Exploring Tucson

[caption id="attachment_441" align="aligncenter" width="378" caption="Gargoyles in Tucson"][/caption] Leaving one of our favorite small drive through restaurants, we turned into this neighborhood to get to another traffic light.  This compound had high cinder block walls, and gargoyles perched atop.  It was a small fortress, with a beautiful iron gate.  I suppose they wanted privacy!

It's been a great week in Tucson, shopping, of course, and taking a class in glass casting. I learned so much from all the wonderful artists here! My friend & fellow jewelry designer and I have the routine down, our 7th trip to shop & take classes.  We have our favorite Mexican food restaurants, and tried a few new ones this year. One is a possible keeper, the other will not need repeating.  Tonight will be our last dinner out, so we'll flip a coin to see which "favorite" we'll choose.  We've been known to board the plane with fresh HOT tortillas.  On Sunday, we'll shop until 3pm when we are forced to head for the airport!  I found some amazing stones to add to my work.
