B Is for...

Bee, and borage.

(Pic from last year...the borage hasn't bloomed yet this year.)

Day Trip to the Salton Sea: Bombay Beach

 

Our final stop was Bombay Beach. Bombay Beach was once a "resort" town (allegedly), but when the sea (it is really a lake, technically) began to become overly salty and polluted in the 1970s, Bombay Beach's fortunes fell. 

Artists have made artworks in and around the abandoned buildings--but they are not all abandoned; according to the last census, 295 people lived there. There is an art exhibition/festival every year, and some of these pictures are of artworks from previous shows. 

It is rather creepy there, I must admit...we didn't get out of our car (except to take a selfie in front of the giant airplane artwork). 



This is the only restaurant in the area--and it is closed due to COVID, of course.



















As we were slowly driving along, all of a sudden, in front of us, appeared a pack of wild dogs! Tiny, tiny dogs...

(They are actually not wild--they all ran up a driveway as we approached.)




And why not a tiny pack of tiny dogs in eerie/sad/fascinating Bombay Beach?
