Chuck and Sandra

We went to the San Xavier Del Bac Mission and it was incredibly beautiful. This is the northern most Mexican Mission built when this part of the country was Mexico. Built between 1783 and 1797 this is the original religious settlement of Father Kino. He was gone when the mission was built. It was refurbished in the 1990's and really is spectacular. We ended our day with game night. Mexican train dominoes was the game of choice for Chuck, Sandra, Dave, Karen, Shirley and me. We played a great number of hands. Everyone brought something snacky to share and we had a wonderful time. The lab says my supplies should be here today and if so we will be leaving either tomorrow or Thursday to continue our trip. We have been in the parking lot for 54 days....but who's counting. Enjoy the pics.
