There are two large mesquite trees at Camp Quarantine. It is one of the reasons I wanted to stay here. It gives Beans something to enjoy. She likes sitting in the shade.
And there is climbing to do also.
We've been here for a few weeks and only just the other day
I spotted something odd at the base of the tree.
Sea shells in the desert!
For as weird and topsy-turvey 2020 has been so far, I thought these would be appropriate for a little memento of Camp Quarantine. The Little House on the Highway is like a rolling museum of interest probably only to me. I don't save something from everywhere we stay. Oh I have the occasional rock, bone or artifact from here and there most all of which I have since forgotten where it came from. A very few rocks I write on to preserve the site for memory. One is from where we camped in Wyoming to view the Great Solar Eclipse and it is glued to a shelf. Three small stones from each of the Great Lakes we visited two years ago sit on the counter by the sink.
I'll write on the long one-Camp Quarantine 2020-and glue it next to that small eclipse stone.
