It's not JUST about what I had for breakfast...

Out Again

I went down to Border Field State Park this morning to find the geocache in the southwestern corner of the continental United States.  Since the vehicle gate is locked during the week I had to walk the mile and a half there, and back again.  Along the way I saw many horses, and people riding them, and a couple of bicyclists.  I saw the Mexican islands out in the Ocean Blue, 

and I saw a lot of birds, like these.

I don't know what kind of bird this was, but it was flying over the beach in Mexico.

After finding the cache I walked back to vehicle, naturally, and saw flowers like these, which I call tomato flowers, for no reason I can think of.

I saw quite a few Border Patrol vehicles, of course, and even a few (officers, not vehicles) on foot out in the bushes.  They ignored me, though.

I stopped by the Big Wing at Mongomery-Waller Park to find a couple of caches, and not find one.

I found a few more, here and there, and didn't find one that I didn't find in 2010, so there you go.

Total today was 11 found, two not found. The daily average for 2014, so far, is  2.5922, so I am on goal.

On another note, I clicked one of those stupid Yahoo links and actually learned something. How to tie my shoes properly!  Try it, I used the technique this morning and didn't have to retry my shoes all day!

And on yet another note, in the course of trying to find information on the 31 runway at Lindbergh field I found out, or finally realized, that Lindbergh did not take off to the east coast from what would be Lindbergh field, but from the field of many names, variously called Dutch Flats, Ryan, Mahoney, and Speer, Airport. Check out the link, I have found that site to be very interesting over the years.  There is a particularly interesting 1939 color map of the bay that show both airfields.  You can see that part of the present-day land has not been filled in yet, the part where Lindbergh Field mostly is now.

Well, I can't think of anything else, stay safe out there!

Those flowers are called "nasturtiums".

What did you eat at the taco shop?

Thanks for the info., oh Anonymous commenter! I had a beef quesadilla, which was really too large, and the beef was a little bit too chewy for my old teeth. I forget what M. had, but it came with guacamole and sour cream on the side.
