Heading Home From Tucson

Of course eventually we had to come home and left our little "route 66ish" revamped motel.

Of course we found the best Mexican Food that morning, by wandering the streets of the oldest part of Tucson called the "Presido" where the first wall was built like in the mid 1700's. The houses were all renovated and definitely where I would live if I could live in a place that the temp reaches over a hundred most of the summer- I might be complaining about the snow this winter- but I am a Colorado/Mountain girl to my bones. We found Little Cafe Poca Coso, not because of our fancy aps on our smartphones or trip advisor- but by the old fashion way and best way of asking a local.

We found The Grille a few days before the same way- a very scary building in the un-renovated area of Tucson's downtown, that served gourmet breakfasts and another good local Mexican restaurant by asking a "cute guy" in Borders- someone else did, I didn't.
The Davis Bilingual Elementary school was having an art show at the Cafe- wow- was impressed with what the Art Teacher was doing with these kiddos and of course I had to be a patron and buy some art work!

But with very happy tummies it was time to go home- and in a little village outside of Tucson- we found a way we could fuel our souls as well! The church we started with Matt and Wendy, our fellow Tucson travelers, is in a old Creamery Building- so we appreciated a church housed in an old gas stations!

Of course - the morning of our return-this is what we woke up to!

 But it melted fast because Easter, after churched we had about 50 people over for lunch and they did get to enjoy the new pergola ( structure over table,)we had put up in the Fall but not really enjoyed yet!
Sun is shining now- and Spring Break is over and everyone is back to work and school- including me!!
