Bye Arizona - to East Coast

Sunday to Tuesday March 7 to 9/10

Packed up on Sunday after a lovely lunch at the famous Francisco Grande Hotel outside of Casa Grande with Tom and Lynn. This is a famous hotel and John Wayne had the penthouse suite there for many years. It was built as part of a spring training base for the San Francisco Giants but now is used more by soccer teams. It has a swimming pool that is the shape of a bat and the hot tub is the ball.

Rainy Monday morning we were on the road by 9:30 AM headed for the East Coast and more sunshine for March. South of Tuscon Arizona we travelled through the Texas Canyon - giant rocks mark the landscape - like a scene from The Flintstones. More pictures of the canyon on website. We passed through New Mexico and spent the night past El Paso Texas in the old town of Sierra Blanca (run down campground beside the railway and the highway - ear plugs needed to sleep).

Tuesday we had a bright sunny day with a tailwind and stopped for the night about an hour west of San Antonio Texas. This campground was much nicer than last night but challenging because it was on a hilltop. We enjoyed a delicious steak and shrimp dinner at the Po-Po family Restaurant down the road from the campground.
