it ain't all pretty landscapes...

Guess where we spent the last 1.5 days? It's hard to guess, as it's a place where I don't like to spend time. a mall, and this case the Tucson mall. Why, oh why would one spend so much time at a mall? No, it wasn't for escaping the roaring heat, but it for sure was a welcome change. Our RV Betsy was due for a proper repair of the steering fluid leak, and let's just say it took a bit longer than hoped. With nothing interesting close by, and with no available rental cars due to a Honda recall, we hopped into the bus and joined the mall walkers (never heard of that term, but Tod explained that people go to a mall to exercise, to stay out from the heat). On the upside, Tessa had a ball playing with several different kids at the indoor play ground, and I scored some great 70% off deals on new clothing for her (hey you gotto find something to do when you have  7+ hrs to kill at a mall)

More enjoyable times in Tuscon were spent with our cruising friends Joel and Chris of s/v 40 Love at their house.  Biking around Catalina State Park, visiting the Puma county fair, and spending a night at the campground next to Saguaro National Park.

Midway to San Diego now in non descript Yuma. No county or state parks here, and all the RV parks have a 55+ yrs requirement. Luckily we found a flexible one, where we can stay for the night.

spend hours at the petting zoo
