Back on the Trail – Finally

These last two months of moving in and getting settled in our house has wrecked havoc on our leisure activities.  Golfing, hiking, exploring and date nights were shelved for unpacking, sorting, hanging pictures, construction and installs.   Feeling completely exasperated with the sense of being held prisoner in our own home, we made a breakout escape … Continue reading Back on the Trail – Finally

Hiking, Theater, Playing Golf, and Lunar activities

It has been a busy week here in Tucson.  Besides our usual weekly trips to check on the progress of the house, daily walks, happy hours, and just sitting out enjoying the weather, we did manage to accomplish a couple of our favorite activities. The week started out with a great hike in Saguaro National … Continue reading Hiking, Theater, Playing Golf, and Lunar activities

Flying, Friends, and Art

Many of you following our blogs probably notice that most of our Arizona posts are about our hikes and outdoor activities or maybe bragging about the wonderful weather we have here.

Another Week, Another Hike

Well, another week has passed and yet again we somehow managed to find a nice day for another hike in southwest Arizona. 🙂 We have decided that since our eventual house is located on the far east side of Tucson, that while we are here in our RV at Davis-Monthan, we should focus our next … Continue reading Another Week, Another Hike

New Year’s Day Hike: Another new tradition

2018 started off with a bang.   Literally.  A couple of old fogies, we went to bed well before midnight.  We did get to wake up at midnight to ring in the new year thanks to the fireworks all around town.  So we kissed, said Happy New Year and went back to sleep! Ha-Ha! Apparently … Continue reading New Year’s Day Hike: Another new tradition

Why plan a big weekend of activities of course.  The celebrations started on Thursday and ran all the way through the weekend. We started things on Thursday with a trip to Sonoita, AZ for some wine tasting.  Our … Continue reading Anniverary Weekend: Wine, Leno and Bowling

Christmas in Tucson; Traditions New and Old

Wow, is it Christmas already? So hard to believe how fast time flies.  This year, for us, had quite a few firsts, as well as adopting some local traditions.  Our arrival in Tucson earlier in December went about as smooth as we could hope.  We are all settled down in our spot here at Davis-Monthan … Continue reading Christmas in Tucson; Traditions New and Old

Onward to Tucson

Wow, what a whirlwind couple of weeks.  After a week in D.C., we jumped waist-deep into the moving mode.  Even after our fourteen moves in the Air Force, the actual move week is always busy, tiring and a little nerve-wracking.  You never get completely comfortable watching total strangers touch, pick up, and pack everything you … Continue reading Onward to Tucson
