

Cold -- all those McCarthy's in Taylor's Head would smack ya for that. Coldest water ever.
