We drove 53 miles from Benson to Tucson...not too far today. Great weather 85 and sunny. Arrived at the RV park around 10:30 and was set up in 15 minutes. Mishap for today we blew a fuse on the Saturn...this is the fuse we have to take out when we are towing. We had to take a back in site so that means unhooking the car first...so we are out in the middle of the street and put the fuse in and the car does not start. Lucky the same fuse is used for the power windows so we did a little switch and started the car with no windows. Off to Walmart to get a fuse...couldn't buy 1 had to buy a whole set for $18.88...only us. Well, all fixed and we are off to the desert. The desert was just beautiful, sunny and hot!!!! Just so many colors out there with some of the cactus in bloom. The Indians think the saguaro are people put back on the earth...they do look a little like people with their arms out...it's a great way to look at life in the desert! We spent the whole day out there...awesome. We tried to go to the Old Western Town of Tucson but it was closed so we will hit it tomorrow. Back to the campground and into the hot tub...the pooled was closed for cleaning...the hot tub was not refreshing but definitely relaxing. This evening we went back to Walmart...needed a new camera battery...mine keep dieing. Hopefully it is the battery and not the charger as the store clerk didn't know where to buy a new charger...we will see tomorrow.
