The wildflowers are in bloom on the desert floor. There are dense areas of sand verbena, and desert evening primrose. Depending on where one looks, there are poppies,lupine, popcorn flower, and brown eyed primrose spreading out like a gently waving carpet. The great blue herons are nest building on the cardon cactus, but I don't think there are eggs or chicks yet.
The sea of Cortez was still yesterday. There was almost no wind. It was a perfect day to kayak. We saw jellies, and were greeted by two sea lions surfacing around us.
