|We have left Tucson's TMM parking lot and have a number of things to talk about as we are head SOUTH. What? After packing up, we killed three birds with one stone. We got diesel, went to the Botanical Gardens and brought groceries from the SAME parking lot. The gardens are behind a shopping center with a gas station attached to a food store. Obviously this beautiful place was some one's mansion years ago and was turned into a botanical gardens. It was fantastic. Multiple themes and the beauty of the desert. Hard to beat. We only hope we have inspired some of you reading to visit the lesser known parts of Arizona.The variety and beauty is beyond belief. On our way south from Tucson we stopped to see NOMADS Gary and Jeanne (Jeannie) our leaders for the project at TMM. After a trip to Mexico they are back being NOMADS working on a church project in southwest Tucson. After a very nice visit we pulled into an RV RESORT(we don't do this much). I went swimming in the heated pool and enjoyed the jacuzzi while Shirley cooked dinner(her choice). When I got back we had no electricity. Not a huge thing for us since we have alternate on board fuel choices. But, still troublesome. We blew a circuit breaker. One can reset the breaker but something caused that. We found the culprit to be the 30 AMP plug I repaired three weeks ago. Shirley fixed it this time, however we need a new one when a hardware store next appears. A success story none the less as we have full electric once again. Great to see friends and be footloose and fancy free! Enjoy the pics.
