Today was another beautiful, sunny day and quite warm for traveling – thank goodness for A/C in the truck! We got away from Del Pueblo shortly after 10, on the way out we had to stop and pay the final electric bill - $11.52 for 23 day, guess we can handle that, and John wanted a bag of ice to put down the toilet, we have read this is a good way of cleaning it when you are traveling so thought we would try it. We had a good uneventful drive to Tucson, about 415 km and arrived at the park shortly after 3:30.
We had planned on staying at Justin’s Diamond J RV Park but in the last week I have been in e-mail contact with a co-worker of my sister-in-law and they happened to be staying at a park next door and she had e-mailed that they had checked out Justin’s and the sites are bigger but the park they are in has a pool and Wi-Fi, that was enough to change our minds so we are now at Desert Trails RV Park in Tucson. I was having withdrawl symptoms thinking about a week or so without wi-fi and a pool!! John picked a spot with a little park and pond behind us and there is water running into the pond so it is nice to hear the sound of water once again; once we got set up here we went for a refreshing swim and we have wi-fi so I am a happy camper!! Hopefully tomorrow we will meet Gil and Ginny and thank them for telling us about this park.
It is amazing the difference between here and Yuma, Yuma is all desert whereas here there is so much greenery and flowers – like night and day difference. When we were at the pool a couple of people pointed out a Great Horned Owl who had made a nest in a palm tree at the side of the pool and had her babies there. It was quite something to see her just sitting there guarding her young, apparently the male has a nest not far from hers. We couldn’t get a glimpse of the babies – darn, but sure had a good view of mom.
I am tired tonight, don’t know why but I find a day on the road tiring. Today I indexed all the states and provinces with tabs in our new Trailer Life Directory – another job done and a good one to do while traveling but it certainly wasn’t taxing!!
There is no cable TV here so tonight we are using the atenna and tomorrow John will see if he can get ExpressVu set up; and so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to the mystery of tomorrow.
