sweetwater wetland

Today Homer took me to see some ancient rock art and other prehistoric things just a stroll from his house:

After that we met some of Homer's friends at The Adobe Guest House, a cute garden paradise and guest house that I highly recommend for visits to Tucson:

Later on we went to the Sweetwater Wetland to spot some waterfowl. The artificially created area is a tertiary treatment for Tucson's sewage, which also happens to be a great place to see birds, like this cute Gambell's Quail:

Here's a Great Egret and some turtles:

And I think this is an American widgeon, but I left my bird book at home, so I'll have to check later:

Tomorrow we head out to the Grand Canyon, but I think Homer would rather pass up on that newfangled skywalk that was just built. Plus it isn't open yet. On the way back through Phoenix we'll be visiting Brian and woofy Chris.

Brett: scoliosis.

Canuck: for those of us who require footwear function beyond the boundaries of the gay ghetto, sometimes our choice of shoes transcends trends and are chosen on the basis of function and comfort rather than adhering to a fashion norm.

And I most certainly will not buy Crocs, fyi.

That Canuck is a funny one.

And your butt does look nice and poofy in that photo. I hope Homer gets to tap it. Y'all need to solidify that relationship.

Funny, Target and Nordstrom both sell Crocs.
