Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itWoke up this morning! (that's a good thing ) and realized we are in Arizona. Finally, 6 weeks since we left Ontario and a lot of miles behind us, just over 3,000. We are at a higher elevation (4.633 Ft above sea level) and know we will have chilly weather but mostly sunny, and that works for us, 37F at 5 am but we slept well and toasty warm once we turn the heat on. About 7 am I got a very nice walkabout here get my heart pumping and the blood flowing, around most of the park roads about 1.5 miles to start. ended up with 4.2 miles today.
A bit more computing, coffee and walking then just after 10 am we hopped in the car to head out to Tombstone. A place I always enjoy (more than Suzie) maybe because we have been here so many times in the last 12 plus years. Just the cowboys, horses and my mind wanders back to the old western movies we have watched. Even the Movie Tombstone. We had done just about all the tourist things over the years many different gunfights, the OK Coral and others , the silver mine tour, The Birdcage Theatre, the stage coach rides. The Historama and even a few of the restaurants and bars. Big Nose Kates being our favourite.

It is nice to be early, off season and not so many people around but the shops and are all open, It does get busier later in the day and a special Christmas Parade tonight and celebrations.
This be Big Nose Kates the place that has some real south west atmosphere that makes me think of the old wild west. Nice and early and not too busy yet the time we like to got.
Lotsa choices and we got our favourite table in the left rear corner. Interesting menus on the tables but I know what I want a big ass beer and their excellent overstuffed Rueben.
|love the menus like a newspaper|
Our friendly waitress Sharon was right there for us and in a flash had us Big ass beers.

Now back home by 1 pm and can enjoy a wonderful sunny cloudless skies with no wind. Cool in the shade about 56F but in the sun it was very warm. I puttered around for a while and replaced another lift shock on a compartment door. It kept falling and hitting me of the head yesterday, so I fixed it good. I had my shorts and sandals on for most of the afternoon actually until 5 pm when it was cooling down rather quickly.
|love these Arizona blue skies|
|more quality reading time in the warm sunshine|
