Man, were we surprised! This club has 50 skeet shooting stations (4 shooters/station) on 380 acres, a 9,000 sq. foot club house, buildings for various shooting clubs, a restaurant, bar and 200 FHU 50amp RV sites (available to club members only).
There were nearly 200 contestants shooting this morning, and the competition goes on into the night. The shooting range is lighted. These shooters were sure going through the shells and clay pigeons. A great deal of money here not counting the thousands of dollars many of these guns cost or the hundreds of RV's parked in the campground. But the men and women shooters and spectators were having a fun day!
We then headed to a historical section of Tucson to see some of the restored historical homes. Nice that these homes were saved and restored.
Our next stop was the Old Town Artisan area.
This block of about 20 small stores were filled with items produced by local artists. There is also a restaurant where we could enjoy lunch or dinner. We were surprised with the pricing. Although many of the pieces were pretty expensive, a person could also pick-up a piece at a reasonable price. Of course, Marsha found a couple “early Christmas” presents for a couple of her friends.
We guess rocking horses are out and rocking pigs are in.
Our last stop was one of the many Tucson bike trails. We had loaded our bikes in the truck so we could ride the Rillito River Park Trail. This trail is still under construction and will eventually be a circular route, called the Loop, and will cover about 25 miles. The trail along the east side of the river is complete, so we wanted to ride down and back on the same side.
Our good intentions soon flew out the window when we realized the direction we were heading was a very gradual uphill slope. After about six miles of huffing and puffing, we sadly decided to turn around and head back to the trail head. Ahhhh.... going back was much easier! We have some conditioning to do, that's for sure!
We returned to the RV Park to relax for the rest of the day. Blogger friends, Larry and Gerry, Road Runner, stopped by for a short visit. They are staying at the opposite end of the park. We had a nice chat and enjoyed the visit.
Yesterday, we were lucky enough to meet up with friends from our church back in Canton, Ohio. Barb and Bob are spending a month in Tucson, and we both had Wednesday afternoon free. What a blessing it is to not only do we get to meet up with blogger fiends, but meet up with friends from back home.
Bob, Barb, Marsha, Paul
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
