Sunday, January 18 – Since Thursday, La Mesa RV here in Tucson has had a free RV Show at the Pima County Fairgrounds where we are camping. We’ve walked over a couple times to window shop. They must have 100+ RV here at the campground. We have no desire for a new RV but it's fun to see what's available in the 2015 model year.
Our two favorites were the Lifestyle which purchased production rights to the former Cameo, which we own, and a motor home on the 550 Ford truck chassis. We'll stick with our 2010 Cameo - it's paid for and serving us well!
Today, we went to Heirloom Farmer's Market held at Rillito Park in north Tucson. It is the newest and biggest framer's market in Tucson.
There was fresh vegetables and baked goods every where. Of course, we had to try a baked good.
We really enjoy seeing all the local produce and local food items available at farmer's markets. We tasted several different local food items purchasing some Pepitas, which are make from pumpkin seeds and sea salt. They look like roasted coffee beans. Google says Pepitas is a Spanish term for pumpkin seeds....huh! They are very tasty. We also purchased some dried strawberries which also make a nice snack.
We enjoyed a couple cups of freshly roasted coffee as we walked among the booths talking to the local vendors. They are always so friendly and the free tasting is neat too!
If you are in Tucson on a Saturday or Sunday, give it a try. We think you won’t be disappointed…but maybe a little lighter in the pocketbook.
It was a gorgeous day with temperatures eventually soaring to 85 degrees by mid-afternoon. Bella joined us outdoors in the sun, relaxing and taking in the warmth of the Southwestern sun. Nice to be in shorts and t-shirts again!
Almost forgot......while out today, Paul stopped to fill-up on diesel fuel. Lowest price we've ever paid for diesel. Check it out!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great time!
