House Sitting in Phoenix

We went on a farewell hike with Rick and Jill before they headed off towards Florida. They introduced us to the Maricopa trail that strings along with the Apache Wash. The trail was fairly remote with little traffic, had lots of birds singing, and Rick pointed out that there were flowers starting to bloom.

The last two weeks we have been house sitting for Erin and Brendan in downtown Phoenix. They introduced us to acro yoga and the reason we are house sitting is they flew down to Costa Rica to host a yoga workshop. It has been a nice break from the road. Michelle spent some time booking and it looks like we will be back in SD from June to September. I spent the majority of the time learning more about html, css, and javascript. Now to think of a reason to use javascript on the website... We also were able to do some research on the places we'll be travelling to.
