We thought we'd beat the heat (104 degrees today) and go for an early morning walk in the area around Tom and Tina's house. We ended up walking almost 7 miles before we got home. We enjoyed seeing the desert flora and fauna (a coyote eating a rabbit) close up!
In the afternoon we went to the Evergreen Cemetery where Ed's parents were buried. This tree was very small 23 years ago!
We also stopped at the baby land section of the cemetery where Lydia Joy (Melissa and Steve's baby) was buried last year.
Afterwards we went to downtown Tuscon where we rode the light rail. It was so nice and air conditioned that we didn't want to get off!
The street car dropped us off on a 4th Avenue, a cute little shopping street downtown.
There was a real mix of stores and restaurants, but in general it was a bit like a trip to Nogales, Mexico, with lots of Mexican artisanry.
We capped off our Mexican day with a delicious dinner at La Hacienda, back in Oro Valley. It specializes in food from the Yucatan, and we enjoyed the Cochinita Pibil, which reminded us our our trip to the Yucatan!
