After spending a few hours taking a long walk through the neighborhood and making a multitude of phone calls to try and keep the new house and back-end of the move on track, we headed out in search of a shopping district I'd seen listed in a Tucson guide.
The Lost Barrio. Thank God for GPS because otherwise it would have remained lost!
It's a one block warehouse district chock full of interesting imports, art, antiquities, handmade furniture, Mexican handicrafts, etc.... After three hours of browsing, my head was spinning. In particular, I was looking for some type of credenza I could use as an entertainment center in the new great room.
Once again I found myself without camera, so I substituted the cellphone to snap some pics of the area.
In order to lure Craig, I promised him lunch at El Charro on the way. Here he is with his platter of El Charro tacos.
After our foray into Tucson, we needed some relaxation. Craig claims he used the weight room and fitness facility in our new community, but I can't verify that because I spent my time at the pool!
So far this move seems to be a win-win! What's not to love?
