We finally took off yesterday at 5pm after many fits and starts, small catastrophes and a number of distractions. Since we were only driving from Oracle to Nogales, the later than anticipated start wasn’t a problem. Just hard on the nerves.
We camped (pulled in in the dark) at Pena Blanca Lake. Possibly the worst porta-potty situation I’ve ever seen. Well, no, there was that other time….
Anyway, this morning we drove to Nogales.
I stayed in the car while he proceeded down the street. While waiting (because we didn’t put money in the parking meter and didn’t want a ticket), I took a couple of snapshots through the car windshield. I think these are cropped to omit the dead bugs on the windshield.
From here we proceeded north. Well, I guess it was the only way to go at this point. We made a number of stops along the way. The shot below was taken in Tumacacori at the Santa Cruz Chili and Spice Company. A great place! While there, I just had to take a shot of the sign that says, Watch Out Falling Palm Fronds.
More tomorrow, as we continue north.
