(Still in Texas) Catching Up (Visiting Bisbee and Happy Hour With Friends)

Thursday, March 12, 2020

We are stopped for the night in another Texas Rest Area off of I-20 near Van, TX. We started the day under cloudy skies but before long the sun was shining and checking temperatures along the way it was not long before it was in the 80's. After spending several months in the desert with all the cacti and lovely Ocotillos we are now seeing a lot of green grass. Today we could see leaves budding on the trees.

Lots of green grass along our way.
This morning as we were getting ready to leave we could see
this guy peeking out at us. 

Catching UP

Monday Shirley and Ken, Seeing America with Ken and Shirley arrived in time for Happy Hour.
The conversation for the next few hours never stopped. One of the things we discussed was going to Bisbee for lunch the next day.

We picked them up in the morning but before we took off we had a tour of their new "Mansion" and it is beautiful. I love Shirley's kitchen area I know she has more counter space then I do. Yes, I am just a little jealous.🌞 I of course never took a picture but I know she has put several out on her blog. We hope they have many fun trips in their new home away from home on wheels.

We peeked in here. We have walked by in the past but this was
the first time the gates were open. Checking online this is
actually an event venue. Those Iron Gates, no picture, we
walked in through are 100 years old.

This Plaza is in front of the Bisbee Mining and
Historical Museum.

Shirley kept walking.

Interesting little tidbit Tom and I had never noticed before.
These flies are on the Museum.

Taking a walk and checking out a couple of stores.
Saw this sign.

We stopped and had lunch at Santiago's Mexican Restaurant. We all thought the food was quite good and I enjoyed my Margarita. It may have been a little pricey but Tom and I have ate at a couple of restaurants in Bisbee and we thought the prices were in line with the other restaurants in the area. It is a tourist spot after all.

I did take a selfie before we got back in the Jeep to head home.
I am not sure why Tom is the only one who looks like he is
smiling because we all agreed we had a good time.
The area we were parked in is known as the
Historic Brewery Gulch. 

Heading back to Quail Ridge we took a quick side trip into
Tombstone to see the Linear Garden. 

Arriving back home it was almost time for Happy Hour. Deb and Riley, On a long and lonesome highway...., arrived followed by Doug and Michelle, and Shirley and Ken. Shirley came with snacks which we all enjoyed. It was a fun few hours and the conversation in the Stinger "B" never stopped.

This was definitely a good day. We spent the afternoon in Bisbee where we had a nice lunch with good friends. Came back and spent the evening enjoying a Happy Hour filled with conversation and laughter with good friends. A memory day for sure.

This would be the problem I sometimes encounter because I am behind with posting. I really do not remember what we did. I am thinking it was one of those days we just enjoyed and did not do anything but relax because I did not take any pictures.

We are glad you stopped by!
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.


  1. We enjoyed the get together! Doug and Michelle

    1. We enjoyed it, also. So glad it worked out and we were able to get together. Looking forward to the next time.

  2. Fun times with good friends is the best. And no pictures means you were relaxing and enjoying life. Bisbee is a great place.

  3. I do love that little garden. There is always new things to see. I think the best part of RV'ing is meeting up with all the friends you've met along the way.

    1. We agree that little garden is fun to check out each time we are in Tombstone. Spending time with friends we have met along the way is certainly one of the best parts of this lifestyle

  4. Enjoy the heat of Texas while you can. It will change soon enough as you head home. :) Be safe!

    1. We did enjoy the Texas heat and are now in We will not turn north for a while yet. Travel safe.

  5. Looks like you had a lot of fun with Friends.
    Like yourself we try to take pictures as a way of reminding us of what we did during the day.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the warm weather.

    It's about time.

    1. We did enjoy our time with friends. Pictures certainly do help remember were and what we did. Hopefully spring is coming quickly up north.

  6. Nice to see the greenery of Texas. Enjoy!
    You've had some fun times visiting.
    Safe travels!

    1. As much as we enjoy the desert it is always nice to start seeing the green again as we head east.
      Safe travels to you, also!
