Bill at 29 Palms Gallery

The closing weekend of the Hwy. 62 Studio Tours included the opening of a juried show at the 29 Palms Art Gallery. Bill won third place for his photograph of a shore bird titled "Intent." Yay Bill!

We spent the weekend tooling around artist studios in Joshua Tree, 29 Palms, and Wonder Valley with our friends Timothy and Judy Hearsum, also formerly of Santa Barbara. Our favorite acquisitions were these ceramic pieces by Anahita King. The teapot is the stuff fairy tales are made of!

This week a coyote has been coming to drink at the water dish just outside the dining room window. He was not too shy about it, as you can see here. Usually we just have bunnies and birds...though the larger animals are definitely catching on. In the past couple of weeks I've seen a hawk in a tree nearby.

I'll leave you with a couple of sunset views from our backyard. Fall seems to be a great time for spectacular sunsets. Tonight we'll be watching for the space station as it passes overhead around 5:45 pm!
