Amado and Tubac for my 60th birthday/Part II

Okay, posted this once already, tried to edit and somehow deleted all together! FB is much easier! Anyway, this is for you, Hettie. And for me, I guess too. A mixture of "artistic work" and just plain old snapshots. A duality.

Amado and Tubac for my 60th birthday/Part I

Mike took me on a 2-night RV trip for my 60th b-day. I found restaurant and he found RV park. Both worked out great. RV park was De Anza (Amado) and restaurant Elvira's (Tubac), one of the best restaurant experiences in my life! Everything was beyond perfect and beyond expectations. RV park had a great pool and whirlpool/spa, among other amenities...more to come on that in Part II post. Anyway, here are photos from day 1.
