This morning we walked over and introduced ourselves to Ginny and Gil and had a nice visit with them for a while.
After that we decided to drive Gate’s Mountain Pass that they had said was really nice and it was a beautiful drive and the scenery is stunning. We can’t believe how green everything is here and there are so many blooms, absolutely gorgeous and our park has all kinds of beautiful gardens with cacti, it is certainly different from Yuma. We are fascinated with the Saguaros and there are so many of them here in the Tuscon area, there is a huge one next door to us and the birds are constantly flying in and out of the holes they have made for nests.
Looking West From Gates Pass
Lots of Saguaros
These are Pretty to Look At But DO NOT TOUCH!
After driving over the pass we tried to find a Wal Mart and couldn’t find one but did find a Wal Mart Neighbourhood Market which seems to be a new thing, it is groceries, beer, wine and a pharmacy but as I was just looking for groceries it did the trick.
When we got back John started to put up the ExpressVu but it is a job to be finished tomorrow. This evening Gil and Ginny came over for a visit and we really enjoyed their company, unfortunately Gil wasn’t feeling well so he went home early but we enjoyed our visit with Ginny and found all kinds of things to talk about. It is always nice to meet new people and among other things discuss where we have been and where we are going, usually we all pick up some new tips.
It is late so I will wait and post this in the morning, my bed is calling me.
