It’s Bird, it’s a Plane, it’s a Submarine(bird)!


Call off all the search parties!  I’m still here – and occasionally blogging!

It’s been a while since I sat down here for an update.  As I recall, I was just leaving the Grand Canyon?  Well from there I headed down to the Interstate on the way to somewhere new – or different, at least.  I pulled into Williams, Az ready to boost the local economy with a fuel and grocery purchase and who knows what else.

Then I saw the posted price for diesel!IMG_6274


Posted prices in Flagstaff (about 30 miles away?) were about a dollar cheaper.  So I took my cash with me and fuelled up in Ash Fork at a much more reasonable rate, and bought groceries and other goods in Bullhead City instead.

I decided to head out to Nevada Telephone Cove on Lake Mohave, but the winds were really blowing, so I took advantage of the time to catch up on loose ends around Bullhead City.  Finally, it calmed a bit so I headed out there.  Water levels were low, as they were a year ago at this time, so there were only a few campers around and lots of choices for camp spots.  I thought that by delaying my blog by several weeks, no one would find me, but I was barely set up before he found me.  He tried to hide his rig in the trees, but Hailey soon sniffed him out.


And left some paw prints on the windshield and hood of his truck.


Yes, it was none other than Wandering Willy!


There were birds …


And there were planes …


And, flying submarines!


And nightly prowlers …


There were stealthy hunters …


More birds …


Some movie-star ducks …

  1. Nice bird pictures, I especially like the actions shots of the gulls!

  2. While we love Williams, AZ, we totally agree with you about the diesel prices, ridiculously expensive! We quite often drive up to Beaumont were diesel is almost $1.00 cheaper.

  3. Nice pix; especially the last one. Looks like a place I need to check out.

  4. From the above, I can say that you’re an avid photographer. From those real birds to the man-made flying machines and the flying submarines, to mention, my personal favorite are the nightly prowlers. Admire your work, mate.
