FEB 4, 17 .. A NICE, SHORT, VERY SWEET, TWO-DAY TRIP

Patti and I left Phoenix Arizona this past Thursday the 2nd of February 2017 and drove approximately 100-miles South to the Tucson Arizona metro area. The drive took us about 2-1/2 hours and was basically first getting out of the Phoenix (upper red balloon) metro area onto the Interstate ( I-10 ) and then driving down I-10 to the Tucson (lower red balloon) area.

A closer look at the trip. Patti and I stayed in Marana Arizona (center red balloon) a small community just North of Tuscon and spent much of the day Friday in Tucson (lower red balloon).

Getting out of the Northern part of Phoenix (upper red balloon) and onto I-10 took about as long as the drive South on I-10 to Marana and Tuscon !!

Below are a few of the photos that I snapped during our two-day outing.

I think that I will never tire of seeing and photographing members of the Saguaro Cactus family.

It was a great get-away for the two of us.

“Captain? Was it just what the doctor ordered?”

“Yes Indeed !! It was just what the doctor ordered !! ”

Smiles and Joy .. Patti and Cap

      We met with the Doctor this afternoon Ginny and all is both well and swell with Patti’s sleep pattern as to NOT having any Sleep Apnea symptoms. No answers for her insomnia however and that is why we saw the sleep Doctor. Smiles .. Cap
