The sun peeked over the mountains as started out on my run this morning - it was a nice cool 80, or so, degrees at 6:15am. Beautiful conditions for a morning run.
My run lead me from the hotel up the road, passed by the shopping center, car dealership (the not so exciting part of the run) and then through some deserty areas where I spotted this:
The Prickly Pear Cactus seems to be a vivid purple in the early morning sunlight. It really stood out in the background of the brownish sand.
Next was this:
Some kind of yellow-orange flowering plant. The vivid orange really caught my eyes.
I ran to the ice rink that Matthew & his team are playing at and then back to the hotel. A nice 9 mile run in the morning light and a good way to start the morning.
Matthew's team is doing well...won both of their games yesterday.
We are getting ready to leave the hotel for game #3...Go Sharks!
It is easy enough to be pleasant,
When life flows by like a song.
But the person worthwhile is one who will smile,
When everything else goes wrong.
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Take care...until the next time, remember...
