Running out of Steam...

Isn't that always the case?

I mean, I go into these vacations/get aways with the intention to blog my little heart out, and then I'm like...phooey. I'll post it when I get home. But, that's just plain nuts...I'll be home tomorrow, and I think I'll be feeling a little let down about that and maybe, just maybe I won't want to blog about it...in particular. And sometimes I don't' really tell all about my feelings in this space but believe me, even though I'm not an actress, I still have all the feelings (summary of a quote from The First Wives Club) I just choose not to share them all here..I'm a bit internal like that.

So,
we'll press on with the vacation, what's left of it...and I'll do a bit of summary of yesterday:

*Woke up
*organized Airstream for flight
*said good-bye to Bisbee
*drove past more than one truck wash (making Rich and I shake our fists in the air, as he's been trying to get the Airstream washed for over a year...)
*arrived in Tucson
*unhitched the Airstream
*ate lunch
*Drove to San Xavier Del Bac
*too many people milling around for us to really stay and take a lot of pictures
*navigated the mostly closed freeway to find Anthropologie and the Mac store
*shopped Anthropologies fantastic sale (yippee!!)
*drove back to the Airstream
*tried desperately to find Ruffles bar-b-q potato chips resulting in a trip to a Food city that had an entire aisle for tacos and one for tamales...resulting in even more giggles...
*ate dinner
*Met Marla at the RV office and went out and actually found bar-b-q chips
*had a fantastic visit with her and her sweet 2 year old (who did a lot of hugging and flirting with Rich...and I think she would not have minded if Marla and I left...)
*said good-night
*went to bed

I have a ton of friends down in Tucson, and I really had no idea when we would be down there, and then for how long...and instead of alerting everyone, I decided to take the easy way out and hide about it. This does not mean that I don't love and appreciate any one of you, or that I didn't want to see you...I just didn't quite know how to wrangle it, and it's hard for me, while on vacation, to make a ton of plans and meet ups, especially since we are flying by the seat of our pants.

Today found us up and re-hitching to travel to Picacho Peak State Park to meet up with Terry and Greg, some fellow Airstreamers. After driving by Picacho Peak for years, my first thought was "why there?" I mean, it's just a rather large outcropping of rock in the middle of an otherwise flat desert. But, after we drove in, and got to the state park, I understood why. It's simply beautiful out here...

It may be the crazy rainy weather we're having, making everything more wet and colorful...but it's amazing here. I wish that it was a little less wet, but I think I shall go out for a hike soon...until we pack up for our final stop. Home...

Where I can have all my feelings.

Sorry you can't have all your feelings on your trip, I think I know exactly what you are talking about! The pictures are just amazing, can't wait for more.

LOVE the shot of the idols and candles... Also the mission ceiling.

Yeah, just thinking you were here, miles from me, makes me smile, so I appreciate it! Sometimes we just can't do it all and need to focus on the pure reason for the trip and what we want to do in the moment. What a great little trip it sounds like it was for you both!
