This adventure is on the coldest day we could have chosen. The wind is blowing a little, and the clouds are playing peek-a-boo with the sun. We parked at the convention center parking lot where we originally intended to see the quilt show. After paying $8 for parking and anticipating $10 each for the quilt show, I opted to find the Presidio, which is the remains of an old fort in the middle of downtown Tucson. Today was a reenactment day. They had demonstrations, food, and cannon firings. The guys in the picture above told Ginny that they made those coats they are wearing. I sure could have used one. Below is the courtyard just before you enter the gift shop. We hung out there for a while to warm up.
Above is the courthouse; I keep repeating myself by saying that I want to come back another day and take more pictures. Below are the office buildings that I just love to take pictures of because of the reflections of the clouds.
Ginny is taking pictures also. It's strange the way her jacket is the same color as that wall. The turquoise blue line on the brick pavement is what we followed to get to the Presidio. We also found Tucson's Old Town full of old shops, courtyards with food vendors, and some things I might want to buy.
On Monday we went to the Quilt Show at the Historical Society's Museum. Arizona is celebrating their Centennial the same as New Mexico. I took close to 100 pictures of quilts. These three wall hangings are among the best in my opinion. They really depict Arizona. Notice the "Do not touch" signs. They were absolutely necessary. That was the first thing you wanted to do.
This is the outside of the building which is actually on the University of Arizona campus. In fact, the bookstore was directly across the street. The admission was reasonable with free parking in a covered garage. My kind of outing!
