Desert dust and the fairy sparkles / glitter that comes with it is neither a pleasant sight nor a pleasant feeling when I rub my hand over a flat surface.
Thus, I clean dust out of corners and polish the cabinetry. Vacuuming the carpeting and washing tile in the kitchen and bathroom area and window washing becomes the excitement of the day. Grit is everywhere!
I love the desert, I do not love it's high winds and dust storms. Thus, We leave Blair Valley which is one beautiful part of the Anza Borrego State Park.
We drive through Warner Springs and the Palomar Mountain Range. As we approach Temecula, we see wild horses! Are they really leaping over the highway? How do they have the strength to make that huge leap?

We left with our money still in our pockets.
Tomorrow, we head back to Oceanside and Carlsbad State Beach.
Hopefully, I will soon have photos of the Pacific Ocean and more activities to share with you.
No, horses cannot jump over the highway. They are more work of Ricardo A. Breceda: Sculptor/Designer. He is the
